The SteamWorks: Personal Update 6/12/12

Hey Gang,

So I know I've been absent for a while. Tennis kinda took over my life, and for a while I just couldn't stand playing video games. Honestly I think that was just my subconscious telling me I needed a bit of a break from games to explore some other facets of life that the world has to offer. I met a lot of new people, learned a lot of new things about myself, and advanced in some new skills. So with that, I'd like to just update you on some things that I've been going through.

~ So my family just got Netflix, and let me tell you, I'm loving it. I don't really like to stay up till 11:00 P.M. on a Wednesday night to watch an hour show on TV, so being able to access a bunch of TV shows that I've found interesting whenever I want has been a great experience. I've watched Season One of The Walking Dead, Seasons One, Two, and Three of Parks and Recreation, and Seasons One and Two of The Colony so far, so I have a ton of reviews to do. I'm not too thrilled with their movie selection, but at the same time it's not awful.

~ I recently decided to check in with Wizard101 and the new world of Avalon. While I won't be doing a full review on Avalon (at least, I don't plan to), I'll probably be updating you on my progress and certain things I like or dislike about the new area. By the way, I just want to make it completely clear that I'm super against the new Pirate101 (KingsIsle, I understand it's supposed to be a sequel to Wizard101, but seriously? Horrible name choice...), BUT I still applied for the Beta 1) Because it'll give me something to review on the blog and 2) Because you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

~ Back a month or two ago, I canceled my SWTOR account. The game was just getting immensely boring to me, and I guess I sorta burned myself out passively. That tends to happen with me and AAA MMOs. It just seemed that no matter what "projects" I took on, nothing was working out for me. It just made the game even more boring.

~ New York Comic Con is coming up in about 4 months!! I can't believe it's finally getting closer and closer;; it feels like forever since it last happened. I know everyone on the Project: Better Dolphin team is really pumped, and we're trying to how we should dress. Another bit of exciting news, New York Comic Con is opening press pass registration this Friday, and we're hoping to get our hands on some. So wish us luck!

That's pretty much everything interesting that's been going on recently. I know Chazz said he has a review coming up sometime later today, so stay tuned for that! It's good to be back! :)

Peter, The SteamWorks
