Couple of games from the End of Year deals have my attention. Call of Duty: World War II, and Call of Cthulhu, which one?

October 2019 Round UpPermalink
What’s up gamers?!? Another month down brings us another blog post. October is always one of my favorite months. The weather changes, leaves fall, making a mad dash to complete those last minute outside projects, Halloween, and lots of other great things. This October was no different.

On the 4th of October I bid farewell to the store and great Associates that I have worked with over the past 2 years. I will definitely miss that place as I made some great memories and accomplished a lot of great things within that community.

Before I started at my new store the family and I took a trip to Washington DC. Between being a retired Veteran and a history buff, I had an amazing time. The family loved it and we made some great memories. I think the Jefferson Memorial was my favorite thing, I was a little upset that it was under construction but it was still a site to behold.

I was able to get quite a bit accomplished around the house. I winterized the pool, tore out the planter boxes and fence in the back corner of my yard that my bull busted through over the summer, tilled it up, leveled it, and put up new fencing. I also stored my grill which was heart-breaking. I still need to stain my kids swing set but the cold weather has taken over so I’m not sure if it will get finished until spring.

This month is also my wedding anniversary month and the wife and I took a couple of days to party in Knoxville, TN. She is a huge Thomas Rhett fan and he was putting on a concert there so we went out and had a great time. He really put on a great concert as did the others that was touring with him. The rest of the night was quite the blur but we made it to the hotel safely and overall had an amazing time.

This month we watched tons of movies! Mostly scary movies that we watch every year or Halloween themed that we watch with the kiddos. New movies that we watched this month was the new Child’s Play and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Both movies were enjoyable and I recommend RedBox’ing both of them if you are the least bit interested.

With leaving one store of course I am going to another. The store I promoted too is four times the size of my previous store as far as sales and structure. So far it is an amazing ride and I’m really enjoying myself, and like the people I work with. Hopefully this is the next step in getting my own store. I have a lot to do in order to get this store turned around but hey, that’s what I do. I go into stores that lacking process and fix it. This one is going to take a while!

Enough jibberish about all the boring stuff I’ve done all month that doesn’t revolve around gaming:

The games I played were:

MediEvil Demo: Great fun that screams nostalgia!

Borderlands 3: Started this bad boy up. I tried to get off Pandora as fast as I could because it has nothing as far as guns; however, my level 5-character sucks against a level 8 Boss. So now I find myself doing the side missions to build my character up.

MediEvil: I’ve been enjoying this way too much! Between this and Resident Evil 2 I feel like it’s 1998 all over again. And like RE2 I find myself spending way too much time looking at the scenery and environment.

I’m not planning anything specific for the month. I will definitely be playing MediEvil. I still have Borderlands 3, Uncharted, Contra Anniversary Collection, and a few other games that I have been itching to jump into. I’m also considering changing PSN ID to match up with my Xbox ID and starting up a Twitter account to match and link my TT and TA too it. That would mean a joint blog and I could also do my movie reviews and just publish them through these blogs.

Let me know what everyone else is doing this month. Gaming, movies, TV, hobbies doesn’t matter. Just sound off below and feel free to follow me on here or Twitter @JAdamGilman. Happy gaming!

Slayer1189 Autumn is also my favourtie season for sure! Love it every year and this year no exception smile

Sounds like you had a busy month around the house and surrounding land! On top of a couple of little holidays! Always good to get a break away and sounds like you had a great time.

Never been to the USA but there is one thing I have always wanted to do in the US, which is to descend the Grand Canyon and visit Supai smile.

Good to hear you are enjoying the new position and working towards a store of your own! Also, we have a similar skill set in that respect. I also look at things that are lacking process and fix it. I have considered offering the service to more businesses but I think it works better for me to keep it small scale and focused.

Funny thing is I actively enjoy setting up streamlined processes and making things more efficient and people are normally wierded out by that. Much the same as they find it strange like I like researching charts/trends/graphs and quite enjoy work days where I don't interact with another human and sit with my charts laugh

Have fun with your gaming projects. I look forward to Meidevil and also need to go back to RE2 at some point as I only finished Leon's "A" campaign near the start of the year.

Happy gaming toast

JAdamGilman I have flown over the Grand Canyon and did a helicopter tour which was quite enjoyable. What is it about Supai that has you wanting to visit? The wife and I are attempting all 50 states plus a few specific areas. After we complete that list we will begin our overseas touring. I have a leg up on her with seeing the world as I traveled quite a bit in the military.

Individuals at my new store are extremely excited about getting on process and operating correctly. They seem a bit disappointed when I give them the timeframe yet it’s still encouraging for them.

MediEvil is a blast so far. I need to go back to RE2 as well. I just set up some of my older systems so I can revisit some of my older favorites.

Slayer1189 For Supai I just find it interesting that there even is a village at the bottom of the Canyon and how isolated it is even compared to the rest of the US. Plus if I am descending the Canyon anyway it makes for a decent experience to add on to the trip.

Much like you focusing on the USA, I have travelled around a fair but of Europe but never further, though I expect that to change soon enough! I would like my first time leaving Europe to be by crossing the bosphorus bridge
