I grabbed it at first but after about 2 days decided it wasn't really for me. It's not an attempt to be edgy it just wasn't doing it. I don't like walking around with my phone in my hand because I feel like you might as well have a giant pulsating sign over your head saying "mug me". Plus there is literally no mobile internet where I live and I didn't want to only play when I'm connected to the wifi in my house. Also my phone contract has a data limit and I didn't want to use it all up on Pokemon in case I suddenly needed it to send an email or check a map when I'm out and about.


I'm not feeling it tbh. I can see why everyone loves it, it is pretty much the dream you had as a kid watching Pokemon on Saturday mornings. But as a game, it's bare bones and not actually that great. Plus there's barely any Pokestops or Gyms near me.

I literally have under 2 pages of abilities.

This is amazing.

My rotation was already nothing.


Why does my Subtlety Rogue now only have about 2 attacks? Am I going to have to start properly using Shadow Dance? Ah balls...

Pokemon Go gets me out of the house and gets me to go see places. Every time I have a spare moments when it's not raining I go on a walk. There's a pub about 7km away that I think is lovely and I go in there for a couple and it's right by a massive lake. Quite beautiful. Hatched a pair of 10km eggs on Tuesday, neither of them were cp.10 rattatas either. Chuffed. I need to hatch six 5km eggs which I'll do over the weekend!

Back on the WoW hype because gosh darn I fucking love new expansions and this invasion thing means free levels for characters.

Also PS Now is coming to PC with Last of Us confirmed as one of the games available for streaming. I might finally play the thing now.

It's not the best game since sliced bread like everyone makes it out to be, but it is damn good.

Bloodborne isn't available. The dream was almost real.

Played a few games at Insomnia, saw a bit of Mafia 3 footage. Went on the Razer bus and kicked total ass in LAN on Overwatch as a PC gamer. Took out four of their six, call me a fucking casual again scrublord, I treble dare you.

Tried a bit of Hearthstone because Overwatch has been fucking dire since competitive ended. Not bad, but need to find something else to replace OW for the off season.

Actually, may replay Undertale and go for one of the endings I didn't do. Fantastic game.

Amen Brah! Might return to my one character I left on Laughing Skull because I refused to give up his name (Baalzamon)

I picked up Dark Souls 3, Doom and Everybody's Gone To The Rapture for PS4.

The first is kicking my arse; the second is okay, but just feels a generic FPS; and the third is really pretty, but has no clear objectives so I end up walking around for ages before bumping into the story.

On PC I've been playing Stardew Valley, Civ V, and Undertale. I've also just installed Deus Ex: Human Revolution in crossover to replay that since it looks like the latest one might be coming to Linux. :D

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I've been replaying Fallout 4 on PS4 in survival mode. Surprise Yao Guais are the bane of my existence.
