Table top gaming and blogging?

A few things.

1.) This Blog spot thing really confuses the crap out of me, my web design job has me working mainly in word-press. I chose Blog spot(?) because I like being able to use my Google account and I can more easily share my blog with other people in the 40K hobby.

2.) I think Video Games have fallen out of their 'Golden Age' now and have become quite dull and boring. I suppose its only a matter of time before this happened though. My only hope for them is the current Indy Developer movement and the push to eliminate publishers in order to keep creativity to where it needs to be. Also EA is a terrible company that represents all things evil in this industry and you should never work for them.

3.) I spend only a few hours a week now playing video games. I've decided to go play more 'traditional' games like Warhammer 40,000 and Dungeons and Dragons. As someone who has studied game design I think its important to play games such as these as Warhammer and D&D are the bases for most RTS and RPG games and how all of there mechanics work. So I plan to blog more about my experience in these games and several others, and maybe post some pictures of my armies and miniatures I've painted. Heck maybe even a battle report.... maybe....

Unproductive productivity.

I have programmed nothing, I have been lazier then lazy can be lately when it comes to making games. Instead of been doing fun things like working! Also I have been playing more table top games then video games recently. Which has been an odd change of pace but the refreshing view and games offered by a non-digital medium is pretty cool and has done a lot to help bring out inspiration I've been lacking in for so long. So this week. This week I will hopefully post something fun and productive. Like a game or something....
