Hey.

I'm Dan. A 35 year old father of two who doesn't have nearly as much time as he needs to do half the things he wishes he had the time to do.

I mainly Toot about the following:

I guess the reason it'll have a physical release is that they want to get it into stores. As much as things are going digital, having product on stores and in front of people who otherwise might not know about it is still a pretty solid way of moving units.

I'm not sure they really fit into the category of murder mystery that you're looking for, but I recently read both The Seven Deaths if Evelyn Harcastle and The Devil and the Dark Water and absolutely loved both of them.

Ten years ago this would have been an absolute blockbuster deal. In 2023 though? One of them has turned into a journeyman and the other a player who never quite lived up to his hype.

I'm also not sure many would care. And I don't mean that to sound like they're selfish. A not insignificant number of people voted for Brexit as a means of punching the establishment in the mouth, the same establishment that had so obviously failed them in recent decades.

They were ignored and poor before, now they're still poor but at least they've been listened to.

Significantly more" were put off voting by the requirement to show ID at polling stations, the report found

Which is just great. Our electorate is already about as uninterested in the governance of our country as they could be, let's make that situation even worse.

Once scored an overhead kick during our in-school football tournament. Even got a pat on the back from one of the bigger kids.

I peaked at 9 years old.

Probably a silly question but are you using the thing on the floor as you run into the fight arena?

Finally getting around to Bloodborne on my partner's PS5. Had zero interest in these games before I gave Elden Ring a go last year, and I've been hooked since.

Finished Elden Ring last year, and Sekiro over the festive season.

How old is he might I ask?

My (now) five year old started out playing a few games I had on the PC. Very simply indie games that you just kind of felt out the movement. There was this fantastic little game where you navigate around a world full of brightly coloured bouncing balloons that she absolutely adored.

The Balloon Game in Question

Then when she was a bit older she moved onto Donut County on the Switch. She absolutely adores that one, to the point that she's beaten it on her own. I recommend that to every parent who asks.

The Outer Wilds soundtrack is something I go back to regularly. Even considered buying the Vinyl...and I have no way of playing it.

I'm still working my way through The Social Distance Between Us by Darren McGarvey. I mainly read at work, so maybe only 30 minutes a day, but I'm slowly getting through it.

I also just finished reading through George RR Martin's A World of Ice and Fire.

I think it's the heat, my kids have been absolutely awful at bedtime this last week.

The baby usually goes bed at 7, nah. He's a 8:30 sorta guy now. The five year old? She seems to have a nightmare every night.

Desperately hoping my 16 month old has a nap so I can start my next book.

I've been searching for a 'letterboxd for games' for years, and iirc that's partly what Ggapp bases it's site on. I'll absolutely give Backloggd a look though, thanks.
