Final evening, I died to 2 common bears in Darkshore which meant my degree 15 Druid needed to get thrown into the blender. An absolute nightmare. I am having a good time!

Are you actually shocked that I’m going to be shuffling round London, nostril in my telephone, making an attempt desperately to seek out out the place the subsequent Rathian I have to take down is with the intention to degree up my foolish little booties? I’m a large Monster Hunter fan, and cramming the promise of the sport down right into a tiny little undertaking that matches neatly within the palm of my hand was solely ever going to be a significant issue for me.

It’s an eye-melting 33 levels Celcius (91.4°F) in London proper now, so – after I take my canine out when it’s good and funky within the morning – I’ll doubtless be floating from bar to bar, cooling myself down with native East London pints, looking no matter poor creatures had the dangerous sense to get in my method that day.

In my everlasting quest to start a brand new 100-hour RPG each week that I will by no means end, I’ve determined to present the storied Yakuza sequence a attempt.

The combating is clunky however the vibes are unmatched. I like the digital tourism facet of Yakuza Kiwami’s stylised recreation of the Kabukicho purple gentle district in Tokyo and can by no means stop to be tickled by the over-the-top antics on display.

It does really feel just a little bit like beginning a brand new TV sequence that has seven seasons already aired – if I like this one, that is like 800 hours of extra sport to play, proper – however I am not maining this too critically and have simply been enjoying it half-hour at a time right here and there.

I’ve at all times been jealous of individuals with a Languages Mind. My spouse speaks fluent German, and Dutch, and is making go of Japanese in the mean time. Once we final travelled overseas, to Portugal, she spent a few weeks simply absorbing language books with the intention to get some fundamental phrases collectively. I am fascinated by it. My mind solely has one gear: English. Regardless of years spent making an attempt to be taught Welsh and Italian (the languages I actually ought to have the ability to communicate, given my heritage), non-English phrases simply get filtered out. My mind has nowhere to retailer them, it appears, in amongst the reams of ineffective trivia about Star Trek and the Roman Empire.

So Chants of Sennarr is vastly interesting to me in a lot the identical method as Heaven’s Vault was. The gamified model of deciphering historical tongues, matching phrases to actions and symbols, has a satisfying ping of consumer suggestions if you encounter the correct reply, and turns the method of “studying” languages into one thing my idiotic monolingual mind can get its head round.

I’ll transfer my Xbox into my lounge and doubtless proceed enjoying Starfield, which is an alright sport thus far. There are quests and different moments that I’ve discovered actually enjoyable, however there are actually extra quests and moments that I’ve discovered to be vapid and uninteresting. I am hoping I would heat to it some extra over time, however I’ve not received my hopes up. It simply is not actually my sort of sport thus far, and that is okay. I’ve given it probability.

After I’m not planet-hopping for one thing attention-grabbing to do, I am most likely going to maintain watching shitty motion films, or sleeping to keep away from feeling the worst of the warmth. Additionally, for anybody who was invested, I did discover some banana milk final weekend. It was nice.

As promised, I cleared my dance card of different emotional teen dramas in time for the discharge of Goodbye Volcano Excessive, so now it is time to really play it!

It is solely about six hours lengthy, so excellent for a weekend gaming session. Contemplating that this late-summer heatwave within the UK is because of final into early subsequent week, the prospect of assembly a fiery dying is an particularly relatable one proper now, so I am certain the characters and I’ll get on like a planet on hearth.

I haven’t got large plans this weekend as a result of I’m nonetheless making an attempt to recuperate from a Weapons N Roses live performance I attended earlier this week. No, I did not get soused. I had a blistering migraine the day of the present, and it is caught round for a couple of days and I have never been capable of sleep a lot due to it. However, the additional ache from the loud music was price it: GNR placed on one helluva present, so I remorse NOTHING. I am even considering taking a flight to Houston to see them once more later this month. I do know that sounds nuts, however: the present is on my birthday, Alice in Chains (eff yeah!) is opening for them, and Houston has a enjoyable vibe. You solely reside as soon as, and I’m uninterested in by no means leaving the state. Just like the tune says: “In the long run, we’re simply mud n’ bones” – so why not reside just a little? Proper? Proper!

So, apart from nursing myself again to semi-health, I plan on primarily resting over the weekend. If I do play any video games, it will not be one which makes me must suppose. I’ll most likely hearth up LOTRO on the laptop computer and redecorate my many homes, clear the beauty clothes litter out of my financial institution and chests (I want to try this in actual life too!), and take a look at some issues I’ll have missed not too long ago. After all, I might hearth up the Xbox One and play some Skyrim as it isn’t put in on the laptop computer. I have to do a little bit of cleansing out of the chests, drawers, cabinets, tables, and so on. in that sport too. Do not choose me. There may be nothing unsuitable with wanting swish whereas slaughtering dangerous guys and monsters, proper?
