Ah the holiday season. This is that glorious time that we see heaps of games dropping, massive Steam sales (I’m sorry bank account), and countless hours sunk into completing those random games on our stacks of shame. Of course this is only complicated by all the holiday parties and potlucks that force us to take naps in the middle of the day. It’s a glorious time, yet stressful as well.
I figured with much of us in the U.S. taking time on Thursday and Friday to gorge ourselves on food and gaming, I’d share some of what I’m most looking forward to during this crazy season. I mean let’s face it, between now and December 31, it’s not like we will really be focusing on work. Sure, we might pretend to work, but really we are all just slacking off and trying to make it to the next paid holiday day off. At least, that is what I always did!
Right after the Thanksgiving break, I plan to pick up Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Keri speaks so highly of it, and I have always enjoyed the series. I’m upset at myself that I haven’t snagged this title yet. I also plan to try and beat Pokémon Alpha Sapphire over Thanksgiving. I gotta admit, a remake of the original Pokémon that got me hooked is definitely pulling at my heart strings. Let’s not forget that Smash Bros. WiiU also came out, and I have a lot of work to put in before I feel comfortable getting my butt handed to me online. Finally, I have countless hours to sink into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I mean, my white mage isn’t going to level himself!
I have so much to do, and I so look forward to tackling it all. That brings me to you. What are you most looking forward to playing over the holiday rush? Do you plan to tackle that immense stack of shame, or will you dive into some new games. I know this, plenty of egg nog and pumpkin pie will be consumed while I tackle this massive list of gaming happiness!
