After a busy week at school, due to an exam, a term paper, and the start of a new accelerated class, I’m definitely ready to unwind with a good game or two. I just don’t know which one.
What are you folks getting in to this weekend?
I was originally going to play through the new release of Dear Esther: Landmark Edition, but I ended up playing through it the day it launched instead. It was a pretty depressing game, which seems to be one of my favorite things to experience, despite suffering from depression myself. Weird how that works, no?
I liked the narration, the setting, and piecing the story together, and I definitely feel it’s a better narrative experience than The Chinese Room’s newer offering Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture.
Although I still have reviews for Jotun: Valhalla Edition and Mount & Blade: Warband, I haven’t had enough time to dedicate to either game in order to give them a fair critique. Maybe this weekend, but I’ve been so involved in reviewing games lately that I kind of want to sit down and enjoy something for myself.
I never got around to Layers of Fear, so that’s always a possibility. It’s officially fall, it’s a horror game, so there’s never been a better time to dig in.
I’ve been wanting to start a beefy RPG, since fall break is coming up in November. That’d give me enough time to chip away at the (assumed) slow beginning moments and then spend my break muscling out as much as possible.
Or I could just finish up I am Setsuna, which I kind of forgot about. Or The Witness, which I also forgot about.
There’s a Flash Sale on PSN right now, but nothing is catching my eye. I was considering Day of the Tentacle Remastered, but I’m not in the mood for a point-and-click adventure game right now. This is the same reason I haven’t picked up Virginia or The Bunker yet, although both are high on my to-do list.
Then again, I did sell a few games on eBay in order to buy the BioShock Collection, which I still haven’t grabbed.
…I think I might be in a gaming funk.
