Weekend Gaming Doodah #6

We’re there, finally: The weekend! Huzzah, and thank fuck for that because this week was brutal, and it just felt like I was getting pummelled by an End of Level Boss over and over and over again.

And when I say a “bit fond”, I of course, mean “absolutely besotted with”, and in a way I’ve not been besotted with anything since Data’s gadget belt in The Goonies.
