Time to Loot Journal: August 2020

Whoa– Lookee dere! That there featured image is something other than a Cities: Skylines screenshot for the first time in… *checks* …a while! It’s breaking a four-month stretch of Cities. It’s from Control which I’ve just picked up over the weekend and have now spent almost 8 hours in already. I do feel a little

Lost Ark Coming West at Last?

Probably. This news isn’t new — I first saw the announcement some four or five days ago. But despite some outlets at the time claiming it was for sure Lost Ark, I couldn’t find any source explicitly saying so. I had heard there were some Korean publications where Lost Ark was mentioned specifically by name,

Slinging Rocks in Elite Dangerous

It looks like much of my gaming mojo has returned, if not (yet) the posting to follow. I think, though, that the new (much) lower rate of posting had in itself started to be habit forming. So here’s a post to try break the cycle! And despite the title, Elite Dangerous isn’t the only thing

The Bestest Baddies

In almost any other year we’d be in full-on Blaugust mode at this point. Instead we had a Blapril! Well, ‘instead’ might be a little strong.

Imposter Factory Drops a New Trailer

For instance — I had no idea that Kan Gao also dropped a more jokey ‘It’s just a dream’ style trailer for Finding Paradise (aka ‘2 the Moon’, lol). In fact that trailer is essentially the same composition as Imposter Factory’s first trailer except with Neil and Eva’s roles reversed as the ‘dreamer’ of the

Humble Choice: August 2020

Hmmmm. August 2020’s bundle is… Not great. If not for the top two picks (for me) of Vampyr and Wargroove there is no doubt I would have paused this month. But that’s jumping ahead a little perhaps! Not too much else to say though — so let’s get to it. As always, my list assumes

FOMO Is a Powerful Motivator

I made a call not to participate in the every-day version of this year’s Blaugust Promptapalooza. I will be participating, just not every day. I still think this is the right call for me and where I’m at right now. But hoo boy! I was not prepared. I hadn’t the foggiest the extent of the
