Circling Forward 8-4-17: The One Where I Try To Explain The Lack Of Updates Lately

At the time of this writing, it’s been over a week since my last post. That doesn’t seem too bad, but it’s been even longer since I’ve posted consistently. No, I haven’t stopped writing or lost interest, but it has been harder to find the time to do it. I’m hoping to be able to explain exactly what’s going on, as well as talk a little about what I’ve been playing lately. So, let’s get to it.  Continue reading

Circling Forward 4-22-17: The One Where I’m Still Alive

It feels like it’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. Looking at my home page as I write this, it’s apparently been nine days since my last post, which I guess isn’t too bad. But, between constant delays of Dragon Age: Origins Check-In Week 5 and me missing Random Game Wednesdays this week, I thought it would be a good idea to address what’s going on. Don’t worry, in theory it will be smooth sailing for the foreseeable future. Continue reading

Circling Forward 11-29-16: The One Before The Game Awards

You might remember that last week, I mentioned that I would be posting a first impressions piece on Pokemon Sun and Moon. Well, I ran into one little problem with that. I kept playing the game instead of writing about it. I’m now just about twenty hours into the game and have beaten three out of the four kahunas. At this point, “first impressions” doesn’t really make any sense, so I’ve decided instead to wait until I’ve beaten the game and post a full review. Sorry about the wait for Pokemon content, but it’ll be a better read this way, I think. Continue reading

Circling Forward 11-22-16, The One Where I’m Excited About Everything

Did you know that it’s been 3852 days since Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced? Back then, it wasn’t even clear what that game was. Was it another game in the Final Fantasy XIII universe? It didn’t sound like it, or look like it, but then why was it called “XIII”? And Versus what? But, after a decade of development, that kind of doesn’t matter anymore. It missed the entire generation of consoles it was originally supposed to be out on and got a name change. As hard as it is to believe, after all that time, Final Fantasy XV is out in a week. Continue reading

Circling Forward 11-14-16, The One Where I Play A Lot Of Animal Crossing: New Leaf

I never would have guessed that I’d be spending the majority of my free time in November 2016 playing 2012’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf. But, as I’m sure most of you are aware, a big update to the game came out a little under two weeks ago, and suddenly it’s become part of my daily routine again.  The funny thing about it, is that although the update did add substantial content, most of what I’ve been doing I could have been doing the whole time.
