The weekend is for dressing up in colorful spandex outfits and fighting crime alongside your besties. Failing that, you could probably just play a video game with the same premise.


Yeah, I plan on digging into the Switch-exclusive DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power, the game based on DC Comics’ groundbreaking girl-positive superhero cartoon and toy line. The cartoon, which launches its second season this Sunday, is basically My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic with iconic DC heroes instead of horses with butt stamps. It’s good stuff.

The new game, launching today, places players in the booties of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, as well as villains like Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Star Sapphire. These characters beat-up baddies, explore Metropolis, and use in-game currency to restore run-down portions of the city. Noble endeavors indeed.

So yes, I shall be getting my cape on this weekend. What will you be playing?

Downloaded Warhammer 40K Combat Cards on my phone last night for some reason. Probably because I was bored and it was at the forefront of my mind after the latest GW update. It’s... definitely a mobile game. I managed to cobble together something out of the “free” cards that trolls the shit out of people but still win at a decent clip, so we’ll see how long that lasts. Although fuck the devs for just unleashing everybody into a single competition pool and letting the “pay2win” choads steamroll new players.

Might try out Balan Wonderworld this weekend, just to see how mediocre it actually is.

Got confirmation yesterday that the company is going to completely ignore the past year and never again acknowledge work-from-home as a viable working solution, so I’m updating my resume. Weird how the number of people quitting has spike in the past month. Wonder what the cause could be? /s
