Rain, Really, Go AWAY

Nothing like a little rain!

Table of Contents

I’m trying to pick the MOST OPTIMAL weekend for us to try and get out of state for a night. So far, the major roadblock has been that the two weekends in question seem full of RAIN, which I was trying to avoid. I want to cram in as much sightseeing as possible- and while a rainy day may mean fewer tourists, it also lessens the probability that Becca will leave the hotel room and slog through rain & mud with me.

Right now, I may try for this weekend, with various fall-themed events and one day entirely dedicated to rain, or I can roll the dice on next week’s forecast, shaping up into something a little less soggy.

Choices, choices.

Don’t forget to get your ass to Steam this week for Next Fest!

Let’s jump into the past week!

🏕️ Hashtag Survival Catchup

📝 So, I mentioned last time that I was scrapping the old WordPress game directory that Hashtag used to utilize. We’ve had it a long time! This is a huge work in progress, but I’m considering using Notion to house the database with slightly different filters and notes. You can view the work-in-progress database at this link.
Remember that each game card is incomplete unless the card face says Page Status: Complete. I’m the furthest along on the dead/abandoned games, but I hope to finish the other stuff soon. Feedback is incredibly welcome, so hop into the comments or contact me on Discord.

❣️Noteworthy Last Week

Tribe: Primitive Builder is pairing with various games to provide game packages for their release on October 12th. Your best bet is snagging the game bundled with Survival: Fountain of Youth and avoiding the one boxed with Devil’s Island.

📅 Upcoming

🔮 Infection Free Zone will be deactivating the demo and releasing a Prologue on October 19th- I recommend checking it out. Smalland is shifting to a 1.0 release on December 7th- it’ll also be released to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Undying moves into 1.0 on October 17th.

💙 Diversions

🎵 Music: Mostly giant rambling playlists of ODESZA.

‌➡️ Most Used: My LOCHBY gear.

‌📚 Fun Consumption: I just started this book, and it seems like it will be an adventure! “In a matter of weeks, Massachusetts has been overrun by an insidious rabies-like virus that is spread by saliva. But unlike rabies, the disease has a terrifyingly short incubation period of an hour or less. Those infected quickly lose their minds and are driven to bite and infect as many others as they can before they inevitably succumb.”

Survivor Song

‌🎮 Game: Mostly WoW, though this week there’s a ton of demos to try out as part of Next Fest!

‌#️⃣ Best Hashtag Moment: Progress on the new database is much easier than the previous iteration. Please continue to provide feedback!
