Whats going on, everybody? Thought it might be time for an update with what I’m doing here. I’ve just recently moved to Melbourne, Victoria, which is nearly the opposite side of Australia from my hometown of Noosa in Queensland. It’s a big change, going from a smaller coastal town to a very modern European style city, but I’m loving it even if it is currently freezing compared to what I’m used too!
My first priority was to find gainful employment. I think I’ve got a pretty sweet gig lined up, so now I can switch some of my focus back to my writing here (and to PLAYING VIDEO GAMES), and start to look towards the future. The focus will be reviews, as that is the part of my wheelhouse that I’m looking to improve, and seems to be the best way to drive traffic. I’m kind of at a crossroads as to where to start though, as there are a couple of titles I would like to cover. While I will definitely try to cover newer games, there are a few older games that I’m tinkering around with at the moment, and I’d like to cover those too. Here are a few games I’m currently playing and am considering for review:
As I’ve been travelling these past couple of months, I’ve only had handheld consoles to tide me over. Now that I’m home, I can finally catch up on the big console releases that I missed, and the game I’ve been dying to dive into: Persona 5. It was absolutely worth the wait, and I am really enjoying my time with it. I’ve spent about 15 hours with it this week, but I don’t think it will be the game I review next. I want to take my time with it, and Persona games are almost designed to discourage blasting through the critical path. Its a once in a generation type of game, and I want to enjoy it at a leisurely pace.
I’ve been fiddling around with Darkest Dungeon again, and ever since Red Hook released the Radiant update I’ve been thinking about playing it for review. Despite a couple of improvements that sort of make life a little easier, this is still a gruellingly difficult game and will probably require no small amount of effort on my part to see it through to the end. Super fun game though, and I think I’m up for it. Currently playing it on Vita, so I think it will be my off-game that I will play alongside something a little beefier, like…
Dark Souls 3
I love the Dark Souls series, and while I played through Dark Souls 3 at launch, I haven’t touched it since. I think it’s time to return to Lothric, and experience the apparently fantastic DLC that From Software have released. The problem is, I will be playing on PC (with a PS4 controller) and will need to start from scratch. Strangely, I’m looking forward to returning to this dark and gothic world. It’s winter here and the weather is awful, so it just seems kind of appropriate.
And that’s kind of where I’m at, I’ll still be writing opinion pieces in the interim as I plug through the above games. I’ve got some cool handheld related accessories coming in the next couple of days that I might review as well, just to keep exercising that writing muscle. Let me know what you think, and feel free to recommend some titles for review, I’m open to anything!
