Let's talk about the week ahead of us!
Soooooooo I guess I should watch Parasite?
My attention span isn't great enough to watch a movie that's completely in subtitles which is the same reason I don't read as many books as I should - my mind tends to wander or I get distracted and I miss what's going on - I'm more of an audio/visual learner after last night, the support that Parasite got from the crowd as well as everyone I know of that has seen it, I think I really need to give it a shot.
Or just wait for HBO to Americanize it. Which they are, by the way.
Aside from that, I'm about to watch Kidding's season premiere shortly which I'm really excited about and I've got about 4 hours left in Jedi Fallen Order which will feel good to cross off my list. Speaking of games though - are we going to get a Nintendo Direct this week? It sure feels like it's time. Early prediction from me are Mario Golf, Mario Kart 9, Splatoon 3 and some Wii U ports. Let's goooooo!
This week though, honestly, nothing excites me until Friday which is mainly why I'm hoping we get a Nintendo Direct to look forward to. But for Valentine's Day we're looking at new albums from Tame Impala and Justin Bieber which I'm anticipating for very different reasons. Tame Impala I'm excited for because yo, it's just straight up going to be one of the best albums of the year because they're just straight up one of the best bands out there right now. Where the Bieber thing - I know it's going to be a pretty paint-by-the-numbers record filled with corny puns and Instagram references but what can I say, the kids got a good voice and I've always rooted for him despite his shaky attitude.
On top of that we've got Dreams finally releasing as a complete game (or on Tuesday if you were part of the Beta) alongside their 2-3 hour campaign called Art's Dream. Truth be told, this game isn't a game - instead it's one of the greatest accomplishments in media. And that isn't hyperbole - it truly is magnificent and the possibilities within this game are actually endless. If you haven't checked it out yet or if you've ever been interested in game design, pick this up on Friday - I promise you won't regret it.
Also on Friday the new High Fidelity series drops on Hulu, Darksiders Genesis lands on consoles and Sonic The Hedgehog (FINALLY) hits theaters. I think I'm actually going to check it out also - it looks like a fun little movie and nothing else good is coming out so fuck it. Gotta go fast!
And lastly, that Duncanville show on Fox premieres on Sunday which could be good. Amy Poehler's involved and who doesn't love her? So it seems worth the peep.
That's it, guys - cross those piggies for a Direct this week and listen to The Morning Brew! This weeks episode is truly one of our all time best.
