PAYDAY 2 John Wick DLC Released

PAYDAY 2 is an interesting one for me. It’s not my usual fare; it has guns instead of swords and explosives instead of magic and I haven’t gotten massively into a first person shooter since the days cramped around a tiny TV playing Goldeneye with my brother and sister. Still, the PAYDAY series has a certain appeal to me, letting me indulge in a bit of modern day devilry without having to commit too heavily learning all the intricate details of the game or hear twelve year olds talk about all the things they’d like to do with my mother. The cooperative aspect of it sets it apart from most games in the genre, allowing for a lot of fun tactics. When playing with others over the internet, it does have that “Its better that I don’t know you. Just do the job and go home” kind of feel. So, now that the new John Wick DLC has dropped as part of PAYDAY’s Crimefest celebration, now is as good a time as any to pick up this title and try my hand at it again. Read more …

The flip side of this coin is that there’s a lot I could write about, but choose not to.  I could rant for volumes on matters that very few people care about, or in some cases, very few people care about far too much.  In circumstances like this, I try to boil my viewpoint down to a more succinct statement where possible, so that if I feel utterly compelled to let loose my bile, it’s at least of a length unlikely to induce a coma.  Depending on the topic matter, this can be difficult, but not always.

I Wish I Knew How To Quit You

It’s been about 6 weeks since I arrived home from work one day to find an Amazon delivery waiting for me. Inside was a Destiny PS4 bundle, along with a copy of The Last Of Us Remastered. Being a PS Plus subscriber, I also had instant access to about 10 games that I’d been storing away since last year.

So out of all the games at my disposal over the past month, which one is my favourite? Well, that’s a tricky one to answer, since the only one I’ve played is Destiny. Despite it’s flaws and annoyances, I just can’t stop playing the damn thing, God help me.
