Summer Weekend Gaming

It’s been quite around these parts for the past couple months, but gaming has still been going strong but the age old question exists — if I gamed but didn’t blog about it, did it really happen?

With 2019 being the Year of Finishing games, things were going strong earlier in the year — Resident Evil 2 REmake was finished (twice!), Destiny 2 was “finished” (I didn’t really have a clue what was happening with the story, but I definitely finished off a boss at the end, so I think I finished it?), and The Division 2 was completed.

Now, with the Summer in full swing, gaming has slowed a bit. We still partake, but recently they have been small servings of old, reliable comfort food — Dota 2, mostly. But it’s time to shake things up. Today is one of our “free Fridays” meaning more freetime for me. I have a lot on my plate — I recently got back into the Sports game with a cheap pick-up of NBA 2k19 for the Switch (for 3!! bucks) and The Golf Club 2019 featuring PGA Tour (thanks, Games with Gold!) and the backlog on Steam is ever present in the back of my mind. I have some DLC I could partake in with The Division 2 but this weekend I may give something in my Steam Library a try. Maybe finish Dead Rising, maybe go back to Kenshi or maybe even try something new, like Tokyo 42.

And then, of course, is the Summer Steam Sale. We could get something new (like, say They are Billions or Below) and start the vicious cycle over again. I may need professional help.

What are you playing this weekend?
