So I'm back in the saddle. Â The summer has been busy at work. Â I spent over 5 months away from home, away from my family, away from friends and away from my passions. Â I also had to move… twice. Â It was rough but fruitful.
I come back here to find what I feel is like a smoking crater. Â I haven't had the time to keep up on the website and for that I am sorry. Â It was largely out of my control and definitely not for a lack of trying or wanting to keep rolling out new content on this site.
With the winter months approaching, I will have more time to spend on my hobbies and passions, a large chunk of that will be gaming.
I recently introduced a third computer to my desk setup. Â This one is 100% dedicated to streaming. Â While I still do not have the hardware to stream at 720p because this computer is dedicated to streaming, there will be no stream stability issues or at least not as many. Â I'm still waiting on a dedicated internet connection to be installed to my office so that may cause problems.
I've found myself playing a lot of Kerbal space Program over the summer. Â Mainly because it can be played on my older laptop and doesn't need an internet connection to play.
During the few occasions when I had time at home to play games, I found myself playing star citizen's arena commander, Payday 2, diablo 3 and a few other steam games. Â I've watched a lot of games release this summer and I wasn't impressed, but you all know that I don't buy into the mainstream game marketing that goes on.
I'm really eager to see what Star Citizen turns into. Â I think chris roberts and his team at cloud imperium games are doing an outstanding job. Â They have a ton of work to do, more than most game developers because they are inventing many wheels at once. Â Star Citizen will release with many brand new technologies, probably 10-20 large new technologies, unlike mainstream games that might have Â a single never-before-seen technology. Â I really hope that cig can set the bar much higher for game developers world-wide so we can stop this slump in new game quality.
I'm not locking myself into Star Citizen though. Â I'm keeping an open mind about new games until they show me that they will be crap like the majority of them. Â If you have any suggestions for games that I should check out, please list them in comments!Banner goes here
