A gamer diary: Vigilante8 fails at blogging



So here I am, a gamer.

There's already a long time since I visited this site for the first time and discovered something incredible about being a gamer: That the other gamers like to talk about games in adition to playing then. What a joy!

But that's old news, actually, that's not even news, just a fact. And here I was, lurking on Dtoid, reading, laughing and sometimes commenting. Alaways wanting to actually make part of this little garden that I found on the back of my hobby, gamers taking their times to write about games, or things that have something to do with games...or...I don't know...other gamers...


I like minimalism, also games.

After a long time delaying my first try out, I finally did it! I picked one of the monthly musing themes and wrote the first thing I could imagine... it was almost random and not quite good, but it felt good after I realised that I was finally DOING something other than, well...lurking.

I looked to my very first blogg post and smiled...full of errors, full of empty spaces on a theme that I don't really understand... still smiling.


The "boss" thing is like in "the boss at the end of the dungeon", the aweseome character of the game that we all want to meet..

I don't really know how, but that very first try out, end up being published. There's no way I could write just how surprised ( and happy ) I was when I saw that thing on the front page. Again, what a joy!

After finally entering the community ( for real ) things were supposed to get better, but that's not what happened. That first post, the one that I was so proud, started to bug me every time I entered Dtoid. Alaways saing: "There's already one month since your first post...", "Two months now...", "Third in a row!!!"

I was again failing at blogging, oh noes!


Fail at being funny too...

So here I am, a gamer. Doing the one thing I could do (here) that's better than nothing. Writing about being a gamer. The kind of gamer that I am.


Well then...hello again Dtoid! Now I'm really here.


Played today: A freaking lot of Uncharted 2 multiplayer deathmatches and a little of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Not playable but from a game: Grand Theft Auto 4 and Shadow Of The Colossus soundtrack. So good.
