The Week In Games: A Mostly Quiet Winter Week

As we enter the week of Christmas and get closer to the end of 2021, the release schedule has, as it always does this time of year, mostly evaporated. But that’s not a bad thing! In fact, this is often a great time to get caught up on some previous releases.

For me, this is often the best time of the year to crack into my backlog of games and start finally playing stuff I’ve put off for weeks or even months. Personally, I’m going to hopefully get around to playing The Gunk, Returnal, and put more time into Halo Infinite’s excellent multiplayer. That last one isn’t on my backlog, but I just can’t stop playing it. Oh, and I might play more Destiny 2 as I’m falling back into that dark hole, again…
