It is the end of the first month of 2018. Luckily I had some time off for Christmas and New Year so I got a bit more of a chance to play in amongst the blogging for Creative Christmas, family time, illness and cross stitching. I have had a fun month of gaming, but what have I been playing?
First up has been Super Mario Odyssey (NS).
This has been my go to game between Christmas and the end of my holiday (and a bit beyond). Even though I have finished the story (my first completion of the year) I am still trying to collect the Power Moons and buy the collectibles that are available at Crazy Cap. I am still having so much fun with this game, even though I am just collectible hunting now. I still go back to try to collect new Moons but it isn’t my go to game now. I love it.
I have also been playing Pokémon Ultra Sun (3DS).
As I said in my first impressions post I wasn’t so sure since it was very similar to Pokémon Sun. That said I have kept going and I going to continue on as I want to see when the story develops. I am enjoying it, it is just very similar in the beginning at least.
I also started playing Lumo (NS) and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (NS).
Not much time has been spent on Lumo so far. I have been on the first two pages as shown in your map in Lumo. Breath of the Wild I have been enjoying. I’m taking my time and exploring so I am very early on in the game still.
Another game that I have been playing is Assassin’s Creed Origins (Xbox One). My main issue with this is so far is going between Nintendo and Xbox button layouts. It leads to a few (several) moments of “Bayek why are you doing that?…. Oh…. Oh. Sorry Bayek, it’s my fault not yours.”. I am loving the look of this game. I haven’t spent too long on it and have been mainly focused on side quests and running around and guiding Senu because that is good fun.
I also started a game that I mentioned on my list of games I definitely want to get off my backlog this year. Wahey! At least I have started one that I mentioned specifically so far! That game is Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (3DS). I’m enjoying the mix of the two series in this game. It’s good fun.
I have also completed two other games which have been waiting in the wings for a while. They were both Telltale games, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, both on Xbox One. You probably know the story with these, but I am glad I have finally managed to play through them (it’s taken a while to start them…).
What have you been playing this month? Let me know in the comments.
