Games I’m Playing – June

Tomb Raider Banner

This month I finished up my first year of college classes. I ended spring quarter with a 4.0 GPA and finished the year with around a 3.9 GPA. Since I’m out of school, I have a lot more free time to play, make, and write about video games. After this blog post, I will be posting another one that will talk about what I did this month outside of playing games.

Runescape – I played a lot of Runescape this month but didn’t play super efficiently. I gained a little more than 5 million experience. The reason why I played so inefficiently is because I have started streaming Runescape everyday on my Twitch Channel. Doing activities with viewers isn’t super efficient when it comes to gaining experience.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition – I finally finished Tomb Raider this month and I have to say it is a great game. I honestly don’t know why I stopped playing it for a few months. After I finished the main story I immediately started looking for everything that I missed. I usually don’t do this when I play story driven games, I usually just beat the story and then I’m done with the game. I also gave the multiplayer mode a try but didn’t really enjoy it.

Risk of Rain – This game was on sale for $2.50 on steam. I heard it was good so I decided to buy it. I have really enjoyed playing this game. I enjoyed it so much that I bought it two more times for my friends and convinced one of them to buy it for themselves. Risk of Rain is a platforming shooter with rogue-like elements and it is a ton of fun with friends. I streamed playing it a few times and now have over 13 hours of gameplay in just over a week. It’s not on sale anymore but I still highly suggest it.

SSX (2012) – I have continued to work on my goal of getting a gold medal in every single run in the game; twice. I have about ten runs left and they are extremely hard. I will probably be done with this game soon.

SSX 3 – SSX 3 is one of my favorite games of all time and it is always a ton of fun every time I play it. This month a maxed out another character and immediately started working on another. I think I have maxed out 6 or 7 characters now.

I played a few other games this month but this is what I played for the majority of the time. I highly suggest all of these games so give a few of them a try.
