Today marks our 6th anniversary of the blog. We have posted a total of 593 published posts (594 as soon as I hit “publish” on this one) which means that we have about 100 posts per years which translates to one post every three to four days. This is not bad!
I often wish I could write down more posts here, but real life happens and it’s been hitting us with lots of non-gaming content lately. I will definitely not complain, though, because I still love my job and I love writing my dissertation thesis. We are also in the middle of preparing our wedding come August. And even though I have fallen asleep more often than not recently while trying to play a game in the evening, I still do have some time left for gaming. It just means that there isn’t a lot of energy left to write down my thoughts on the game I’m playing.
But just to give you some information on what I’ve been up to lately: I started playing a magicka Dragonknight in Elder Scrolls Online and a stamina Dragonknight together with bookahnerk (well, we will play together once he’s not in a different part of Germany most of the week with only his non-gaming laptop accompanying him). Thanks to Wildstar offering a free level 50, I have jumped back into the game to check out the Dominion side with my new chua esper. In Rift, I am thinking about starting a new dimension-building project. Not that the first one is finished or even anything spectacular, but I’d really like to have something else. I haven’t really decided what exactly I want, only that its focus will on the training dummies that are available. Kind of like a fighting/training arena, but with some more style… :p And then there is Trove… a game I have neglected quite a lot lately, because I had some weird performance issues and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I think my issue may have come from enabling multithreading in the options and as a result, I had quite a lot of stuttering in the game. After disabling this setting, the stuttering hasn’t appeared anymore, so I hope that this really solved the issue because I would love to jump into Trove again.
Other than MMORPGs, I’ve been trying out Folk Tale again recently. A game that’s been in Steam’s Early Access for a few years already and which has received lots of negative reviews because of that. Once I’ve gotten a good enough impression, I will report here about the game, but I will not focus on the past, but instead I’ll look at what you get if you buy the game now. In general, I’ve gone “back to the roots” with some city-building games like Folk Tale, Cities Skylines etc.
I also got Total War: Warhammer in Humble Bundle March’s bundle, but to be honest, the game felt very overwhelming!
Either way, even after six years, there are no plans to stop blogging! Real life is keeping me from blogging as much as I’d like, but that still won’t stop me from blogging once in a while, at least. :)
