day 41 - TGIF

Today is the 6th day of the 6th week, the 10th day of the 2nd month, the 41st day of 2023

Two games came out today that had the gaming community quite involved.  The first was Hogwarts Legacy - a long awaited video game set at JR Rowling's beloved school of wizardry.  The game has a lot to live up to the hype and expectation of many Potter fans who will nitpick details but may not be actual gamers, and there is a bit of controversy attached to it because JR Rowling has been pretty vocal of late about "a man is a man and a woman is a woman and that is a biological fact", which comes across pretty hostile to the gender fluidity of modern thought.  There's an active boycot of the game,  some gaming publications are refusing to review it and some platforms will not carry it as Rowling will benefit from the royalites and they feel her stance is transphobic.  

This is the kind of game I would like to explore, but have no idea when I would do it.  

The second hasn't received as much attention, but it is still very big news.  Most people have heard of MYST, the video game that dominated back in the 1990's, that spurred the use of CD-rom games, and is considered one of the best video games evwr made, selling over six million copies and reigning supreme until The Sims came along in 2002.  Well today, Cyan released a mobile verson for the iPhone and IPad in the Apple App store   Unfortunately I couldn't put it on my iPad because it is older, but it loaded fine on my phone.  The initial setup is free, but it has to be purchased to activate all the puzzles.

This is the kind of game I download, open, oooh and aah over, close and never play, because that time thing again.  Turns out that working for a living takes up an inordante amount of your waking life!  Add a bit of time wandering in world, and maybe a run or two in your fav game [I'm still hunting for rainbow goblins and cosmic wings in Diable III], and getting some sleep, and there just isn't a lot of time to explore new worlds!

Have a good weekend, you all!
