Iâ€™ve been meaning to start a weekend feature for some time now. Since I started posting every day â€” By the way Iâ€™m up to 138 days straight â€” I realized thereâ€™s a need for a few regular features. I think this will develop into one.
Since co-founding my own business and joining the ranks of the entrepreneurial work from home types, Iâ€™ve found that I have even less time to really devote heavily to games than I did when I was working 8 hours a day and commuting an hour each way. Itâ€™s that stress of, â€œIf I do it then it wonâ€™t get done,â€ and knowing that my business only grows relative to the effort I directly put into its growth.
So weekends have become really valuable as a time off and time to breath.
That said, tonight we went to the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, tomorrow weâ€™re doing stuff, Monday weâ€™re going to see family, etc. Live has a crazy way of being super active. That said, there are games.
Graev and I have been playing Sea of Thieves. We canâ€™t say much more than that. The Technical Alpha is underway, and if you want to see more on whatâ€™s happening you should check out the Sea of Thieves Reddit. Itâ€™s very… Reddit… but itâ€™s â€˜probablyâ€™ accurate enough to represent the state of affairs. Can I say Iâ€™m having a blast? I donâ€™t know if I can, so I wonâ€™t say it.
We also picked up the Halo Master Chief Collection and plan to play through that then get started on Halo 5. Perhaps before we start playing the MCC weâ€™ll finish up Halo Wars. Weâ€™re debating jumping into a full playthrough in timeline order.
Lastly, weâ€™re playing the Styx games. Iâ€™m currently playing single-player for the first game, and weâ€™re playing the second game concurrently in full co-op. Iâ€™ll be writing up more of my thoughts on both the games soon.
What are you guys playing? Anything fun?
