Huzzah – the weekend’s back. In your face, working week! Two days of quality game-playing time await, free from your iron grip of rules, and like, having to wear pants and shit! Let freedom ring, let freedom ring!
Anyways, how’s your game-playing weekend shaping up? Are you continuing with a massive open-worlder, finally fitting in a short indie game whilst you can, or doing something else entirely? Is there anything you’re stuck on, uncertain about buying, or are you at a Gaming loose end and looking for recommendations from fellow Gamers? Is there something on the Gaming horizon that you’re particularly excited about, something you’d like to chat about with fellow enthusiasts?
If the answer to any of that is a yes, please feel free to use this space to ask away, or chat, or just generally enjoy the company of your gaming brethren/sistren. We’re a friendly, knowledgeable bunch, so don’t be shy. There’s no dress code, and we’re totally OK with the no pants thing, so come in, make yourself at home, and enjoy some gaming chitchat.
Oh, and Happy Weekend…..

For my part, my “gaming” this weekend is likely to involve a fair amount of time with a little-known simulator called ‘rescuing your own feet from tiny teeth that hurt like a son of a bitch!’. Depending on how that goes, I might be able to fit in some time on Just Cause 3. If that fails, I may reacquaint myself with my PSVita, which is pretty good for playing in short bursts while the savage foot chewing beast sleeps (and it’s easy to keep out of reach of the aforementioned teeth).
Whilst I’m here though, I’d like to thank everyone for their advice and support last week when I asked about blogging tips and tricks. It was much appreciated, and (I’ve said it before, but….) I’m genuinely loving the community aspect of this blogging malarkey.
Also, quick question for Pine717 – are you playing JC3 on a PS4, or PC?

I am playing on the PC.

Ah, OK. I was going to ask if you’d be kind enough to ‘throw me some shade’, or ‘hollah at me’ or whatever the thing is where I have to beat your score and/or have you beat mine is.
Not to worry though!

I think I’ve been saying this for weeks now, but I really, really need to wrap up The Witness. I thought I was going to beat it last week, but there was more there than I expected. Hopefully, I’ll finally put a stake in it before Monday morning.
I’m also close to beating the PS4 version of Gravity Rush, so hopefully I’ll get through that this weekend too. It’s not a very difficult game, and easy games are usually a turn off for me, but I’ve been surprised by how interesting the story is. It looks good on the PS4, but it’s clear that it was a Vita game to begin with.
I am playing JC3 and Nova-111 here and there. Nova-111 I think was a PS plus game either this month or last month. I don’t remember, all I know is I never bought it, I just found it in my library. It’s a bit hard to describe what type of game it is. It’s sort of like a roguelike (like the old RPGs, not the new meaning of roguelike). It has turn-based movements and actions, but its more like an adventure game. It’s been interesting to try out.

Wow, The Witness is very much looking like a great value for money purchase. 😉
I had a brief go on Gravity Rush back when I first got my Vita, and I thought it was pretty cool – and I keep meaning to get back on it. I wasn’t quite sure how it would translate on the PS4, precisely because it seemed to be a showcase for all the Vita thingumyjigs, but I suppose there are ways around that – especially if the story’s compelling enough.
And yeah, Nova 111 is a PS+ game right now, I think. I wasn’t going to bother with it, but I think I will now – it sounds quite interesting. And it’s free, so, you know, not a whole lot to lose trying it out!

Still just continuing my little village in Banished. I knew I would get hooked once I started. I’ve been eyeing the new Fire Emblems as a future purchase.

If it’s that addictive, maybe it’s a good thing my laptop’s garbage!
