This was going to be a bit of an amble about how various games have marked key points in my life...a bit of nostalgia brought about by playing the Final Fantasy VII Remake (a mere 21 years after playing the original), however as part of the research for that I came across something really quite fascinating.
I think this is the first time I've worked from home for a prolonged period of time, without having serious medical issues. Since Tuesday, Yell have been remote working all employees that are able to, and that includes all of IT.
An attempt to reclaim a much-maligned word. A better fit than "resolutions" for these...
1 - Regain 2nd Cat Race License
In theory I should have already started the campaign on this, however as I type this while the 2020 race season has begun, there have been no races organised locally. I haven't raced since June 2018, so as of the 1st December 2019 I lost my 2nd cat race license...so I'll need 40 points to get back up there before the end of November. Ideally I'll get it done way before that.
New Years Resolutions 2019
1) Financial Stability
This is a game that has been in "Early Access" for a while, but was realeased in full early on this month...most notably (for me) on the Switch. It's been descibed a "Rogue-lite", "Metroid-vania" and "Dark Souls-esque". It's not the sort of game I normally gravitate to, however I'd seen a couple of reviews, and also some real-world gameplay footage (notably Eurogamers "Lets Play"), who tend to be on a skill/reaction level to myself.
2018 is going to be a very strange year for me. There is one big item looming, and it’s going to have impacts across the board. While the rest of the world is focused on a wedding in May, key thing for me is to turn up to Hurley in October...mainly for Gill’s sake.
So, 5 days into what will probably be 6 weeks without my primary hand, and I'm finding it a quite frustrating experience. I can't write, use a mouse (other than club-handed in my right hand), and a myriad of other common actions that you typically use both hands for (cutting up food being one. Fortunately most of my shoes have elastic laces...)
In order to try and get a modicum of productivity going, I've picked up a cheap Windows tablet PC
