Neither Chris nor I have gotten much gaming done this weekend or even over the last week. He was actually being productive, traveling and taking photos for his photography business. I, on the other hand, did pretty much nothing but try not to die as I was laid up with a nasty stomach bug most of the week. And then I had a certification training class all weekend long, when I was finally feeling better, so once again, all work and no play made me dull indeed.
I actually did plan to play a bit this weekend, as I have a Vita game to review, but the technology gods continued to reign against me. I came home from class late on Saturday evening, and I was exhausted. I just wanted dinner, play with the kids, get stuff done ahead of time, and then work on a review or even the Doom closed beta. As I was writing an email, the screen on my phone DIED. It would flicker in and out, but it was obvious it wasn’t long for this world. If I didn’t have a full day of class on Sunday, I would have said, oh that sucks and moved on. But I knew if I didn’t have a working phone for the next day, I was inviting a flat tire. So it was off to Best Buy I went at nine o’clock at night.
Fortunately for me, my LG G3 lasted me over 2 years (suck it, Apple) so I was more than eligible for a phone upgrade. Also lucky for me, the LG G5 just released a few days before, which I was wanting. Well, I wanted to research it when I got the time to see if it was worth the upgrade, but my phone decided NOPE, you upgrade NAO. Naturally I was at the store for quite some time as it’s not so simple to purchase a phone and walk out.
So yay for a new shiny toy! Booooo I didn’t get any gaming done. I miss both Twilight Princess and The Division like you wouldn’t believe. Fortunately for me, I don’t have many reviews this month, so I’ll actually get some strategy guide reviews done in a timely fashion!
Also sad to report that Chris and I will not be recording the SGR Coffee Break this week, as he is still traveling. We’re not sure about next week either. He’s one busy, busy boy.
I hope you all got more gaming done than we did. What did you fill your weekend with?
