Gaming in 2019


Games are an important part of entertainment and mental health in my life. This is just a way for me to keep track of what I’ve played and to share it with others.

I’ve long accepted that I will not complete games, but as long as I get what I want out of them, I’m fine with that.

Nintendo Switch

Microsoft Xbox One


Mass Effect: Andromeda

Microsoft Windows 10

It’s time to get back to this game. I had to step away after game-breaking issues with 21:9 resolutions after a patch about 3 months after launch, about 70 hours into the game. I haven’t been back since. Between Michael finishing it recently, and @worthless_bums and @SergeantIndie giving it such high praise recently (and I do appreciate their thoughts), I’m really inspired to get back to it since I really was enjoying my time with the game.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo Switch

Donut County

Nintendo Switch

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Microsoft Xbox One

I’ve never played an Assassin’s Creed game before, but I’ve heard a lot of neat things about this one.
