Let’s see, introduction patter… 2016 has been a cracker of a year for new games so far, hasn’t it? But this weather’s not been up to much, has it? Ah, stuff it: what are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re into right now:
Adam: [Adam is on holiday, according to a note written in John’s handwriting which John found left on his desk 23 hours and 59 minutes after we last saw Adam.]
Alec: I’m going to look at Duskers, because after a week of grit-toothed demon murder I need an anti-Doom. And also I need something that doesn’t make my increasingly messed-up and ancient PC wet the bed. Time to go from All The Graphics to No Graphics, at least until that there NVIDIA 1080 is doing the rounds and I can decide which body part to sell in order to afford it.
Alice: On week 15 of a new Darkest Dungeon save with no casualties and only mild despair at worst, I am riding high and feeling invincible. I can’t see how this could ever go wrong. Definitely not on the long expedition I’ve just embarked upon into the Cove with a lineup who don’t synergise all too well – brute force will always work, I’m sure. ‘Delightful Dungeon’ they’ll have to rename it after I’m done here.
Graham: I’m not going to be playing anything this weekend, because instead I’m going to be travelling on a ferry back to the mainland UK after a few weeks staying with family on a nearby island. Doing this with a seven week old baby with be a kind of game, however.
John: [Who dares ask?]
Philippa: This weekend I will mostly be playing housework but I will try to fit in a little bit of boardgaming. Maybe Star Wars Rebellion. Alternatively investigating what the frogs were up to in the pond while I was in China.
