December Releases

I almost didn’t post this month’s releases, because honestly, there isn’t anything that sets my pants on fire. Ok, PUBG on the Xbox One is a maybe, but the fact that it’s “Game Preview Edition” edition makes me very wary. I’ve successfully avoided Battle Royale hype wave so far (but I did read the book!) so I’m in no hurry to hop on a preview version on a console.

Weekend Gaming Takes a Breath

It’s the first weekend of December. Here at Buttonmashing HQ, the weather hasn’t quite turned cold yet, but we’ll probably still be found nice and cozy indoors while we do a little gaming this weekend.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still taking up the majority of my gaming and I imagine a large chunk of my time this weekend will be spent exploring the vast world of BotW. I recently freed one of the Divine Beasts which puts me at a quarter of the way to my end goal of defeating Calamity Ganon. But everytime I look at all the unexplored regions of my map, I get overwhelmed. It doesn’t feel like I’m 25% of the way there.

I also recently downloaded the Animal Crossing iOS game, Pocket Camp, but haven’t really had a chance to poke around much past the initial introduction to the game, so I plan to spend a little time with Animal Crossing, as well.

Other than that, I’m not sure. I’m toying with the idea of going back to The Division, for old time’s sake. With the game being set around the holiday season, it just feels right.
