[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 03/03/19


Hello guys,

I’m back from an horrible 4-days fever that kicked my ass in the first part of the week. Oddly enough, the relief came when I started playing again europa Universalis IV. You remember? I’ve abandoned it two years ago while I was dominating Europe with Italy. The playthrough of EU IV was one of my first – alas abandoned – projects. I don’t know why I’ve actually stop playing this game since it’s a genre I love but now that I’m playing again hopefully I’ll complete the scenario. For the moment I kicked Austria ass for 10 years and France for other 10 years and I gained a lot of territories. The only thing to check is if I will keep all of them and avoid the turmoils.

It looks like nobody has had anything interesting to sell lately: no games and no consoles, at least at a decent price. Probably they’re all out in the sunshine and they don’t fell like selling anything :/

From tomorrow I’ll be off from work for a week so I can use this time to catch up a bit with my backlog and, of course, to spend some time with my love. I already have all of the posts scheduled for the week so I can completely turn off my brain for seven days! 🙂
