Oh look: it’s me (still) playing hide and seek with my immune system. Guess who’s winning?
Hint: it’s not me.
Friends, I am awash in a sea of amazing new games and I haven’t played anything at all. I didn’t even get to play any of the Overwatch event, and I’d had such high hopes that I’d be able to play at least a teeny part of it.
At least two games released in the past ten days (both of which I have ready access to) clock in around a very manageable three hours (or, so I’ve read), and I’ve yet to play either.
If I can’t play even a couple of matches of Overwatch here and there, I’m really screwed.
Yesterday, my lovely special edition of Little Nightmares arrived (yes, on a Sunday!), and it’s one of the more interesting editions of a game I’ve seen. It not only came with a little statue of the main character (Six, seen above in her yellow slicker), but a soundtrack and a sheet of stickers, as well. That’s my idea of a solid edition!
Now if I could just summon the energy to play it.
I’m super hoping to finally play What Remains of Edith Finch, as I’ve yet to start that either. This year has already been one of the best ever for game releases, and go freaking figure that I’ve been sick since January! It’s getting tedious. I’m sick of being sick. I’m sure people are sick of hearing about it (I’m sorry). I just keep moving forward in hopes that one day, I just might be able to function like a normal human being.
High hopes, for sure.
I was already feeling hopelessly behind when I realized Prey releases this week. Good gravy. When I finally am at a place where I feel like I can play games again, where will I even start? There are so many options of both shorter and longer experiences. It’s overwhelming.
I downloaded the demo for Prey and (once again) thought there was a chance I’d be able to play it to get a feel for the actual release. As you have likely concluded, I didn’t get to it. But the more I hear it compared to BioShock in space, the more intrigued I am. I do wish I had been able to try it for myself before the game launches on Friday, as I’m just now reminded, since this is a Bethesda release, there will no longer be early review copies out in the wild. It will likely be a while before we see any reviews floating around. I do wonder how it will score.
So, while I’d love to say this is the week things change, I have a sinking feeling it may be more of the same. As always, I’m hoping for the best anyway.
What will you be playing this week? Will you be getting Prey?
And now, I am going to go to bed. Finally. I’ve been resting off and on like crazy this past week. I expect I will see the rest of today come noontime.
