Welcome to the far-flung future of 2018. We know it’s the future, because we have VR. We also know most people have given up on their New Year’s resolutions by now. Fortunately for you, our commitment to gaming runs a little deeper than buying a gym membership and joining a diet fad that focuses on giving yourself tapeworms. (Yes, it really was a thing.)
Here is what we are doing this weekend to keep our resolutions to gaming strong throughout 2018 and beyond. Be sure to drop your weekend plans in the comments with any suggestions on what we should be buying or playing.
I once again bought an unhealthy amount of games that were on super sale this week. Starting today I’m going to finish Shadow of the Beast and starting Valley and Sherlock Holmes The Devil’s Daughter. Looking forward to the latter and its predecessor Crimes and Punishments was actually pretty good. Plus, Shiness The Lightning Kingdom is looking for me to play it as well.
After a week of putting pen to paper (or, technically, finger to keyboard) I am going to reward myself with a return to Gotham in the Return to Arkham collection. Although it is far from a perfect remaster / port, it’s Batman, and that’s good enough for me. I’d better get some harvesting done in Stardew Valley, as well. That bigger backpack won’t buy itself.
The siren song of Yakuza Kiwami has temporarily stopped me from playing Assassin’s Creed Origins. It feels good to be back in Kamurocho. If I have some extra time, I will be racking up some flight hours with (the very cheap right now) End Space on PSVR.
Everyone else has been hit by a New Year’s plague. We have sent them to the finest hospitals in the world for treatment, and the doctors from the Umbrella Corporation have assured us they are doing fine.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
