The state of things…

19 Jan

Over the last month or so the final nail in the gaming PC’s coffin was driven home by the good lady. She bought Minecraft Pocket Edition for The Boy and in my attempt to know more about it to help him I have become addicted to the damn thing to the total exclusion of everything else. I haven’t logged into Guild Wars 2 since the start of December – I even missed the whole of the Winterfest and although it sounded fun I can honestly say I don’t mind.

You see, Xmas was a great break from a very busy & highly pressured workplace and I wanted to spend add much time with the kids as possible so I didn’t want to lock myself away in my tiny computer room. Therefore to find a game I could play on my tablet with the family was perfect and it’s become increasingly obvious I’m in a gaming phase where I can share my time with the brood.

So if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, the answer is in a mine somewhere on my tablet. That and zipping all over the county for work. Hell, I’ve stopped listening to gaming podcasts (except the always wonderful Contains Moderate Peril) and have little energy to blog or tweet. I’m sure this will change at some point, but until then I’m not pushing it :-)

    :-) I’ve been looking into Minecraft myself…….the son of a friend of mine is into it and asked me to have a look at it! I decided I’d keep my hands off it…..too risky! :-D GW2 I can walk away from once in a while, but creating and building stuff I know is too addictive…..but you never know! :-)

      Oh it’s great. I’ve kept off the PC version and stuck to the pocket edition on my nexus 7 instead. It’s just such a lovely time sink :-)

      Hi Mach – thank you for the WB, for some reason your comment went into spam so I missed it until now.

        Must’ve been all those free iPads I was offering people in the comments. I’ll keep a lower profile :)

    Hi there – I really like the PE but it is very limited compared to the PC version. I thing its better to almost see them as two separate games otherwise it would be ready to be disappointed with the PE.
