What I've Been Up To

Spread the Word!

It’s been awhile since I’ve wrote one of these hasn’t it? Things have gotten a lot more busy around here so I don’t think I’ll be able to write as often as I was last year. 

This year in gaming in starting off pretty slow for me. I haven’t been impressed with anything that’s released so far except Dragon Quest VIII and that’s a remake for the 3DS. Resident Evil 7 made me realize how much I love the third person Resident Evil games so I went back to those and have no intention of playing Outlast with guns anymore. I am looking forward to For Honor and even though I don’t own a PS4 I want to see what Horizon Zero Dawn, and Nioh looks like. I should own a PS4 by the end of the year.

Dragon Quest VIII is fun, but I haven’t even put 10 hours in it yet so I can’t really give my opinion on it right now. Playing the closed beta of For Honor sold me on the game. I think it’s going to be great and Ubisoft was smart enough to separate their IPs so they wouldn’t compete with each other. I plan on buying For Honor on day one.

It’s been pretty hard for me to write anything lately. My daughter just started the first grade this year and most of my attention has gone to her since she’s being home schooled. It’s a lot of work. When I opened that big ass box filled with different school books I felt overwhelmed, but we’ve managed to get a nice schedule going and it’s gotten a little easier. I never thought I would make a good teacher, but so far everything is going pretty good. I’ve been spending a minimum of 5 hours a day helping my oldest child with school and when I’m done I’m too tired to really do anything else. On Tuesday we spent 8 hours in front of the compute doing different assignments and I was as mentally drained as my daughter. I have a new found respect for teachers because it’s not easy.

I think I’ll get better at this as I keep doing it, but for now I’ll write when I can. I don’t think my writing will be impacted too much, but I know I probably won’t be doing reviews for a while since they’re usually my longest articles and take the most time to do. This is probably the longest article I’ve written in the last week or so.

I’ll still pop into my favorite blogs to say hi every now and then :). What have you guys been up to?

    I respect and support what you’re doing for your daughter, that’s gotta be exhausting. Good for you man. I’ve just been watching a ton of movies (and running out of money) haha

      Thanks :).

      It’s really exhausting, but hearing her read to me makes it all worth it. I haven’t watched movies in a really long time. I miss it :).

    Home schooling must be quite a challenge – kudos to you for devoting the time to make it happen. It does sound like it is as rewarding for you as it is for your daughter. 🙂

    I still feel like I’m playing catch up on games already this year with my pile of shame creeping up on me again. With more RPGs on the way I really need to finish what I have!

    Awesome that you’re devoted to your daughter and her home schooling! I used to teach young kids too, and it’s a very hard job. Awesome that you’re doing what you’re doing!
