Life has been crazy lately.Â 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.Â I apologize for the lack of updates around here, but it will improve in just a matter of days.Â 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.Â If not for forced silence, I’d have quite a bit to share about a few games.Â 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.Â Our community has another server set up, and we’re playing a mod compilation called ‘Feed the Beast’.Â It’s neat, challenging compared to Tekkit, and a lot of fun to hop in and build.Â There’s something about building, tinkering, and letting my creative (or lack thereof) manifest itself in a game.Â 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?Â I played a 30 minutes of SWTOR tonight. A friend of mine is playing again just to kill some time and play some battlegrounds.Â I had fun playing the single-player game 1-50.Â The game is quite charming looking once you get past the low level armor that looks like it’s painted on.Â Animations are extremely smooth.Â I love what they did with the interface changes.Â 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.
