Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance is done. Utterly fantastic game!

I'm going to take a slight break for a bit to cleanse my palette after such a long and involving game. However, I plan to tackle Phantasy Star III sometime this summer!

I'm thinking about starting a new PSN account, effectively eliminating the backlog on my current one, and trying to complete and possibly even platinum everything I play on this new one going forward

Tired of staring at an endless list of incomplete games on my account, and sometimes in life it's fun to do a reset for certain things and start over from scratch. Gets rid of old baggage so you can start fresh

21. Looney Tunes Collector: Martian Alert! (GBC)
22. Looney Tunes Collector: Martian Revenge! (GBC)
23. Sega Mega Drive Classics (Switch) - 33/51


Most of this month I was busy getting married and going on my honeymoon, so slow progress. However, I have started up a few games since I got back - I played through Klonoa on Wii (which was excellent) and Looney Tunes Martian Alert on GBC (which was a lot better than you might expect) and I'm about halfway through Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch and Mole Mania. The latter is pretty tough though! Hopefully in June I'll finish both and start on a few other games, but the Summer Challenge and my Together Retro might slow that down!


2. Beat every game I received as gifts in 2017 and haven't yet beaten.

As of now, this list is as follows:
1. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch)
2. The Last Guardian (PS4)
3. Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)


No progress on this one yet!

3. Replay some games I've purchased in physical format after originally playing digitally, if I haven't played them since buying them.

Not got to any of these yet



Buying games:

1. Focus gaming purchases on my big name wants list, rather than buying stuff just because it's cheap

Sort of on track here.

2. Buy less games than I beat in 2019.

Maybe about breaking even


Mods & upgrades:

1. Get my PC Engine Duo R modded for RGB output

Nope

2. Learn some electronics & soldering so I can start attempting my own mods.

I bought a book on electronics, but I've yet to find time to actually start on this...

Phantasy Star III is now beaten!

I think I will be tackling over the July 4th weekend. That will be my longest summer vacation of the year because of all the moving craziness going on at the moment.

A little progress here, but momentum has stalled during the summer challenge. After August, it'll be time to get back into the Mega Drive Classics collection!

Not really been buying any big wants to be honest, so maybe not succeeding here right now.

2. Buy less games than I beat in 2019.

Maybe about breaking even still


Mods & upgrades:

1. Get my PC Engine Duo R modded for RGB output

Nope

2. Learn some electronics & soldering so I can start attempting my own mods.
