Happy Monday! Another week down, another week on the horizon. Here’s what we’re playing this beautiful week in August:
Still making good progress through P4 Golden (get ready for a couple weeks of that). Downloaded and chugging along through SM64 and OoT on the Wii U VC. Recently beat Firewatch for the first time, likely try a couple more play-throughs.
Lastly, revisiting a mystery PS4 game for some upcoming articles.
After 100+ hours of adventure, finally finished Breath of the Wild last week. Glad it’s over, but excited to jump back in for Master Mode and Ballad of the Champions later this year. Over the weekend, also beat a little gem I highly recommend: What Remains of Edith Finch.
Up this week? Pyre, Splatoon 2, and maybe even some Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Game acquisitions: 0
Games beaten: 2
Net backlog: -2
I finished writing my opinion piece of Man of Steel, which was a truly harrowing experience. Just started playing through Fire Emblem: Binding Blade, or FE6, in preparation for an upcoming article. OG Fire Emblem is godlike. Fates is trash.
Continuing my long-lasting chronological rewatch of Survivor. Currently about halfway through Season 21, Nicaragua, which is only a little more than halfway through the entire series up to this point. Yes, it is still airing.
Still 2/9 in Mythic ToS Progression and working on completing La Mulana. Decided to drop Persona 5: NG+ to complete other games on the back log including Horizon: Zero Dawn. Like Kei I decided to replay through Fire Emblem: Binding Blade as well as both Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade and Sacred Stones while I wait for the release of Starcraft: Remastered, releasing August 14.
