The UbiBlog Weekly: Gamer Resolutions

The beginning of a new year is when people all around the world are coming up with resolutions for themselves. Eat better, read more, learn to whittle. If you’re like us, you have already abandoned all these ambitions in a haze of post-holiday pie and movie binge sessions. However, there are a few promises we’ve made to ourselves that we really want to see through to the end. These are our Gamer Resolutions.

Alphabetize Our Collections – This one seems like a gimme, but it’s about time we invest in some new shelf space for our ever-expanding collection of games. Time to pull everything out and reorganize.

Perfect Run – This is definitely a stretch goal, but we’d love to achieve a perfect run on every level in Rayman Legends. So far… not so good. We’re doing our best, though.

100% Sync – We’re just a hair away from getting 100% sync on Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. There are just a couple more Animus Fragments and the Legendary Ships and then we’ll have this in the bag.

Learn to Play Well With (and Against) Others – How do we put this nicely? We aren’t good at working with teams. It’s not you, it’s us. We just find ourselves getting frustrated by the poor saps who happen to find themselves paired with us. It doesn’t matter if they are strangers or dear friends. This year, that will all change. We’re going to learn to cooperate, but we know we need to keep our enemies closer. We’ll definitely be spending a lot more time in competitive multiplayer in the coming year.

Outside the Comfort Zone – We tend to gravitate toward genres we know and are good at. This year, we’re going to start branching out. Maybe you’re the same way. Maybe you love Assassin’s Creed and have never given a game like Might & Magic Duel of Champions a second thought. Well, it’s free. So that’s silly. Give something new a try.
