Greetings Darling TAY’ers. Greetings.

It has been a chaotic month, life and continues to be that way. But here I am once more. Battleborn has been dealt with. [Reminder to self: Secure the pod with two padlocks instead of one.]

I’ve been in a gaming funk, mostly due to the fact that I haven’t had time. But also, all these games and I just don’t even know what I want to play. It started off okay. I played Mario + Rabbids at the beginning of the year, which was excellent. Then I played SteamWorld Dig 2 which was relaxing and good but also...man, the sci-fi creepiness to it was surprising! As you can tell, I didn’t play the first or knew anything about it really.

But then, it came time for me to choose a game as my portable outing once more. Usually by now I’d be nearing the end of a JRPG but I passed on Xenoblade 2 which would have been my handheld contender. As some of you may know, Xenoblade the series isn’t my thing but I’m willing to try this new one (when it goes on sale). I won’t say just yet what I decided on but it’s been a struggle to play because when I’m not very busy or distracted, I’m thinking about hunting all the meownsters.

I’m a Monster Hunter noob. The fact that I couldn’t play when it first came out means I’m behind most but put some time into it this weekend. Listen though, even if I’m not playing Monster Hunter World, I’m seeing monsters in everything that I need to hunt.

The two chicken dinos I ate this morning? I bit of the head off the T-rex first and thought about those Anjanath weapons I need to make to take down the Kirin.

The Cheetos paws I ate over the weekend?

The preview for the new Jurassic Park movie that I saw before the fantastic Black Panther? I was in the theatre thinking about armour sets I could carve outta those dinosaurs.

I’m not the one with the problem! You’re the ones who aren’t looking at your food, movie previews, and life the right Monster Hunter way.
