Time to turn my eyes away from huge workloads, and back onto my backlog
The last few weeks have been hard. When I haven’t been working, I have been hiding from the world in general. It hasn’t been the greatest of times.
But, that’s the job. It’s no different from retail work on the holidays, or hospitality staff on a Friday night. It’s a hard run, but it’s the job and it’s done.
So while I am looking at getting back into games I have been neglecting (and catching up with people I have missed), that doesn’t mean I haven’t played any games!
Blood Rage Digital – Steam
What can I say – it keeps pulling me back in. Blood Rage is a heap of fun to play, and being able to leave it open or end my day with a game has let me get in quite a few games.
Things are even being fixed at an amazing rate. I can even start a game in the morning, and come back to it later now.
I still say playing around a table with friends is better, but to kick back and enjoy a game solo on my own time is great. I have been increasing the difficulty and playing with the styles. This lead to my best score to date!
Check out my review for more thoughts, but expect to see Blood Rage for at least a couple more weeks in Last Week’s Gaming.
Minesweeper Genius – Switch
I picked this up to get through a few more levels, and it was a bit of fun.
While I am jumping between the relatively simple early levels to the pictured ‘Special’ levels, the difficulty jump is obvious.
Minesweeper Genius is a little bit of a sleeper hit on my Switch. Nice to play while I have YouTube running, and I can just turn it off when I feel overwhelmed.
Hopefully, I will be finished it all in a couple of weeks, and I will do a formal review then.
The Outer Worlds – Switch
As I wanted to finish my review, I obviously gave The Outer Worlds a bit of a run last week.
Everything I said holds true, and on the weekend while I had a half hour to kill I loaded up my save and did a small quest line. This is where games like this come to life on Switch.
That said, it will probably be a while before I finish this run. Now that end of financial year is done, I intend to jump back into Final Fantasy VII Remake with a gusto!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Switch
Another week down, and another week of jumping in and out of Animal Crossing. This week, I made a pretty good return on the Turnip exchange, and I have paid off my house!
I will probably go easy this week, as I hope to be playing some other games I have been neglecting. But it’s time to get my island renovations sorted 🙂
I am thinking a residential area, a rural area, and a fun area. Time to go shopping for stuff as well!
