November. Will it be the longest month of my life?

I know I haven’t posted all that much in the recent past. And because of that I feel sorry, but you might want to get used to it.

I am working my way through Dark Souls and will hopefully have a review in the near(ish) future. But after that who knows what will happen. You might be wondering way I won’t have as much coming up, and so I’ll tell you.

Next month I will be doing NaNoWriMo. What that means is that during the month of November I have to write a 50,000 word novel, and alongside of doing so I will still be playing games. And some of the games will be MASSIVE, and will take a lot of time. And I would like to write review for the games I’ll be playing, but I might not be able to get to that until December.

Hopefully by the end of November I will still have my sanity.

As always, thanks for reading.

Enslaved (2010), video game review.

Based loosely off a 16th century Chinese novel, Enslaved tells the story of a future in which you can’t go twenty minutes without running in to a malevolent machine wishing to kill you, or slavers ready to kidnap you. The world has been taken over by mechs, and the few survivors that aren’t slavers or the enslaved are scattered across the world in small pockets, desperately trying to survive. You control Monkey; Monkey is a loner. Moving form one place to the next he never stays in any one place for too long for fear that he might be attacked bymechs, or picked up by slaves. Unfortunately no one can avoid danger for long. Read the rest of this entry
