I knew I couldn’t keep it up forever since I have a yearly trip that involves being quite literally 100 miles from any cell service, but the release of Resident Evil: Village yesterday has killed my streak.
Well, I might not be the best to comment as I’ve still to break my steak from starting WK last year, but really, WK isn’t a game and it doesn’t matter if you break a streak or not. There are no special awards to be given.
In the end, it’s all about whether you’re learning what you’re reviewing and if you can put it to use. That’s all the reward there is.
Even if you reach lv 60 you’ll still just have to keep at those reviews when you have time, but you also need to take breaks - you’ve deserved it at that point!
A multi-day camping trip a while back killed my iKnow streak (requires daily communication with the site to maintain streak), but for Android users the Flaming Durtles app is all you need to keep your streak alive during long periods away from cell signal and wifi =D
My buddy and I both took a day off work to play it at the same time, so we got up at about 8 and played straight through. I think we took one bathroom break and one “pick up grubhub from the door” break and that was it until we both finished it. Then I was doing stuff later with other friends who wanted to see gameplay so I started another playthrough and streamed it.
I’m super excited to play through it the second time, gotta get all those weapon upgrades and turn it all the way to action-horror haha. Once this one is done I’ll do a third playthrough in Japanese too.
I do the same since I hit Lv60. Sometimes I just can’t bring myself to play the SRS game, and honestly now I realise that’s completely fine. I used to force myself to clear reviews every single day religiously, but I could have avoided some burnout had I left some days in between, streak be damned.
At the end of the day we are (or should be) here to learn, not to play a game, so it was about time I learned that it’s okay to take days off.
