Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game Free Weekend

SEGA celebrates the opening of the Olympic Summer Games by offering the chance to play Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game for free on Steam this weekend. Here's word on this chance to go for the gold:
The Olympic Games are back, and this time it's your chance for glory! Whether you play with friends, family, or go for gold on the global leaderboards, this is a party game that anyone can pick up and enjoy!

Prepare to unleash the competitor within as you create your athlete, customize their skills and pick the perfect costume. Why settle for standard sportswear when you can take centre stage as a pirate, astronaut or cowboy?

Choose between 18 fun-fueled sporting events—from Tennis and Football to the 100m, Basketball and Boxing—there’s always a record to beat and a score to settle.

Alliance of the Sacred Suns Demo

A playable demo for Alliance of the Sacred Suns is now available on Steam, offering Windows gamers the chance to sample this grand strategy/RPG set in space, where no one can hear you bullseye womp rats in your T-16. Here's the recent E3 2021 Trailer and here's a bit on the game:
Alliance of the Sacred Suns immerses you fully in the role of ruler. You will create your character, selecting from a variety of backgrounds and abilities. You will engage in conversations and develop relationships with your officials. You will make hard choices in illustrated narrative events, some threatening the stability of your fragile reign, others shining the faintest hope of a new dawn for your dying empire.

Your empire's long decline means that you begin as ruler in name only. The nobility has coalesced into a handful of Great Houses, and their power has been growing for generations at the expense of imperial control. Members of the Great Houses dominate the imperial bureaucracy and complicate your rule. Yet, the strength of the Great Houses also provides critical support to your empire. A council of nobles serves as a check on your authority, but also a chance to build consensus for your policies.

Out of the Blue

Happy National Tequila Day, though hopefully those around the world will feel welcome to join in the festivities. Tequila is MrsBlue's poison of choice, so we already have some on hand. She's not a big fan of margaritas, but I am, so I think I may whip some of those up and actually celebrate the "occasion." Cheers!
