Pretty Good Hat

🎮 This is a fun, super-smart review of Outriders, a game I’ve had a good time with the past couple of weekends. It’s on Game Pass, XBox micro.friends!

Today I dusted off my latest video game hobby project, ArmoreR, my Destiny 2 armor stats profiler, and finished some improvements that have been on my list. I haven’t been motivated to dig back into it for a while partly because I just … didn’t feel like it … and partly because I had hit a point of complexity with it that made it hard to approach again. But I had a really nice time catching up with just how it works and then gradually identifying and implementing the improvements I wanted to make.

It’s a great time to hop into the Friends at the Table real-play RPG podcast. They just started a new season in a fallen, spooky and cursed world, after some great worldbuilding episodes. Check it out!

🎮 I didn’t know it, but Lonely Mountains Downhill was exactly the game I was looking for this weekend. It’s super fun and also occasionally stabby.

🎮 Xbox gaming friends, if you didn’t play Prey, there’s no more excuse: It’s on Game Pass now and it’s so very good.

🎮 XBox friends: Dungeon of the Endless is a fun and interesting tower defense sci-fi dungeon crawler studded with neat mechanics and writing, and it’s on Game Pass now. Recommended!👍

It’s great fun just to drive the beautiful countryside in this game. The game also has a really excellent photo mode, so I got some bonus weekend hygge in the background for this one.

Spent a good chunk of the day learning how to make a Shiny app out of my Destiny Armor Profiling Thing. That was fun and my brain is also broken.🎮
