Seeing as how you two cheap podcast hussies cheated on me last week, I feel like I should not even be writing this email. I was gone one week, and I come back to find you reading an email from somebody else!!! For real?! Where is your loyalty? Tell that podcast whore to get his own show hosts to torment. Geez, I feel so betrayed. Hurt. I’m hurt. Wounded, really. What can I say, though? I just can’t quit you. Oh well, at least you did not give him the honor of playing the email intro for him. Turds. I mean, he couldn’t even be bothered to be completely irrelevant, self aggrandizing, and incoherently rambling like me! Jason did not even have to paraphrase him for crap’s sake!!
I watched a fair amount of E3 earlier this week, and I can scarcely recall a time in which I came away so underwhelmed with the experience. Some games did look great, do not get me wrong, but I feel like I saw half of what they unveiled at last year’s Expo. I was counting on this year’s show to be very VR heavy, and it just wasn’t. Sony teased their VR experiences a little, but not enough to get anyone hyped for the device. I really want for VR to realize its potential, but I sure hope the Sony unit launches with at least one killer game to get me excited for more. Although I hate the series as a whole, I have to say that Call of Duty infinite looked really good. I was digging the grapple mechanic, and I am a sucker for a good space game. Speaking of, could the tiny scrap of Mass Effect Andromeda have been less impressive? They basically showed us nothing. Also, Dead Rising 4 and Days Gone By looked really, really good. I knew Microsoft was going to unveil the Xbox One S, and while I dig what they’ve done with slimming down their giant vcr of a console, I just cannot see the point in releasing it when a lot of gamers like me who have not yet purchased a one know that the more powerful Scorpio is on the horizon. I was going to buy an S until I learned that little nugget. But at least Microsoft unveiled something hardware related. The PS4K is coming, and Sony could not be arsed to provide some details? Seriously?
I have been doing a fair bit of gaming this week. I spent some time with Destiny, of course, but I also started in on Mad Max for the PS4. Rhett, I highly recommend this game. I’m not well versed in the Mad Max mythos, but this game is a LOT of fun. An open world game set in a dystopian future? What’s not to love? Other than that, my geekish goings on have consisted of finishing up season one of Jessica Jones. I do not care how much Rhetty Poo grouses about it, I enjoyed the crap out of it. I just finished watching Age of Apocalypse from the comfort of my living room right before I started in on this email. Don’t ask. Honestly I think it is the best X-Men film to date. Did it have some plodding plot issues? Yeah. But it was a ton of fun to watch, and I like what they did with Jean Grey and Quicksilver. The Magneto thing was a little predictable, but still fine. I got hyped when they unleashed Weapon X! That was cool!
Of course, I’ve been steadily adding to my original Xbox collection. Brushing up against 300 titles now. Only 594 more to go!! Lol I also managed to snag one of the world’s 1,980 copies of Saturday Morning RPG for my PS4. I refuse to open it. Gonna leave it sealed and download a digital copy to play it.
Work has been filled with drama this week. Long story short, we have gone from a 4 person store to a 3 person store. One person did and said some colossally stupid things and was shown the door. This person will not be missed. That means we have a job opening. Interested, Rhett? I mean, the commute would be a nightmare and all, but I think you could handle it. You just could not do the part where you have to throw on your nice face and pretend to give a crap about your customers. Lol
Anyway, this person blames me for their termination. They believe I snitched. I did not . I said nothing at all, and have nothing to do with it. But I will let them believe what they want. This person does not pay my bills or raise my kids, so c’est la vie!
That’s it for this week. Gotta go wash my fat self and crawl into bed. Have a great show, guys!
