Dead on Arrival #7
I shall elucidate.
"You used to be much more..."muchier." You've lost your muchness."
-The Mad Hatter to Alice
That pretty much encapsulates how I've felt the past week. The holiday weekend stalled out much of the forward motion on my car, post accident. I've been feeling less than well, so I've mainly been sticking to the bedroom -in the most non fun way possible. Though I guess it has been good for my tv & movie streaming, since I've been working my way through my backlog.
I've also been working on an idea for a 'cascading' importance list on my ToDoist, of items I want to work on- kinda like an ocean of ideas. So I toss crap on there as it appears - or appeals- to me, and then I can arrange things depending on what I can get done or feel I need. Content pool! Newly added, get next weeks DoA out on Monday as is proper.
Onwards to the newsletter.
🏕️ Hashtag Survival Catchup
🎉 Alright, so the Memorial Day sales are probably over (you never know because half the time they get extended a few days)- but it's still worth checking out some of the amazing companies I linked in my post about great sales!
🖥️ Above Snakes was moved from the upcoming directory to the game index. Another giveaway was completed in the community Discord, with a member snagging a key for Biomutant. I adjusted the latest giveaway benchmarks for the social media accounts and added back Twitter. (Though I still want to set that platform on fire.) Becca's just about done with her Frostpunk review, and Dee is working her way through Veil of Dust.
🎉 Be a pal and vote in this poll for me-gathering some info!
❣️Noteworthy Last Week
⌛ Kinda neat that Stranded: Alien Dawn works to provide players with a guide as they get started. Voidtrain is still a solid Mixed on Steam- looks like they're dumping in a ton of content for summer. Oldowan and Above Snakes have been released! This Snippets here had an interesting video clip from Rooted and a neat flamethrower coming to Mist Survival. Speaking of Rooted, is the playtest in June? I continue to be terrified by Forewarned. Life Not Supported will release into Early Access on 26/06/23 at 16:01 UTC. Much respect for Hinterland.
🔮 Nightingale sent out invitations to 10k folks to playtest the game! Solarpunk is slaying their Kickstarter launch- good luck! Green Hell is on a crazy deep discount until June 11th. Gird your loins! Steam Next Fest is June 19 - June 26 @ 10:00 AM Pacific.
💙 Last Week!
Music: Favorite Dave Matthews song paired with a tie for my favorite Final Fantasy game. (YouTube)
App or Item: Hands down, the past week it's been Todoist
Book: Jill Mansell writes quirky and upbeat British RomCom books-they have been the perfect companion for a week spent in bed. (Not fun in bed, sick in bed.)
Game: SCUM. I am loving some aspects (reworked vehicles, cooking, money) and hate the fucking bugs that have popped up lately.
Best Hashtag Moment: Receiving PMs on Reddit and Discord complimenting the website directories!
