Gaming Goals for 2020

Considering the past couple of months have kind of been a blur with holidays (and, admittedly, being low-key obsessed with Pokemon Sword and Shield), I’m looking forward to setting some gaming goals for 2020. There are some games we’ve missed from the past couple of years that I want to try as well as expand the kind of games I play.

2019 was a great year for gamers, but not necessarily for me. It wasn’t kind to my mental health and I went into a long gaming slump. That spark was brought back when Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword & Shield were released. There are so many games I’m looking forward to in 2020 and games I missed that I still want to give a try.

We definitely did fall off the wayside when it came to gaming for a while. To be honest, though, despite all the games that came out this year, there’s not too many that I was really eager to try, aside from Pokemon and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I’m not sure if my memories are muddled because of how quickly 2019 went by, particularly this summer and the holidays, or if there really wasn’t anything that tickled my fancy. What games did you miss out on that you still want to try?

I still want to play Cadence of Hyrule, which is the main game that sticks out in my mind. Also, Celeste. I know that’s not a 2019 release, but that game has been in the back of my mind for quite a while. A lot of games that I was truly interested in didn’t come out until the end of the year. Ring Fit Adventure, for example. I just got that for Christmas so I’m a little late with it, but I have it at least.

I completely forgot about Cadence of Hyrule. Looking up a list of 2019 game releases, I’m remembering how I wanted to try Anthem and Planet Zoo, to name a couple of games. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was up there as well, but at least I received that for Christmas, so like you with Ring Fit Adventure, at least we have it. I’m a bit disappointed that I have yet to beat the other routes for Three Houses, as well. For 2020, there are plenty of games on my radar and I’m hoping to be able to play more than what I had in 2019.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Oh, yeah. I forgot about Planet Zoo as well. That seemed like it would have been interesting. 2020 seems like it’s going to be a pretty interesting year for gaming. I feel like I already have a backlog of games for the year. Kris, do you have any special goals or anything you’d like to accomplish when it comes to gaming?

As contradictory as this may sound, I really want to relax and enjoy the games I play this year. While we try to do game reviews a couple of times each month, I don’t want to feel rushed when playing video games. Taking more time to really enjoy the games is going to be a priority so I can improve my writing when it comes to creating blog posts. Basically, take my time with games as much as I can and improve the quality of my writing. What about you, Rachel?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
I agree with that. I more or less just want to get back into the routine of playing games again. On the flip side, I’d like to find a balance between old games and the new ones coming out. I don’t want to rush the games either, but I’d like to play through a lot of older games and maybe even go back to some I’ve played and loved but haven’t been able to play again.

krismii
Playing more in general is a good goal, haha! I agree with finding a balance between old favorites and new games. It’s easy to get burned out by playing only new games since each has a learning curve and challenges. While those challenges are hopefully fun, taking breaks with familiar games is a good way to take care of yourself as well.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Exactly. I’m looking forward to Animal Crossing New Horizons in the coming months and would love to play the old games again. Also, Paper Mario. I haven’t played Paper Mario for a long time. Regardless, I think 2020 will be a great year for gaming.

Hello, 2019!

Joint_hello2019

It’s hard to believe that it’s 2019 already. It seems 2018 was too short — and, at times, way too long. We had a pretty great year, gaming-wise, and we have high hopes for both video games and our blogs for 2019!

rachmii
2018 seemed to come and go in a blink of an eye. However, we had a good year. I’m hoping 2019 is just as great filled with awesome games, fun blog posts, and lots of collaboration with friends.

krismii
More collaboration and expanding our network of fellow bloggers and gamers is one of our main goals for this year. We’ve connected with some fantastic friends this past year and we’re hoping to connect with even more in 2019, not just from this platform but from other social media platforms as well. Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitch, to be more precise. If you’re willing to share links to your own accounts on those in the comments, feel free to!

We definitely want more friends on our Switch accounts and Discord. We’d love to chat more about gaming and actually game more with friends. We’ll be doing some slightly different things on the blog this year. One of those things will be collaboration. Our aim to have a guest on the blog at least once a month. We’ve already contacted some of you to write a blog post with. We have a list of people we want to reach out to, so we’re definitely excited for that.

krismii
Don’t be afraid to reach out to us, either! We’ve updated the contact form and would love to hear from more of you as well! Speaking of expanding our network, we’re also going to be working more consistently on our Twitch streams, see what we can do to make them better and more inviting to others. As long as, you know, our Internet agrees.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Yeah, our Internet is fickle at times… speaking of updating though, we’ve updated just about all our pages on the site and even the sidebar. Our Game Reviews page now has sub-pages and is broken into the years. It’s funny to see how many reviews we do each year and how they’ve evolved overtime.

krismii
I’d like to think we’ve improved since starting this blog back in 2016. There’s no stop for improvement, though, and we’re going to continue to climb up. Here’s hoping you’ll all still be with us as we continue this journey.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Agreed! We’ll be working on a big project in 2019 and we can’t wait to share that all with you!

Crunch Time

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!

We’re nearing the end of December. A brand new year of gaming is about to begin, which means it’s crunch time for me over here.

Crunch Time | video games | gaming | gaming goals | blogging | DoublexJump.com

I played a good amount of games this year. However, I feel like there are always more games that need to be played.

There were a lot of games I wish I had played this year and, looking on the Nintendo eShop on the Switch and my 3DS, I’ve realized there are a lot of games I’ve had on my list for quite a while.

I didn’t do a solo game review for this month. I wasn’t entirely sure what to play and I kind of ran out of time to play anything new.

December has always been a “crunch time” kind of month for me. I catch up on any deadlines I missed and use the month as prep for the next year. With that said, I’m going through all my video games in the next week.

I’m going to make a list of games I have and want and check off ones I’ve played. Hopefully, in 2019, I can whittle down my gaming list and play some that I’ve had for years and never played or beat. As well as playing new 2019 games, of course.
