It’s forecast to be hot today. Damn hot. So much so that the Government has said it’s going to pass the ‘heat health’ threshold. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but I do know that we have a notoriously archaic and outdated fossil fuel supply here (oh, to live in South Australia) which means today is really just sitting around waiting for the inevitable power outage, so it felt best to not only get this achievement out of the way early today, but also get in a promised game of Skylanders with my son as well.

It turns out that Skylanders does recognise the two logged in accounts for achievement purposes if you play them, so I’ll give Activision an apology on that front, but they could have made the UI a bit cleaner to make sure that you know, for example, Player 2 is logged in as X Account. A small gripe, but I’m entitled to it because I’m hot and bothered.

I’ve got to say, playing with my son is equal parts frustrating and delightful. I think we spent the better part of ten minutes trying to complete a grinding challenge, and then there were other puzzles to do where he knew simply where to walk and when. If I reflected honestly, it’s probably my own tolerance that I need to work on – for him, he just wants to beat doomlanders … and that’s a fairly noble cause all on its own.

Now, if you’ll excuse me … I’ll be off trying not to melt for the rest of the day.
