Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
2017 has been uncharacteristically stacked, as far as video game releases go. Thus far we’ve seen an incredible array of games in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn, NieR: Automata, Resident Evil VII, Splatoon 2, ARMS, Prey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nioh, Injustice 2, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and Yakuza 0, with smaller titles like Cosmic Star Heroine, Tacoma, Rime, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and What Remains of Edith Finch? also winning over the hearts of many.
And the crazy part? There’s even more in the pipeline for the next five months — Super Mario Odyssey has “game of the year” contender written all over it, not to mention Metroid: Samus Returns on 3DS, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Destiny 2, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Fire Emblem Warriors, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, The Evil Within 2, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Vampyr, Crackdown 3, and Horizon: Zero Dawn’s upcoming DLC, The Frozen Wild.
Yeah. That’s pretty fucking intense.
While my birthday isn’t until the 20th, fellow WordPress blogger and all-around swell guy @TheDeviot from CommaEightCommaOne sent me an early gift. He’s been after me to play Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams for what feels like two years, and now I don’t have an excuse.
The Dragon’s Milk is an 11% alcohol by volume chocolate stout with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and chilies. I’m quite excited to crack both open on the 20th in celebration of my “old as fuck” 36th birthday.
Thanks again, dude. This means a lot!
This week’s episode of CA! Radio is now live for your listening pleasure! It’s Omar’s turn to choose the weekly topic, and he chose something that’s completely foreign to me — football.
Since I’m all about “equality and shit,” and I love my Canadian followers/friends, I made sure that he included the CFL as well in our NFL playoff predictions.
