Have you ever sheared a lug from your cars hub? You know...the stud that hangs out that you put the lug nuts on that holds the wheel to the car? No? Count yourself lucky. I changed the oil in the kids cars and did the tire swap on Saturday. As an aside...winter tires a game changer...truly. Anyway, last nut on the last wheel on the oldest spawn’s vehicle and the fucking thing sheared right off. When she bought the car, having the winters and All seasons was a big plus but whomever dingleberry got to do his tire swap must have used a high torque impact wrench or something. Jesus Christ those things were on there! I was jumping on that wrench on pretty much all of them! Pro-tip - Torque your nuts to around 105ft/lbs. Its a little +/- depending on tire size but 100-105 and your good. Anyway, I was jumping and then snap! I kinda knew what happened immediately but when I picked up that nut and saw the lug stuck inside it sheared off from the hub..well...I had a lot things to say. None of it good.
Luckily, I got a hold of a mobile mechanic and he was able to get a lug and nut, get to my house, pull the rotor, pull the old lug and fix it all up in under an hour! As great as that was, the point of me doing the oil changes and tires swaps was to save money! Anyway, in the end it worked out, I got to spend a bunch of time outside (I know...heresy) and it felt good to get something done.
Then I came in and played games! Let's see what you and I may be interested in playing this week.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt
Release Date: April 27th, 2022
Platforms: PC, PS5
A free to play battle royale based in the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game universe? Really?!? Ok...I mean why not right?
Rogue Legacy 2
Release Date: April 28th, 2022
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, XSX/S
A full release sequel to the 2013 hit game. I say full release as an "early access" release happened so from my perspective that is kind of a beta so it doesn't fall under my re-release rules. At least in my head anyway. Anyway, watch the trailer below. If you like Rogue Lite's, platformers, procedurally generated dungeons then you may want to give Rogue Legacy 2 a look.
Nintendo Switch Sports
Release Date: April 29th, 2022
Remember Wii Sports? Nintendo Switch Sports is like that but with less sports but new sports. You use the Joy-Con's just like the Wii-motes like that time when you kicked grandpa's ass at bowling that one Christmas and he got so mad he threw his Wii-mote at the TV. Luckily all Grandpa and Grandma had was a tube TV back then and Grandpa had bad aim...hence why you kicked his ass. Anyway, I digress. Use Joy-Con's, play games, watch out for Grandpa.
