Currently with this month, not a lot of releases that I am looking forward to. But with E3 coming up later this month, I am eagerly awaiting what will be announced during that for the year to come. One game I am looking forward to is being released on June 30th, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This game features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. While I didn’t play Crash Bandicoot as a kid, I am looking forward to this release so I can experience those games now.
Two movies releasing on June 2nd, Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Looking forward to the next installment in the DC Universe, when Wonder Woman comes out. Having ran the Captain Underpants books as a kid, I am curious on how the movie will turn out. Later in the month on the 21st comes the release of Transformers: The Last Knight. Having seen the rest of the movies, I am looking forward to watching this one. At the end of the month, brings the release of Despicable Me 3. Being a fan of the minions, I can’t wait for this release.
Three releases I am looking forward to this month. The first release coming from All Time Low on June 2nd, entitled Last Young Renegade. One week later, comes the release of Wolves by Rise Against. Near the end of the month on the 23rd comes the release of Evolve by Imagine Dragons.
Check out my thoughts on last month.
May is shaping up to be a slower month than the previous months.
This month doesn’t have any appealing releases for me in regards to video games. Just more hype building for E3 in June.
After seeing the first movie, I am looking forward to watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which released on May 5th.
Later in the month on May 26th, releases 2 movies which I am intrigued by, they are Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch.
4 years after their last album, I am looking forward to Paramore’s next album entitled After Laughter, releasing on the 2nd of May.
March was a great month in terms of releases. April isn’t looking to bad either.
After a strong release in March of the Nintendo Switch, the Switch has 2 games I am looking forward to in April.
Releasing on the 25th and 28th are Puyo Puyo Tetris and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Mario Kart 8 is one of the main reasons I had originally bought my WiiU, the fact that it is getting updated is going to be great. Puyo Puyo Tetris seems like a great party game and brings back memories of playing Tetris with friends.
On April 18, The Disney Afternoon Collection is being released. This will bring back memories of gaming from my youth.
April brings the release of 3 movies I am looking forward to see.
7 – Gifted
14 – The Fate of the Furious
28 – The Circle
On April 21st, 2 albums are being released that I am excited to listen to. 21 8 by Incubus and Love and War by Brad Paisley.
Another month of updates is coming up for Runescape, so lets take a look what this month has to offer.
Another high level slayer monster. In theory this look like a good update, but I won’t be able to slay these monsters for a while. With the eventual release of 120 slayer, it is great they are getting starting on releasing monsters for the higher levels to fill in the content gap.
Sunday April 9th brings the release of the RuneScape Documentary: 15 Years of Adventure. I am looking forward to this premiere. I more than likely won’t be watching it live at 17:30 game time but I will be watching it and reviewing it later on. Having played RuneScape for over 10 year, I am curious to see how this documentary is displayed.
They will be releasing the first portion of this update. Currently, I don’t use the current achievement system too much, but looking at the new design and features I will definitely be trying this out when it is released. I often find myself trying to figure out what to train so the recommended activities features is something that I will be trying out.
Tonight is one of the biggest nights in sports entertainment. It is WrestleMania 33. Tonight I will be watching it on the WWE Network.
I looking forward to Seth Rollins vs. Triple H and Goldberg (c) vs. Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman).
The lineup looks great again this year.
An article I read online recently stuck out to me with the author, David Wehle’s process to completing his game.
Whether it’s just answering an email or doing a small color change on a texture, I always try to do something on my project everyday…… Usually I get pumped about what I’ve done, and suddenly I’m motivated to work on the harder stuff.
No matter what, he found something to work on and accomplish each day. Doing this along with limiting my scope, it will be much easier to release the side projects and get feedback. In the end I will feel more accomplished because something was actually released and not just a permanent work in progress.
Over the course of working on my hobby projects I have always run into roadblocks in trying to complete them. One main problem I run into is the scope of my projects. I have the habit of trying to make the end result over complicated so I have trouble completing what I want the project to turn out into. One thing I have to get better is road mapping my projects. This doesn’t mean releasing an unfinished project, it means releasing a project that has reached its first main milestone goal and then working on the next step with feedback from the end user. Most of the projects will never be completed without bugs, as they are inevitable. But releasing a project it better than not releasing it at all.
I first came across freeCodeCamp late last year while trying to find another resource to help learn for a project I have been planning, but now I am getting more into using the site to learn. Currently, I am on challenge 119 on their roadmap to learning.
Some of what I am learning is a refresher but a lot of the material is new to me. In my experience, I haven’t been a big user of jQuery and advanced CSS. Most of my experience has come from HTML and PHP. Most of the design work was usually completed by someone else.
I have recently been told to get more involved in the open source community and for me to get more involved I need to learn more code to help in other ways other than support and documentation.
Here’s to completing some of my projects in the coming weeks/months, so I can share them with you.
March 3rd brings the release of the Nintendo Switch with games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Bomberman R. Those are just two of the games I am looking forward to for that system.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is getting released on March 7th with Mass Effect: Andromeda being released on March 21st.
The last 3 Fridays in March bring the release of Beauty and the Beast on the 17th, Power Rangers on the 24th and The Zookeeper’s Wife on the 31st.
Some albums I am looking forward to this month are ÷ by Ed Sheeran and Love and War by Brad Paisley
This is looking like a better month that February.
Earlier this morning, Xbox Game Pass was announced to be released this Spring. The ability to have an accessible game collection on demand and be able to try games before I want to buy them.
20% of the purchase of a game will it is included in the game pass, with a 10% discount on add-ons for those games as well. On a normal $59.99 game, a 20% discount would mean at $47.99 game, a savings of $12 a game. After buying more than 1 game a month, the discount works out.
With the continuation of Games with Gold as well, this service is going to make the release of Project Scorpio
I will definitely be purchasing this service. Time to clear my Xbox hard drive and work on my current backlog of games.
