Happy International Youth Day, everyone! If you too believe the children are our future, celebrate today by giving a youth you know what you would’ve wanted at their age: someone to talk to, someone who listens and believes them without judging, plus twenty Silk Cut and a bottle of WKD Blue.
What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on.
Adam:[Adam is on holiday. I’d imagine that he is, by now, playing Try To Peel All My Sunburn Off My Arm In One Single Untorn Strip -ed.]
Alec: Ah’m gittin’ off mah hoss and playing that there West Of Loathing, pard’ner. Its cowboy movie jokes are much better than my cowboy jokes are. Can it possibly live up to its deliriously silly predecessor, Kingdom of Loathing? Though, if today (Friday, fact fans) goes to plan I might have a write up of it up on the site before this WAWAPTW is posted, in which case my teasing as to whether it’s any good or not is ABSOLUTELY REDUNDANT.
Alice: I mmmight be down in That London this weekend and still am undecided as I write this. Dunno. It’s distant and expensive. If not, I’ll be kicking around the Edinburgh festivals. Either way, I suppose I’ll be squeezing Plunkbat and Isaac into the cracks of my weekend. Why, I have entire MINUTES between finishing writing this and the next train I may or may not catch. That’s more than enough time for a disastrous spicy drop onto the school rooftop while I think.
Brendan:[Brendan is also away. Both off and away, out and gone for the next week. By which I of course mean that he’s fired -ed.]
Graham: I’ve just installed Foxhole, the topdown multiplayer Jim Rossignol-’em-up that Brendan talked about on the podcast and wrote about this past week. You play a soldier in a war in which the players are as much responsible for the battle logistics as for the actual running and gunning, meaning you’ll need to work together to load trucks and drive trucks and deliver goods. That’s all I ever want out of a game.
John: I’m going to Londontown this weekend, where ancient by-laws state there must be no games. Instead I’ll be going to the Natural History Museum to see if I can find Andy’s time traveling clock and go visit some dinosaurs.
Philippa: This weekend I will be playing The Long Dark. I could also visit the local fete. If there’s time I should try to fit in a spot of tightening some witches.
