Long time no blog
Wow, has it been while, so long that the last time I used this it was through Blogspot (with the Blogger thing simply confusing me). Not much has changed, although I seem to have less to play games as of late, which translates as less time to write. Most of my energy is spent on my monthly column at RFGeneration but I would like to change that. Well, "want" and "would like to" are completely different things, so we'll see how things go.
So the big question today is what I want to do with this blog. On one hand I would like to post at least once a week, even if the post has little to no substance to it. I believe this will make me a better writer in the long run, which is something that I would like to happen. Now, about content. Looking at the last four posts I see two that are obviously inspired by the CRPG Addict and two that are reposts of my monthly front-page at RFGeneration. This needs to change, and I was thinking about changing it to a focus on sci-fi games with a loose focus on the space sim genre. This is a genre that I really feel strongly about, but nonetheless I should just start it, without any fanfare or anything. The new blog will be called (perhaps tentatively) The Observatory, shortened to ThOb. Sound good? Good. Next post will have details on my plans for this blog, as well as some details on the first game I would like to play.
