Today very nearly threatened to derail my streak. With a little over a month to go, the whole thing nearly came crashing to the ground when I tried to squeeze in a quick game of something over breakfast, and was met with a sign in error as I turned on my console.
‘It’s OK,’ I figured, ‘I’ll be able to grab a passive Windows achievement when I get to the office,’ but sure enough, the sign in error was ubiquitous to the Xbox network, and I was left a bit ‘on edge’ that it wouldn’t be working tonight. The status page showed a sea of red, and coupled with some major network outages from Telstra this morning, we were plunged into a world without technology – a terrifying thought for a digital native!
Sure enough, a bunch of very smart people fixed the problem and allowed me some game time tonight once the kids were fed and showered. I wasn’t really in the mood for anything other than God of War (I still have hopes of finishing it tonight!), so I went with Batman instead. Of course, I’m a terrible time manager, and a few minutes ended up turning into the end of the Episode (and what an ending!), and so I’ve got a nice clean starting point from where to pickup from.
There’s quite a few E3 rumours doing the rounds at the moment, which is going a long way towards spoiling any surprises on the day (like the last few years). There’s a couple of rumoured titles (on top of the semi-confirmed Splinter Cell and Just Cause 4 announcements) that get me excited. Specifically the World of Warcraft: PS4 Edition, and Diablo IV – neither of which have been confirmed, but they get my juices flowing. Time will tell – and it’s almost a certainty – whether I have uncharacteristically set my expectations too high, but even if these titles never eventuate – I want to add my little voice to the internet echo chamber to let the publishers know that I want them to happen.
