Friday FTW - Bye Bye July
FTW Friday is a weekly update where I talk about what I’m planning for the blog as well as weekend gaming plans, and some other random stuff.
July comes to a close and August sees some new strategy game releases. It’s a better month, but not super busy with new games.
Honestly, I’m glad I wasn’t inundated with new strategy games. July allowed me to really set the direction for the blog. Thinking about what are the sort of articles I want to write and plan ahead.
And it’s been good. The blog has seen some pretty decent traffic, and the lengthy articles are really making an impact. I’m happy, but there’s a tonne of work to be done.
There’s also a tonne of strategy gaming to be done as well. As you read this, The Banner Saga 3 would probably be out. I’m not likely to be getting it for now.
I have The Banner Saga 1 and 2 and have not finished them, so for a game with so much emphasis on story, it doesn’t make sense for me to play The Banner Saga 3 yet.
I really did like the little I played of the first Banner Saga, but it’s going to take a lot of commitment for me to really focus on it, which is why I’ve been putting it off, for years.
But I’ll tell you one game I’m dying to play...
Two Point Hospital
The spiritual successor to Theme Hospital will be out on 30th August and it’s looking really... really good. Everything about it is very much in the spirit of the classic Theme Hospital.
I have a confession to make. I didn’t play much of Theme Hospital. It was one of those games that sort of passed by me. But I recognised it’s brilliance. I am after all a real hardcore tycoon game addict.
Planning to make up for the lack of Theme Hospital play time by getting totally hooked to Two Point Hospital when it comes out.
Warhammer 40,000 Gladius - Relics of War
Yes, I know the review of this 4X Warhammer game was supposed to be out this month. I’m still doing my best to put it out in July. I’ve played quite a bit of it and have a solid idea of what I think of it.
It’s coming soon.
Weekend Gaming. NEED MOAR FROSTPUNK!
I had the sudden urge to hop back into Frostpunk. 11 Bit Studios released a big update for the game recently adding a brand new survivor mode and photo mode.
But truth be told, survivor mode simply ain’t my thing. The regular mode is stressful enough. I need to complete all the scenarios.
Frostpunk has been one of my best gaming experience this year. I dare say, it’s one of the best game this year and should be in any best game of the year list. At least it would be for me.
Need a Proper Logo/Icon for Frags of War
If you didn’t know, I have a Facebook fan page for Frags of War which you can link and follow here. Apart from the sedate cover photo, the logo or profile picture was a rough cut and paste job I did in less than 5 minutes.
I’d like to have a really nice logo/profile image and I’m thinking of getting one done by a real graphic designer.
So that’s exciting. I’m not sure if the current profile image bothers you much, but it makes me cry... in agony. It grates on me. I’d like the new logo to be on Facebook as well as a new Twitter account specifically for this blog. Currently I’m just using my own personal twitter account.
So what are you doing for the weekend? What will you be playing? Looking forward to any new game? I’m eager to know which games interests you. Have a great weekend!
