I'm now currently engaged in a month of Shameless Gaming, but that doesn't mean I'm not playing catch up on recent releases. In fact — at this point I still see The Last Of Us as a game on my pile of shame — I haven't quite finished it yet! This is the weekend people. This is the time!
I recently finished Hotline Miami on the PS Vita, which was arguably the biggest obstacle to me actually playing the rest of The Last Of Us, so I think I'll finally be able to turn on the PS3 and get busy. I am enjoying The Last Of Us, but I'd be lying if I said that it didn't feel like a grind at times. I respect the work that has gone into this game, respect the polish. Respect the writing. But that doesn't necessarily mean that it's a game that's enjoyable to play from moment to moment. It often isn't.
I expect I'll get the time to play, but this is Wimbledon weekend and my fellow Scotsman Andy Murray is still involved. Also it's UFC weekend! Games are going to be competing with many other passions of mine for my limited free time. I also have a six month old to look after. Urgh, the perils of grown up life.
What are you guys playing this weekend?
