2023 Hopes!

So much of my life is outside of my control. Naturally family comes first and they need me to drop everything on a regular basis. So I got a bunch of stuff that I hope to do. I wouldn't go as far as saying goals. They're listed in order of importance. Stuff near the top more likely than stuff at the bottom.


I'm over 80 now and I want to loose a bit to get into a more healthy weight. I can be disciplined about what I eat, so with the one below, this should be ok.

Cult Of The Lamb: Roguelike with Settlement Building and NPC management where you manage a cult as a lamb

Cult of the lamb is a very strange game with a somewhat twisted sense of humor and a very distinctive art style. Elements of games like Hades or Dead Cells with roguelike dungeon runs added to a settlement builder where you manage resources and cultists akin to something like Stardew or Oxygen Not Included with this very distinct paper cut out in 3d graphics like Don't Starve with cute music and sprites and this very dark sense of humor.


It's the late 90's (more specifically, I think 1999). I'm a young, naive 24-year old. I've had a couple of tattoos (once on my sternum at Uni, and one on my neck at the only tattoo parlour in Reading...Ians, near Chatham Street). I've got some piercings (my tongue, eyebrow, and one nipple (twice, brielfy...)).

Diablo Immortals: Not a bad diablo game with a shitty end game and some of the worst greedy monetization ever seen ... DO YOU NOT HAVE PHONES!

So Diablo Immortals is smashing records left and right unfortunately they are records for worst user score with it currently in the top 5 of the worse scored games of all time on metacritic.

I wasn't expecting much from this late season April fools joke given it was NetEase and Blizzard two terrible companies their powers combined for double awful mobile game nonsense.

But what has come out is worse than most people even guessed at.

Vampire Survivors : The other game I've been playing where you die over and over but this one's 1/20 the price of the other

Vampire Survivor is a rogue-lite ... wait come back it's good ... if you like that sort of thing.

It sort of came out of nowhere and went from a little known extremely cheap game (think it's $2.50 at the moment) to being all over the blogosphere the youtubs the twitchers and tictacs

On the surface a very simple game you control a vampire survivor through a series of environments with their own set of enemies bosses and environmental pecularities and just have to survive collecting power ups by gathering the gems enemies drop.

Elden Ring

I'm not really a Dark souls person I find the gameplay mechanics somewhat frustrating the fail Die fail die fail die fail die maybe succeed die mechanic gets grating after a while and every time I've tried one of these games I've usually bounced off it fairly quickly. Even some of the dark souls like often get annoying the most recent God of War or the Jedi Fallen Order being notable examples.
