The Nintendo Resolution: My Year in Video Games, 2016


Mii

In the 2016 intro/hub page for the Nintendo Resolution, I stated pretty emphatically that there was no way I could match the 36 video games I beat in 2015.  Well, I not only matched that number, but I fucking blew it out of the water – in the calendar year of 2016, I beat 48 goddamn games.

The Nintendo Resolution: My Year in Video Games, 2015


Mii

When I started “The Nintendo Resolution” about a year ago, my stated goal was to clear out my video game backlog – the games that I’d purchased, started playing, and then completely abandoned for one reason or another.

Mission accomplished!  Of the 36 games I beat this year (see the original hub page for the full list, as well as links to my write-ups on each one), 12 were games that had been on my backlog for some amount of time.  And although you can see a clear point where I refocused my attention to newly-released games, I think playing them with this “resolution” in mind kept me determined to see them through to the end.  On any other year, many of those games would have just become fresh new additions to the backlog (especially goddamned Earthbound Beginnings).

My Year in Movies, 2014


I am posting this much later than usual this year, so my apologies for that.  I usually start writing these things around late September or October, but the last few months of 2014 were extremely shitty and hectic for me, so I didn’t get a chance to begin this until mid-January!  Hopefully you pieces of shit appreciate it!

The Nintendo Resolution


Mii

Anybody who knows me knows that I play a LOT of video games, particularly games on Nintendo consoles and handhelds.  What people might not realize is that I also don’t play a lot of video games.  I buy the games, I try the games out, and then something distracts me (usually the next game I want to buy), and I never finish the games.   This has led to a huge backlog of games on my “to be finished” list, and since I primarily purchase games digitally, they are all there staring at me every time I boot up my Wii U or 3DS.

My Year in Movies, 2013


Hey, remember when I used to actually write things for this blog?  Things about comic books and video games and all sorts of fun stuff?  Or hey, how about when I started slacking off, but the awesome Jenny Incompetence kept the blog going in spite of my laziness?  Perhaps 2014 will be the year where I get this shit rolling again, but in 2013 I was busy watching way, way too many movies.

Let’s run the numbers!  In 2010, I watched 152 movies.  In 2011: 198 movies.  In 2012: 300 movies.  All of those are really disturbingly high numbers, but in 2013 I upped the ante to a crazy degree, clocking in at a disgusting total of 368 fucking movies!!  For those of you unwilling or unable to do the math, that is an average of about 1.008 movies a day.  God damn it, I am so ashamed.  Read on for the full report on every movie I watched.  For your convenience, I’ve included a link to the movies which are available to stream on Netflix – sorry I didn’t do the same for Hulu or Amazon or any other services, but I don’t have them, so fuck it.  Anyway, here we go:
