Game Round Up

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 2 Comments
Not sure if I’ve done one of these ever, but figured I might as well talk a little bit about what I’ve been playing recently. I never seem to have enough free time to really play much these days and I tend to feel guilty about it when I do (shouldn’t I be doing something productive?) so it’s rare I get hours of uninterrupted time. That being said, my attention span for games is not what it used to be and I find myself often getting bored pretty quickly. (The above pictured art is by the lovely Aimo, as always.) So, what have I been playing? Well, I’ll start with the October time frame and work my way forward: 1) Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, 20th anniversary edition – this is a remake/reboot of the original. I played this way back on my Pentium 60 with its 400 meg… Read more

Look! Abby’s wearing a dress! Oh, wait, but now she has pants! Erm. No, no..it’s a dress. Crap. And so on.  I feel like I’m constantly on the same page and running in place. Every time… Read more

The End…It Comes Soon.

Or soon enough, anyway. I had set a sort of internal deadline to get the draft of the book done this weekend. And I waltzed right past it in a swirl of two children’s birthday parties, two sets of play dates and some much needed bathroom cleaning. However, I’m dreadfully close. I know this because of how hard it has suddenly become. (And how eager I suddenly seem to be to clean my bathroom. Like having a pretty toilet will somehow make the writing better. Yes, there are some days I want to slap my inner muse silly at her procrastination techniques.) Maybe it’s a mental thing or something having to do with letting go. But there it is. Part of is the scene I’ve been struggling with. Usually when I have to work this hard at a particular bit it either means I’m trying to force something  – i.e. the characters… Read more
