Sometimes, life’s experiences can teach us something new and valuable to make us better people. Sometimes, it’s just a swift kick to our tender bits or a sparky reminder that forks shouldn’t be poked into electrical outlets. Depending on your situation, it could be both. Education can come from good and bad events and choices.
Games are a way of learning, even though some might doubt that statement. There is the reward for hard work, which can be a grind in reality too. The ideas of raising your stats in-game correlates to self-improvement benefits in the real world. You can even have difficult bosses to face in both. Learning the right strategy to victory or recovering after a defeat and trying again is a universal theme. You might even be a hero in two or more worlds.
Here is how we will be learning this weekend. What are your plans?
I’ve bought myself a couple of cheap and kinda cheerful VR games to play over the weekend. I’ll be exploring the mass grave known as the Titanic with Titanic VR, and then I’ll head out into space with the Apollo 11 VR experience for PSVR. On the topic of VR, I’ll be heading back into No Man’s Sky on PSVR to make a bit more headway on my adventure before sitting down to write the review. Oh, and I’ve still got other reviews that I’ve not gotten around to putting on the page yet, so I’ll be keeping myself busy.
Hopefully I’ll get some time with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey again as I’m on the 2nd to last DLC. Alexios really wants to get out of Hades. Black Desert though needs to be completed and it’s probably going to be on many future PP plays. Wreckfest will get some multiplayer love once it releases on Tuesday.
With The Yakuza Remastered Collection announced, I’ll be working on Yakuza Kiwami 2. I was distracted by the cabaret club minigame for hours, but I never finished a lot of the actual game.
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.
