What are You Playing this Weekend?
This weekend I’m looking forward to having some time to relax and invest in some games. This week was marred by food poisoning (or something unpleasant…) and a ton of client work. I’m ready for some R&R.
I’ll be clocking time in Skyrim for Switch, finishing up an Assassin’s Creed 2 play-through with my wife, and perhaps looking at getting We are Billions.
In Skyrim playing as a warrior 1hand block character with a very anti-bow approach. I’ve only ever played the stealth stabby type or the stealthy 1-shot archer builds. While so strong and probably more broken than most, those classes always lacked the “I’m a Nord with a sword and board standing toe-to-toe with a dragon” kind of approach that I feel is really inherent to the Skyrim world.
What’s also cool is that I’m playing this through with my wife watching. It’s her first Elder Scrolls game, so she’s coming to terms with what it means to play an open-world sandbox RPG. I think she understands now that you really can go at things your own pace.
If anyone has advice for the 1h/shield builds, please let me know! I’m looking for build advice and “be sure you do XYZ” in-game kind of stuff. I’ve only ever played through the story once, and a second time just roamed the world without doing much story at all.
Playing through AC2 has been a much better experience than AC1. What a QOL improvement. At the same time, I forgot how the game hadn’t introduced the “crouch and sneak” or “stick to walls” gameplay yet. You still awkwards walk around and try to hide yourself. Really weird. But hey, at least we can aerial and double-assassinate!
We’ll be going through the entire Ezio collection, then moving on to… ugh… AC3. I’m debating if we’ll just skip it entirely in favor of moving on to Black Flag. Would that be robbing her of the complete experience, or saving her from the disaster of AC3?
All week long I’ve seen streamers playing We are Billions. It looks like an RTS resource management and defense type game. Anyone pick it up and think it’s worth grabbing? I’m curious what you think.
What are you guys all playing this weekend?
