Weekends are great for long sleeps, but once you’re refreshed and recharged there’s plenty on the cards.
I started playing a little bit of Underlords again after having a long chat with a friend (through Twitch, oddly). The game’s changed substantially over the last month. Apart from the natural balance changes and adjustments to hero pricing, there’s the concept of free rerolls — amazing if you love low percentage strategies like me — and more bonus items that can completely screw up the board.
There’s dummy characters that basically act like a giant taunt, barriers you can use to zone out assassins from your back line, a healing ward (!!!) and a tombstone that spawns zombies.
That has a huge impact on your positioning, so it’s been fun to mess around with. I’ve also been playing around with the tinier Glorious Model O- mouse, which has meant a good chunk of CS:GO and Overwatch as part of that testing. (But way too much time spent playing as a tank.)
If that wasn’t enough, there’s still WoW: Classic levelling, Borderlands 3 has just dropped, older games that I’ve wanted to revisit like Observation and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and stuff like Greedfall. And if all goes well, a bit of Untitled Goose Game. Fingers crossed an email comes in for that.
What are you playing this weekend?
