I don’t know what corner of the spinning blue orb that you all call home, but where I’m at today, it’s hot. It may not be the dog days of summer just yet, but it’s damn hot. You could even say Super Hot. If I were you, I’d crank up the air conditioner, curl up on the couch, and play some video games. That’s what the cool kids are doing. Us too.
I’m still playing and enjoying some Arizona Sunshine, but the top priority I have right now is a top-secret game for review. I can’t tell you what it is right now, but it’s pretty hot.
With work beating me to within an inch of an early grave, I’m in serious need of some quality gaming time. I’ve got my Rock Band 4 kit set up for Saturday night booze and banging, just like a real rock star. When I tire of flailing pathetically at my drums, I’ll be going back into Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor in an effort to get “hyped” for the upcoming sequel, Shadow of War. And finally, it’s about time I got round to my annual playthrough of Spyro 3, though without a PS Vita I’ll have to make do with the PSTV and its wonky aspect ratio.
After a few months off I’m venturing back to Andromeda to see if Mass Effect has improved any in my absence. If not I will probably end up revisiting Skyrim in anticipation of the PSVR version later in the year, hoping to avoid an arrow to the knee.
I will be playing the greatest game of all – family vacation. With the difficulty of Dark Souls, we will squeeze half a home into an automobile and drive for hours in the most boring racing sim you have ever encountered. I will still try to squeeze my Vita into the car somewhere to make sure I am not completely separated from my electronic crack.
The best final fantasy and a personal top five game of all time is back to life. FFXII The Zodiac Age all DAMN weekend.
You know the drill, ladies and gents. Tell us what you’re playing … or what you want to be playing. Or tell us anything. We’re not too picky.
