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

Brad is out of town but games will still be played. Sorry Brad but we hope you are having a good time whilst we continue gaming.

This weekend is Mother’s Day. Don’t say I didn’t remind you about it. Get your mother something nice. Maybe do something she has been asking you to do but you keep putting of. If you live to far away send flowers or just pick of the phone and give her a call. She’d love to her from you. My siblings and I decided since our mother really didn’t want anything we would cook her a nice meal.  We’ll be making prime rib accompanied by horseradish carrots. Don’t tell her about it though, it’s a surprise. If I hear that she finds out about I’m coming right back here and straightening all of you out for spilling the beans.

As for games, I am still into God of War. I’ve finished the campaign and most of the realm tears. For some reason I am now going through all of the Valkyries. Even after turning the difficulty down I am struggling. Maybe age is a upon me and my reaction time is lacking, or I just suck at playing games(highly possible) but some of these fights are ridiculous. When I had it on regular difficulty, I kid you not, one of the fights was over in about 15 seconds and it was not because I won. The Valkyrie hit me with one attack, jumped into the air, landed on me, then stomped me to death. It wasn’t pretty.

But speaking of pretty, God of War added a photo mode. If you haven’t played or even seen this game, let me tell you, it’s beautiful looking. I don’t know how they shipped this game without a photo mode but I’m glad they added it and I look forward to seeing what people do with it. Horizon Zero Dawn also went through this progression and people were able to be creative with what they photoed.

Final reminder…. It’s Mother’s Day weekend. Put down the game, for just a bit, and do something nice for your mom.

What will you be playing???

  1. While I work every weekend I do hope to get some time in with Splatoon 2’s Splatfest. Monday is a dreaded day at the Doctor’s, so I hope to get in some game time Sunday night.

  2. Thanks for holding down the fort! I brought my Vita along but haven’t had any time to play anything. My trip is being cut short, though, so I’m headed back home tomorrow after Mother’s Day lunch with mom and my grandmother. Not looking forward to I-95 in Virginia. Took me nearly 12 hours to get to MD from SC when it’s normally an 8-hour drive. I hate Virginia.

    Looking forward to starting God of War when I get back, though!
