Gaming in March.

It seeems strange and little scary that we are a quarter of the way through 2020 already. I swear, the older I get the faster time seems to fly by! Despite the month racing by, I did manage to get quite a bit of gaming done, so let’s take alook at the games I played in March…

Let’s start this post with a game that I’ve finally, a year on from when I started it, finished. My time with Octopath Traveler was a bit of a rollercoaster- there were moments I absolutely loved the game and there times when the grinding and slow pace really got to me. Still, I’m glad I finished all eight of the travellers’ tales and got to see how they connected in the end. I will say that Octopath Traveler is definitely a game JRPG fans should play but if you’re new to genre, perhaps start with something from the Final Fantasy series.

I was on a bit of a roll in March, as I not only finished Octopath Traveler but also started and finsihed Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap! I’ve not played any of the Wonder Boy games before, but I definitely feel in love with this Switch version. I’m generally not great ta platformers but I only had one section with Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap and that was in the Underground area. Still, I enjoyed playing the game and managed to finish it in less than eight hours!

The game I am currentlyplaying on my Switch is Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl- Gold. This is a charming dungeon crawling game developed and published by Level-5, the guys behind the Professor Layton series and Ni No Kuni. Each dungeon in the game is randomly generated and lasts around fifteen to twenty minutes to complete, making it a great game to pick when you have a few minutes to kill. I’ve put around ten hours into the game and am loving every minute of it, I can definietly see myself replaying this once I’ve completed the main story.

Moving on to the PC games, I’ve recently picked up The Sims 4, thanks to my sister. I understand that some of the fans of the series have some issues with the latest entry to the franchise but as a casual player, I’m enjoying my experience so far. I’ve only played it for a couple of hours, so I haven’t experienced all The Sims 4 has to offer, but I will update you guys next month with my opinion.

I don’t think my tortoise knows that’s for his food…

A another PC game I picked up recently but have put quite a few hours into is Planet Zoo. Like Planet Coaster was the spiritual successor to Rollercoaster Tycoon, the same can be said that Planet Zoo is the spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon. So far, I think Planet Zoo has the potential to be best zoo management game out there and looking at what the developers have done to improve the game since launch definitely supports that. COnsidering I’ve played 51 hours of Planet Coaster, I anticpate that you guys will see Planet Zoo mentioned alot in these posst in the soming months!

Finally, I recently started playing two games that I bought a while ago- Plague Inc: Evolved and House Flipper. I’ll admit that I started to play Plague Inc: Evolvedafter seeing it appear in the news. And House Flipper, I’ve found strangely relaxing and a great way for me to switch off from what is currently going on in the world.

So, that was my gaming in March. I suspect I will be spending a lot more time playing video games, considering the social distancing going in the UK. I’m lookimg to play some more of Snack World, Planet Zoo and House Flipper in April, as well as picking Skyrim back to finsih its DLC.

What have you guys been playing? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll talk to you soon!

  1. Sounds like a good time! I’d like to try out Monster Boy at some point. I’m a sucker for 2D platformers!

    As for myself, I’ve been throwing way too many hours into Animal Crossing NH. 😛 I also started Morrowind and hope to actually have a sturdy file this go round! So far, so good!

    1. If you love 2D platformers, I definitely think you should give Monster Boy a try.
      How is the new Animal Crossing? I want to pick it up but I’m trying to stick to this rule that I don’t buy a Switch game until I finish the Switch game I’m playing, so it could be a little while before I pick it up.
      Morrowind is one of those games I want to complete, but I struggle to sit down and play it. I hope your game goes well for you!

      1. I’ll have to get MB sometime then! As for Animal Crossing, it has sucked me in bad! I’ve already put a shameful number of hours in and I’m nowhere close to stopping! Morrowind has been a nice reprieve the last couple days 🙂 Thanks! I hope yours do as well!

  2. In March I spent a lot of time in City of Heroes, which isn’t exactly surprising. Spent a lot of time on the Beta Center checking out out the changes to Dark Melee and the new Electrical Affinity powerset. (I actually participate quite a bit in the open Beta process.)

    Other than that, mostly just steadily playing and leveling a variety of characters. I have about five mains, and I rotate between them as the spirit moves me.

    Keep thinking about starting a side blog dedicated to me City of Heroes playing, but I need another project like I need another hole in my head.
