I'm downloading the files for the open beta of Overwatch for PC. Why not? Gonna drink a little beer and play it later today. I'm about to run out and watch the new Kevin Costner movie, Criminal, with my mom. Should be aight.
Hey guys, I just bought the new Master of Orion and 1979 Revolution on Steam. I haven't bought any games for a while, but I've wanted these. Master of Orion is a galactic empire simulator where you manage your planets and star fleets etc as you try to conquer the galaxy. 1979 Revolution is like a Telltale type game that takes place during the Iranian revolution back in 1979.
It was with deep satisfaction, a little sadness, and a tinge of regret that I finally beat Banner Saga a few minutes ago. I've been playing this game for about a year now or more since it came out, with two playthroughs -- on PC and my iPad -- and now I've finally completed it. It was really a sublime game, maybe it could have had a little more depth in the combat, but it was really good, with a heartfelt but bleak story, beautiful graphics, great sound, and fun tactical combat.
Alright, I'm coming out of my rut. I had an epiphany one day thanks to the words of one Joaquim Mira in the comments section of my blog, and ever since the bad ass Snee has returned. I found a compromise with my book, and I'm working through it now, doing what I do. It's some tedious shit, but it has to be done. Tomorrow I'll start sending out more queries to agents, but most of me still thinks this book needs to be self-published.
I'm still in a funk. I haven't been playing games, haven't been playing DND, haven't been writing. Been making music, but not getting anywhere. The thing is, this all stems back to me submitting my novel, "To Brave the Crumbling Sky" to a freelance editor and her coming back to me and telling me what is wrong with it: the "headjumping" -- that is, the jumping of perspective between the two main characters. I don't delineate this with different sections or chapters, just am constantly wandering from one perspective to another. I got this style from reading Gustav Flaubert, who does it a lot, and I kind of wondered if it was a problem in my book, but it was always too big a problem to fix for me to accept it.
been having really spotty internet. We installed a new modem, but it just got worst. Those bastards are sending a service repair man today and hopefully it will be fixed. IN other news, the super awesome Transmet gave me his steam code for Banner Saga 2, so I think what I'm gonna do is finish up the first one (I'm near the end I think), and then dive into that. AND then I will play CAT Interstellar.
I've got fucking pink eye. What the fuck? In other news I'm sitting here with a couple beers in me and having an epiphany: I have to catch up on my steam backlog. I have all these awesome games I'm not playing and I'm not going to put up with it anymore. I miss playing games. I've just been so stressed about the future and whatnot and my projects that I can never relax and just.... play a game. Well! That changes now. From now on I'm gonna chill and play more games. I deserve it goddammit. Video games are a powerful medium, and I love them dearly. But I just haven't been indulging and it's very frustrating.
