It’s starting to really heat up in the Eastern states, which is great for hitting up the beach and having a nice cold cider/spritz/wine on the beach. Alternatively, it’s also a banging excuse to crank the aircon and just camp out in Call of Duty.

I’ve been having a surprisingly good time with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. I’m not saying it’s the best Call of Duty or the best Black Ops by any stretch, but it has been so long since I’ve consistently spent time with a Call of Duty game, and I think that adrenaline and all-out pace is what I might have missed more than anything else.

Naturally, it helps that one of the starting weapons is reliable to a fault.

Beyond that, I’m just looking forward to having a bit of a relaxing one. It’s been an exceptionally brutal last few weeks, and this is the first week I’ve had since taking leave in October where I haven’t had some work bearing down on me. That’s par for the course for a season this busy — it’s what you sign up for in many ways — but it’ll be nice to just chill and do things without any pressure.

Especially under the breeze of a nice aircon.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Assassins Creed Valhalla
    Watch Dogs Legion (After the recent patch)
    Stardew Valley
    Fortnite (My Niece is coming over for the weekend)

    • Turns out that my Niece really like the PSVR
      so she spend last night Playing the London Heist minigame from VR Worlds

  • I will check if the Watch Dogs patch will allow me to complete it. Stuck at 90% progress with a game ending bug (that wasn’t mentioned in the patch notes).

    Otherwise Valhalla all the way.

  • I don’t know! I just finished the Mafia 1 remake. I don’t jump on new games for at least 6 months or more so all the patches and DLC can come out and I get the best experience. Not that I have time to play more than one or two non-RPG games a month anyway. Maybe I can start Rise of the Tomb Raider or the COD WW2 campaign.

  • While I should be playing Destiny and Valhalla and finishing Astros before Cyberpunk, I ma somehow addicted to Cold War. It is the first CoD in ages that is just working for me. No idea why. I like when a random game you dont expect fills a void. Best free game ever (I got it as a present).
