This weekend is for finally getting temperatures low enough that we can open the windows without instantly being incinerated, and maybe playing through what I’d say is an old favorite if it hadn’t only come out earlier this year.


It doesn’t feel like Ori and the Will of the Wisps came for PC and Xbox One in March. It was a completely different era, early 2020, with its own distinct mouthfeel (non-cloth-covered). Maybe that’s why I picked up the game’s new Switch version to see how it plays and didn’t put it down for a half-hour. Or maybe Ori is just my gaming sweet spot, and I cannot resist it. Like that one movie you can’t help but watch every time it’s on TV.

Oh well, best get it out of my system before the fall season kicks into full swing. What are you folks playing?

I’ve been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 for the past couple weeks. I’m still on chapter 2 since I’ve become preoccupied with getting all of the missable content before I progress.

One thing I really hate about the game is how easy it is to accidentally shoot an NPC you just want to talk to unless you specifically select fist in the weapon wheel before approaching them.

Also, getting a Perfect Snake Skin is nearly impossible due to how small they are. The first time I got one was through blind luck and the second was because it randomly dropped dead for no reason.
