Here’s a TV recommendation for you: Deadloch on Amazon Prime. A noir crime comedy set in a small town in Tasmania where traditional culture clashes with artistic newcomers, and there’s murder, and it’s funny, and the characters are so delightful. It’s a bit like Top Of The Lake with jokes. But what are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!
is on vacation !
After reading Michael Molcher’s great book, I Am The Law: How Judge Dredd Predicted Our Future, I have a weird urge to play Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death. Well, the first ten minutes, anyway. Until the vampires arrive. We’ll see after.
As you might expect, it’s more Dave The Diver on the Deck. It keeps adding new things to hunt and new things to see – so far, that’s the big surprise of this year. Otherwise, I’m waiting for Baldur’s Gate 3 so my friends and I can co-op it together and spend years making terrible decisions. Not long to wait now.
The Diablo 4 Season 1 patch may not have been well received, but I’m excited to get back to work regardless. I’ve started a new druid character for the season, and hopefully it will last me until Baldur’s Gate 3 comes out (I’m very very very excited for Baldur’s Gate 3)!
I did a quick viewfinder tour and I want to play more. I thought it was mostly about using its reality photo trickery to just build bridges or bypass doorways, but it keeps surprising me with new applications for snapshot-based reality bending.
I’m going “north” for a friend’s wedding this weekend (the north-south split being the M4 corridor for me), so unfortunately there will be little time to play games. Clive and Torgal will have to sit still for another week…
I caught COVID this week and as a result spent most of it in bed playing The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom. Although my skin has stopped burning and my temperature has dropped to something that will no longer cause my organs to boil in delicious soup, I think I’ll also be spending the weekend in bed playing more Zelda in an attempt to feel more human. Zelda is very good. COVID is not. Bye.
This weekend I have a handful of games to get into. I want to finish Dordogne and Cofee Talk Episode 2 and play some more Sticky Business. I’m also looking forward to starting Misericord: Volume One which is a murder mystery visual novel set in a convent in 1482. Really excited about that one.
I’ve been sick for much of this week and split my time between fever naps and playing Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, and somehow that got me pretty close to the end of the latter. (I refuse to declare an end to naps.) Between that, getting my hands on the new Sims 4 Horse Ranch bundle, and the fact that I’ve finally committed to working my way through the Animal Crossing: New Horizons DLC, I’ve got a pretty good weekend to shrug off lingering pains using beloved games.
But you, dear reader, what are you playing this weekend?
