Been experimenting over the past couple of days with Jekyll. I don’t know that I’ll be able to completely move my blog away from WordPress but it’s been a fun little project.

The (not so) subtle nods to Watchmen in Doomsday Clock are great. From the subtle shading of a specific character when they appear, story-within-a-story, page numbers in the bottom corners, classic 3×3 panel layout. There’s so much to unpack with each issue. 📚

Last weekend I finished up my games page, inspired by the one Tones has for books, that keeps track of the video games I’ve played in the past few years. It still needs a little work but I’m happy with it so far. 🎮

Monster Hunter: World looks awesome. I really want to try and hold off for the PC release though, shame it didn’t arrive at the same time as the console version. 🎮

Man, Wolfenstein II is a real rollercoaster of emotions. While the first game felt like it was all brawn and no brains, New Colossus feels like the total package. 🎮

Finished up the fourth episode of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within last night. While it was a little shorter than I would have liked, it sets up a pretty exciting finale for whenever episode five arrives. 🎮

Another observation from the comics I’ve been catching up on is that the new Captain America by Waid and Samnee is a blast. Haven’t had as much fun reading a Cap book in a long time. 📚

It’s become very apparent that Joëlle Jones should be drawing Batman for the foreseeable future. I love her art. 📚

And we’re off to Edmonton for the weekend!

This Micro Monday I recommend Eli Mellen. He was one of the first people I followed on Micro.blog and stands as shining example for microbloggers, sharing his technical expertise, insightful links, and heartwarming photos of his family life.

I’m calling it. I’ve tried twice on two different systems-roughly 15 hours total-but the newest DOOM game just isn’t for me. Sure, it’s better on PC, but I still found it way too repetitive. 🎮

So, after a couple of days near zero, the temperature in the city is dropping to -45°C (-49°F) this weekend. Ouch.
