This summer has been a weird one for me, to say the least. With the job ups and downs and traveling, I’ve felt extremely burned out when it comes to gaming. Like I’ve lost my passion, which kind of blows. It’s part of the reason why I’m so behind on strategy guide reviews, whereas the other part is that I’ve been so busy with other reviews and travel. I’m ready for it all to come to an end, where I can find more time for gaming for myself and delving back into the greatness of strategy guides. In the meantime, I’m filling up my time with reading, both books and comics.
Lately the book front has been taken over with Warhammer 40K novels. I recently picked up the novel for Quantum Break, but it’s not what expected, meaning that it’s not extended lore; it’s a novelization of the game. If it gets to be too much, I will probably chuck it and get back to the Inquisition War in WH40K.
I’ve also jumped back into comics rather hardcore, catching up with all of my subscriptions as DC and Marvel both change hands with Rebirth and post-Secret Wars. Plus, I’ve really missed keeping on top of my video game comics. I get this way every few months or so, when I decided enough is enough and something has to give. Usually that something that has to give are books and comics or this site, and I’m tired of the things I love taking the backburner.
I love reading as much as I love strategy guides, and you know what? I don’t love reviewing games I don’t care about. That’s what is going to give this time.
I say that after I turned in a review for PS4-exclusive Bound this morning, which I did not care about. That’s probably why I’m so burned out. And maybe it’s because I’m getting older. I think I need a nap.
Oh and there’s this thing of beauty I stumbled upon from WTF Marketing.
