So, if you listen to my last few episodes of The BladedTech Show, you’ll know that I recently started my first job.
However, playing video games seems to be a task now than something I just do. I have to be more careful in picking what games I play due to the time and money it takes to play the game. Also, I like completely different games now than I did before I worked. A prime example is that I used to love long story-driven games, but, now, I just want a cool game I can experience in chunks and be satisfied with.
Oh? And about the time? That’s become a real hassle too. I find myself drifting more and more towards my PC, even though it barely plays today’s hits because it’s just…easier. I know that my sound as if I’m lazy, but most of the time, I’m sitting at my computer already when I have free time and is less of a hassle in general. I mean, I love the games on my Xbox One, but I feel like it takes too long to actually getting to the games I like.
Oh, and another thing, sales are a big factor on what games I play. In fact, this past Friday, I picked up Goat Simulator (with GoatZ), Polarity, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings – Enhanced Edition, The Witcher Enhanced Edition and Homefront. Why? Well, because I could purchase the aforementioned titles at a discount that I already had some interest in playing. Xbox and PlayStation may claim they have great sales, but when I can buy all those games for about $19, those sales fall flat in comparison.
So, this time, I want to hear from you guys on what you do to make time for games and what you do to save up for big releases such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Until next time, you can check out some articles from the other fine folks at Proven Gamer as well as podcasts like Trophy Whores, Press X To Win, and my podcast, The BladedTech Show.
See you soon, but first, I’ll be at work.
