So, has everybody recovered from their E3 hangovers? Aside from more of the same, I was really excited to awesome new games like No Man’s Sky, Little Big Planet 3 and Ori And The Blind Forest. Granted we don’t have an Xbox One and probably won’t be getting one anytime soon, but it’s always nice seeing those unexpected gems among all the shooty-shooty kill time. Not that I don’t love that too, but variety is the spice of life, no?

Other than that it’s been a pretty quiet week. I finally got to choose my class in Habit RPG (Mage, in case you were wondering), been keeping up with my workouts and devouring all my recent comic purchases.

    I don’t know if I’ve recovered from my E3 hangover ._. I don’t know if I will for a bit. It always gets me so excited for the new games that I can’t even handle it.
