Bloody hellfire. It’s been a busy few years. Kids, full time job, dead Dad, all sorts. Thankfully, things are settling down now and I’ve got a little more time to do the simple things in life, such as drink a cup of tea that isn’t cold, and scratch my bollocks occasionally. Sometimes, I get to treat myself to a shite.
So! Computer games then! Well, I’ve not been as active as I used to be online, or had a huge amount of time to play games, due to the above reasons. I’ve not been completely out of it though. For the first time in my life, I actually have all of the current consoles at the same time. I have a PS4 Pro and a Switch, and I recently picked up an XBone S to try out Game Pass, which is proving to be very enjoyable. Look how Game Centrist I am.
My limited free time has become extremely precious to me, and I’m a lot more discerning about the games I play. I have a very strict No Bullshit policy now, and if a game doesn’t grab me in the first 30 mins, then I can’t be arsed playing it. I’ve tended to just play stuff I’m familiar with in my free time lately.
I’ve played an absolute fuckload of Minecraft.
This lack of free time, coupled with losing my Dad has also had the knock on effect of mostly killing my creative mojo. No lie, this has been a huge, blue-waffle-grade cunt and has really brought me down. I’ve not done any game dev, writing, art, anything for about a year and a half.
I’m starting to come out of that ultrafunk now so, crossing everything I have two of, I may be getting back on the fun bus very soon. Either that or I’ll collapse from exhaustion trying!
Anyway, I just wanted to get the ball rolling and do a thing, so here it is. Fuck knows what I’m doing, so I’m just going to go with it and see what happens.
I definitely used to do stuff. I just need to remember what it was and how I did it.
