Well, AGDQ 2017 is now over. They managed to bring in $2.2 million dollars in donations. I was pretty well glued to my computer for the entirety of last Saturday. Then Sunday rolled around and I had no idea what to do. I was facing con drop, and I wasn’t even at AGDQ. Thankfully SGDQ will be here before I know it.
It has been a pretty eventful week, however. Nintendo gave us a look at their new console, Switch. It looks nifty, but they lack enough launch titles to make me want to snag it at release. Though the new Zelda game looks like a damned good time! Of course, with anything exciting and new, the Internet had to get all hateful and negative. So many people complaining about the Switch. It’s sad when gamers can’t stop and just have fun.
Speaking of fun, I finally gave Warframe a try. This is essentially Destiny, but with more robots, swords, and plenty of grinding. It is a free game, so it does come with all the joys of spending money to remove portions of the grind. I have yet to spend any cash on the game, but I’m close to it. In the 15 or so hours I have played it, I have had a really good time. I almost question why I waited so long to give it a try. Oh right, because Steam reviews made it sound like it was going to be terrible.
When not hacking things up with my virtual sword of flaming hate, I’m either getting destroyed by big robots in Titanfall 2 or I’m plugging away at one of my toons in Guild Wars 2. I would be remiss if I didn’t stress just how fun Titanfall 2 is. I know it’s been said before, but this game is extremely entertaining. I know the first game caught a lot of flak, but this second attempt has shown that the devs listened to criticisms and made a vastly improved experience. My biggest complaint now is that it takes so friggin long to get into an online game. Hopefully more people will snag this gem over the summer so it’s easier to jump into more online matches.
Well, I do believe one of my new weapons is finally done building in Warframe, so I’m off to pick that up and go waste some more bad guys. The work of Vlad the Heartless is never ending.
