Hey everybody! I’m sorry I’ve been a little off the grid lately. This past month I went to Hawaii, which was amazing, and where I got engaged. (I’m totally leveling up my life!) So I was away from my keyboard and in kind of a dreamy haze for awhile.
But now I’m back at home, getting into the groove of work again, and ready to blog! This blog is definitely a place I will always return to, because writing here has been such a huge hobby of mine. Besides enjoying it, it’s also a way to connect with other people who like the same nerdy stuff as I do!
So, here is my brief life update… =)
This was probably my most anticipated game of the year. I loved Horizon Zero Dawn, I had fun with Mass Effect: Andromeda… but nothing quite compares to the fun I have playing Destiny. It’s especially enjoyable because it’s such a social experience. Sometimes I don’t like that — I don’t like online competition, and I’m big on story-driven experiences rather than multiplayer games — but with Destiny, I jumped in with my partner and got completely addicted. With Destiny 2 so far, I’ve been taking my time more. I play a few hours here and there, savoring the story, the sense of humor, and the gorgeous graphics this game showcases. I’ll post a review when I’m done with the main story, but for now, I’ll just leave you with this picture of my new Warlock (who looks a lot like my former Warlock).
Time of Contempt (The Witcher series)
Some of you may know that I’ve been reading The Witcher books the past few weeks. I just finished Time of Contempt, which is the fourth book in the series (and technically the second novel). To be honest, I struggled to stay invested in this one. There are some memorable scenes — notably the mages banquet full of gossip and intrigue, and at the end of the book, a unicorn shows up — but it’s not as action-packed as other books in the series. I’m interested to see where the story goes, but the politics aren’t holding my attention anymore as much as just hearing about the adventures of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri. (For those who love romance like me, at least this book does have some rekindling of that!)
Night in the Woods
This is one of the funniest video games I’ve ever played. Set in a little town full of woodland creatures, it’s snarky, silly, and surprisingly relatable. I highly recommend it to anybody who likes narrative games, and I’m sure I’ll be posting more about it after I finish it.
What have you all been up to this month? I’d love to hear what everybody has been playing and doing lately!
