Update: Thero’s An Idiot.

I’ll always admit when I’ve done something stupid and last week I did something stupid. Some of you may remember I said I was going to write a recommended video game post and post it last week. Well, I wrote it… but I forgot to schedule it so it would go up last Thursday. To make matters worse, I didn’t realise this until late Sunday evening. So, I am an idiot. I want to apologise to you guys and the post will go up Tuesday.

What am I reading?

I finished The Crown Towerby Michael J. Sullivan and went straight onto the next book in the series, The Rose and the Thorn, which I have about 100 pages to go. I know I’ve said it once but I’m saying it again, if you love epic fantasy, I highly recommend The Riyria Revelations and The Riyria Chronicles. I would, like the author suggests, start with Riyria Revelations then move onto Riyria Chronicles because there are some moments in Chronicles that give a little nod to the first series. Still, both series have me hooked and probably will hook other fantasy fans.

What have I been playing?

Mad Max. OK, let’s move on. Well, if you want to me to go into details… I’ve now been playing the game for more than 100 hours. I’ve completed Act 3 of the story, collected all the car colours and hood ornaments; used every lookout post; completed one race in a legendary car in record breaking time; almost finished all construction projects and almost defeated every enemy base. I guess you could say I’m making some progress. I reckon with a few more hours I’ll have completed most side objective and collectables, then its just the rest of the story. Once that is completed, I’ll be reviewing the game on the Upon Completion blog. Then I’m going to play a much shorter game.

What am I blogging about?

Like I mentioned at the start of this post, on Tuesday there will be a Recommended Gaming post. On Friday, providing I’m continuing to be stupid, there will be a Recommended Reading post.

And that is pretty much it for last week. Not a lot really happened, mainly because I was working most of the week. I hope you guys have been enjoying the summer, as always I love hearing about what you’ve been reading/playing/watching, so let me know in the comments!

  1. Sounds like you are getting your money’s worth out of Mad Max. When it comes to games I normally focus on the story and leave the optional stuff for later. My fear is that if I take too long to complete a game I may drop it when a flashier new release comes out.

    Right now I am playing Miitopia. It’s surprisingly long for a casual RPG. Not sure how much time I have spent on it thus far, but I’m certain it’s nowhere near 100 hours!

    1. I definitely am! While I normally take your approach, in Mad Max you benefit from completing the additional content, as that unlocks upgrades making Max stronger.
      I’m guessing Miitopia is a Nintendo game. Is it any good?
