A time machine, if you please

It is going to be very difficult to find things to talk about for the next two weeks. Battlefield 4 has already been shipped off. Shoot Many Robots was free and is just amusing enough to fill the hours. There is a difficulty spike coming that will force me to either farm previous levels for bolts or spend actual money on pretend currency for a game that I did not pay for. Neither of those are going to happen.

Out of boredom I have gone back on two previous statements.

1. I decided when season 2 of The Walking Dead came out that I was not going to touch it until all of the episodes were available. That will be broken tonight.

2. It has been many, many years since I have played a Need for Speed game. So long that I do not remember why it was added to my shit list in the first place. It is one of the only non-sports retail launch titles that I have not played so on to the list it goes.

When my free month of Playstation Plus expired I did not renew it. The only thing I lost was access to Resogun. As good as that game is I decided that it could wait until there were more reasons to pony up the cash for two premium online services. This month's free PS4 game is Don't Starve. I have no interest in Don't Starve for the same reason that I couldn't get into Minecraft and hated Little Big Planet. There is not enough game present in these sandboxes to keep me interested. Including building tools as a bonus is one thing but making the player completely responsible for the game's content is another. Imagine buying Unreal Tournament and all that came in the box was the dev tools. This is not my idea of a good time.

In two more weeks when I still have nothing to play I will most likely cave, renew my subscription, play Don't Starve for an hour and then immediately regret my decision.
