What’s Up #11!

I have a feeling that I’ll be keeping the written format through the rest of the year to at least get a routine back. Meanwhile, I’ll iron out some of the recording issues like lighting and whatnot with a few trials and maybe set up and such. However, here we are. I promised to get back on a weekly basis even if it won’t be that exciting but I think its a nice cleanser from some of the focused bits on reviews on whatever form of entertainment and as this project always was to bring together all my projects and give an idea on what I’m doing even if I don’t review the stuff right away.

Let’s jump right in!

READING

Archie Vol.4

  • Archie, Vol.4 by Mark Waid

I can multitask like a crazy person but I only have one pair of eyes so if I choose movies then I don’t get to read. I did reach my Goodreads Challenge for this year so anything else is just extra. As I figure out my December reading list, I’m filling in with some lighter things like graphic novels. I have a nice idea for 2019 reading right now that I’m shaping together. At least something is coming together, right?

PLAYING

Piffle

  • Piffle
  • Scriptum

I haven’t had time for gaming for the reason based on my WATCHING section below and the only having a pair of eyes that I mentioned above so I’ve mostly been playing mobile games, before bedtime or on the bus or whatnot. Piffle has been my main focus this past week. However, I’ve been trying to figure out a space to successfully finish a play through of Scriptum which is an augmented reality room escape. Its a pretty neat idea that I think needs a few bug fixes but it essentially scans your room and turns it into the game space to do the room escape. I’ll talk about it more in the upcoming mobile game roundup.

WATCHING

Fugue

  • Hammer of the Gods
  • Montreal Dead End
  • Deadsight
  • The Hoard
  • Fugue

Nothing like a film festival to give a nice kick in the behind to bump up movie watching time, right? I’ll talk about the whole remote coverage experience in the upcoming Weekly Adventures. My pick out of these goes to Fugue and honorable mention would go to Deadsight. I’m still working on Fugue’s review mostly because its hard to avoid spoilers so I’m struggling with it but it should be up soon.

TV BINGING

An Oriental Odyssey

  • An Oriental Odyssey (Huace Web Series)
  • The Final Table (Netflix Originals)
  • The Inn (Season 2, Hunan TV)
  • Who’s the Murderer (Season 4, Hunan TV)

Everything I’m watching is currently playing either on a Youtube channel or released in full on Netflix. However, I spent a lot of time catching up with An Oriental Odyssey and it gave me a day of both sad tears that lead to bawling and tears of joy from just how hilarious some of the scenes were. I think there’s 2 weeks and a day left of episodes before the series ends. I usually wait for the end of the weekend to binge the 6 episodes released but I’m not sure if I can resist at this part of the series. We’ll see. I have my eyes on another series afterwards to start. With that said, I’m always eager to start Netflix Original global competition shows so I’ve started watching The Final Table. At this point, I’m halfway through the competition so should be done soon and prioritize the TV Binge since I have a few thoughts on it already.

That’s it for this What’s Up!
I’m slowly moving out of the Chinese TV series phase (kind of, but not really)
However, I have a few ideas related to the direction of the blog in 2019 that came up this week which I’m considering how to implement.

What have you been reading, playing, watching and binging?
