I was kind of lazy…the entire year of 2018. I didn’t afford myself many chances to enjoy things. It has been a tough year personally, and even professionally. I never really allowed time to escape into leisure activities, and instead would sort of…crumple into myself. While I did this, good games came out, there were things to be done, and I let it pass me by. 2019 needs to be better for me, on a few fronts, but honestly enjoying myself is one of the big ones. I need to learn how to relax more, my jaw hurts all the time from stress, I need to learn how to take a break. To that end, I am setting some gaming resolutions that you know…I will hopefully follow. We’ll see. Continue Reading
With the holiday season now in the rear-view mirror, and New Year’s quickly approaching, it is time to look forward to the games of 2019. Granted, I have a backlog so big that if I were to put all of these games in a single PS4 game-case, the pile would be dozens of feet tall; and would fall over on top of me, killing me with the sheer weight of my wasted dollars. However, the march of time is inexorable, and games will continue to come out despite my backlog. Worse even, there will be some games I want to play, and will have to inevitably spend money on, making sure some of those backlog games will stay in the backlog.
So in the style of so many other articles about upcoming games for a year, I have taken a look a lists of 2019 in video games. I have chosen the ten games that appeal to me the most, and have ranked them based on my level of anticipation. Note some of these games don’t have set release dates, and some of them are not even guaranteed for 2019, I just believe they will come out then. Even if they don’t it doesn’t much matter, I didn’t write this article under penalty of perjury or anything. Let’s get on with it. Continue Reading
Proof I have not written anything in a very long time. I am writing in what is apparently the old-school editor, that is about to be replaced by a new one. I guess I shouldn’t get too used to this. I miss the old-old editor…but I am old, and I like the things I am used to I guess. I have no idea why I am writing this specifically; I have just felt the need to write for about a week now, but never indulged the urge. I guess I miss putting my thoughts down on (virtual) paper and just letting whoever have access to a small part of my idiot brain. Once upon a time, when I was much younger I thought I could do this a lot; write, and write, and write some more, get something of an audience, and maybe make a go at writing about games full-time. I’m old now, and I know there is never any way that would happen now, especially in this era of video and personality-driven content. I don’t know how to do video stuff, and I really don’t have much of a personality. Continue Reading
