Fri–er, oops. Saturday. Video games. Let’s talk anyway!
My family and I have been incredibly busy this week and we’re having another garage sale this morning, so I completely spaced putting up a Freakin’ Weekend post while it was actually Friday.
Not a lot of free time this weekend, so what little I do have will likely go to WoW again. I have my three characters leveled to max and still have a handful of reputations to grind out to revered for Legion flying, but we’ve been making steady progress here and there.
God of War released yesterday to stellar reviews and I’m certainly interested in playing it at some point, but I’m not in a hurry. I’ve never been overly attached to the series. This seems like a drastic departure and more my speed; I just don’t have 20-30 hours to spare right now that I can devote to a lore-heavy experience.
Anyone out there in readerland pick it up? What about the new Nintendo LABO stuff?
I did rent Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers on Switch and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it in short bursts. Street Fighter II is one of the most important games of all time for me, so it’s worth noting that I do have a bit of a personal bias here. The new art style is hit or miss, depending on the character, but it feels pretty solid and still offers the retro style for purists. I haven’t checked out the new modes or hopped online yet, though. Not sure it’s $50 good, but I definitely dig it.
Behind the scenes, I’ve been working on a list of my “100 favorite games of all time” and plan to release them in sets of ten. It’ll have to wait until things slow down here, but it seems like a fun batch of posts. Splitting them into groups should provide a steady flow of content here as well. I saw The Well-Red Mage doing something similar via Twitter, so it appears we’re once again connected to a spiritual hive-mind!
This is another short weekend wrap-up for me, but what are your gaming plans this weekend?
