Another January Update

Oh no, am I doing another one of these filler posts? Sadly, I am, but with reason. In my last January update, I mentioned I was planning on reviewing some big games during the month (namely God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate), and that I plan on doing (at least) one top 5 list and one top 10 list per month. Obviously, I’m running out of time in January to get all that done. There’s maybe time to squeeze in another big review before January ends, but not all of these things. So I’m here to apologize. I should still be able to get to all of these soon, however. But sorry I couldn’t get it all done when I planned.

As for the top 5/top 10 lists, I do plan to start doing those on a monthly basis, and it does suck that I couldn’t start on the first month of a new year. But, as always, better late than never, I suppose. I will say I am working on my list of Top 10 Nintendo Systems as we speak (err…as I write), which I planned to have up for a couple of weeks, but have backpedaled on the ordering of said list numerous times, thus postponing it (I know the top 4 for sure, but I keep flip-flopping the others).

So yeah, sincerest apologies for more filler, but I’d hate to have mentioned doing those reviews/lists this month, not do them, and then say nothing of it. So I hope you look forward to them. On the plus side, this filler post brings me closer to my 800th blog milestone, and these delayed posts should probably push me to said milestone. Then it’s off to my 2018 video game awards, and beyond. But I’ll keep that “beyond” a secret for now.

Thanks for putting up with me.

  1. That’s fine. Stuff gets in the way. It happens. I myself had to delay my Super Mario Sunshine review because Oscar season popped up and I discovered I had only reviewed two of the nominees and hadn’t seen three of them – cue me having to scramble around and get all these reviews done. Also, my Pokemon Gold and Silver review ended up being quite long, so I decided to follow it up with a short review (it’s of Jumper, which is one of Matt Thorson’s earliest games). On top of that, I’m about to complete Spider-Man, so you can expect me to review that in February as well.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what ends up on your top ten lists!

    1. Surely Super Mario Sunshine is the Mario game that gets your 10! πŸ˜›

      I should catch up on more of the Oscar nominees. Roma is on Netflix, so maybe I’ll check it out next. I liked Black Panther, but I’m still stumped as to why it’s the first super hero film to get a Best Picture mention. Did The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, The Incredibles and others just not happen in the eyes of the Academy? Still, once again, I’m happy to see a super hero film actually get the mention, but it comes off more as something long overdue, as opposed to a groundbreaking achievement.

      I want to revisit Pokemon Gold and Silver myself at some point. To this day, that was the Pokemon game I was most hyped for and (at the time) enjoyed most.

      Thanks! I hope I can start cranking out those lists soon enough.

  2. In the end, blogging is a fun hobby that you get to when you can get to it. No need to apologize for that! I’ve been behind on book reviews for about two years now and have started to add gaming posts, so there’s really no hope for me…

    I’ll look forward to those top 5/10 posts!

    1. Thanks! It is a fun hobby (though I am starting to make some money on it, and I would definitely like to grow this site to a steady source of income one day…if possible). I just feel bad when I plan something and it doesn’t pan out.

      Thanks! I’ll try to make my lists worth the wait.
