I’ve not but began my spooky celebrations however I’m having fun with seeing different folks get into the spirit. What else are going to do in a wet early October? Do inform me when you’ve got good ghoulish plans, reader pricey. Oh! And whilst you’re at it, what are you taking part in this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!
I’ve been dipping into Immortals Fenyx Rising now it is on Game Pass, and what? It’s nonetheless a very good recreation, no regrets, nice lil weekend deal with.
I’m off in search of forest fungus this weekend. Maybe to not eat it? Probably to not eat it? Still studying about figuring out it. Should not eat it but. Unless…? I desire a online game which captures that feeling of dank woodland. Lush. Wet. Verdant. Ripe. Heavy. An excellent place to put down and die, or at the very least watch the Draconid meteor bathe if the sky is evident.
We’re nonetheless taking part in plenty of Splatoon on weekends, so I’ll be becoming a member of in with that. I’d prefer to make time for some extra Deathloop too. It’s been raining closely right here this week so I’m hoping for a break within the clouds to get out a bit. If not, then we’ll simply put our massive coats on and go striding off someplace anyway.
For me, most weekends contain sweating and consuming bananas, however this one is devoted to pissing myself with concern. I’m going to play The Quarry with a good friend, make some baffling selections, and guarantee all of the frat boys get torn to strips by a killer clown. Might even get a pizza! I do what I would like!
It’s spooky season, which implies it is time to get my group again on Phasmophobia. We’ll scream, we’ll die, and I will not play in VR as a result of the final time I did that, I smashed a lamp. Outside of video video games, I simply obtained a message from my native gaming retailer to let me know that they have a Magic: The Gathering Warhammer Necron deck with my identify on it. That’s all about demise, proper? Very spooky certainly.
I’m on vacation this week. Technically, we should always have been on precise vacation this week, gorging ourselves on the new chocolate rivers of Bruges, however Covid has scuppered our journey plans, so we’re staying dwelling as a substitute, in all probability taking part in some video video games on the couch. You know, to alter the behavior of a lifetime. More Xenoblade 3 will certainly be a function, however now I’ve completed Cult Of The Lamb, there are a couple of extra video games I wish to atone for earlier than the tip of 12 months rush. I’ve obtained my eye on Norco and Citizen Sleeper in the mean time (thanks Game Pass), and I’ve been which means to play Strange Horticulture for ages as effectively. Oh gawd, and there is God Of War to complete as effectively. Probably simply as effectively we’re staying dwelling, to be sincere. Too many video video games to play.
I’ve been taking part in plenty of Overwatch 2 this week and having a beautiful time, apart from after I lose 8 matches in a row and think about strolling into the ocean as a bit of sunshine aid. I’ll in all probability preserve taking part in that, as a result of I used to be born to undergo. Elsewhere, I lastly began Fallout: New Vegas on the Series X. I liked Fallout 3 again within the day, and though I purchased New Vegas at launch it by no means fairly obtained its hooks into me fairly like its predecessor. 12 years later I’m completely obsessed. Patrolling the Mojave nearly makes you want for a nuclear winter.
Overwatch 2 is the keynote speaker of my weekend. Now that the launch points appear to have been (largely) ironed out, I’m hoping to get a very good dozen or so extra video games performed with the gang. I’m having plenty of enjoyable taking part in as Sojourn and Kiriko in the mean time. Less so Junker Queen, however hey. Two out of three new heroes ain’t unhealthy.
With the method of Halloween comes a brand new looming concern: that I will not end a few of my GOTY contenders earlier than it is time for us to vote on our end-of-year checklist. Ghostwire: Tokyo was nearly all I performed this spring, however so many excellent — and crucially, comparatively brief — video games have been launched over the summer season that someway ending Ghostwire saved getting pushed to the again of the queue (maybe as a result of I’m so decided to 100% it). But dammit, it is suitably spooky and genuinely considered one of my favorite new titles of 2022: I vow I’ll see the ending earlier than Christmas!
But you, reader pricey, what are you taking part in this weekend?
