2022 so far has been a strong gaming year. I have set gaming goals for myself to achieve this year as I want to tackle my video game backlog. Additionally, there are a few games I’d like to see myself re-play such as Life is Strange as there have been two new games released in the franchise I haven’t played yet. I wanted to share my latest gaming update starting off 2022.
I have been mainly playing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on my PS4. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this game has been such a blast to play. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is made by SQUARE ENIX who produced Marvel’s Avengers which was such a mediocre game to play. I only bought Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy because the game was highly rated. This would be the perfect game to play next year before the next Guardians of the Galaxy film is released.
I have also gotten back into Animal Crossing New Horizons. I played for two months straight last year and then I took a hiatus. Animal Crossing can get extremely repetitive especially because I still owe 400,000 bells on my house. I ended up missing the game, so I have been playing regularly throughout the month of January. I named my island MaplePeaks as I love fall. I want to make a spooky/autumn-themed island. I still have a lot of work to do to make my island what I want.
I have been currently playing through Nancy Drew Warnings at Waverly Academy. Whenever I play a Nancy Drew PC game, I like to play it in one sitting. I haven’t had a chance to finish the game, but I hope to in the next week. Besides Nancy Drew, I did try playing Parkasaurus which is a simulation game in which the player builds a zoo with Dinosaurs. Unfortunately, the game lagged quite a bit on my PC, so I ended up uninstalling this from my laptop. If I upgrade to a gaming computer, I may give this game another shot.
With the current spikes of Covid-19, I haven’t been out with friends playing board games. I hope to have a board game night soon. This is the one section of my gaming updates that I haven’t been able to share anything new which makes me sad. I love board games as it’s a huge part of my gaming identity.
I shared briefly in my last gaming update, but I’m in an ongoing D&D campaign. My group is playing through Curse of Strahd which is a campaign centering on a cursed prince who is revealed to be a vampire. My character is named Levenia Monterfo and she’s a half-elf blood hunter. She is a blood mage meaning she uses her own blood to cast spells. I love playing her character. I selected Eldritch Blast as a cantrip and I have been wreaking havoc in battle. I haven’t been in an ongoing D&D campaign since 2019.
I do want to get back into Adventurer’s League as well with my other character, Zehiri, a level #3 Tiefling paladin.
My husband for Christmas bought me a handheld Dig Dug electronic game. Dig Dug is my favorite arcade game and I played it a lot when I was a kid. I tend to play Dig Dug a few nights a week before I go to bed.
I love sharing these gaming updates. Gaming has been one hobby that I have found decreased over the past few years, and I feel that sharing these updates has helped get me back into gaming regularly.
