Monday Gaming Diary: My Break from Gaming
I’m so tired. I’ve gone balls-to-the-wall ever since San Diego Comic-Con, and looking back on it, I’m not sure why I thought I could handle traveling so much and working, and and and and…you get the idea. So last week, I took a complete break from gaming (unless you count iOS games as gaming, which I don’t).
I can’t lie; it was nice. I actually went to bed early and got some decent sleep, and I’ve felt myself completely unwind from the stress-coaster I’ve been on since mid-July. So when I went to my Dishonored appointment on Friday morning at QuakeCon, I felt eager to play a game again. Every now and then, we all need a break from things, especially when our hobbies become more like jobs than they are hobbies. Since this is my first week in about three to have zero traveling and zero conventions to attend, I’m going to get right back into my normal routine. For starters, I need to finish this Spec Ops: The Line strategy guide review that I’ve been sitting on since before SDCC. I had all the intentions in the world to write it up while I was in San Diego. Considering that was almost a month ago, well, yeah. I have nothing.
Oh and before you question my status on Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, I haven’t had a chance to work on that as I’m still waiting for the guide to arrive. I’ve used that fact to delay even turning on the game so I could enjoy my break for the full week. That’s how you turn lemons into lemonade–by, uh, procrastination.
If you want to know how much I loved Dishonored, you’ll have to read my write-up at GamingAngels.
