So, I said I’d do the follow up post to the #MaybeInMarch Mission sometime in April… I wasn’t planning on it being this late in April, but eh, here we go! Ahem.
As the title of this blog post implies, I did not beat Fallout 4 in March (unsurprisingly) BUT I was super happy to see a few bloggers out there contribute to the event. Here are the participant posts that caught my limited attention. If you contributed something and I didn’t catch it, definitely let me know. I’ll remedy that and include a link to your content as well.
My partner in crime for the event, Kim of Later Levels, did a Twitch stream (videos Part 1 and Part 2) and a blog post about her mission to beat Limbo.
And now I shall babble in detail about what I did actually do in Fallout 4 during March. I’m happy to say I’ve platinumed the game last weekend (#AlwaysApril FTW). Yes. My posting timeline is all over the place these days…
Also: HUGE FREAKING SPOILER WARNING for anyone who hasn’t beaten Fallout 4 yet and wants to. You have been warned.
Welcome to my monthly progress post that happens on the 13th, which marks the start of a new fiscal month here on Livid Lightning. Get it? XIII is my favourite number… because I like Final Fantasy XIII a lot? Jeez… tough crowd.
Winter…. I’m begging you… PLEASE GO AWAY! I’m so tired of snowbanks, freezing weather, my car getting stuck, and every part of my body hurts from shoveling and falling on icy sidewalks.
To top it all off, my area of the world likes to do this Daylight Saving Time crap where we set the clocks ahead an hour last weekend. Not only does that mess with my internal clock, it also means I get to walk to work in the dark-cold again. Yay… Seriously. We aren’t all farmers who need max daylight hours these days… or whatever the hell the reason for originally starting this was. Some archaic traditions need to die, and changing the clocks is one of them.
Spring and actual longer days will come soon. But yeah, here’s what I’ve been up to this fiscal month… so tired.
Well, I suppose I should take a stab at #MaybeInMarch too! The game that’s been on my backlog list the longest (as per the #LoveYourBacklog event) is Final Fantasy VIII. As Aether so wisely helped me realize via cool comment on that post, I got far enough in that game to probably not worry about it so much (up to the 2nd last boss is good, right?). If there’s ever a remake, I’ll make it a priority to conquer VIII.
So then, there’s this other game that’s always in the back of my mind… screaming at me to finish it… even though I haven’t touched it in over two years. That game, my friends, is Fallout 4. I recently re-posted my first impressions of the game and the TL;DR problem is that I just couldn’t for the life of me concentrate on it long enough to finish it. Not sure why since I do really enjoy the game… it’s a weird gamer state of mind, I guess.
The time for me to finish (or give up on) Fallout 4 is NOW, and I don’t feel like starting a brand new game (since I did a ton of side questing and whatnot). Thankfully, past me babbled about Fallout 4 a lot in a failed weekly progress post series I did on my old website. In an effort to trigger my memory about what I’ve done in this game thus far, I’ve pulled together all those status updates (and added some screenshots I found on my PS4) to form this post. Enjoy!
First off, a huge thank you to everyone who partook in February’s #LoveYourBacklog week! Kim and I were pleasantly shocked by all the cool entries that were posted. You guys rock!
And now it’s time for part two: dedicating an entire month to getting through that one unplayed game that’s been taunting you the most. Whether it’s been the game that’s been on your backlog list the longest from the #LoveYourBacklog event, or one that you’ve been struggling to just play for some reason or another, this is the month it seriously might happen.
#MaybeInMarch 2019 you’ll get that game done, or maybe finally give up on it completely, thus freeing you from its constant cries to complete it.
