Here’s something you may not know about me, although if you’ve been listening to the podcast you’ve probably picked up on it. I’m real big into routines. Routines, patterns, ruts whatever you want to call it. I’m not a big changer. I don’t like change. Change is scary. Well, not all change. Quarters are pretty cool, even if you can’t do anything with them.
Since we started this site, I’ve had a routine as to when I post. Calendar Man on Mondays, long form stuff on Wednesdays and Fridays with other stuff sprinkled within. Well, the Friday stuff dropped off a few months ago, as did the stuff in between, leaving me with just Wednesday. Now, unfortunately, that’s on the verge of getting dropped too as I’m starting to get tired. It happens. We all have lulls. I’ve been pretty good at fighting them, but the train is presently pulling into lull station and on it, I see a very comfy chair with my name on it.
The problem is that I know me and if I get on that train, the train that leads to Indefinite Hiatus land, I’ll never come back. I’m kind of weird that way. I don’t want to pull a Diane, a reference that was lost on Bill, thereby damning him to the Third Circle of No Friendship With Binky until he can catch up on Cheers and think about what he’s done. I don’t want to be a Diane, even if it means bringing the writing equivalent of Kelsey Grammar or Kirstie Alley to the site. On second thought, that would be pretty amazing. Maybe I should get on that train, after all.
What I’m getting to, in a messy and convoluted fashion, is that I’m going to start changing things up around here. I want to move away from scheduled long form posts to only doing long form posts when what I’m playing warrants it. In between I’d like to get back to smaller posts regarding current things. They will probably be snarky. In my dreams, I am the Sean O’Neal of gaming posts. They are good dreams, not like the ones with the octopuses. Well, those are good too, just very, very different.
I wanted to tell you this because even though we don’t get paid for this and are doing it just for the funsies at the moment, I feel a responsibility to you, gentle reader, to let you know that I haven’t fallen off of the planet. You take time to come here and be a part of this big mess and I’d feel bad if you were left hanging. That’s just me though, Bill and Todd could give a good god damn. You probably don’t care, but I get weird about things. It’s who I am.
So, yeah, games! As for that Xbone reveal, I’m just gonna leave this here:
