I have decided to take the plunge this year and try my hand at this phenomena called Nanowrimo. While the intent is to write an entire novel in a month, I do not share that objective. I am starting small, with a 10K word count goal. Hopefully I can overshoot that, but — errr well — NHL playoffs start very soon, and Pillars of Eternity released last week! Those are both HUGE distractions for me. I probably shouldn’t have signed up, but a goal that size should be manageable, regardless of what else is happening in life. Am I right?
As of today, I am almost at 4K words, so it seems that I should be able to manage staying on track – that’s the plan, anyway. How are all of you doing?
That’s right, I said New Year’s Revelation, not Resolution; intentionally.
I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. If I plan to do something, I don’t need an arbitrary date to help me make a commitment, I just go ahead and do it! (at least until I stop :p) So what, you might ask, is a New Year’s Revelation? Well, I really don’t know, but it sounded cool, and it kind of describes what I have been thinking with respect to gaming of late. You see, for years I have been a huge fan of MMO’s, but in the last while, I believe that it isn’t actually the MMO that I have enjoyed, but rather, the stories that I have traditionally been able to play inside those MMO’s. My recent gaming habits would imply that I have already taken this revelation unknowingly to heart. The games I have been playing lately further confirm this thinking. Have a look after the jump, and I will share the what and the why!
I would love to promise myself that this will be the first of many Blog posts. I guess, if we wait long enough, there may be many. This is not my first time attempting to “blog”. I have various blogs scattered throughout the internetverse! Regardless, I hope to be more consistent this time around, but no promises, unfortunately. 🙂 So let’s get started with something very simple!
Here are the games that I am playing, as of the writing of this “first post”.
Star Wars The Old Republic
Novare Coast, a Warzone.
Guild Wars 2
A very unique MMO implementation
Here are the games that I am following (the top ones, anyway) as of this “first post”.
