No no, don’t get excited from that image; I still haven’t played anything.
There is hope!
Last week, as I was on the couch in agony, I had a revelation about what might be the issue and, while I will have to wait another week to verify this with my doctor in person, I think I’m on to something. I’ve been testing a theory for four days now, and I’m seeing the faintest hint of feeling better.
That hint gives me hope.
So, while I am noticing a teensy improvement, I still haven’t felt well enough to play anything. Yes, that’s a bummer, but I will take what I can get at this point. Hopefully I continue to improve and this week allows me to finally make some progress in any of the following games: Titanfall 2, Resident Evil 7, and Dishonored 2.
My partner had heard me lamenting about wanting to play Nioh, but we didn’t have it and I had mentioned it was currently sold out on Amazon and none of our local GameStops had a copy. I ended up checking on Friday to see if the GameStop closest to us had been restocked and sure enough, they had a copy and he went to pick it up for me! I’m not sure how good I will be at the game, but I can’t pass up the chance to play as samurai Geralt. I’m looking forward to dabbling in this when I am feeling better.
I am also starting to get a tiny bit excited about Horizon: Zero Dawn. I hadn’t been excited for it and I’ve never been a huge fan of the Killzone series (particularly Shadow Fall), but I had an open mind about Horizon. The more I’ve been hearing about it this past week, the most interested I find myself in Far Cry Robodinos. I know the review embargo is up today and I will be anxious to read the early reviews. I have it on pre-order, but with how far behind I am at the moment, I don’t know when I will even be able to play it.
Being sick for over a month really puts a damper on, well, everything. Also it’s uncomfortable.
So there you have it: a super minor improvement in health and no progress in games.
I’ll take what I can get.
What have you been playing? What will you be playing this week? Are you excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn?
This year is an anomaly to have so many heavy hitting games stacked in the early months. And who knows what the rest of the year will end up looking like?
What are you hoping gets announced/released this year?
