The silver lining of game promotion in this crazy year is that any company from the massive publishers to tiny devs can easily promote with a website and some gameplay on YouTube, and no one has to leave the house. There are different formats, but, beyond the games, what makes a good online gaming show? Do you like a stripped-down, casual video, or do you want the glam of a fancy production? What’s your perfect show?
While you ponder that, here is what we’ll be doing this weekend. Be sure to leave your plans and a thoughtful answer in the comments.
I plan on streaming and finishing Night in the Woods this weekend. If I get bored I’ll probably play some Fallout New Vegas!
I’m wanting to give my heroes a Power level boost in The Avengers, so my weekend is taken up with daily and weekly challenges until I can’t take any more. Plus a couple of other games I need to get reviewing should keep me occupied.
I think I’m going to have an anime filled weekend of shenanigans. Earlier on in the week when I was sorting through my things, (it always feels like I’m sorting through my things…) I found Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Goku Edition on the PS3. I completely forgot I purchased this bad boy back in the day! I’ll be taking a trip down memory lane and seeing how badly this game has aged.
Actually, the Goku figure that came with this edition is still un-opened as well. That has led to a debate within-myself on whether I leave him intact or finally put him on display, decisions! Other than that, I’ve been meaning to watch the new Digimon Adventure series on Crunchyroll for a few weeks now. I think this may be the time to finally see if the new series will live up to the hype I’ve seen on twitter.
I will be turning in a couple of reviews this weekend, and then I’m scouring the backlog for whatever catches my eye. There are some unfinished purchases that I’ve been waiting to pick up again. Between games, I’ll watch the new episode of The Boys. The talented Giancarlo Esposito seems to be in everything these days, and I can’t wait to see him in Far Cry 6.

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.
