Another quarter of the year down, time for a midway reckoning on the year’s goals.

I’m so glad 2020 is over halfway done. What an awful year this has been.

Anyways —

1) Complete 20 games
I picked up the pace this quarter and am back on track. 12/20 done.
2) Use my Vita more and complete at least 4 games.
I played some Vita last month but then the PS4 beckoned too strongly and so I’ve not been playing it lately. I don’t think I I’ll hit this one.
3) Play at least one AAA game at launch.
Got a launch copy of Ghost of Tsushima and have been playing it since the first week. I’ve been loving it so far and enjoy being able to participate in the buzz of a new game.
4) Play a Sports game, a FPS, a Soulsborne, and a Racing game.
NBA2K, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Jedi: Fallen Order, and Horizon Chase Turbo. 4 for 4 on this one. There’s a good chance I’ll squeeze in another FPS and maybe another Soulsborne before the end, but I’m giving myself credit already for what I’ve already done.
5) Be better about cleaning my PS4. Once a quarter.
Last month I did a thorough cleaning, with the full opening up and cleaning the fan. It wasn’t as dirty as I thought it might be, so once a quarter is way too often for this to be necessary for me. Maybe 1-2 times a year. I’ll give myself a partial credit credit here.

Non-gaming goal:
Exercise ...Still not exercising anything except my thumbs.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Purchase no more than seven new full-price retail titles over the course of the year.

I think I can still stick to this.

Purchase no more than eight older/indie releases over the course of the year.

Haha. No.

Complete 20 games from my backlog over the course of the year. This only counts games I purchased before January 01, 2020.

Probably won't be doing this. My focus has been on knocking out new games I've bought. And I've bought way more than I expected to.

Fully complete Horizon: Zero Dawn's Frozen Wilds DLC and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's two DLC expansions.

HZD is, of course, done. Done with TW3 and Hearts of Stone. Just need to complete Blood and Wine.

Complete a second playthrough of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

No closer to doing this.

Complete second playthrough of Resident Evil 2 (Claire route) and the unlockable Hunk and Tofu modes.

Ditto.

Complete the Post-Game content for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition, including all side-quests and all extra 2D mode content via Tickington.

Ditto.

Complete at least half of the games you buy in 2020.

It'll be way more than half. If nothing else, I've not been allowing new games to collect dust in a backlog.

  • Reduce my backlog: Just About On Track
    There's slightly fewer games in my backlog than the start of the year. Sales have been making this tricky though. I have completed some long games, so I'm probably doing better than what the numbers indicate.
  • Play a Yakuza game: No Progress So Far
    Haven't played any of them yet, but Yakuza 0 is right at the top of my list of what to play next.
  • Play Red Dead Redemption 2: Nearly Done
    Been playing it, and I'm right at the end now. So this goal will very soon be complete.
  • Play a Persona game: Completed
    That's technically done, as I've finished Persona 5 Dancing earlier this year. However, I've been wanting to play the original Persona 1, and will be disappointed if I don't get that played this year.
  • Give my PS Vita some more love: Halfway There
    I did complete Sly 2, so that's one game. Completing one more game (probably Persona 1), and this goal will technically be complete, even if only 2 games is still a bit disappointing.

So overall, the goals are still achievable for me, though I'm slightly behind where I ought to be right now. As long as I start playing Yakuza 0 and Persona 1 before too long, and don't go wild buying games, then it'll all be good.

@crimsontadpoles You going for the original PS1 Persona or the PSP remaster?

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@crimsontadpoles I honestly thought the original was available on Vita but a quick check proved me wrong. The original’s translation is atrocious anyway, the remake is a lot better and actually includes an entire arc that was cut from the PS1 translation. A lot of people prefer the original’s soundtrack but I prefer the PSP one because it goes for the same J-Pop feel as the later games. If I wanted to play a SMT game then I’d be playing one!

@crimsontadpoles The PSP remake of Persona 1 is literally the only way to properly play the English release. The OST is worse imo as it doesn't fit the game's tone at all, but the translation is significantly better and it isn't missing the half of the content that was cut from the original Revelations Persona release on PS1

Same goes with Persona 2 Innocent Sin. PSP version is best version

Update!

  • Get five platinum trophies. Done! I've actually got seven platinums so far this year so am pretty pleased to have already achieved this goal and then some.
  • Play Trails of Cold Steel. It's in my Vita and ready to play after a few smaller titles. This is doable!
  • Get up to date with the Tales series. Finished Tales of Hearts R but haven't got much further. With Arise delayed into next year this isn't the priority it was when I originally made this list.
  • Play and complete Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Not yet started. Shall do soon!
  • Play Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid V. I've finished Peace Walker, so am halfway to achieving this one! I actually doubt I will play MGS V this year, but do aim to play Revengeance and perhaps Ground Zeroes before the year is out.

In all I haven't done too badly so far. With almost five months left I have a reasonable shot at achieving a few more goals.

Oh dear, I’ve not done well. I was supposed to play Horizon and Judgment and I’ve finished neither. I at least beat DmC4 but to be fair, I’ve played and finished loads of other games that I normally would have dropped.

@Anti-Matter Yeah, as somebody who frequently goes looking for copies of old games, I can appreciate how finding all of those Ratchet & Clank games would've been pretty lucky. Nicely done!

@RogerRoger
These are All my Ratchet & Clank games i took picture just now.
Untitled
I have the finished the storyline for Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time, R&C 2 Trilogy, R&C 3 Trilogy, Into the Nexus and PS4 version.
All 4 One was very boring.
QForce was too hard for Tower Defense style.
R&C 1 Trilogy was too primitive.
I rarely touched Secret Agent Clank as PSP version have no Right analog button that was very important to change the camera angle. I will get the PS2 version as optional.

@Anti-Matter Cool collection!

Yeah, some of those bigger PSP releases that got PS2 ports are usually worth tracking down. Don't get me wrong, I love my PSP but there's no denying things like Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier and the two Syphon Filter games run much better, and are easier to control, on PS2.
