2010 Recap

Back on New Year’s Day 2010 I put down a list of goals for the year and this is how I did with them.

1. Read 12 books this year. – I finished The Age of Ra by James Lovegrove in December and that pushed me to 14 books finished during the year. RESULT: COMPLETED.

2. Hit the 300 films viewed threshold this year. – I watched 31 films in December which brings to a total of 243 on the year. RESULT: FAIL

3. Finish Final Fantasy XII before playing Final Fantasy XIII. – I got bored with XII early on in the year and it kind of soured me towards any JRPGs all year long. RESULT: FAIL

4. Give Shadow of the Colossus and Rogue Galaxy a shot. – I finished Shadow of the Colossus and I played a bit of Rouge Galaxy (enough to know that I want to play more of it) RESULT: COMPLETED

5. Hit 75,000 Gamerscore and hit 500 PS3 Trophies. – GS: 75316 Trophies: 550 RESULT: COMPLETED

6. Finish Dragon Age: Origins on the PC. – I gave it a go but it never happened. RESULT: FAIL

7. Prestige twice in Modern Warfare 2. – Yeah… RESULT: FAIL

8. Write 52 reviews (games, films, albums, books, what-have-you) for this here blog. – It ended up being something like 66 reviews for the year. RESULT: COMPLETED
