Hello all. I'm back after my week hiatus. Thanks to Larx for covering my rear last week as I've been dealing with flu/sinus infection/upper respiratory infection for myself and then my wife. But things are getting back to normal and I'm back.
I figured I'd talk a bit about just not having time like I used to for video games. That's become apparent with release of Monster Hunter: World. It's my first time with a Monster Hunter title and let me just say I absolutely love it! The fighting, the monsters, the loot, I love everything about it. When I'm playing it, it's one of my favorite games in recent memory.
I do have one problem with the game, although if I'm being honest, it's more a problem with me than the game itself. That problem being, I feel for me to get maximum enjoyment from MH, I need a lot of time to play it. I want to be able to explore every nook and cranny. I want to be prepared and take my time when I'm fighting a difficult monster. I want to be able to join people on their hunts, but I just don't have the time. I've been gaming in 45 minute increments at most recently due to the busy day to day parts of life. That just isn't enough time to thoroughly enjoy a game such as MH.
As things stand, I'm hopeful life slows down a bit here in the near future and I look forward to being able to dive into MH balls deep. For the time being, I'm sticking with a return to the Bioshock series. A lovely series that is perfect for my small gaming times and still holds up really well. I still love the series and am enjoying myself immensely. Still, I hope to see you all on the hunt some day!
* - Kyle Yadlosky goes into detail about how he became a man. I personally became a man while listening to NSync and Backstreet Boys playing hide the salami. Kyle on the other hand became a man because of fighting games. Now I'm not 100% sure what's going on here, but I know I love it and it makes me feel funny in my pants
