Weekend Whammy: The New Year Edition

First, a very happy New Year to everyone out there! And if you don’t celebrate New Year, then I hope you have a very happy whatever day this is. It’s honestly boggling my mind that we’re moving into a whole new decade. Hell, I still think 2000 was like ten years ago. It’s an exciting, crazy time. I’ve been reflecting a little on what the last decade has brought in gaming, from the good to the bad. We’ve seen the rise of loot boxes, season passes and various other forms of monetization, the domination of games like Fortnite and wonderful pieces of art like God of War, The Last of Us and The Witcher 3. And of course in 2020 we’re going see the new generation of consoles hitting the market.

Weekend Whammy: Boneworks, The Witcher Show & Sneezing

Hello my friends, I’ve somehow managed to acquire another bloody cold, so I’ve not really been doing very much over the past couple of days. Still, I wanted to get a Weekend Whammy out there and ask about what you fine folks have been playing over the past week or two?

Weekend Whammy: Discworld Remaster, Fallen Order & KoToR

It has been a long way, my friends. I love my white German Shepard doggo (called Laoch) to bits, but as any dog owner will tell you life with a four-legged woofer can be tricky sometimes. At the moment we’ve got some field mice who have decided to set up home in our walls, and unfortunately the sounds they make as they move around is freaking my dog out during the night. He paces, he growls, he barks, he tries to hide in all manner of strange places. Because of this it means I have to be awake with him, so I’m operating on nearly no sleep. It’s not fun. It’s not fun for my dog, either, of course.

Weekend Whammy: Death Stranding, Blizzcon & Price’s Beard

Behold, another weekend has passed and thus, as is the great Lord’s command, it is time for another Weekend Whammy that isn’t actually on the bloody weekend. I’d like to open this week by telling you that my left leg is currently dead because I’ve developed a baffling habit of folding it under my right leg over the past few weeks and for the life of me I can’t stop doing it. I’m doing it without thinking about it and then 30-minutes later I swear loudly because I tried to stand up and instead ended up wobbling around like some cooked spaghetti trying to walk. Why the hell do us humans do weird stuff like this? What is wrong with us?

Weekend Whammy: The Surge 2, Stardew Valley & Blizzard

Hello my dear friends, it’s time for another Weekend Whammy that ain’t actually on the weekend! If you didn’t already know the Weekend Whammy posts are where I chat about the reviews I’ve put up in the past week, what’s coming up, what I’ve been playing and more. Of course, it’s also where I want to know what you guys have been playing! Drop me a comment so we can chat games.

Weekend Whammy: I’m Back, Baby! & Ubisoft Are Being Dicks

Hello my beloved friends and enemies, I’m sorry about my radio silence for the past few weeks! I did mean to write a Weekend Whammy two weekends back but I fell into a bit of a slump as my depression reared its horrifying head again and I couldn’t get myself into the mood to write much of anything. I’ve thumped it with a stick a few times though, and reckon all is well again. Or at least, I thumped something with a stick and it stopped moving, so…
