I’ve been making these every year since about oh, not that long ago, and I’ve managed to actually stick with a couple of them. Hee. This year I’m trying to be far more realistic with my goals, especially since game developers seem to be hell bent on releasing fabulous games every two months. I mean, it’s great and all, but I could really use like three or four months to catch up on my backlog that goes back to the PS2 and GameCube.
1. Set aside time at night to play handheld games. This includes my iPhone games (since I write about them for the Examiner) as well. My plan is to find a way to play both consoles and handhelds at the same time. I haven’t been able to do that really well as of yet, but with Gabe’s new school schedule starting next week, I’m oh so hopeful. My secondary goals are to possibly finish Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Final Fantasy VII. Maybe start and finish Final Fantasy VIII. Ah, but all this is AFTER I finish Spirit Tracks, which I did order this week along with the guide. (So stay tuned, Mr. Stratton!)
2. Finish reviewing Dragon Age: Origins and Uncharted 2 before beginning a new game. If this means Bayonetta gets pushed back until after Final Fantasy XIII, then so be it.
3. Really try to finish what I start. I started and stopped far too many games this year. Some I plan on finishing, such as Final Fantasy x, Uncharted 2 and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, but I really need to stop that nasty habit and learn to either finish what I start or quit it entirely.
And I think that’s all I’m going to hold myself to for now. There’s no law that says I can’t add additional resolutions along the way.
Happy New Year everyone! This past year has been so much fun, and I hope that this next year is just as fun.
