While I originally said that I didn’t see my new-found freelance blogging lifestyle wouldn’t hurt the blog much, I am starting to see the cracks showing underneath. I have done a reasonable amount of writing this week in my spare time. Far more than I usually would and because it’s not something I have much efficiency for yet it takes far more time than is probably average.
As such while it doesn’t look like I’ve written that much, it has sunk more than the usual time that I would spend on the blog writing random things and I do see this maybe getting a little worse too. I have other things I still want to do beside write as well. Bush walks with the puppy, cleaning and such, and even painting some miniatures again. And of course gaming.
It’s also hurt the YouTube progress as well I feel. Although there are other causes like seasonal hayfever getting in the way there too.
One thing I have noticed is that I’m playing games I normally wouldn’t be cause of it. I’ve been playing a heap of Fractured space the last few days which is sort of a space mobs and really enjoying it. It’s a pretty game but it’s more how fluid and impact full the combat feels, and how active it keeps you even though these huge metal monstrosities move so slowly. I’m starting to really get the hang of it too now that I’ve found the role I like – tank class of course so I can kind of rush right in there.
There should be a review coming out in a couple of days for it. And it might sound silly but I was worried about this article. Most articles are more about the feel in my mind, and a reasonable good and funny ramble like my versus but for a more official review I feel like it has to be a little more serious and detailed. Contrary of course to my usual reviews that tend to be more impression pieces here. A post about what I felt about rather than what it is. Hopefully I did a good job detailing it anyway.
Hot on the news of Firefall and its inevitable closure I detailed the 5 main reasons why I really loved it as an mmo, at least in its earlier beta versions anyway. Those that have read the blog for a while will know all this already but if you don’t remember just follow the link.
The next post is another Versus I’m writing, this time letting TSW and Swtor battle it out for supremacy. Just thought it would be fun since they are both a more story focused mmo experience.
This has me of course playing more TSW and getting through the issue packs and on my way to Tokyo and also diving back into Tor for the first time in a couple of years. My Trooper is still there as well as a few other characters I really have no idea about since I loaned my account to a friend for a bit. It’s funny the things other people make like, my account was just two characters and now it’s full haha. So far it’s feeling meh, although I’m going to pick up the recent expansion as well and see what the new content is like. Maybe on a different server too because the one I’m on seems a little dead.
