Okay, so I’m still sick, but things are getting figured out.
Quick health update: I saw my doctor and, after a slew of labs, she has come to the conclusion that I at least have a severe case of bronchitis. That’s the good news. The bad news is that she thinks there is also something else at work, and I have to head back today for more tests to see if the other issues can be figured out.
Unfortunately, the meds she gave me haven’t done much. Hopefully today will bring more answers.
Yesterday I literally slept all day. I was in bed from the time it was light out to around 9pm. I am constantly exhausted.
Anyway, as you have likely suspected, I haven’t played anything. Still. Over a month and a half of video gamelessness.
Color me sad.
So! I decided something! I’m going to force myself to play something today! If it makes me feel markedly worse, I will stop, but if I can stomach it, I’m gosh darn going to try.
Also, a couple of notes about planned content:
At the beginning of the year I talked about offering up at least one review each month. I still intend to stick to that, but, last month, I couldn’t make good on that promise due to not playing anything to completion. I hope to pick back up with reviews this month, and I apologize for the omission from last month. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable writing a review for a game I hadn’t seen from start to finish.
The other bit of content that will be pushed off for at least another month is streaming. I’d planned on streaming at least once a week beginning this month, however, without knowing how I will feel for the foreseeable future, I don’t want to plan on anything I can’t follow through on. As soon as I see real improvement, I will set the schedule accordingly.
So there you have it. I’m sorry for the delay, but I would never have thought I’d be so sick for so long. Hopefully the additional tests today get this situation locked down.
As if 2017 didn’t already have a plethora of huge releases, this week sees another heavy hitter: NieR: Automata. I’m very excited to dive in as I was always curious about the original NieR (and even ended up getting a copy for PS3), but never took the plunge. The more I see about it, the more it piques my interest.
Also, the more I hear about Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the more I want to play it, so I may be seeking out a copy for Wii U. I know, just what I need: another game to add to my backlog. But there it is. I just love when people get excited about games. It’s hard not to be excited, too.
So with that I ask: what will you be playing this week? Are you picking up any new releases like NieR or Ghost Recon: Wildlands? Or will you be tackling the ol’ backlog?
Please regale me with your plans. I am living vicarious through you as I remain plastered to my couch. Here’s hoping my plan to force myself to play something works out!
