My husband is home for 8 days this Christmas, having been gone for the past 8 weeks (I saw him for 36h and he was gone for 16 weeks prior to that) and then he’s gone for another 4 weeks before we’re finally done with our RCMP depot adventure and head to Saskatchewan to begin two years of a new adventure – as a family, at least.
I’m still playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 as much as I can, I’ve done a few runs now, I went to the bank and got a loan and bought myself my very own truck, decked it out for Christmas (again) and managed to save the game without things breaking which is excellent. What wasn’t so excellent was forgetting to pick up the cargo I was supposed to be hauling, and driving across most of Poland without said cargo. I’m not used to driving from my own garage, and that means the cargo isn’t just waiting on the lot for me and it’s certainly not already hitched to my trailer. Whewps. So I quit out for now (to write this post, and look over my husband and son who are taking a nap together) and then when I log back in I’ll drive backwards a bunch to my garage and try to fix the mistake.
I also had my little truck driver take their first sleep, I noticed an icon of a dude in a bed that was white, then blue, then red, and I could hear sound effects of someone yawning (presumably me). Pulled into a truck stop for the night and all was well the next morning.
I also took some amazing screenshots of a sunset that was happening as I was driving away from it. The game is just so absolutely beautiful. It’s peaceful, relaxing, and even though I’m still finding the controls a bit picky and awkward, I’m having fun which is of course the most important part.
So from all of us here at NomadicGamersEh we wish all of our readers a VERY Merry Christmas, and a happy new year. I’m excited about what this next year will bring, it’s certainly going to be an adventure.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
