Media Diet – May 2023

May started off a hot mess with me playing the thoroughly mediocre Redfall. Redfall just might be the worst game I’ve had the displeasure of actually playing in a long long time. But hey, at least I only had to pay for a month of Xbox Games Pass to play it and wasn’t one of those poor souls who bought the game full price.

It improved a bit from there, I watched the second season of The Legend of Vox Machina which I think was kind of “eh”. I am not entirely sure I’ll watch the third season whenever that comes out. Probably because I’ll forget about the show’s existence by the time the third season comes out.

I also watched a movie with some folks on a Discord server I’m on: The Menu (2022) which was a decent time. Made better by Anya Taylor-Joy’s presence. Whew lord.

The rest of the month has been devoured by me playing the newly released Zelda game, Tears of the Kingdom. The open world sicko in me is enjoying the open world aspect of the game. A lot of my criticisms of the previous game BOTW still apply to this game and in those ways, the game can still be annoying to play. A 7/10 game as JSS put it.

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

Media Diet – April 2023

April was heavy on TV shows. I started off the month with a watch of Cyberpunk Edgerunners. Later in the month I also watched the first season of The Legend of Vox Machina and the first season of Reacher. This upcoming month I am planning on watching the second season of The Legend of Vox Machina.

I also finished Resident Evil 4 Remake, the first Resident Evil game that I’ve played and I enjoyed it greatly. This upcoming month I plan on playing the Resident Evil 2 remake and if I make quick work of that, the remake for 3 as well.

As far as music go, this month was dominated by the luxury lifestyle raps of Larry June and his latest album The Greatest Escape. Larry isn’t the most interesting or technically proficient rapper but he has a particular niche cornered and he is very good at that.

In May I also want to do a bit more reading of books, there are a couple books sitting in my queue collecting dust (metaphorically speaking, they are ebooks).

See y’all next month!

Review – Resident Evil 4 Remake

I’ve had a cursory interest in the Resident Evil franchise ever since Resident Evil 7. I’ve watched people play that game along with the Resident Evil 2 remake. But until this particular remake, I never played a RE game myself mostly because I have never been one for horror games. The remake for Resident Evil 4 however piqued my interest. Through various channels I had heard that RE4 definitely leans more into its action rather than its horror.
