So this is my new user feature thing I am going to start. It is not completely fleshed out but I have a bunch of ideas for it and I am going to go with them and see what works and what doesn't. WARNING: I am not a pro, Olympic writer, beast journalist, or an English major. So this feature will just be kinda for me to reflect on the games I play and hopefully just give someone a smile on a crappy day or just to help with procrastination round the community. 

The idea and reason behind this is simple. I want to improve my writing. Reason number two, I want to share my experiences with people with similar interests. I don't really have that at college. Reason three, I am dealing with some confidence stuff and my coach said I should do things I love and things I am good at. I am pretty good at gaming and I love writing so two birds one stone. I am not sure I have a reason four. If I think of one I will put it in.

Playdos Plays is just basically I pick a game or backloggery does, I play it (probably for the first time) and beat it. Simple. I write review type material of it, my impressions, interesting things that happen to me, things I like, and anything else I can think of. It is kinda like the subtitles to a youtube let's play but with the video. I don't have the means to capture gameplay footage just yet so this will suffice. I like reflections and reflecting on everything I do, it helps me develop as a person and since gaming is such a huge part of my life, I think it is a valuable activity to reflect on. It will be spoiler free for the most part. I will hint at things or just put overview of the story. But if it is like any of the Bioshock games, the story will be left for you guys to discover. I am not a big fan of spoilers so if there are any I will put a warning. 

I hope this will be a weekly feature that I will be able to post but it just depends on how much gaming I can get in and have a sufficient amount to write a blog about. I hope you guys enjoy it when I finally start writing them up. If you have any suggestions feel free to let me know. Other than that........

Weekend was pretty long. I am just involved in doing homework and training. I have been watching a lot of twitch as I work on homework, which I find interesting. Not really for the gameplay but more for the commentary. Exception is LoL. Can watch that all day. I don't really have much else. Last Week of BaD. I am sad but I think I will be able to keep up a constant dose of blogs so BaD was a good experience for me so far. Keep it up everyone. Have a Awesome Swole Week.

Good luck with your series.

Since i'm not good with acronyms, which LoL is the one you're refering to?

That's pretty much what a bulk of my blogs used to be. Simply playing through a game,beating it,and reviewing it! Personally I found it to be very helpful so I hope you do too! Btw,that's the awesomest unicorn avatar ever! Mad props! Cool

Thanks!!! It is the Unicorn from Peggle. And I figure I'll play around with the basics of video game blogging.

I've been using backloggery a lot lately. I use it to select a new handheld game every few days. So far I've been playing a lot of the small games on collections like Atari's Greatest Hits on DS and Capcoms Classics Collection on PSP. I'm having a blast with it.

Yea I am still updating it and playing around with it. I love those collections on the handhelds. They are a great idea and more games should come out.
