Something For The Weekend - 22nd April 2016


This week I've been playing Fallen London, the delightfully chewy and intoxicating text-based RPG that Sunless Sea was based on. The new iOS client launched this week, and it's a perfect fit. Now I can seduce artists and get in fights with golems from the comfort of my toilet. But my god, The Banner Saga 2 is out! I should play that! What kind of a narrative fan would I be if I didn't play that?

Irritatingly I played the first Banner Saga on iPad, which I've since deleted - so I reckon I'm shafted when it comes to importing a save into the sequel! As much as I loved the tone and writing of the original, it didn't do a great job of making the economic choices feel meaningful and the whole thing ended when it was JUST HEATING UP. I'd love to jump back in to exactly where my story left off, but perhaps I've fluffed up my ability to do that! HO HUM.

Still, I've got plenty on my plate! I'm mostly just hopping between Ratchet & Clank and Dark Souls 3, meandering through both without any real momentum. It's been a long week, so I'm planning to have a very chilled time!

What are you guys up to this weekend?
