Okay, so I know I’m over a year behind, but I blame making a human and stuff – I’m finally getting into The Witcher 3. It’s sort of all I want to play at the moment. I know you all know this, but wow what a great game. Even after all the hype has settled and way after the fact, the game is seriously solid. Stay tuned for next year when I tell you all about how I’m enjoying The Division.

In Other News: Video Games used the weirdest marketing techniques, Vivendi is always the bad guy, and id somehow thinks PC exclusivity will eliminate excuses.
