What Are You Playing This Weekend?

WELL?

This weekend I shall be playing with life and death. My beloved swimming pond has put up a rather serious sign, with the water now floating around 2-4C. It's fine. I'm fine. Everything's fine. The worst that's happened is three fingers felt half-numb for a day. Pushing a little closer to death, I'll doubtless play more The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and deep into death I'm quite keen to see what Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines mod Antitribu is all about.

I saw a little of Antitribu when I fired it up to take that screenshot of the meathouse for the post (obvs I'll play Tzimisce), but barely recognised it. Skipping straight to that level, I discovered a big cutscene I'd never seen with characters I'd never met, voices I'd never heard, and weapons I'd never used. Seems pretty ambitious, that one.

As for Isaac, now I've unlocked a good chunk of weird things I'm starting playing Eden, who begins with random stats and random items. This is a fun and painful test of actually knowing the game and adapting well.

If I don't resist, Bloodlines' fab Hollywood theme will get stuck in my head for a month. I've been listening to a lot of Rocket from the Crypt (one of the great openers of rock 'n' roll, that one), Betty Davis, and the newly-reformed Babes in Toyland and Sleater-Kinney.
