Congratulations, we are halfway through the holiday weekend. Or more accurately, we’re smack dab in the middle of two holidays: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here in the States, Thanksgiving weekend used to be about eating a feast with the family while watching football. We still stuff our faces with enough food to last a week, but now we do it while also planning our attack on various places of business. I’m not judging here. I coordinated several successful missions on more than one target … er, I mean Target and Amazon. I’m currently waiting for Prime shipping to deliver my spoils of war! Victory!
If you too fell into the trap of commercialism this weekend, I hope you’re not already regretting it. If you are, may I suggest losing yourself in a good video game? It works for me.
After a grueling week of Black Friday (yes, it is now an entire week-long event here in Germany) I am exhausted and I despise the human race. The carnage I saw… you weren’t there, man. You weren’t there!
To alleviate the Black Friday Week-induced PTSD, I’ll be playing some of the new games I got this week, as well as working on some overdue reviews. I’ve still got The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets to get through, though thankfully it’s a short game so that can probably be done in one sitting on PSVR. I also picked up Insomniac Games’ Edge of Nowhere for Oculus, so I’ll be giving that a run with Oculus Quest and Oculus Link. Aside from that, I’ve got a few flat games to be finishing up, like Terminator Resistance. I’ve also got Big Pharma to make a start on. It’s going to be a busy weekend.
This holiday weekend still has me crawling around my basement floor with the Quest strapped to my head, avoiding the bad guys in Espire 1. I’m also looking forward to testing out the Oculus Link when my new VR gaming computer arrives on Monday! That means I need to finish up all of my outstanding reviews( 3 and counting) before then.
Did you make a killing on one of the many Black Friday gaming sales this weekend? Did you descend on your local Wal Mart like the zombies from World War Z? Are you playing anything great we need to know about? Let us know what you got going on in the comments below.
