This weekend will be dedicated to fans watching what licensing deals force some people to call “the big game”. People might also be tuning in to watch the commercials made by high performing marketing teams. It’s a time for friends and family to celebrate, regret that their team didn’t make it, and eat multi-layer dips. Those are critical.
Gaming has its own events like E3 and Gamescom in which writers of questionable fitness (that’s us this year too!) run all day to try to cover as many trailers and presentations as possible. Fans at home cheer, discuss, and argue about those announcements and watch trailers repeatedly to analyze the gameplay. Multi-layer dips aren’t necessarily guaranteed, but it’s your house. Make what you want.
Whether you’re watching “the big game” this weekend or playing a big game, take care of yourselves. If you don’t have any other plans or games, it’s a great time to go to the movies. Here’s what we’ll be doing this weekend.
Knocked back a bit with overdoing it on the screen this week so I’ll be recuperating when I can. Watching Ni No Kuni on Netflix this evening which is prompting another playthrough over the weekend of the same-titled game, albeit on the PS3. Depending on how I feel, going on a retro gaming hunt tomorrow to see if I can find any PS2 goodies, plus a few Xbox 360 titles.
I have a Journey to the Savage Planet to complete and Greedfall is still many hours away from completion. Plus, I downloaded Disc Jam again for just a few matches of old glory. Once I’m satisfied there I will take my talents to Creed: Rise to Glory to show I’m better than Chris at combat.
Again, I’m spending half of my weekend working at the dump hole of a store I despise. Still, there’s some joy to be had, even within its wicked walls. I’ve really gotten into streaming lately, and so I’ve been streaming PC and Xbox games to my phone. I’m planning on spending a bit of time playing The Ballad of Gay Tony on my phone, and maybe a bit of Awesomenauts, too. When I’m not skiving off at work, I’ll be playing some non-scary VR games like The Climb and OnwardVR. I’ve got a couple of reviews to catch up on, too, so if I’m not too bushed out from all of my time-stealing at work, I’ll see if I can get cracking on some reviews.
Having just purchased Journey to The Savage Planet my weekend looks sorted, wandering about admiring the alien flora and fauna and eating goo while I download the fairly solid PS Plus games for this month – Bioshock Collection, Sims 4 and Firewall Zero Hour are all ticking the right boxes for me. The big question is – are the Pure Playstationers ready for a late edition to their Firewall Team?
My favorite football team is playing in the Super Bowl this weekend, so I’m mostly just waiting for that. When I was a young boy and my team played in the big game, it would fill me with one part excitement and about twenty parts stress. Now that I’m a mature adult it’s equal measure stress and excitement. To take my mind off of that, I’ll be slinking around Nola, scavenging everything that isn’t nailed down and sticking screwdrivers in the ear of a couple hundred undead on The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. It is easily the best VR game I’ve played in a while.
I’m trying to actually finish more games this year, so I’ll be hopping on my motorcycle for more Days Gone. I still have mixed feelings about the game, but I’m still enjoying it. If I can work the schedule right, I’ll join the team for some Firewall Zero Hour. I like to locate the enemies by letting them shoot me in the head.
