This Week: Business as Usual
I swear I'm still playing games, even if it's just ten-minute bursts of pinball at a time. I've also been playing more Euro Truck Simulator 2, where for the first time, I narrowly escaped death from lack of sleep. This would be in-game, just to be perfectly clear. If you told 10-year-old me that in twenty years, I would be hardcore into Star Wars-themed pinball and a game about hauling freight across Europe, I would have been very, very depressed. Curious too, but mostly depressed.
Of course, today, we know better. Pinball is awesome. Star Wars is awesome. And truck driving is indeed quite awesome. This week, we talk about these awesome things and more. Here's what you have to look forward to.
