Gooood morning Destructoid! Chrono here to once again remind you it's that wonderful time of the week. It's Friday! We made it!
My phone interview went well enough to score a second interview! This time, it will be a video interview with 4 different people at two different times...Exciiiiited for that weirdness lol I aim to impress though as I'd be fully remote with this job and actually making a bit more then what I'm making now. Just really hoping they have their shit together as a company as the last few months have been a wild ride in a not so fun kinda way.
I beat Death Stranding earlier in the week and yeah, I mostly liked it. It's fucking weeeird but in a good way. The story is confusing but makes sense in a Kojima sort of way. Some of the boss fights were annoying but I still liked their design...they just were not the most fun to get past. I'm glad I pushed through the slog of an opening the game throws at you for the first 3 chapters. Really started clicking halfway through chapter 3.
I also picked up Cult of the Lamb earlier this week even though I told myself I'd wait for a sale. I caved. Happy I did too as the dev team has already sold 1 million copies. That's huge for a small team! Really happy for them. The game itself is full of charm. Another cute roguelike but with "city" building mechanics where you build up your cult and tell your followers what to do and hold all sorts of weird rituals. Managing your followers was actaully really fun and the rougelike part of it wasn't the best, but it was good enough to remain fun. I just beat it last night and I love the boss designs they through at me. Good stuff all around.
I'm relaxing this weekend as the gf has hair appointments and other stuff that I'm going to happily stay home for lol Going to play some more games, play with the pups and just chill. We have big plans for the next weekend so I'll enjoy my relaxing time while I have it.
