Let’s drop this pretense about what the weekend is for and get straight to the point. Of course I will be playing the free PlayStation 4 idol rhythm game from Square Enix this weekend. No one needs a post to tell them that. What’s that? It’s called Love Live! School Idol Festival ~after school ACTIVITY~ Wai-Wai! Home Meeting!!? Why am I even here today?

Sure, I’ll be doing Monster Hunter and maybe poking at Balan Wonderworld to see if that got any better following the demo that everyone except for me laughed at. But mostly I’ll be playing *takes a deep breath* Love Live! School Idol Festival ~after school ACTIVITY~ Wai-Wai! Home Meeting!!, the free-to-start version of the popular Japanese arcade game. The base version’s got eight songs to unlock and play, and I hear there might be some paid DLC.

Just a little.

So, what are you people playing this weekend? Does your game have a couple hundred dollars worth of downloadable content, or is it for sensible people?

My physical copy of Hades arrived last Friday, so I’ve been chipping away at it for the past week. Fantastic game, and 100% deserves all the accolades that it has received (and should have received). I don’t like rogue-likes but Hades does so many things to fix the typical “git gud” issues that I’m thoroughly enjoying my time with it. I’m maybe halfway through the amount of runs to finish the story mode? Honestly at this point I’m just picking random boons to try and complete prophecies and/or mix up the gameplay.

I’m on vacation this weekend so I should have plenty of time to chill. Maybe get back into The Outer Worlds once I’ve “completed” Hades, or boot up Saints Row IV if I just want to fuck around nonchalantly.
