This week I put out the review for Spinnortality, a cool little management game where you run a corporation. While it didn’t have the depth needed to keep me playing for longer than I needed to for the review, I still appreciated the idea of amassing money and power by selling new products and gently nudging laws in my favour. Or, y’know, just launching an espionage mission to kill the current ruler before basically taking over the entire country and using the current government as little more than a glorified puppet for my master plans. Being evil is fun.
I missed last weekend’s Weekend Whammy, but I’m back and as mediocre as ever! HUZZAH! And this damn cold I’ve had since New Year finally seems to be loosening its grasp on me. I still feel rough around the edges, but I’m considerably better than I was, so let’s do this!
By this weekend I was meant to have my review of Smoke and Sacrifice posted for all the world to read and scoff at. You might have noticed that hasn’t happened. The reason is that pesky cold I caught around New Year has now managed to burrow its way into my sinuses and ears and clog everything up. My right ear feels like it has an ear plug in it, I can’t stand up without falling flat on my face, I’m bouncing madly between being too hot and being too cold, and I have the constant urge to throw up. Needless to say, I am not a happy bunny right now.
Could you not stare at the screen so loudly? I’m nursing a hangover here. Yes, stupid me was out drinking at the weekend but forgot I was on some heavy medication, so now I’ve got a headache and killer stomach ache. Ah well, ’twas a good night filled with fun and friends.
So, we’re now officially into 2019 which means hopefully we have an entire year of fantastic games ahead of us. Of course, what it really means is an entire year of trying to remember to write 2019 on forms instead of 2018.
It’s the first weekend after the madness of Christmas! I hope everyone reading this had a hell of a time, regardless of how you chose to spend it. Me? I had a good one filled with family and good food. But I also seem to have picked up a cold from somewhere, so right now I’m huddled up in a dressing gown and yelling at anyone who isn’t bringing me Lemsips.
Oh, hello there, weekend! I didn’t see you standing menacingly in the shadows. How are you these fine holidays? What? What’s that? Why have you got that!? No! NO! NOOOOO! Stop stabbing me with a candy cane, you foul beast! ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!
I blinked suddenly the weekend was nearly over! What the hell is that about? And there’s just over a week until Christmas? Oh god.
By the luxurious beard of Thor’s angelic face, it’s the freaking weekend yet again, meaning that Christmas is now looming like Santa standing over the kid who is at the very tippy-top of the naughty list.
The weekend has snuck up like some sort of professional hitman and executed a perfect stealth take down on my sorry excuse for a body. Still, weekends mean its time to pack in a whole lot of gaming, movies, books and other entertainment. Let’s do it!
I’m going to keep this one relatively brief as my new nephew (he’s four months old) has come to visit this weekend. For the most part I’ve been putting in the time with Darksiders 3, a game I’ve been eagerly awaiting and was genuinely afraid we’d never see given the IP was in limbo for a long time. It hasn’t blown me away so far and I do sort of miss the loot system from Darksiders 2, but it has been a pretty solid action romp with awesome art design.
