Butch:

Well, I got nothing on the game we are currently playing, so let’s talk about what we’re playing next.

So Death Stranding sounds….well….I guess it depends on who you ask. I can certainly see how the creative, artsy nature of it is right up our alley, but…..I dunno. Read some reviews. They’re worth reading. It certainly sounds like a thing, and perhaps a thing that we’d be far more interested in if a bunch of other things weren’t already things…

…but there are other things.

I dunno, man. Ponder. Though, given all we’ve done lately, and our mutual desire for variety, I might vote Outer Worlds.

But ponder. We’ll discuss.

I mean, read this review and try to tell me what the fuck it is and if it’s good:

Feminina:

Uh…hm. It sounds very interesting…but that “long and grueling”…I don’t know if that’s what I’m in the mood for right after finishing a very long (if not necessarily grueling) game.

Hm.

Butch:

I concur. Shall we consign it to the maybe later pile?

So what do we play? You cool with outer worlds?

Feminina:

Outer Worlds looks fun, and it’s probably been long enough since I last played a Fallout-esque game that I could get back into it. But I might have to play Divinity… Mr. O’ has mentioned the possibility a couple of times, so it’s on his mind. He was kind of disappointed when I started Detroit.

Outer Worlds is supposed to be much shorter, which is kind of appealing after Odyssey, but I don’t know if I can resist the sad puppy dog eyes of my spouse who wants to play a game with me.

Butch:

Oh all right. He’s ready to start and y’all will finish?

Feminina:

Yeah, I know, the danger is that we start and then because of the having-to-both-be-free issue with scheduling, it could take us a while to finish.

But I swear, I’m going in with a different approach for my character this time! All business! No need to obsessively murder every captain I see!

It’s going to be great.

But yes, he’s ready to go as soon as I’m done with Detroit. And naked Zeus knows we both like our game time.

Butch:

Just as long as our bloggage does not fall victim to the fickle whims of Mr. O. I’ll go order it.

[later]

Ok, I will have DOS2 the enhanced edition, whatever that means, tomorrow. Is your edition enhanced? It was all anyone had.

On sale, too!

When did you buy it? Christmas?

Feminina:

Noooo!!!! Ours is only the “Definitive” edition! And it wasn’t on sale!

Siiiiiiiiiigh.

Butch:

Oh. Maybe that was it.

Yup. Definitive.

But only 20 bucks.

When did you buy it?

Feminina:

Whoa! Pretty sure I paid more than that. Nice.

I bought it in July for some reason. Planning ahead for Christmas but couldn’t wait? Late anniversary? I don’t remember.

Maybe it WAS on sale at the time. It’s a mystery.
