Media Diet – November 2023

A bit of a lighter month as far as media goes.

I didn’t read any books but I did a lot of reading of online articles which you can find here and here. I just didn’t find any of the books in my queue particular appealing. I do have a plan to get out of this reading slump in December. Fingers crossed it works out.

I watched one movie. It was a fun time.

I started going through the backlog of a podcast I haven’t heard before, its Myths Baby, a podcast about Greek and Roman mythology. I have been enjoying it so far but by god do I hate dynamically inserted ads and the amount in this podcast is a bit obnoxious.

Video games were meh this month. None of the games I was playing were particularly enjoyable. Cities: Skylines 2 is a buggy mess which means I don’t feel like playing it. Jusant was pretty but I got stuck at a certain point and I uninstalled the game after that point. RE4: Separate Ways also had a high annoyance factor that led to me not finish it.

The only game that was somewhat enjoyable were the few rounds of quick play I did in Overwatch 2. Yeah, this month’s a bit dire for video games.

That’s all from me this month, see y’all next month.
