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 :-)
