I normally tell you here about how fast time is going, how busy the week was or some other such stuff. Instead, this week went slowly. Well, not really, but it felt that way because I don’t have Horizon Zero Dawn, or a Switch, or Zelda. Instead, I’m just sitting here sulking. So, if you need something to distract you from your lack of awesome new games, or if you’re dying to go home and play those awesome things but are stuck at work, here’s what happened this week that you might have missed.

Best Stories

Yay, Shadow of War (aka, shadow of more doors) is taking the Nemesis System even further. I really enjoyed the original title almost entirely because of the Nemesis System, so more of it will make me even happier.

In other good news, the Nintendo Switch is selling really really well. Makes sense considering the new Zelda game is apparently the best title ever made. Like, ever.

Finally, we were awesome soldiers at airsoft for Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ launch. Actually, Tracy just seems to have been the ultimate badass; I’m still totally impressed.

Worst Stories

I suppose Marvel’s Netflix had to fail at some point, and by all reports, Iron Fist is that point. Although, to be honest, I’ve only really enjoyed their Luke Cage.

Random Stories

Is sexy cosplay random? I’m not sure. But you should still enter the competition, or go and support the awesome cosplaying community.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!
