    Video Games: It's On Like Donkey Kong

    Anyone playing this? It sure sounds great. After a few years, I think I’m ready for a new god of war game. I’ll probably pick this up when it gets down to thirty bucks or so. The combat sounds much better than the old ones, which I thought could feel a little bit weightless. I haven’t played all the old god of war games, just the psp ones and 3.

    Oh definitely! I'm actually playing this game right now. Some things about the first reboot were better, but I love the environments in this one. I cringe ever time Lara has to jump in water (though I like the animation of her wringing her hair out after for some reason). I also noticed that there is a costume where she wears a henley sweater and no jacket; what kind of monster would make her wear that?! The later stages of Journey have some really effective use of snow, especially in conjunction with the multiplayer.

    So, I generally never liked open world RPGs. However, I got a massive kick out of Witcher 3, and even did a decent amount of the side content (for me anyway). Then, last year I loved Zelda BotW. That got me thinking: maybe I'm an open world RPG person now. So, I got the new version of Skyrim on Switch... and I dunno, I just think it's boring AF. Perhaps it just shows its age a bit since it's old now. It's just the one-two whammy of my lack of interest in the story and combat. It's too bad since I like the visuals and I can tell there is a ton of world building in there. Anyway... I'm mostly playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4. I'm also playing GT Riptide Renegade on Switch. Riptide was on sale recently, and by golly it's the best 5 bucks I've ever spent. It's the first time I've played a game like this since Wave Race 64.

    Sterling on my bench of course. :/

    I just noticed that the guy winning Westeros is 53 in the world. Yikes! My season seems to be following a pattern: I make steady if unspectacular gains over the course of 5 or 6 gameweeks, then I completely throw away all my gains with a poor decision or forgetting to update my team.

    Suarez is the new RVP. You need him just to keep pace with everyone else. I wonder if RVP himself could be an option again once he's fit. Proabaly still too expensive, especially with the Rooney option.

    You might pick a team for the glut of holiday fixtures, then you'll have the January wildcard to follow. If you wait much longer now, you'll end up holding it until after January.

    Thankfully Oscar came through today. I made him captain last night instead of Aguero/Lukaku/Suarez while I was drunk. I woke up, looked at my fantasy team, and thought "why the fuck did I do that."

    I like how I have to consider Lukaku's fitness since his leg was hurt by Lloris's face.

    Was thinking about getting rid if lukaku for Suarez or maybe Rooney, but with palace coming up, I'll keep the faith for another week.

    What a fantasy beast Ramsey is this season. Another goal today and his ownership is already north of 50%. In a year with underperforming midfielders, you've got to have him. It'll be a great week for me if Lukaku and Everton can get it done against Spurs.

    Will it be possible to go without Suarez this season? Maybe I should do Lukaku out Suarez in. I always hate bringing in someone right after a hat trick like that though...

    I'm fairly happy with my performance so far this weekend, considering the fact that I have 20 million pounds of City talent sitting on my injury bench.

    Pretty much all my players are getting hurt in these internationals.

    I'm feeling pretty good about my start, despite having spent my wildcard early. I'm in 3rd place in Westeros and have a pretty decent team. I'm a decent ways off first though, with a 39 point gap. My early wildcard was, in part, a reaction to feeling like I spent it way too late last time. I spent it with only half a dozen or so games left in the season last time. I think it's hard to have a massive impact that late in the game. The early wildcard is much more viable than it once was since everyone gets a January wildcard to look forward to now.
