Things are getting back to normal this week. I’ve picked up most of the board games that I’ve been wanting to try out for a few years now. Played a few turns of Eldritch Horror, which looks like a great game to play with others. Most recent is Star Wars Rebellion (the board game, not the PC game of the same name), which I have just set up and looks like a lot of fun. I’m probably going to play a few turns of that game before cleaning up my table and working on some LEGO and model kit projects.
This week, on the TV front, I’m starting on the Hobbit movies since I missed out on them years ago. I’m also working my way through the Star Wars movies again, for like the 10th time while going to finally get through Clone Wars and Rebels when I get the opportunity. Lastly, I’m queuing up Avatar: The Last Airbender, Studio Ghibli films, and Dragon Ball Z Kai. I have a lot to keep me entertained this week.
With PC gaming, I’m playing Final Fantasy XIV again. I’d like to continue the story but as DPS, I’m hitting a brick wall with trying to queue up for the mandatory story dungeon. I rage quit last year when I waited for over an hour and nobody would run through the dungeon with me. This time I’m working towards being a healer, so I instantly get queued up and leveled so I can progress through the story again. I also joined a really cool guild so I can have some people to hang out with while I do this. On the downside, I’ve been neglecting ESO as I simply don’t have time for two MMOs.
On the PS4, I’m playing through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I’d like to get through that and eventually go back and play The Witcher 3 before Cyberpunk comes out. There’s also God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Final Fantasy XII, and Spider-Man on my queue so it seems like I’ll always have something to play.
Simulators, I plan on running through one or two hauls in American Truck Simulator: Washington DLC. Most likely will do that after this post.
With books, I’m in the Star Wars mood. I want to work through some Star Wars novels and comics. I’m not sure which novel to start on just yet (possibly Lost Stars by Claudia Gray), but with comics I’ll definitely start with the main Star Wars series, followed by Darth Vader.
That’s about it for now. Going to have a really busy week ahead of me. Somehow I’ll have to manage to squeeze all of this in after work each day, at least until next Sunday when I’m off again.
