(5/5) Frozen Wilds takes all the fun stuff in the original game and adds a bit more to it. You get a few more weapons. You get some new skills. There are a couple of new challenge formats. And even though I was eventually 20 levels higher than the highest quest level, it was still a very enjoyable challenge.
(4 of 5 stars) The oddly flat style of art and a control layout that I found rather awkward gave me a bad first impression of this game, but I’m glad I stuck with it because it ended up being a lot of fun. The story is only so-so, but I enjoyed the new game mechanics. Critics will likely complain that missions are repetitious, but that’s a hallmark of the series by now, right?
(3 of 5 stars) It’s an open-world, non-canon, slash-and-stab, role-playing game with a weak story and repetitive action. I enjoyed the first game even though it has some of the same weaknesses, but that game had the self-respect to wrap up quickly before I got sick of it.
Learn and practice listening to foreign languages with News in Slow. The episodes are short (usually <10 minutes) and the speakers go over current events and then do a quick language lesson. It's quick, interesting, relevant, and helpful. Oh. And the speakers speak VERY slowly so learners like me can follow along.
OK. I’ve overextended myself a bit on my podcast subscriptions. My last batch of subscriptions included both several that update frequently, but several that have longer episodes. This makes getting through everything much more difficult.
So, anyway, here are updates I’ve made to my podcast subscription list.
