Welcome back my packmates, it’s time for another wildly inconsistent Weekend Whammy! Hurrah! Personal life at the moment continues to be a messy affair filled with more drama and intrigue than the early seasons of Game of Thrones, so getting anything done is a bit of a challenge. Still, I’m here, we’re head, so what am I chattering about this week? Well, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition impressions, mostly, but there’s also a bunch of Sony news to tackle, Valve games maybe coming to console and how there are 25 Playstation games currently being made. Let’s jump in, yeah?

Weekend Whammy: Sony Woes & Failing Power Supplies
Y’know the expression, life kicking you when you’re down? I realized it isn’t so much life somehow getting worse, but more that relatively small problems feel so much worse because you’re already stressed and angry. I’m encountering this right now. On my post where I talked about taking a quick break I mentioned some…personal family troubles we’re going through regarding my sibling. Things are still rough at the moment, and while I don’t mean to diminish how bad it is for my sibling, the stress and stuff does transfer over. I’m not sleeping well, I’m worried, I’m tired, I’m angry, hence the need for a break. But anyway, back to the point: it looks like my power supply in my PC is on the fritz, and so it just feels like life has stuck on its steel-capped work boots, taken a few steps back so it can get a proper run up and has kicked me right in the ribcage. Of course, that’s not the case. I think it’s more that my power supply dying isn’t a huge problem, or at least not one I’d stress over this much normally. Sure, I don’t have the cash to replace it, but normally I’d get annoyed, shrug it off and just accept that these things happen and that my computer could end up being out of action for a short while in the near future. But because of everything else, I’ve taken this whole power supply like a personal affront to my existence as if God himself emerged from the clouds and broke it. It’s like an entirely unjustifiable feeling of anger I have toward my power supply right now. Like, if it was a person I’d kick it in the balls and make some sort of joke about its mamma.

Weekend Whammy Ep. 2 – More Six Days In Fallujah & Are The New Consoles Any Good? (TEXT VERSION)
Hello and welcome back to the Weekend Whammy. I’m your host with the most crippling depression. I thought I’d kick off this week with a random fun fact about myself. One of my greatest pet peeves is people who go to petrol stations, get their petrol and then proceed to do about a week’s worth of shopping. Look, just get your petrol, pay for it, get back in the car, go park up and then go do your shopping. Don’t make me sit 20 minutes behind you in a car, waiting for you to find which broccoli you want to eat. Right, get in the car, GO!
Weekend Whammy Ep. 2 – More Six Days In Fallujah & Are The New Consoles Any Good? (AUDIO)

Update on the last Weekend Whammy
Just a quick update on why there hasn’t been a written version of my previous Weekend Whammy. The plan was to transcribe my audio (with proper editing to make it work in written form) and post it up as a regular Weekend Whammy. Had I been smart I would have used some speech-to-text software while I was recording the episode to gave me a basic transcript to work from, but obviously I’m dumber than a brick with brain-damage.
