Weekly Gaming Update 1/21/18

Here we are again. Another week of gaming in the bags. As we end week number 5 of this journey I started, I really took time in working towards completing some stragglers from 2017 that I still have yet to complete. In here The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lays.

I’m not 100% sure why I didn’t play BOTW (Zelda) all the way to story completion, but it is definitely the one game I am looking forward to completing most. After all the great things people have to say about it I am finally back in the swing of things. I finally got to the last “Divine Beast” that I need to complete in order to go defeat Ganon. However, before the final battle of the lizard Divine Beast I decided to get a little side tracked and do some side quests and discover some shrines. For the time being I will continue my journey of side quests and eventually defeat Ganon somewhere down the road.

In addition to Zelda, I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed Origins. I know I’ve spoken about this game in previous weekly updates, but this game is really sticking with me. I am now well over the 10 hour mark of the game and approximately 1/3 of the way through the main quests. I’m a level 19 and have been intrigued by the side quests for the first time in a very long time. I often find myself doing side quests for hours not even caring that I haven’t progressed through the main story in a few hours.

Well that does it for me this week. I plan to beat Zelda in the near future and even take down Assassin’s Creed Origins slowly, but surely.

Weekly Gaming Update 1/14/18

So this week was a fairly slow week for me. I’m trying to broaden my gameplay to something other than PUBG. I played a few different games including Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Super Mario 3D Land (3DS), Super Mario Maker (3DS), and I even got to play a little bit of Super Mario Odyssey.

I’m not entirely sure where this Mario kick is coming from, but I strongly am beginning to believe that Mario is one of the strongest, long-running franchises in all of gaming. I began playing so many Mario games after Mario Tennis was announced for the Nintendo Switch. It also doesn’t help that my girlfriend loves the franchise and playing different Mario games while lying in bed is something that is hard to come by. Especially since she hasn’t played a video game since the 50th time she played through Super Mario Bros. 3. All I know is I’m excited to continue riding this Nintendo train until there is no more coal.

PUBG. That all I have to say. I started the year off with a bang on Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. My very first PUBG match of the year resulted in a simple message. That message? “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!” That’s right. My first match of 2018 was a squad win. Man what a way to start off the year. That victory was on PC. Other than that I have come top 10 a LOT on the Xbox One version of the game.

Other than PUBG I haven’t played a whole lot this week. With a lot keeping me busy it was hard to get around to some serious gaming. This coming week I plan to try and play some more Assassin’s Creed Origins, but only time will tell if that actually happens or not.

Stay tuned here for reviews on both games coming in the near future. Also feel free to follow me on Mixer as I’ve spent a lot of time streaming games there. Soon I will be giving away a copy of Zelda: BOTW Explorer’s Edition to one of my followers so go over and follow me there for your chance to win!

Weekly Gaming Update 12/31

New Year New Me. Am I right? Not really because apparently I cannot stop playing PUBG. It consumes most of my gaming time every week and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Even with the flaws on the Xbox One consoles I still come back to play almost every night on the console.

Even with all my PUBG playing, I’ve managed to change it up a bit. I finally started playing Assassin’s Creed: Origins and man am I loving it. I haven’t played an Assassin’s Creed game since about two years ago when I played through II. I’ve never been too fond of the series, but II hooked me in when I got it as a free Games with Gold. Since then I have not even thought of playing any of the other installments of the series until Origins was announced. I don’t know what it is about the Egyptian setting of the game, but I’ve wanted to run around and climb some pyramids for quite some time.

Since beginning the game a few days ago, I’ve already logged about 9 hours into it. A combination of the story and side missions have me coming back for more. I can already tell that this is going to be one heck of a ride.
