This might be a farewell to comic conventions, at least for a little while. Let’s write it and find out.
Hey there, stranger! The blog’s a bit quiet these days, simply because I’ve been doing a lot of work for other sites. Work which includes some of the articles I’m most proud of, like, ever.
This weekend, I finished Steamworld Dig. That in and of itself is pretty remarkable. As much as I love games, these days I rarely finish them. Normally, I suck out all of a game’s ideas and mechanics, like the marrow from its bone, or get stuck or just bored, and then move onto the next one.
After a bit of a fallow year for gaming in 2015, when I played a lot of analogue cardboard games and MGS V and basically nothing else, I started this year by buying a PS4. I’m in that glorious post-new-console honeymoon period, where I suddenly have a huge library of games at my disposal. So as I cycle through games, I want to try and write about at least some of them. The plan is short blogs – not too much thinking ahead, not too much editing, just what I can shake loose in a single sitting – picking out one or two things I find interesting about each game. Here’s the first:
Oh gosh. I haven’t posted anything on this blog for the entirety of 2016 to this point. I’ve got a couple of things cooking, but in the meantime it seemed polite to let you know what I’ve been busy doing instead (namely, writing for other sites for actual currency that I can use to feed myself and my very hungry dog).
