Gaming so light, it’s like I was in the Lockup!
Well it’s been a week! Unfortunately, it wasn’t for all the things I like that take up all of the time 🙁
Less than 25 days to PAX means a lot of extra time spent working, which cuts into my gaming time. Adulting is hard!
That said I still got a couple of games in, let me tell you about them below 🙂
Game night was mainly catching up, which is always great because that is a big part of holding the night 🙂
We got in a game of Lockup: A Roll Player Tale at maximum players, and it was a lot of fun. Teaching four different people that take in rules differently was a bit of a challenge. It’s not that Lockup is hard to teach, but there are a lot of moving parts to explain to everyone. When everyone takes in information differently, it is a challenge.
But by the third round everyone had a handle on the game, and it went down well. Expect a formal review in the next couple of weeks now I have played with more people.
Tetris 99 – Switch
Of course I logged in for a couple of roudns of Tetris 99 this week. There was one night I was absolutely wrecked, and Tetris 99 is a great way to clear my mind.
The new additions have been great, and the addition of the daily challenges gives me something to aim for. But.
I have found during the last weeks I have been logging in less and less. It’s no fault of Tetris, it’s still great and the new 2.0 additions have been challenging. It’s just I have so many other games I want to try that it seems to be knocked back a lot.
Still all in all, Tetris 99 is still a fun diversion for me 🙂
PS4 Troubleshooting and reinstallation
Now I know what you are thinking – that’s not a game! But bear with me for a minute.
Sunday afternoon, I was too sore and too tired to jump back into Astral Chain. I was a bit too tired for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I had a chance to sit on the couch and play a game with Rabbit next to me, and I thought ‘Now I can play Pheonix Wright!’
Well, no I couldn’t. What started wtih the controllers being unable to correct ended up with a complete reinstallation of the PS4, so no gaming Sunday afternoon after all.
The thing is, because of the way the PlayStation site is setup, it took me 3 goes to find the correct files – and another two to get the reinstalltion file in the right folder!
So I have chalked up the experience of reinstalling the PS4 software after what I am guessing was a bad update as a game. A game with a bad manual :p
