Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
I’ve had my Nintendo Switch for a little over a week now, and I’ve spent nearly every ounce of my free time putting it through its paces. I’ve played single-player games offline and spent a few hours online splatting the world with ink during the Splatoon 2 testfire event. I’ve used my Switch docked in TV mode, un-docked in portable mode during car trips, and propped up with a kickstand during marathon sessions of Breath of the Wild from the comfort of my bed.

The weekend is finally upon us. Awesome. How will you be spending it?
When my friends and I jumped in to Elder Scrolls Online at launch, there was a unanimous sense of disappointment in the air. As we created our characters and ended up questing on opposite sides of the world, we realized something: for being an MMO, they certainly made it difficult to play with other people.
Today marks my official last day of the Fall 2016 semester, and boy, what a stressful trip it’s been. I’m actually in the midst of my Film Genre Studies term paper as I write this, but I just needed the break. So you can bet I’ll be spending the weekend unwinding with a good game or three.
What about you folks?
Mount & Blade: Warband
Developer: TaleWorlds Entertainment
Publisher: TaleWorlds Entertainment
Available on: Xbox One (2016, reviewed), PS4 (2016), PC (2010)
For being a 6-year old PC game, Mount & Blade: Warband still seems to have quite the following. The medieval sandbox RPG recently released on PS4 and Xbox One, and while it’s highly doubtful the PC faithful will migrate to current-gen consoles, it does introduce a new sect of player to the land of Calradia.
However, as someone with no attachment to the series on PC in 2010, I found the game extremely overwhelming when giving it a go on the Xbox One in 2016.
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?
