What a fast month October was, and here we are in November already. Time is ticking away.
This week, I played two adventure games on the PC:
1. Drawn: the Painted Tower – read the review here.
2. Alter Ego (2010). [I’m aware there is a game called Alter Ego from 1986 – this wasn’t that game]
I also reviewed The Walking Dead: the Game (Xbox) – I didn’t play that this week; it was the first game I played in 2013. Read the review here.
November is a special month – the clocks go back an hour from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time, Remembrance Day in Canada, Thanksgiving in the U.S., and Mo’vember. You also notice a flurry of activity in the blogsphere in November. I have been reading several posts where bloggers have decided to participate in writing campaigns for the month of November, whether it be writing 50,000 words in 30 days, or writing a blog post every day.
I commend others who take up this challenge, but I don’t plan to participate this time. For me, I’d rather the blog post ideas flow freely, without forcing myself to write. I know this translates in one or two posts a week. But, hey: quality over quantity! I want to continue to enjoy writing for this blog.
In a past life, I had a blog where I tried to participate in a writing campaign, and it didn’t work for me. What was worse: I ended up resenting my blog (and myself) for painting myself into a corner.
Anyway, good luck to those who are involved in writing campaigns! I look forward to reading all your posts!
Thanks for reading and following! Happy gaming!
