I know, I know. It’s been a while but I’ve been busy and I stopped playing games and I lost your address and I got a new phone and… and, look, I’ve just been busy, ok.
In the last few years I’ve found myself playing less and less Guild Wars 2, not because it’s not fun but because the thought of sitting at a creaky, old PC in a tiny, windowless room is not fun. That’s for a young man and I ain’t a young man anymore.
I did try various other games on the PC, such as Subnautica and No Man’s Sky, as well as a brief return to Elite Dangerous, but no matter how good the game I just can’t seem to enjoy sitting at the PC to play them.
Instead I’ve gravitated more and more to playing on my phone with Minecraft being the ongoing draw. I’ve played a lot of the excellent Rusty Lake titles and dipped into games such as Animal Crossing, Tsuki Adventure, and Stardew Valley.
There something simpler, easier about playing on my phone but by the gods of in-app purchases they can be really annoying and of the three farming/community sim titles I’m enjoying Stardew Valley more because, like Minecraft, the one-off payment means I’m not having to endure adverts, watch videos or deal with pay walls.
So for the foreseeable future I’m hoping to try and post quick updates on moments in the games I’m playing on the move rather that posting long blocks of text or rants about my thoughts. I don’t expect anyone to care about what I think about games so I’m going to focus on “look at that!” snapshots, instead. Hell, if nothing else they will serve as a reminder to me in my speaking dotage of some fun events I was involved with! 😁
