Because my new favorite non-traditional game-mode is to play a single player game while someone I know is playing the same game, I took a week or two and replayed Deus Ex: Human Revolution while Nicole had her first experience with it. Then, I went back to playing Titanfall, which I had been playing fairly non-stop since it came out.
I went back to playing Titanfall after all of the college kids were back in their dorms and the high school kids were back from camp or juvenile detention or wherever they go during the summer.
I went back to TitanFall and got destroyed
Or for a few days, anyway. Holy crap, as much as I love this game (and the updates that they are keeping coming at a good rate), if you stop playing, the return-curve difficulty is high. The fact that dorm rooms are now full of people blowing off class and putting in 40 hours a week on getting their pilots to Generation 10 means that for people like me, I’m going to have to be happy with a just-over 1.0 K/D ratio and enjoy stomping on dudes with my giant, canon-armed robot.
I’ve hit the soft level cap in Destiny and, while I’ll keep the rest of my opinions to myself on Bungie’s Big Game, I think I’m going to have to prepare myself for another pasting at the hands of some sophomore at Kent State this weekend.
