The Professional Gamer - July 12, 2019

Hi all, hope you all had another good week. I spent some time this week with my friends on Deep Space Nine, but didn’t have a lot of time to do much else. I spent a lot of my free time this week catching up on weeding my garden and lawn. I had rather neglected things earlier this year. But, I know that isn’t going to be vary interesting to you, so we’ll talk about Star Trek instead. Of course, Dragon Quest Builders 2 came out on Friday, and while I’m not playing it myself, I have spent some time watching Crystal get started with it. So, maybe I can talk about that a bit too.

As far as DS9 goes, I’ve moved into the fourth season, where things start to get serious with the Dominion. So far, I’ve watched the season opener, and then quickly stopped so that I wouldn’t have to watch one of the saddest episodes in all of Star Trek. I’m sure I’ll watch it soon, but I just didn’t want to rush into it too much.

Crystal bought Dragon Quest Builders 2 today, and has spent most of the evening playing it. It seems like a big upgrade from the original Dragon Quest Builders, adding lots of new functionality to the game. At the same time, the small nuisances from the original game have been largely smoothed over. It makes for a more polished and enjoyable game. The humor remains very similar to the original game, but the script is also more refined, with good pacing and a fun story so far. This is a very preliminary review, but it seems good so far.

And that’s all I’ve got for this post. I hope you all have a good week and game on!
