What are you taking part in this weekend?
It’s tremendous sizzling in my neck of the woods. It has been since early June. We did not have a lot of a spring, and we lastly obtained some rain yesterday, which was sorely wanted. Thankfully, it’s raining once more at present, so perhaps issues will not look as brown.
As sizzling as it’s, one would assume Ketucky skipped July enturely and went straight into August. That’s often the time of yr right here when all the things appears to be dying of thirst – not July. August is miserably sizzling, humid as Hell, and you may hear the grass crunch while you stroll throughout it. They do not name the month of August the “Dog Days” round right here for nothing.
Because it’s so sizzling already, these with out the luxurious of a swimming pool (and people of us who refuse to dip one toe right into a public pool) attempt to discover indoor actions to do with the air-con turned all the way down to sub-zero temperatures. In my home on the weekends, when it’s sizzling like this, we play video games – which I’m certain lots of you do as effectively.
But it is not simply overly heat the place I reside, as a result of it is sizzling in different places too. Here’s what Team VG247 is doing to beat the warmth this weekend:
Connor Makar, Contributor – DNF Duel, Legends of Runeterra
This weekend, I’ll be persevering with to play Nexon’s fighting-action sport DNF Duel. I’m nonetheless having a very good time with it! It’s an extremely foolish sport, for certain, however I believe it is the silliness that makes it so interesting to play.
I’ve additionally dipped my toe into Legends of Runeterra once more for some purpose. There have been a couple of days final week the place my web wasn’t doing so sizzling, which pushed me in the direction of video games playable on-line with out falling aside within the face of packet loss or connection drops. It’s fairly stable – and I’m within the means of constructing a pleasant Malphite deck up.
Dom Peppiatt, Features Editor – Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course
A brawl is unquestionably brewing! That’s proper, it’s the return of Cuphead, Mugman, and newcomer Ms. Chalice in The Delicious Last Course. I put Cuphead down after beating (most of) it means again in 2017 – , the time earlier than the world grew to become a dwelling nightmare hellscape contaminated with the plague and slowly reaching a point-of-no-return temperature. Back then, I believed “I haven’t got the time to whittle away hours of my life, perfecting a fight against a cow that turns into a tin of hot dogs, only to be told my performance was A- quality”.
For no matter purpose – whether or not it’s due to the way in which Covid has modified my mindset, or my extra nihilistic outlook on life on the whole – my opinion on Cuphead has modified wildly. I now savour the chance to get my ass handed to me by a crew of fighter pilot canines, about 40 occasions in a row, earlier than I study their assault patterns effectively sufficient to parry their tennis balls and take them out with out being hit, even as soon as.
I’m slowly making my means by way of the Cuphead DLC as my accomplice watches on, asking why a cow immediately turns into sausages and begins hurling offcuts of her gristly meat at me. I’m dwelling my life to the fullest, I promise.
Stephany Nunneley, News Editor – Graveyard Keeper
It’s been some time since I fired up Graveyard Keeper on Steam, and to be trustworthy with you, I had utterly forgotten about it. Not that it is a unhealthy sport. On the opposite, it is good. I’ve simply had a bout of gaming ADD over the past couple of years.
Bought at launch, I loved the sport the various, many hours I performed it, however there are solely so many autopsies you’ll be able to carry out, graves you’ll be able to rob, and ghosts to struggle earlier than it turns into form of a chore – in contrast to Stardew Valley which as you all know is my third love behind The Elder Scrolls and Lord of the Rings Online.
But, listening to Graveyard Keeper is now accessible through PS Plus Extra gave me an itch I really feel I have to scratch, so I’m going to fireplace Steam up and get again into the sport someday this weekend.
What do you propose on doing this weekend? Whatcha playin’? Let us know!
