Time to Loot Journal: September 2020

It’s hard to believe we’re so far through the year. Just three months remain before we flip 2020 the bird and put it firmly in the rear view. Yet as hard as it is to conceive of how little of 2020 remains… It’s also been quite the long year already. It’s sometimes hard to remember

Time to Loot Journal: August 2020

Whoa– Lookee dere! That there featured image is something other than a Cities: Skylines screenshot for the first time in… *checks* …a while! It’s breaking a four-month stretch of Cities. It’s from Control which I’ve just picked up over the weekend and have now spent almost 8 hours in already. I do feel a little

Time to Loot Journal: July 2020

July is over. August is here! Normally — it would be the time of Blaugust. And it still is, in a manner of speaking, but we also did classic Blaugust earlier in the year as Blapril. So rather than a repeat, Blaugust this year is a Promptapalooza! And Belghast has already kicked us off with

Time to Loot Journal: May 2020

New Zealand has seen at least the promise of a return to normalcy this month. We’ve run a consecutive streak of 9 days with no new cases. There is in fact only 1 active known case in the country. While there is still an acknowledgement that the risk of silent spread remains present — as

Time to Loot Journal: Blapril 2020

While not something I’m going to dwell on — I think I will at least acknowledge that the COVID-19 lockdown is finally getting to me. Not in any serious, major ways. Rather just I note that my motivation levels are down, with each day increasingly more difficult than the last to get down to doing

Playing Alone Together

One thing I’ve been reminded of lately; games don’t have to explicitly include multiplayer to be a shared experience. I’ve mentioned before, but my brother is staying with my family while New Zealand is in lockdown. While both gamers, we often have divergent tastes in games, particularly for some reason, when it comes to multiplayer
