Since things are so bad that even late-night runs to the servo are off the table, connecting over video games seems like the most sensible course of action.

My partner and I still haven’t caught up on Evangelion 3.0 + 1.01: Thrice Upon A Time. I’d still like to rewatch You Can (Not) Redo. My partner and I first saw it as part of a movie marathon a few years ago — but we’d stepped out between 2.0 and 3.0 for a toilet break, and missed the first few minutes of 3.0.

That opening was so absurdly confusing, especially given where 2.0 finished. So going through both of those again will be a nice way to square off an anime I’ve enjoyed since it first aired on SBS all those decades ago.

The second part of the weekend will undoubtedly be a little bit work related. It’ll be nice to have a bit of normality for the review process again. I’m working through Aliens: Fireteam Elite at the moment, which is all I can mention at this stage. Stay tuned for more on that next week.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Please baby Jesus let me play Aliens: Fireteam Elite this weekend and I’ll review it for Kotaku! I cant wait until Tuesday… My body is ready!
    Otherwise more Hades and maybe GoT Directors Cut

  • Since I finally finished my 492 hour run of the ME Trilogy LE (Some of that was from the game not closing properly tho) I’ve started up Andromeda again since I had never finished it.

    The feel is so very different, like X-Treme sports versus the very Military feel of the original trilogy. That and with hindsight it plays like Anthem without the full flight. Firefights are so messy compared to the trilogy.

    • I tried Andromeda from Game Pass and thought, how bad could it REALLY be? About 2-3 hours in and I went, this isn’t THAT bad.. 10 hours into it I just went.. Why am I playing this? It’s not terrible, but I have no inclination to play it.. So it just sits there as I make any excuse to play something else..

      • On my first attempt a few years ago I’d apparently managed to get 50 hours of playtime in. I’d just gotten to the planet with the romanceable alien species. But doing a fresh game this time around.
