This past week has been a strange one, and not much progress on my game challenge has been made. I’ve been in a big mood to catch up on horror movies, and in the past week, I’ve seen six or so that I hadn’t seen before. This week I hope to watch a handful more, including: Martyrs, The Boy, Neighbor, Goodnight Mommy, The Objective, Treehouse, Twixt, and We Are Still Here. That’s quite the lineup and I’m excited to finally see all of them.
I didn’t play much of anything this weekend, and what I did play was Destiny. No, I wasn’t having the best time, and no, the RNG has not improved for me. I did the Nightfall on my hunter and, for the second week in a row, everyone else got items that helped them level up and I got…three of coins.
I wasn’t amused.
I may have reached rank 5 in Iron Banner on Friday, but I have yet to receive much of anything that will help me level.
On Saturday I went to maybe the most b*tchin’ wedding I’ve ever been to (the groom walked down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme, the bride to Careless Whisper), which took place at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Between the ceremony and the vows, the guests were free to walk around the aquarium, and I spent a significant amount of time with the jellyfish and the otters. Prior to leaving for the aquarium, I reminded myself to boot up Pokemon Go once I got there to see if I could find any water types since I’d be so close to the water.
I totally forgot.
I got to see real life water types, instead!
I had super wanted to start in on Mafia III this weekend, and I just didn’t have the time. I can’t wait to see the world of New Bordeaux. Perhaps today I will get the chance.
I also downloaded the demo for Outlast 2, and I’m quite looking forward to trying it out.
Even though I’ve had a miserable time in Destiny with the Iron Banner, I’m still trying to get leveled up for easier raiding, and it seems the banner has the chance to pay out faster than anything else. Someone I frequently play with has managed to break 380 while I am still right around 370. It makes me want to throw something imaginary, but I know that’s just how the RNG works.
It’s just hard when it works for those around me and not me.
And, on top of all this, Tuesday brings several new releases including Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4. Yes, I played it already on Xbox One, but I never played the DLC and I always wanted to. I can already tell I’d like to do that on PS4. It’s bad enough my pile of shame of games is a zillion deep, I now find myself drawn to games I’ve already played!
Of course, I’ve played an awful lot of Destiny, and I’m still drawn to play that on a regular basis, so go figure.
So, in a familiar state, I find myself hopefully looking forward to this burgeoning week of gaming. Maybe this is the week I finally get it together and become super efficient; who knows?
What are you playing this week? Any new releases you are looking forward to? Are you getting PSVR on launch day?
