So for the past few weeks I’ve slowly been letting my life crumble into ruin, and having a glorious time while doing so. Why?
Because I’ve got a new video game.
I was really excited about it coming out, and pre-ordered it off Amazon. Imagine my horror when I get an email to say the delivery has been delayed by a month because they didn’t have enough of the games in stock.
So I did what any sane person would do in my situation: I drove for an hour, crossed the border to the Republic and bought it in Dundalk.
I regret nothing.
The game is so slick. I instantly fell in love with the entire look of it, from the opening credits to the bloody start menu- the game is dripping with style. Never mind the fact that it’s set in Japan and is essentially about levelling up a group of teenagers with superpowers. Add in the unbelievably cool acid jazz soundtrack and one month later you’ve got a very happy Michael, 70 hours in.
So I’m trying very hard to still go outside, to still go to work and still speak to other humans. But I mean come on.
