Nerd Girl Goals – March 2020

Play to Satisfaction

For me, saying “Play to Satisfaction” gives me explicit permission to drop a game that’s not working for me, but also to grind away for nerd points if I’m really loving something. I’m trying to make it a policy for myself that I will always play to satisfaction – no more, no less.

I still have a few outstanding game-related stuff I’d like to finish up over the next few weeks, but there’s plenty of stuff I haven’t already talked about I’d like to add onto my plate this month.

Ten Games to Tackle in 2020

Going to keep plugging along at Far Cry: Primal.

#MitsudaMarch – Community Game Along

I got ahead of myself a little and started playing Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space on my iPhone already. I was surprised how good it looked for a mobile game, and since the theme this month is a composer, I made sure to leave the sound on, and yup, the music is pretty damn great.

This is a free game, and yes, you can spend money in it, but it’s super playable without any financial investment and I have yet to see an ad. If you’re struggling to find something to play for #MitsudaMarch, here’s your no-spend option. I wasn’t entirely surprised that I didn’t have anything in my library to play this month, but I still wanted to participate.

I do get the impression that this game is basically endless, so I don’t expect to do anything that even resembles completion, and that’s okay with me.

Other Gamestuff

This month, I am expecting to lose a lot of time to things that keep me away from my computer, so that probably means I will spend twice as much time gaming as I have been lately.

Since Portal has a super-short playtime, I’m going to put it here and see if #MaybeInMarch is an actual thing I will do.

I listed XBox Game Pass as my subscription for the month, but I have no idea when (if?) I’ll actually reactivate it. Yes, there are games there I want to play – a bunch of which I’ve actually even installed – but I also don’t see the point in putting money down until I’m actually ready to play something. This will come back to bite me at some point when the subscription price goes up.

I don’t think I’m really going to plan anything more intensive this month, because I’d really like to make a dent in my ten games list, even though I have no idea which one I’m going to tackle next.
