I’ll be honest, it was hard to get the engines fired up again after the Christmas + new year’s break, but eventually I managed.
My wife and I are planning to travel around a bit more this year, and that process has gotten us excited. Hope to tell more about that next month!
At Boords, we’re still working away at some bigger stuff that’s going to be released in the next few months. Can’t say much about it.
The habit of studying and practising Sound Design has sadly moved a bit to the background this month because of other responsibilities that have been taking up more time than I’d like. That stuff will pass, though, and I’m looking forward to the time when I can continue.
It Takes Two
My wife and I have been playing the game It Takes Two this month, which has been a constant delight for us. In a way, it keeps on giving. I didn’t really have any expectations at all, but it was longer than I expected.
It also switches up the gameplay regularly, from typical 3d platforming, to chase scenes, flying, puzzles, time manipulation, and more.
It’s so rich, polished, and a bit cheeky. Just lovely. Absolutely worth the awards that it got.
There are not that many interesting and well-made co-up games out there, but this certainly belongs on that list (Portal 2’s co-up mode is on there as well).
Because we’ve been spending a lot of time over at our parents over the last two months, we haven’t gotten to a lot of nice stuff that got released recently, so January was about that for us.
We watched the 2nd season of The Witcher, which we both really enjoyed. I just really like the overall atmosphere and characters. The 2nd season of The World According To Jeff Goldblum was also released, and that’s just great as well. Perfect breakfast show.
Then there’s Queer Eye, I wrote about this before and how it’s just a lovely human show. It’s great.
We also started watching Arcane (it looks and sounds so good), continued our watch of Will & Grace, and started the show Superstore (because of a strong recommendation by my sister).
We also watched Encanto this month, which looks amazing and has a nice story. It was good, except for these fucking musical songs that just take away any character nuance and just makes the whole thing so much cheaper/basic. Not as bad as with Frozen II, but still…
Still listening to Andy Serkis’s rendition of The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.
