Still living and having fun in lovely Berlin, our fifth year ongoing. Work-wise, being in the right place at the right time in samedi. Kiddo 👧🏼 turned 4 this year (when did that happen? 🤯) and second one 👶🏼 is on its way (78% ready).
I’ve been meaning to read Earthsea for years now. I always had it in the back of my head that there is this series of books that I should reach out to and spend time with. I found really great edition that has all 5 books + 1 more with the short stories. I’m three books in already and am looking forward to the three upcoming. I really like Le Guin’s style of writing, although in some places it seems a bit too brief. It might be the translation but, my feeling is that those stories could have been even more epic. They are still great though 😉
Second controller arrived not long ago and we finally got some spare time to play something new on Apple Arcade. We always have loads of fun when playing co-op, so we went with Cat Quest II. It’s so much joy that it’s hard to describe. It’s easy going, but not too easy, and at the same time not hard enough to feel frustrating. If you are looking for a light-hearted RPG to play with your significant other, you can’t go wrong here (unless you hate cats). Other than that, I got back to Ni No Kuni II on the PC side of things and boy is it a great RPG…
As I suggested on the last update, The Witcher is here. Both me and my wife read the books years ago and we also, unfortunately, have seen movie and series adaptations made in 🇵🇱… It was great to see the amount of praise recent games by CD Projekt and ever since I was daydreaming about one of the big guys to pick it up and make proper, big budget series out of it. It finally happened thanks to Netflix! We are two episodes in and I can already say — this is the TV adaptation we’ve been waiting for! 🥳
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has dominated my Music.app. I have some new additions though — soundtracks for Divinity: Original Sin 2 and StarCraft II Series (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void). Elsewhere I also spoked about The Beatles Lost Album which has a prominent place in the last 30 days of my listening. More…
