It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! What are You Playing?

Brad is out of town enjoying a well deserved vacation, so I’ll cover this for him.

It’s a long weekend for me, took Friday off work since I’m on-call for work on the Fourth of July. To me that is a good excuse to stay home and play video games. To that point I bought The Last of Us: Left Behind, Knack, and Arcade Series from the PS Store sale. All that set me back was about $13. For some reason Knack was the most expensive at $5. I started playing it and boy oh boy is that game bad. Makes me wonder how they justify a second game of this. But I’ll keep playing it, maybe it gets better… maybe it gets worse.

I wasn’t done buying games for some reason. After waking up around noon, I drove to the local GameStop to buy more. That trip got me  Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Collection, Far Cry 4, and The Last of Us Remastered. I played Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One, so I didn’t really need to play it but I really enjoyed it so some how in my maniac sense of a mind it was justified. The Last of Us is one of those games that I disagree with people on how good it actually is because I think it’s bad. After all these years I’ll give it another chance. Somehow having bought the DLC, Left Behind, justifies buying the full game even though I already own it and played through it on the PS3. That means that the only game I bought at the store that I haven’t already played is Far Cry 4. I don’t even try to justify this one since I got burned out on Far Cry 3 and haven’t touched the game since.

O’well… I’ll have time on my hands on the holiday and next weekend. That gives me plenty of reason, or excuse depending on how you look at it, to spend lots of time on these games.

What will you be playing???

  1. Thanks for taking over in my absence! I played the first free chapter of The Room on iOS, but it didn’t give me much to do before it wanted me to pay for the full game. I liked what I played, though, and it’s only $1. So maybe.

    I loved The Last of Us, but never played it on ps3 since I was mostly on 360 last gen. I saw Gamestop was having a B2G1 sale on used games and considered Yakuza 0, Nioh, and something else… but already spent over $100 during the Steam sale.

    • Any time bud!

      The PS sale and the GameStop sale got me at a weak moment. I’m in between games and nothing new is coming out soon that I’m into. I could have played all the freebies I have from PS+ and Games with Gold but I spent money on games instead. Never said I was a smart man.

  2. I’ll be getting in some more time with the DLC for Redout. Possibly some Insurgency with friends who just discovered it, Carmageddon Max Damage, and if I have time, trying to delve a bit more into BOTW as I still have a lot of that to go.

    I’ll be at ConnectiCon in Hartford 7/6th, 8th, 9th So I also have to go through the costume archives, as I never found time this year to buy or design a cosplay. Or I’ll have to come up with something quick, and easy to pull off. But as always, I’ll be taking photos, and notes for the recap. Even more excited for RetroWorldExpo in October. Since both cons are at the Hartford Convention Center, that also means two visits to City Steam. I don’t get out to that part of my State that often so it’s a rare treat getting fresh Naughty Nurse, and awesome food. Woooooooo!
