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.
Loop Hero is really great, friends. 🎮
🎮 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!👍
Work in progress update to my Destiny Stats Machine: a point-n-clicky app for armor profiling and loadout finding. 🎮📊
Today called for some relaxed gaming, and Forza Horizon 4 hit the mark. 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.🎮
🎮 Speaking of Destiny, a note out to my micro.friends gamers: The upcoming expansion will be free for XBox with Game Pass, so if any folks new to the game are interested in checking it out, I’m happy to team up and show you some ropes! (I’m actually playing primarily on PC/Steam, so equally happy to meet up there.)
