We’re one weekend closer to the end of 2016. How will you be spending it?
It took nearly 48 hours, but I completed Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization. I tried jumping in to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and God Eater: Resurrection afterwards, but neither of them stuck. I just wasn’t in the mood for repetitive grinding, I guess.
I wanted something more linear and easier to swallow, so I started the reboot of Doom last night. Man, what a game.
I actually rented Doom a few days after my dad passed away, but I just wasn’t in the mood for… well, anything. Right now though, it’s just what the doctor ordered. It’s gorgeous, fluid, and pulse pounding, from the ferocious monster designs and their aggressive A.I. to the demonically delicious world design. It’s shaping up to be one of my favorite games of the year.
Doom should (hopefully) be finished before Final Fantasy XV releases, seeing as how I’m already docked at the halfway point. If I can muscle through it ahead of schedule, I may try and squeeze in the Dishonored remaster as well since I know someone got me Dishonored 2 for Christmas.
With finals week and my Sword Art review keeping me busy, I didn’t have time to catch up on comics. My girlfriend and I watched the new Ice Age (which was great, btw) and Lights Out (which was not great, btw), but otherwise the last two weeks of the Fall semester have been the opposite of enjoyable.
I caved during the PlayStation Black Friday sale and picked up Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, Just Cause 3 with its season pass, and Far Cry Primal with its season pass for about $45. I limited myself to $50, so that worked out nicely.
What about you folks? What are you getting in to this weekend?
