The title of today’s piece is in reference to my attention span and ability to focus at the moment. It’s been a strange and hectic week and, as much as I’d love to have something far more interesting to present you with, I don’t! This is it! Some days/weeks the topics are easier to come by, and this week they are at the other end of that spectrum.
I have learned to roll with it. Just not like that Steve Winwood song (which I greatly dislike due to having to dance to it in terrible outfits in jazz dance class as a child).
I thought I’d look ahead to the weekend and what games I’d like to play. I have been thinking a lot about Super Mario Bros. 2 lately, one of my favorite games of all time, and realized I haven’t played it in a really long time. I think this weekend I’m going to hook up the NES Classic and play it in the highest resolution I never could have dreamed of. That sounds like a real nice time.
I’m also hoping to finish Far Cry: Primal. It’s my least favorite Far Cry, but I’m still enjoying the Far Cry aspects of it (e.g.: liberating outposts). It’s really just satiating me until Far Cry 5 releases next month (!!!).
I’m ALSO hoping to finally play some Crossing Souls. I was so excited for it to release, and I’ve yet to even start it.
And I expect there will be a return to Dying Light this weekend, as my partner started in on the game and I enjoy popping in to take out masses of zombies and turning them all into easy-to-collect crack bags of loot. Also, any chance I get to play with him is a good time.
So, while I know today’s piece is short, I’m hoping you’ll forgive me and shine this one on.
With that I ask: what are you hoping to play this weekend? Any new releases on the horizon you are particularly excited about?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in Oros wrapping things up. Cheers, friends!

P.S. I found this art by GoshaDole while looking for an image of Super Mario Bros. 2 and I really liked it. TUUURRRRRRRRRNIPS!!!
