Media Diet – February 2023

A month without much media diversity as I’d like. No movie, no TV shows. I didn’t continue with Supernatural or Kakumei.

I did play two new video games – Hi-Fi Rush and Season both of which I enjoyed. I also finished up the Blood and Wine DLC of The Witcher 3 which means my second playthrough of The Witcher 3 is now completed. I am still process what I thought of it and I hope to write a post about that Soon ™.

Speaking of new games, I bought and played Returnal for an hour and a half before I returned it. Just wasn’t really feeling it mechanically which is important to me when it comes to rogue lites. Disappointing because I was looking forward to playing it for years.

I also bought and started the Metroid: Prime remaster. I am not sure if I will continue and finish the game or leave it unfinished. Some parts of the game are really not meshing well with how I play games. If I do finish it, it will be in March and there should be a review up for it as well.

As far as music goes, I have been listening to a lot of the new Skrillex album Quest for Fire. It is quite excellent. I also like the new Kelela and Don Toliver albums, both of which are good for a certain kind of vibe.

I have also been listening to KEXP’s new podcast called 50 Years of Hip-Hop. It is a great listen if you are a hip-hop head like me. I am learning bits of hip-hop history I never new. Highly recommend it.

That is all from me this month, see y’all later.
