Unfortunately, I’m going to have to concede that I simply do not have the time to post regularly for the time being. I’ve been struggling to maintain a normal life complete with my full-time job, my new wife, keeping the house in order, and all the other auxiliary aspects that make life what it is, and that is beautiful. On top of all this, I have also been taking classes towards an MBA Certificate at a local college. While i have been able to maintain posting, and prerequisite gaming to post about, during this time, I am no longer able to do so since I have opted to take on the final two courses concurrently, as they are only offered during the summer trimester. Should I have only taken one of the courses, I would have been forced to wait an entire year until the remaining course is offered again. While Gaming and Game writing is AWESOME, my personal career has waited far too long to begin with.
So I must leave you all, at least for about 2 months until the courses have completed. With this departure, I leave you with the above video which I admit may be a bit out of character, especially for those of you who know me personally 🙂 And yet, you should find it quite fitting at the same time. I have recently become a proponent of promoting Video Games as Art. You can see it all design aspects, from environment design, dialogue writing, and theme music composing. Last November I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a “Video Games Live” concert, which I HIGHLY suggest everyone in my readership attend as well! By hearing the music performed in such a way along side the visuals of each respective game was absolutely stunning and solidified my stance of the maturation of gaming as a medium of entertainment and art. Maybe this time away will allow me to refocus my blogging efforts from Gaming News to Gaming Commentary with a focus on Social Impact and the Arts. We shall see!
So yes, friends, it is time for me to say goodbye. But just for now, and I promise to be back as soon as I can!
Until then, #RespectTheGame !
