Apologies for the lateness of this week in review; I’ve been very busy over the past few days.
If you’ve been following our social media accounts, you might know that OnlySP is currently undergoing a server migration as we move to full integration with Enthusiast Gaming. Because of this, anything we post between December 29 and the date of completion (currently expected to be on Monday) will be wiped, meaning that it will have to be republished. To reduce the possibility of double posts, I put a moratorium on the publication of any content other than our Most Anticipated Games of 2017, which we have been counting down all week. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Scalebound, Nioh, Valkyria Revolution, Yooka-Laylee, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, and Tacoma make up the list so far, and two are left. If you have any guesses as to what they are, feel free to let us know in the comments.
The only other article we’ve published this week is the first of our new essay format, in which I examined Skyrim within the context of the sociological concepts of structure and agency. I think it’s an interesting read, but then, of course I would. If you liked it, DJ Arruda has another similar article in the works that we’ll be publishing in the near future. We are also anticipating getting back to regular news coverage later this week, once we get word that the servers have been switched over.
The highlight of my week was that my partner and I had to fly to Brisbane on Thursday and Friday to organise some personal stuff. While down there, we had a look through the cultural centre, which had some very interesting artworks and exhibits, and spent most of the rest of the time just wandering around and taking in the sights of the city. Given that where we live is much smaller with much less pleasant weather, it was fun to visit.
In other news, I’ve continued playing Planet Coaster and begun Nier ahead of the sequel’s release later this year. I also finished the book I was reading, which was called Finding Queensland in Australian Cinema by Allison Craven. I’m currently working on a review for that for an academic journal. So yes, a busy week, and I’m hopeful that things calm down again soon.
Let us know what you’ve been up to. Until next time, single players, have a great week.
