Dude’s Chronicles 10-24-2019: And… Stuff

It was another week of work. It was another week of dealing. I was anther week. What did you do to handle it?

Entertainment

  • Football – Had some other things going on so all I could fit in was the American football, both college and professional. No movies, no shows, just football and Giant Bomb stuff along with some Twitch.

Games

  • Destiny 2 – I keep playing it but I’m trying to wind up as much stuff as I can before The Outer Worlds releases. There may be times when I come back to the game but I just don’t feel that it will be my main game moving forward. I finished the quest line to get the exotic bow not realizing it went in the heavy slot and not the special. Not that that is a problem just that I was kind of bummed out by it because that is not what I expected since all my other bows go in the special slot. This is what I get for not following the meta of Destiny 2 more closely but this is also what tells me I don’t need to make this my main game.
  • Life is Strange 2: Episode 4 – This has been out for a while but I didn’t have the chance to play it until now. Very sorry that I waited and very sorry that they are dragging this game out. I loved this episode and how hard the turns were in it but I also feel like this game should be over. Please take your time if the payoff is worth it but this speaks to why I don’ t like episodic games… I’m too impatient for a good thing.

News

  • Stadia wifi – Apparently Stadia won’t actually connect to Google’s data centers via wifi at launch. The idea that the direct connection would be the fastest experience seemed to make sense but now that Google says you have to have Chromecast Ultra instead it seems like a confirmation that this is either an alpha or beta period and that the service is ‘not ready for primetime’ yet. For what it cost to be a founder and see this early period I don’t feel that it is worth it but others may see it differently.
  • Fallout 76 Private Servers – For the low, low price of $99 per year you and your friends can have your very own private Fallout 76 server. The only thing that baffles me more than the audacity of Bethesda to charge this much for this is that people are still playing this game. Oh, plus it sounds like they are broken.
  • Delays!!! – Not only did The Last of Us Part II get delayed, so did three Ubisoft games. That makes February a bit lighter for releases but what about spring? I wasn’t excited about any of these games any way and I hope that these delays are just to make them better and add polish. TLOU2 had stated it would not launch with multiplayer and if this delay is just to add that mode I will be disheartened.

Closing Arguments

Plans? No, I don’t have plans for the weekend. I’ll try to kick back as much as I can. As I said, The Outer Worlds is my next game on my hit list and I hope to put as much time into it as possible outside of my football watching schedule. We’ll see how it goes.

Thanks for stopping by, please come again.

  1. This is why I never buy into episodic games until the season is finished. I’m too impatient and I’m dumb as shit, so I never remember what’s going on. Is Life is Strange 2 over yet?
