The new year is here and I’m very excited for what’s to come in the video game world in 2020. Two of my most highly anticipated games, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Last of Us Part 2 are releasing in the first half of the year (only 77 days until Animal Crossing!). I don’t have the whole year plotted out for the blog, but I wanted to give a little preview of things I’m planning for 2020.
Animal Crossing New Leaf Diaries becomes Animal Crossing New Horizons Diaries
I started my Animal Crossing Diaries series with New Horizons in mind. I plan to post at least once a week about what’s going on on my island. I’m super excited to see how my town develops and how creative I can get with crafting and designing.
Expanding on food in video games – The Legend’s Cookbook and more!
Cooking food featured in my favorite video games is something I’ve been really interested in, and when The Legend’s Cookbook, whose recipes are inspired by food in various Zelda games, comes out in March, I plan on making as many of them as possible and posting about it on here. I’d also like to try out food from other games, like Pokémon, Skyrim, and Undertale, to name a few.
More fun/creative posts – like Zelda wine pairings
I’ve really enjoyed writing my Zelda wine pairing series so far, and I’d love to do lots of similar posts this year. While I’m not sure exactly how those will take form yet, I definitely know I want to take the video game experience beyond the screen.
2020 Game Releases
I have a small list of games I know for certain I’m going to play in 2020. I’m keeping it small for now because I have lots of pre 2020 games to catch up on. For now, my list includes Animal Crossing: New Horizons, The Last of Us Part 2, Rokï, Littlewood, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
My list of pre 2020 game releases that I want to finish this year is a bit ambitious, but I hope to make time for them just the same. I’ve already started many of the games, and I’d like to finish them. Those games include Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Darkwood, Ori and the Blind Forest, Death Stranding, Cadence of Hyrule, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Okami.
Brand new games for me that I’d like to play are Outer Wilds, Disco Elysium, Oxenfree, Wandersong, Hollow Knight, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Spider-man, and the Link’s Awakening remake. I’d also like to play any Zelda games I haven’t already.
There’s lots to do in 2020, but I’m hoping to keep a nice balance and have an enjoyable blogging experience.
