MLB Offseason “To Play” List Review

When the 2010 MLB season ended, I put together a list of games that I wanted to finish during the offseason. Since the 2011 season started a few days ago, I figured that it made sense to take a look at my progress because accountability is important.

  • Age of Empires 3 (PC)
  • Baroque (Wii)
  • Baten Kaitos: Origins (GameCube)
  • Eternal Sonata (360)
  • Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermilion (PSP)
  • Legend of Heroes: Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch (PSP)
  • Legend of Heroes: Song of the Ocean (PSP)
  • Kirby’s Epic Yarn (Wii)
  • Metroid: The Other M (Wii)
  • Neverwinter Nights (PC)
  • Neverwinter Nights 2 (PC)
  • Ninja Gaiden 2 (360)
  • No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii)
  • Resonance of Fate (Ps3)
  • Rule of Rose (PS2)
  • Uncharted 2 (PS3)
  • Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)
  • Zak and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure (Wii)

I wound up finishing 8 of the 18 games on the list, which actually is better than I expected given some of the distractions I ran into.

Here are the updates for the games I didn’t finish:

Baroque: I’m in the middle of the second to last cycle but have no healing items which has sort of killed my enthusiasm because I think I need to reboot the cycle which is frustrating.

Baten Kaitos: Origins: Not yet started

Eternal Sonata: Hasn’t done a great job of keeping me interested enough to keep playing. I’ll give it another try soon probably.

Legend of Heroes: Song of the Ocean: I finished up Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch two days before baseball season kicked off and started this game, it’s currently in progress.

Metroid: The Other M: Not yet started

Ninja Gaiden 2: Not yet started

Resonance of Fate: In progress, currently in the middle of chapter 5. I forgot to save right after finishing a tough boss fight and died doing a side mission so I’m taking a break because I’m mad at myself.

Rule of Rose: My PS2 died 🙁

Valkyria Chronicles: In progress, I started playing it just around the time that I got distracted by a whole bunch of PC games. I’m planning to pick it back up after finishing Resonance of Fate.

Zak and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure: Just have to knock out the last level, which is tough. Decided to take a break before attacking it again.
