Welcome to the new year! It’s still nice and shiny for a while longer with that new year smell. There is a lot of promise and potential ahead of us. There are some huge games dropping in just the first half of 2020. The latter half of the year should be just as explosive with the beginning of a new console generation. Think how fast 2019 came and went, and you’ll realize it will be here sooner than you think.
Whether you make some resolutions or skip them altogether, 2020 is going to be a huge year for gaming. Save your pennies, work on those backlogs, and be sure to come back here to see what we have planned. Until then, this is how we’ll be spending our last weekend before the gaming world gears start turning again.
The backlog quest had begun in earnest as I’m about halfway through Knack 2 and my Road to the Show in MLB 19 sees a younger Kyle Durant making a name for himself in AA baseball. One should be completed and make room for another in my current 2 game system.
With imminent deadlines, I can’t justify beginning my backlog although I do plan to treat myself to an evening of mischief and honking with Untitled Goose Game! The second half of January will be much more fruitful for games so hopefully, my future plays will be more interesting.
To help with my never-ending backlog I finally took the plunge and purchased an external 2TB hard drive to try and eliminate having to constantly download and reinstall games. So yeah, you guessed it I’m currently replaying games I finished ages ago and the backlog still remains untouched. First up I’m revisiting Los Santos in GTA V followed by some Eastern gangster shenanigans in Yakuza 0.
DID YOU KNOW THE WITCHER WAS A GAME BEFORE IT WAS A NETFLIX SHOW? It seems that saucy minx Yennifer is missing so I better go find her. I’ll let everybody know if it’s any good.
If you look at the consecutive weeks, I’m still playing DS but foolishly bought a dozen new Switch games while half cut. It’ll be backlogs for me, plus the new Nintendo games.
More reviews of course, but I have started a little of Judgment. I’m sticking with the Japanese audio, because that feels more normal to me with this game. I still have to make a decision on a few games in the Holiday Sale before it ends, so maybe I’ll pick up a couple of other games to keep my other unplayed games company.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
