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

Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!

Brad is still out and miss him. Let’s all wish him well.

Hopefully the holiday was good for all. It was way too hot in my part of the world to do much. It was probably above 90 by noon. I stayed indoors all day and listened to the fireworks since I didn’t even try to go outside to see them.

I finished the game! XCOM 2 is finally in the finished pile! It was a long, arduous journey but I made it.  There were at least three separate occasions when I thought the game was over, expected to see the final cutscene, only to have it throw more at me to do. The final mission was likely the most stressful part of the game. No spoilers but if you get towards the end, make sure all your best soldiers are healed and available, just saying.

The War of the Chosen DLC was on sale in the PlayStation store and I purchased it. I will not be playing it for some time, however. That last mission took a lot out of my mental capacity as far as gaming goes and I’d like to play something different before diving into another play-through.

At about two hours long, this game was a nice little introduction to what is coming in Life is Strange 2. It is much like the other Life is Strange games not only with its graphics and controls but also the story. Since it is so short I won’t go into any details but would encourage anyone to play it. After all, it is very short and free.

What better way to step away from XCOM 2 than to play a Call of Duty campaign, right? I figured these two games will be nothing like each other and so far I’m right. I’ve never played CoD BLOPS since the original was first released and the third game is currently free on PSPlus so somehow my warped mind put together that I should pull my PS3 out of storage and play BLOPS 2. Yeah, I don’t get it either but that’s what I’m doing.

What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend?
