Sorry about getting this out a couple of days late! I was out of town and didn’t have the free time that I thought I would. It was a busy week with some good articles and good games. Let’s get to it!
What I’m Playing
The Endwalker expansion for FFXIV nears ever closer. So I’m trying to tie up loose ends and chase the highest tier of loot I can for my main while leveling up my alts.
Outriders saw a new update and it is phenomenal. The campaign for Outriders was better than it had any right to be and it was a shame the endgame was as poor as it was. But, People Can Fly have fixed that and even teased a new expansion. And for now, at least, it would appear Outriders is my looter shooter of choice.
Forza Horizon 5 is phenomenal. It took me back to my time spent with the first in the Horizon series and I’m in love. In fact, it’s the entire reason why I subscribed to Xbox Game Pass again. I need a little more variety in my games and this looks to be the way to do it.
What I’m Watching
Not much. My list of things to watch keeps growing and I’m just not getting around to it. I’m just never in the mood to watch something, you know? But, I should buckle down this week and at least binge Arcane and Cowboy Bebop and finish off Midnight Mass. I did also sign up for Crunchyroll as part of the Xbox Game Pass perks, so I’ll probably weeb it up as well.

I know it’s not a drawing, but I’ve not really drawn anything. Instead, I took a pretty picture.
