It's been a while, I know! At least 6 months since I last did a clog (yes not this trendy new cblog name). I've been working away at a very large, very well known UK IT
retailer advising people on product compatibility and full custom systems. Great fun, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop every day. Any other job, I fail at. Believe!
This job however great, leaves me with very little time to spend gaming. I find myself playing more and more minigames inbetween work, which is great for keeping the old skillz up but awful considering I cannot engross myself in a game and have a life at the same time. Somewhat ironic if you consider my username, which is Tempus and means "Time" in latin. Something I never have enough of!
To add to this, the day I moved in to my new apartment (beginning of feb) my graphics card decided to keel over and die on me, rendering my 24" widescreen useless for any 3D application. Honestly, all I wanted was to get through CoD4 and go through Bioshock once more in those three weeks where I didn't have net access. And as good as it is, having your own place - it means money that would have been spare for, I dunno, a new graphics card let's say, is now spent on what I consider ridiculously overpriced.... bills.
Growing up sucks! Long gone are the days where I would just spend a summer going through a final fantasy game, or going through every level of lemmings just for a giggle. Nowadays it's Mario Minigames on the way to work, Tetris at lunch and possibly a game of Mario Kart with my good lady in the evening. I really miss chasing the crap out of people with a magnum on HL2 DM, watching as their blood spatters across a wall, the sound of a multikill and everyone's favourite, the headshot.
My good friend David Houghton is visiting for the weekend. I'll be sure to try and get some form of dodgy photos, video surveillance and classic quotations from him. That and VS Street Fighter II Turbo on the SNES will definitely have to come out if I stand any chance of even getting a punch in this Friday...
It's great to see Dtoid so busy, I don't comment or clog like I used to but I'm here every day, lurking away at work reading for teh lulz, keep up the good work people :)
