If you like video games, or 80’s themed sci-fi shows, October 27 is the day that’s going to make your head explode. Games released today: Super Mario Odyssey, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and Assassin’s Creed Origins. Shows that drop today on Netflix: Stranger Things 2. AH. I die.
So, what’s my plan? I’m getting both Super Mario Odyssey and Wolfenstein 2 on release day. I’ll play Wolfenstein 2 on PS4 while my fiancée plays Super Mario Odyssey on the Switch- but I’ll bet I put down my PS4 controller a fair amount over the weekend to partake in some hat-throwing! It might be jarring to “switch” back and fourth between a cheery Mario title and a more gruesome FPS, but hey, I can’t choose, so I’ll play both. As for AC, I’m not the biggest fan of the series, but reviews have looked solid, and the environments look darn beautiful. I’ll pick it up as soon as I beat Wolfenstein 2!
Then there’s Stranger Things 2…Oh joy and happiness. I loved the first season so much. I’m not planning to binge this new season with all of these video games a foot, but I do plan to watch one or two episodes a day over a meal.
Also, I’m going to a Stranger Things themed yoga class tonight. NAILED IT.
Dear everyone who is making choices between these games and media this weekend – good luck to you. It’s tough out there having such amazing things to choose from. Enjoy yourselves! What a time to be alive.
Update on 11/6:
Wolfenstein 2 – Beat it on Sunday 10/29 (15 hours). It was awesome!
Super Mario Odyssey – My fiancee beat it on Sunday 11/5 (I helped out a bit). What I played was awesome, and what I saw was awesome!
Stranger Things 2 – Finished it on Saturday 10/28. AWESOME!
And now I have picked up Assassin’s Creed Origins. AND IT IS GOOD. I usually don’t like AC games and I get frustrated. I did like Black Flag, and I’m loving this new one. It’s actually creeping up into GOTY realms for me. Dang. What a year for games!
