Hey, things are a little bit crazy right now in the news and general politics, especially in the UK (thank you, Dominic Cummings). Skip to the end for a list of some brand new releases. So please enjoy the latest games and tech news for this week!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons came at a perfect time. We were inbetween acceptance and denial, reaching for something to bring back normality. Thankfully, that's Animal Crossing's whole thing. We were all chomping at the bit to start our island adventures with some even petitioning for the game to be released early. It started off amazingly, with all the brand new features like keeping us island representatives active. And then some of us hit a wall.
"Hey, Megan," you're probably thinking. "what the hell is an Ambivert?" Well. An ambivert is someone who falls in the middle of an introvert and an extrovert. "Surely the two dynamics of introvert and extrovert are enough," I hear you cry, "people can only be one of two extremes!" I think most people would actually idenfity as an ambivert more if they knew about it. An ambivert's main idenfitying aspect is that they do enjoy being in a crowd or group of friends depending on the context but also have the limit of a social battery. It is the very definiton of the phrase "I came out to have a good time and I'm feeling so attacked right now." This isn't about the definition of an ambivert, though.
As a long term observer, short term player and perputally stuck as the DM, Dungeons and Dragons recently has been a god send to all of us. Those who are new, welcome to the club. Those who are returning with your new found extra time, welcome back I hope you remember where you left your dice! Those who've been playing this whole time? We can talk in Thieves' Cant and infurate the rest with our whispery secrets.
The Sims 4 is ugly, and stupid and I hate it. That's it. Done. Easy.
Pathologic 2 is a game I found on sale unexpectedly - and I fell in love. Or those heart palpatations were the sheer panic of the game's day system closing in from the word go; I couldn't tell you.
