Dude’s Chronicles 9-21-2017: The Heat is Hot

It is September and we are in the midst of a heatwave. In this month alone we have probably had more 80+ degree days than in July and August combined.

Entertainment

  • Football – Soooo many good games yet sooooo many bad teams.  Just like in real life, there are the haves and the have-nots. The distance between the two are immeasurable.
  • GiantBomb – Watched bunch of their shows but the most weird one was just seeing the Fortnite Battle Royale mode. It looked like parts of it were straight out lifted from BattleGrounds. The art style made the game mode just look strange after watching so much BattleGrounds and the mechanics only stretched that further.

Games

  • Destiny 2 – The review is up even though I haven’t done a raid or a Nightfall strike. There just isn’t that driving need to do either of those events. I waited some time until doing them in the original and I don’t know that I even want to do them at all. There is still a desire to play but just in short hour-ish chunks and those higher level activities will likely take longer than that.

News

  • Steam reviews now have a graph – In an attempt to weigh reviews when there are bombs Steam now shows a graph of the number of reviews over time. Now if only people will pay attention to it and mind what it means is yet to be seen.
  • Fortnite crossplay – It was “accidental” that Xbox and PS4 players were matched against each other.
  • RIP Battleborn – Combine a mediocre game and let it get confused with Overwatch to see a game that never had a chance. Apparently the game will still be playable but updates will soon cease.

Closing Arguments

My pal Brad was kind enough to mention my Destiny 2 review over on his site. Go check out his post and all of the other links he put in it. Thanks again Brad, you’re an alright guy.

Football and games are going to be a nice change of pace after busting hump all week at work.  Ten hour days every day all week suck, that’s all I’ll say.
