So up until roughly a month ago, I had neglected this blog a bit – partly because I didn’t have a whole lot to write about, but I also had a few metaphorical irons in the fire at the time. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but let’s just say I’ve been pretty busy with mundane stuff that would turn this relatively short update into a long one.
That’s not to say I didn’t have any down time, but any spare time I did have was dedicated to either trying to wrap my head around learning some insane basslines from the Cardiacs (a band I wrote about a few weeks ago), and playing Doom. Oh, and getting drunk. Probably some combination of the three.
That leads me quite nicely into what I intend to write about over the next few weeks; I haven’t done anything on videogames in a little while, so the next few posts will be focusing on a few games that I loved when I was growing up. It’ll mostly be FPS games, as they were, and probably still are one my favourite genres, but there might be the odd strategy game in there as well. One thing to point out is that this will focus on videogames that can be acquired today; this might cut out a few that really spring to mind but can’t really be tracked down without spending an absurd amount of money. While I have some fond memories of some of these games, I wouldn’t want nostalgia swaying my opinion, and as I haven’t played a few of them in over ten years, I wouldn’t really be able to go into as much detail as I would like to.
If anyone has any ideas on things they would like me to write about, please let me know – it can be about anything really, but if there’s any review requests, they would probably take priority. I can do with being opened up to some new stuff.
