Hey nerds! How was your week last week? Mine was pretty much: work, PS4, snow, and Stick It To The Man. All you need to know about work is it blows and I want a new job soon. More importantly, my roommate bought a PS4! I connected my PS+ account to it so we've been playing a bunch of Resogun and Warframe. While the PS4 is a lot of fun I gotta say, I am glad I'm not getting a personal one for awhile.
We also have Contrast and Blacklight; it's kind of great having four free games for a new system right out of the box. We haven't even bought a physical game yet! The game we've played the most though is Netflix. We seriously watched half of season two of American Horror Story in one sitting last night.
Then there was the snow. I'm sure many of you saw some of that shit this week too. In fact it's snowing outside my window as I type this. Snow sure was a lot more fun when you were younger. Oh well, maybe if it snows some more I can get a group together to sled. Any of you enjoyed the snow yet or have you just been bitter like me?
More recently I've been playing through Stick It To The Man on my Vita for review. So far I'm really digging it. I know Ian recently gave it a pretty good score.
I get a big Tim Schaffer vibe from the game and I love it. The humor has been a little hit and miss though. I look forward to completing it, look for the review on the next episode of Pocketoid!
Have a good week you cute idiots!
