Life has been crazy lately. I spend more time working on campus to finish up the last of my finals (graduating in a week!) in one day than I do sleeping and playing games. I apologize for the lack of updates around here, but it will improve in just a matter of days. After that, until I can find a job (Which I am actively looking for — anyone want a marketing guru?) I’ll have plenty of free time.
I’m also bound by a few NDAs right now. If not for forced silence, I’d have quite a bit to share about a few games. I want to talk about Marvel Heroes, for example, which is an action RPG set in the Marvel universe, but I can’t just yet.
To kill what very little free time I have, which has mostly been extremely late at night (read: after 10pm), I’ve been playing Minecraft again. Our community has another server set up, and we’re playing a mod compilation called ‘Feed the Beast’. It’s neat, challenging compared to Tekkit, and a lot of fun to hop in and build. There’s something about building, tinkering, and letting my creative (or lack thereof) manifest itself in a game. Why can’t more games be a blank canvas like Minecraft? So simple, so fun.
Let’s see, what else am I up to lately? I played a 30 minutes of SWTOR tonight. A friend of mine is playing again just to kill some time and play some battlegrounds. I had fun playing the single-player game 1-50. The game is quite charming looking once you get past the low level armor that looks like it’s painted on. Animations are extremely smooth. I love what they did with the interface changes. I hate the F2P crap, but it’s free. As I continue to play, I’ll refine my thoughts and keep you posted.
That’s all for now! Things will pick up again very soon.
