I should be clear from the get go: this post has nothing to do with Kirby, but I came across the above image and it was too adorable not to use. So there he is.
I skipped last week’s Status Report due to the craziness that is E3, but now it’s back, in the calm after the storm.
This past week and weekend, I was in rough shape, health-wise. Some extreme (and prolonged) nausea (and some various other nasties) plagued me over the weekend and all I could do was sleep. Well, when I could actually sleep that is. So it’s been a bit of a struggle.
I was able to write about each of the pressers of E3 as well as the Destiny 2 beta, and I was also able to play some Destiny over the past week, so I’d call that a win. Physically I may be a mess, but I’m working on being productive again.
I’ve been chipping away at my Age of Triumph book in Destiny, and, honestly, I have no idea why. The benefit of completing it is to obtain the Age of Triumph t-shirt, however I’m not super keen on the design, so at this point, it’s an arbitrary goal. But, at the end of the day, I just love playing Destiny, and I’m glad to be playing anything. Again, I’d call this a win.
I’ve also been dabbling here and there with Friday the 13th (the game). I’m not good at it, and I seem to have been on the end of some incredibly unlucky spawn points, but it’s still a fun game, and I’m looking forward to playing more of it as time permits. I’ve been playing it with a friend, and I’ve been able to spectate some hilarious moments (after I’ve died again, of course), such as he and Jason merrily playing ring around the couch for a hilariously long time.
This week, I’m hoping to dive in to a new game. Up there on my list: Wolfenstein: The New Order, Tales From the Borderlands, Prey, and Far Cry: Primal. I have no idea why those are the ones on my mind, but they are and I’m hoping to start making some real progress with gaming again. As much as I love Destiny, I’m sure everyone would like to read about more than just my ridiculous affection for the game.
Just know: I’m working on it.
I think I’m leaning towards Prey as it’s newer and I’m so behind with 2017 releases already, it would be good to start the catch up process there. But then I start thinking about all the smaller games that have released this year, and I wonder if I should knock some of those out first.
What a delicious problem to have. A spoil of digital riches and I don’t know where to start. It’s like a buffet of games and I’m a ravenous, ravenous water horse.
With that I ask: what will you be playing this week? Are there any new releases you are looking forward to?
