As we approach the one year anniversary of this blog, I have failed to review many of the games I had hoped to this year. Due to time constraints, juggling a full-time job while going to college full-time, I simply could not post as regularly as I would have liked and even found that picking up a controller was impossible at times. Ideally I would have crushed many of the games in my backlog, slowly chipping away at the titles I hoped to feature on this blog. Realistically this was not an achievable goal. I literally have over 200 games in my backlog, and I had hoped to give each one a little bit of my time to publish a review consisting of my thoughts and opinions. And that number only consists of my Xbox library, which has so far been exclusively reviewed. I picked up a New 2DS earlier last year for the sole purpose of reviewing Nintendo exclusives, but I never got around to it, and for that I am gravely disappointed. My hope going forward is to be more consistent with my blog posts although I am not certain if this is possible.
While complaining about the lack of time I have to review the games I already own, I will be a little hypocritical in my next announcement. Yes, I have over 200 games to review. No I will not be able to cover all of them. This daunting task grows ever more so, as I am expanding my game library yet again. It is with great pleasure that I announce I will be adding Nintendo Switch games to my library. That may literally double the reviews I hope to write, while diminishing the time I actually have to write them. I am excited to get my hands on some of Nintendo’s greatest first-party releases and will do my best to write as much as my time allows. Although the mountain before me seems that much taller, I am overjoyed to be able to feature more of the games I love on this blog. I knew I would be investing in more Nintendo hardware, I just didn’t know when, and now seems as good a time as any (especially with Animal Crossing on the horizon).
I would love for all of you to join me on this new adventure, and here’s to hoping none of my consoles become covered in dust as my work, school, and social life persists. I would like to thank everyone so much for taking the time to read some of my posts. I really appreciate the support, no matter how little. Thank you all!
