Since I've moved on from the day-to-day of running Kotaku, I've actually been having more fun that ever with video games. It's weird. I feel less pressure to play, so I play more. Does that even make sense?
And the fun part is this: I'm playing the games I want to play, not the games I need to play.
So what am I playing this weekend? I'm actually not sure yet.
In the new games box? I'm playing Grow Up, the just released sequel to Grow Home, which was one of my favourite games of 2015. I'm also halfway through a New Game + of Dark Souls 3.
I've also been considering playing the remaining half of Metal Gear Solid V -- which I loved to death, but just never had time for.
But I'll probably spend the whole weekend playing Super Mario 3D World for the rest of all time because my three-year-old son is obsessed with it.
