Five Game Challenge – 2020

Last year, I put myself through a bit of a challenge. A Five Game Challenge. You might’ve already gathered that though from the title, even if you weren’t here at the time. Though if you weren’t, possibly the finer points of detail might still elude you. Not to worry! Let’s play catch-up and relive the

My Favourites of the Passing Decade

These games of the year and decade lists started coming out quite early, and it really stressed me out! THERE WERE STILL MORE GAMES TO RELEASE! And alright, alright — as it turned out, probably not any of them were really anything to write home about. I had some hopes for MechWarrior 5. But those

Five Game Challenge Day 30: Wrap-up Journal

Booyah, final day. Basically done. The padlocks on the game list can be loosened. In fact I’m going to reward myself with a relaxation of the challenge after I get this post done and published. So… Ciao! …No? Well OK. I suppose we can take a slightly deeper dive into the whole thing. The November

Five Game Challenge Day 23: Multiplayer Motivation

Poor Skyrim. While it hasn’t quite fallen to the red-headed step-child levels of the other games in my challenge line-up, it has nonetheless played into a second fiddle role to Warframe of late. The thinking going into this is that Warframe would be something I’d play exclusively multiplayer with friends. I thought outside of a

Five Game Challenge Day 10: Ain’t no Mountain High Enough

Or at least, that is certainly the belief. I haven’t tried the ascent yet. Maybe the title should be, “He’ll be comin’ around the mountain” instead. Because that I did do. I took a different route from normal too. Usually I would strike out east from Whiterun and come around the Northern edge of the

Five Game Challenge Day 6: November Gaming Goals

Alright, true — this post is about 6 days late. But until yesterday I wasn’t remotely interested in setting regular monthly gaming goals for myself. As a means of unwinding and relaxation, who needs that? But I’m not opposed to the odd challenge. I mean… Yeah. *Points at title* I’m not going to consider this

Five Game Challenge Day 3: Becoming Dovahkiin (Again)

I thought this weekend might be filled with simply ‘getting ready’ to play things. As troublesome as extensively modding Skyrim might still be — it still went a lot faster than I remember from the days before mod managers and the like. Warframe of course needs no mods — just the update download, which I’ve

Five Game Challenge Day 2: Modding Skyrim

Selecting, downloading and installing mods for a Bethesda game used to be a multi-day process. I remember for Morrowind patches of spending more time in the Mod forums than actually playing the game. And then of course, once you did actually start playing it was a slow dance of trepidation and learning. Learning what your
