Here is another update to the Video Games I am Now Playing. I am still in the middle of working through several game series that I detailed in the last now-playing post. It’s the same list I was working on before. Some are still pending or on hold as I swap around games a lot. The ones on hold I’ll get back to in time.
I am still working through several Video Game series that are left unfinished. The Halo series, the Gears of war series, and the Yakuza series specifically. Those are the three video game series I intended to clear all the games for and have been slowly working through over time. On the last “Now Playing,” I listed out a detailed breakdown of where I was at with all of them. The status of most is still the same.
The Halo video game series is right where I left off. I am about 80% through Halo Infinite. On Halo Wars 1, I am on mission 5. I haven’t started on Halo Wars 2 yet. I took a break from the halo series to focus on some others, but when I get back to it, I’ll wrap up the rest of the series. I played Halo 1 a little not too long ago and cleared about 2-3 missions. Then when I got stuck on the 5th mission, I took a break and haven’t circled back around to it.
I am still playing Gears of war, I am currently still on the 4th one. Still stuck on the Swarmack. I haven’t tried again since the last post, but at some point soon, I’ll pick it back up and beat the 4th one and work through the rest of the current series.
Yakuza is the one that currently has my focus. I have made a good bit of progress in this series since the last post. The last time I posted, I was in the middle of Yakuza Kiwami 2.
Since then, I beat Yakuza Kiwami 2 (About 120 hours of gameplay), I beat Yakuza 3 remastered (about 20 hours of gameplay), and now I am working through Yakuza Remastered 4. That’s ended up being my main focus over the last month.
I also recently found out there are some other games in the series I was not aware of (Yakuza Judgement, another judgment game, and Gaiden and a few others). So those are getting added to my list.
I am not working towards 100% completion on any of the Yakuza games right now, but I am ending each one at a newly started “Premium adventure,” and once I beat the entire series, I may go back to some of the game and dabble around with 100% completion but I’m not sure about that yet.
Aside from these video game series, I haven’t been playing as many other games lately. I have a few I’ve downloaded but haven’t started yet. ‘I’ve been putting a lot of time into Yakuza lately, and that’s been my main focus.
However, Gears of War has been pulling at my attention lately. So I may switch back to Gears 4 and work my way through the last of that series soon. I have to finish Gears of War 4, and then I’d have to play Gears of War 5 and Gears of War Tactics. Those are the only 2 I have left in the series, aside from 4, which I am near the end of. That’ll be another entire series I finished.
I will post another update in a few months. Hopefully, by then, I’ll have completed the Gears of War series and be much further along in the Yakuza series. There are a lot of games in that series, and close to 100 hours for each game, so it takes a long time. Even though I am not doing 100% completion, I am still doing all combat stuff, substories, and several other things that interest me.
