So after a whirlwind week of working three 15 hour days Tuesday through Thursday, I nearly slept through Halloween. I woke up around one in the afternoon and then spent about four hours playing Payday 2 with ShyYoungBrony. After he turned in I just kinda zoned out to Vinny playing OoT Master Quest before finally addressing the hour and half's worth of Drunk Mario Party footage that's been sitting on my hard drive since July. Long story short, I am a bit of a verbally aggressive drunk. Probably won't be having as much as I did then ever again.
Saturday, Shy and I played even more Payday 2, and after completing a Big Bank Heist and a Free Hoxton heist on Normal and Hard respectively with just the 2 of us and the AI we were feeling pretty good about ourselves. (Even if someone WHO SHALL REMAIN UNNAMED almost blew the big bank by going after a single bag the cops had managed to get to the other end of the map in the final stretch.)
Sunday, Jon and I decided to knock the rust off our Mass Effect 3 skills in preparation for N7 day this Friday. We put in a few hours before swapping over to Dead Space 3 for a while. That took significantly more warm up time. At this point, ME3 is pretty much second nature to me. Even though I hadn't touched it in months, I picked it up and played it like it had been no time at all. Dead Space, not so much. We settled in relatively quickly though and our groove of acting like total morons was found again. I noticed something kinda funny though. Whenever a horde attacked we would always end up in the same positions by the end, Jon stomping wildly at necros I'd knocked over with my ground pound secondary thing, and me holding a slasher arm waiting for something to impale. And then we'd both stomp wildly for loot drops. Because Dead Space.
Yesterday, Watch Dogs came in the mail from GameFly. So far i'm enjoying it. Maybe it's because I like to research as little as possible about a game beforehand so I don't set unrealistic expectations, but having successfully ignored everything about the game since it's E3 announcement, I'm enjoying it quite a lot. My only real complaint is that gun-play can get quite a bit frustrating at times, as often is the case when a game tantalizes you with fun stealth then forces you into open combat. Oh, also, almost all of the radio music is crap, but that's an opinion so meh. I'm digging the actual soundtrack.
So yeah, that was my weekend. The offer to join forces for N7 day is still open, I've had an astronomical 0 takers so far so yeah, slots open and all.
See yall around,
