[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 07/04/19


Hello guys,

A lot of good news on many level this week!

First of all this blog: March and April seem to be two great months for this blog. March has registered the highest number of visits since I’ve started this blog in 2016 and April looks like will top this (already high for my standards) figures.

On the gaming side I finally found that my trusted online seller has come back with a legion of games and I managed to buy like a dozen of them. Unfortunately for my wallet games have started to become more expensive, since the “fillers” are coming to an end but I secured some golden nuggets I’ll talk about in the following weeks.

On the gaming side, apart from my irretrievable addiction to Europa Universalis IV where I’m reaching the glory with my Lithuania, my gf and I have finally completed Cuphead! It hasn’t been an easy task but in the end we became quite skilled and we managed to defeat the Devil even though not without difficulties.

Finally, I’ve found a lot of time to read. And not because I actually HAD time, but because my sessions with EU4 usually last until late at night, around 1-2 a.m. and once I miss the right moment to fall asleep, I can stay awake till morning. To avoid it I usually start to read so I’ve already completed half of the mag I’m reading. Of course this means that I sleep like 4 hours per night but I can recover during the weekend 😉
