The Professional Gamer - August 24, 2015

I hope everyone is ready for another week at work (at least for those of us who have landed on the Monday through Friday schedule).  I know that I am.  The weekend was spent backpacking with my buddy.  But, you all came here to read about geeky activities, not about walking around under the Yellow Face.  Read on to find out how I spent my time this week.

Reading: Again, reading has generally taken a backseat to most other activities this week.  While I am away in the woods, I'm planning to read at least another volume of Pretty Guardian: Sailor Moon, but I will leave that discussion until next week.

Playing: I've split my gaming time this week between playing Hyrule Warriors with Crystal and Elite: Dangerous on my own.  In Elite, I just purchased a new ship.  I opted for the Hauler, which many fan have dubbed the space van.  It may not be exciting to fly, but I'm hoping it can make me some cash via trading.

Watching: Doctor Who continues to be the viewing choice at my house.  I recently watch "Mummy on the Orient Express", and I have to say that it is my favorite episode so far this season.  Although the Doctor is still acting like a blowhard, we at least see some reason for it in this episode.  And maybe we understand a bit better why Clara is willing to endure his barbs so that she can participate in the adventures.  The pacing of this episode was also better than the last few have been.  I hope this episode marks a turning point for the season, and that we get some more great episodes out of it.

Farewell for another week.  Keep up with you geekiness, and I will do the same.  Have a great week, and Game On!
