It’s hard to believe this year is almost coming to a close! November is here, and I’m trying to set a wider variety of gaming goals this month.
I know I’ll have a couple of snags in November — the Sims 4: Cats & Dogs expansion drops next week, and later in the month, the new Animal Crossing app releases. I know these will demand some of my time. But aside from that, here’s what I’d like to do this month!
- Level Paladin (Beast Tribes/Quests/Hunts) ✓
- Level Machinist (Alliance Raid Roulette) ✓
- Level Crafters
- Clean up Stormblood quests ✓
This month, rather than spread my attention across different characters, I want to focus on leveling a few different jobs on my main. I also want to mop up some of those unfinished Stormblood quests because they are seriously cramping the map with all those icons at this point!
- Play Mario Odyssey ✓
- Beat 3rd Divine Beast in BotW
- Complete Octopath Traveller demo
I’m making these goals in order to remind myself to stick to my Switch games. I picked up Mario for a short time last week, but I don’t want it to fall by the wayside. I also want to start to progress in Zelda: BotW again. I lost momentum in this game back when I had to send my Switch dock for repairs, and haven’t played it a whole lot since. Finally, I downloaded the Octopath Traveller demo back when it first launched, but haven’t played it. Need to fix that!
- Try 1 Steam game from my backlog each week
A conversation that fell on Steam gaming and backlogs from the other night reminded me that I’m falling behind on backlog clearing yet again. I actually picked up a couple of bundles lately (mostly because I just wanted one game from them), but I haven’t entered any of the keys into my Steam account out of shame. XD
Interestingly, I’ve noticed a trend where I’ll hear of a game on my Steam wishlist releasing for the Switch, and I’ll drop it from Steam for the Switch version. But this means my Switch is starting to see a tiny backlog beginning to build up, too. Noooo!
