Happy New Year’s Eve Players! We have 1 day left in 2018 and 2 days left in the Christmas Collaboration event hosted by Kim over at Later Levels! I have no idea where the year has gone, but it has been a great rollercoaster of a time and I appreciate everyone who has followed us throughout the year! To show our appreciation, we will be hosting a mystery box giveaway on the blog next month to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. More on that will come on Tuesday when we go over our recap for the year and our goals for 2018. Now the rules are simple, answer the designated questions on the days assigned and have fun!

Today’s Topic:

Midnight rolls around and it’s time to pick a New Year gaming resolution to see you through the next 12 months. What’s your choice for 2018?


I have increased my amount of gaming this year, but I have to admit there are some goals that I have been wanting to fulfill.

  1. Buy A Nintendo Switch– I have been wanting a switch all year but have not purchased one as of yet. This is a goal that I have for 2018
  2. Streaming & YouTube – My friends are a very eclectic bunch and we run into the most hilarious situations when we play together. I want to share my love for gaming and our hilarious situations with the world. To do this, I need to purchase a camera and a capture card to have the best quality.
  3. Buy More Games – I haven’t bought as many games as I had in previous years of my life. I want to pre-order and purchase at least 5 games in 2018. One game that I am looking forward to is Red Dead Redemption 2 (please release soon lol) as it was announced 2 years ago, yet we are still waiting for the game to fully release. Hopefully this means that Rockstar is enhancing the game and it will launch without a glitch!
  4. Find More Time for Video Games – My last gaming goal of 2018 is to find more time to enjoy what I love to do so much. Right now my schedule with work and life in general gets in the way of me having ample time to play, but I’m starting to find gaps in my schedule that lets me enjoy the escape of video games. I aim to continue this process throughout the New Year!

  1. Happy New Year, Luna! Gaming can be difficult when adult responsibilities get in the way – I hope 2018 is good to you and brings you a few extra spare hours. 😉

    1. Happy New Year Kim! Thank you for hosting the Christmas Collaboration! I wish you all of the happiness and success that 2018 can bring! Game on!

  2. This is very similar to my list, lol. My sister and I are hoping to start streaming and/or a YouTube channel this year as well. Good luck to you!

  3. Good luck with streaming/YouTube and I hope you can get a Switch this year. Lots of luck for finding time for everything. Being an adult can be a pain but we all try. Hope this year is a good one for you.

  4. Finding more time to play video games is definitely something I’m going to try to do this year, too. 🙂 I miss playing games. It seems there’s never enough time to work on ALL the things I want to do. I’m going to try though. Maybe on the weekends when my boyfriend and I both have time off.
    Best of luck to you with all your gaming resolutions! <3

    1. Thanks! Yea it’s a struggle but I’m going to try and make some sort of schedule and then fit in gaming during any downtime I have. Hopefully your 2018 year will be filled with plenty of video games, comics, books and fun!

  5. Finding time to game is soooo hard for me because of school. I hope you’re able to follow through with all these resolutions!

  6. A personal resolution for me has been to play more indie games in particular. For a while, I felt like I was hunting down the big, time sink AAA titles and missing out on cool gems I could finish more quickly with a richer experience. Night in the Woods, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Snake Pass ended up among my Top Games of 2017, I loved them so much.

    2018, however, if the year of me trying out more fighting games. This is an entire genre I had ignored up until the end of 2017, and there is so much to appreciate with that style.

    1. Great resolution! I have to admit that before starting the blog I would stick to AAA Titles. My friend Kim over at Later Levels wrote a post early last year about the different types of gamers and it resonated with me. I stuck to what I liked and didn’t try many new genre’s or titles. Now I give all games the time of day unless it’s really something I dislike and I have grown as a gamer as a result! Good luck on your resolution and stop by any time!
