A lazy post for a lazy weekend

Because this weekend has been nothing but relaxation for me, I’ll give you a post that fits the laziness of the past three days. So, dear readers, what have I been up to?

When it comes to gaming, I’ve been hopping around from one game to another. I’ve been busy gearing my boosted Dwarf Shaman in World of Warcraft, surviving hordes of demons on my hardcore Crusader in Diablo 3, and I decided to join the building and exploring fun in Everquest Next: Landmark. The latter one has been a real ad-hoc purchase, and I’m not disappointed so far! It feels like a 3D version of Minecraft with fine music, giving it an almost meditative vibe. I’ll make sure to give Landmark some time in between my Blizzard games.

Far away from the MMO games, I finished Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition just a few hours ago. Despite my still remaining opinion about naming this action-packed epic game Tomb Raider, I have to admit that I enjoyed every single minute of the game. The story is enjoyable, the gameplay more than fun and the whole thing looks so freaking beautiful. Really, if you haven’t given this game a try yet, put it on your to-do list!

For the coming week, I’m planning on spending some time with Lorellis again, so you will see a new Faffing to 90-post. Also, I’ll be building and gathering in Landmark, so there will probably be a post about that as well. Finally, since Game of Thrones is about to head into its fourth season, I won’t hold back with my opinion about the first episode.

All in all, look forward to an interesting week here on The Chindividual!

Tomb Raider – an unexpected nice snack from my gaming buffet

103765

I recall this statistic that the majority of gamers don’t finish most of the games they buy. Sadly, I have to face the fact that I belong to that part of the community. With all these sweet titles coming out, it’s hard to finish one before the next one is begging for your attention. To me, it feels like paying for a meal I won’t finish, because someone was so kind to order another, even better looking plate for me. Well, I should just accept my gaming life has turned into a running buffet, and I shouldn’t wait finishing my plate when I can just throw something else good-looking on it. Following that philosophy, I decided to get myself a helping of Tomb Raider. How was it? Better than expected.
