Happy Anniversary Blogging

The truth is, I’ve had this account for 5 years but never wrote or post anything until last year around this month.  Writing has helped me tremendously to connect myself with the rest of the world. It’s therapeutic. In fact, people I know in real life are beginning to understand why I keep a journal with me.  My thoughts spill and splatter everywhere.

So it’s no surprise I treat this blog the same way as I treat my journal except this blog is more organized than the actual journal. The blog has helped me enjoy game one at a time.  That in itself, is therapeutic because someone asked me what is my secret to smiling?  Having some alone time for reflection.  Story-driven video games help me do that because I am exploring other worlds and relating it to mine.

So wondering what I am up to? Currently I am playing Fragile Dreams,  but finding the energy and time to play the game has been a challenged. Life first, then play.  This game is going to take me forever to beat as well, although I’m sure I will have a lot to say about the game once finished.  I really am enjoying it so far– but my only complaint about it so far is the Wii controller, which took me some time to get used to. No instructions in game, so manual is extremely useful.

Fragile Dreams

As for my final thought, I have updated the about me page, if you are interested to see what to expect from this blog.  I’ll be here for awhile even though I don’t post as much or always hit the like button, I am always reading.  And you are always welcome to follow or visit me on Instagram. I am quite active there.

Thanks for reading and take care guys!

 

 

 

 

 

My Shopping List–Casual Games are Great!

My apologies for the lack of posts.  I have been busy with songwriting lately. However, I managed to complete Root Letter, a game which I grew fond of and I enjoyed the genre a lot (visual novel games).   For one, I  enjoy books and a good story. Visual novel games have it all for me at the moment: light gameplay and not too mentally strenuous.  Because after a long day, the last thing I want to do is play a difficult game.  I must say I am very happy with my time management for games. I learned that opting for casual games actually balanced my stress level.  But I must confess, I do get the urge to play more difficult games from time to time.

Due to a decrease in gaming time, I became somewhat of a game collector. Still looking for those hidden gems but probably will not enjoy it to its max. So I’ll share a list of games that I have been looking at:

  1. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games

Nonary

2. Exist Archive : The Other Side of the Sky

Exist Archive

3. Assault Suit Leynos

Assault

I know most of them are Playstation games. I am not at all bias towards a particular gaming platform, I just can’t afford to own every systems at the moment and have time to appreciate it.  And my gaming passion is not about collecting games,  I am actually collecting ideas. We are living in the Information Age and I just happened to grow up in a video game culture just like many of you folks. New ideas are not dead–they are just delivered in the form of video games.

My final thought for the post, I’m almost done with Nier Automata, my brother and friend are bugging me about the game because I am taking forever to complete it.  I have a lot of things to say about it, but it takes time to gather my thoughts.  I am a bit overwhelmed with the game because it’s so philosophical.  Big concepts require time to digest. I am finding myself more and more taking frequent breaks to pause and reflect on what I am playing (I do this with books as well).   I will not 100 percent the game because I just don’t have time.   But my next post will surely be about Nier Automata.

Until next time, thanks for reading!
