Well that was a nice refreshing break

OK, it’s been a solid two months since my last post. That happens. I’ve been blogging since 2007, but not steadily; there have been entire years when I’ve made barely any posts at all. Sometimes I’m just not in the mood, and one of the nice things about this blog, from my perspective, is that I’m not under any real obligation to do it. But the decline of Twitter has led some to try to create a new golden age of blogging, and I feel like this means I should at least try to get back into it.

We left off Wizardry V just as I was beginning to explore the fifth dungeon level — something I had done just enough to be intimidated by its size and complexity. A two-month hiatus is a pretty clear indication that my desire to make maps, which was the primary motivation I had for pulling out the Wizardry series in the first place, has been sated for the moment. I do intend to get back to it sooner than later, before the state information completely leaves my brain, but first, I have an outstanding request (from several months ago) to finally finish Deus Ex.

(I had some notion that I was going to write about the games I bought in the 2022 holiday sales, but at this point it’s pretty clear that’s not happening. Maybe I’ll drop a post about Loop Hero when I’ve solidified my thoughts about it.)

    Welcome back!

    And YAY!!

    I look forward to reading the rest of your journey. I won’t at all be crushed if you don’t love it. It’s just nice to ‘watch’ someone experience it for the first time.

    Nice to see the stack progressing!

    I agree with your sentiment, though. You don’t owe anyone anything so you should feel free to do whatever you want in each instant.

    I hope my previous comment didn’t come through as rude or demanding :)
