I feel like this week has been an exceptionally good week for gamers, which has filled me with a sense of deep appreciation for getting into video games in the past few years.
- a new season of Destiny started, which is always extremely exciting. I’m still kind of on burnout-sabbatical from it, but I look forward to every new release. New content is always fun to discover.
- relatedly, a new dungeon in Destiny. I spent a few hours suffering through it tonight and it was an excellent (and frustrating) time. Dungeons/raids in Destiny are, I think, their best content and it is wonderful that we get a new one every season.
- I started playing the demo for Garden Galaxy. I am completely enamoured by it and am very excited for the full game release (next week!!!)
- Supergiant Games announced Hades II. I was watching the stream when the reveal trailer came on and I (internally) YELLED when the Hades riff played. I absolutely loved the first game when I played it and I’m so excited for the sequel.
All of these things felt quite wonderful.
trying something new and microblogging about a passing mood instead of anything substantial or useful. i thought about not writing this, but if i am not allowing myself to indulge in writing about something i enjoy on my own site, what is the point? i can prune this later if i decide to, but i don’t want to limit myself before i’ve even started.
i think i will want to file this as a ‘note’ or something like that, as soon as i create that format.
