    I ran Sketch for a week and a half with a broken plugin that locked up my machine every few seconds. Today, when I finally turned off the plugin, I felt like Goku stepping out of the gravity machine.

    I completed the AWE downloadable content for Control last night and, as a big fan of Alan Wake, very much enjoyed it. It makes me wonder what Remedy has planned next for their connected universe of games and if we’ll see Alan again sooner than we think.

    I’m going to tempt fate and try grabbing a PlayStation 5 tomorrow. If my previous experiences purchasing consoles online from big-box stores are any indication, this will be an unsuccessful disaster.

    I ordered a HomePod mini this morning for our basement entertainment room. I’ve been really pleased with the quality of our original HomePod when connected to the Apple TV in our living room and I’m looking forward to seeing how the mini compares.

    It’s only Monday and I’m already going through a serious case of imposter syndrome. Between that and everything else happening this week, it’s going to be a long one.

    At the recommendation of Dominik Höcht, I’ve started using GG to track the games I’ve played, the ones in my backlog, etc. It’s a great service with apps for iOS and Android, created and maintained by a one-man team. I recommend giving it a look.

    After a few weeks of quarantine, the family and I went to the store and came home with a handful of games we’d missed. My wife grabbed Crash Bandicoot 4 on PS4, and Paper Mario for Switch. I gave in and picked up Avengers or, as my son calls it, “Hulk game”.

    I grabbed Bog Bodies on sale today through comiXology. I wouldn’t say it’s a scary book but definitely something I’d recommend reading on the lead up to Halloween. I love Gavin Fullerton’s art.

    Looks like we didn’t have to wait long for Reeder 5 after all. The new version is available now for iOS, iPadOS and macOS. Been playing around with it this afternoon and, like the previous versions, I love it.

    It’s been interesting getting to revisit Mafia with the definitive edition. I owned the original back when it first came out in 2002 so I can certainly appreciate the visual updates. The controls however seem to have been brought back from the early 2000s without much attention given to tightening them up.
