Reaching new heights

Not as drastic as the title may sound. I have however beaten 14 games under 6 months, a new record for me. My previous best for a full year is 19 games. So I am set up well to beat that at least.

One of the reasons is probably because I haven’t revisited any games that I’ve played before. I’m on my way with Pokemon Black as well, so that’ll probably game 15.

Pokemon Black is a weird one. I can see why I was so confused when jumping into the Pokemon mainline games again back in 2015 with Pokemon Y (Gen 6) when I was used how Pokemon games was in Gen 2-3. A lot of the big changes were made in Black / White (Gen 5). Merging of the Pokémon Center and Poké Mart, a more cinematic emphasis, different “camera” angles during fights, stuff that has been a staple since. The mix of 3D effects on 2D sprites is something I probably an idea I have to warm up to. It’s not a favorite change so far.

Pokémon Pokémon Pokemon

I’m nearing the end in Pokémon Diamond. Almost ready to face the Elite Four. This would make it the fourth Pokémon game this year. Three mainline games and one spin-off.

I’m tempted to continue with Pokémon Black 1 after Diamond, but I have some other games coming up aswell, like Biomutant, and I should also continue Fenyx.

My goal this year is to beat the rest of the mainline Pokémon games I haven’t beaten yet and also all Halo games in the Master Chief Collection, I have Reach left.
