I was going to try and restart my blogging machine again yesterday but since it was April Fool’s Day, I thought I’d skip it and start today instead. It’s been a month since I last wrote something and I didn’t want anyone thinking (if anyone is indeed still reading this) that it was just another one of my false starts. I have been busy the past month doing stuff that I can’t really talk about because I signed a non-disclosure agreement and although that didn’t prevent me from writing about other things, it kinda restricted my scope and discouraged me from writing at all. Now that it’s over, I’m free again!
On the gaming front, I feel like I’ve been playing musical chairs with my MMOs (Musical MMOs?). My main one is still Pirates of the Burning Sea, but I have also reactivated three old subscriptions for various reasons: 1) Star Wars Galaxies because some of my PotBS buddies are playing on my old server Gorath, 2) The Sims Online (or rather EA Land) because I want to make sure I get my old Simmy back, and 3) World of Warcraft because I had a terrible moment of weakness and boredom one night a couple of weeks ago. On top of that, I do have a lifetime subscription to Lord of the Rings Online so I play it occasionally, and I still harbor hopes of someday finishing the role-playing story arc on Guild Wars.
On the DS, having played Zelda and the Phantom Hourglass four or five times over, I finally decided it was time to start a new game. I got Assassin’s Creed, but the DS version isn’t as good as the console one so that quickly went to my games-I-wished-I-didn’t-buy collection. I am now on my second game of Professor Layton and the Curious Village, this time trying to unlock all the puzzles and bonuses.
So many games, so little time! Of course, the good thing about having such a line-up of games to play is that I will definitely have a lot to write about! I am not going to make any promises or vows this time but I am certainly looking forward to blogging again.
What games are YOU guys playing?
