Gaming: May 2011’s Games

Far later than intended, we have the May round-up posts, where I write a little about all the media I consumed throughout the month (June’s will hopefully go up next week, but haven’t been worked on at all yet). I’ve already published the posts for television, film and books, so we finish the set with the month’s gaming.

I like to include a comment for these portraits but don't really have anything to say beyond saying that I have nothing to say.

The absence of certain games in the above image – Dragon Age: Origins and at least one out of Fallout 3, The Sims 3 or Left 4 Dead 2 – should be an indicator that I’m still not back into the routine I devised at the end of March, even though I played slightly more games than I did in April. That means I’ve still only managed it for one week in the past two a bit months, and haven’t actually done it for a single week since I decided to do so, which is daft. Oh well, onto the round-up:

Film: May 2011’s Films

Far later than intended, we have the May round-up posts, where I write a little about all the media I consumed throughout the month (June’s will hopefully go up next week, but haven’t been worked on at all yet). This month started with television and now we’re looking at the films I watched.

Yep, there are actually people here this month.

I watched films this month, hooray! In April I managed to not watch any films at all, so this a step up. I decided that on my days off I could watch a film in place of my morning TV episode, seeing as time’s not as much of a factor as it is on a work day. Not necessarily every day as I don’t have quite that many unwatched films, but it’s still a good time for me to watch a film if I have one. I’ve also made the effort to update the draft of this post every time I watch a film rather than try to assemble it all from memory at the end of the month, and this new way worked much better. Here’s what I watched:

Film: March 2011’s Films

Here we have the last of the March round-up posts. This month we kicked off with the books I read, followed by the games I played and the TV I watched. Now it’s time for the films I viewed.

As ever, watching so few films does mean that making the title image is pretty darn simple.

Five films then, two more than February’s meagre haul but two less than January’s, which was already a little on the low side. Oh well, here’s what they were:

Gaming: March 2011’s Games

On time for once (and coming straight on the heels of February’s), here we have the March round-up posts. This month we kicked off with the books I read and now it’s time for the games I played:

Squashing twelve separate images into a 425x90 image is kind of difficult. Its also incredibly time-consuming, comprable to the amount of time it takes to write the entire post. In fact I spend a fairly ridiculous amount of time assembling the images for each blog post.

Images sources: Conan, Donkey Kong, Benny, Trip, Kane, a wizard, Liu Kang, Tommy, Nathan, Randy and Father Mother.

I think I’ve got am okay system in place now for gaming, but I’ll cover that in the goals section at the bottom of this post. Let’s get straight to the gaming then:

Gaming: February 2011’s Games

March 25, 2011 3 comments

I’m still catching up with these, but unless procrastination gets the better of me March’s posts will arrive promptly in April once I’m off work (so probably the 6th onwards). This month the first monthly review post will cover gaming (which was last in January), followed by television, film and ending with the month’s reading.

Double the faces this month.

I’ve still not made any major alterations to my gaming time, still getting in just a couple of hours on non-work days, which meant I played games on sixteen days in February (the four days on, four days off schedule meant I only worked twelve days). I’ve had some thoughts on ways to rearrange my free time but that won’t kick in until March at least, so I won’t cover it here. Without further ado, here’s what I played:

Gaming: January 2011’s Games

When I needed a small character image for Dead Rising 2 there was really only one choice.

Image sources: Predator, weird pred-alien thing, Slappy, Harry and Sackbot.

I think I’m still trying to find a decent for rhythm for when I play games. I’d still say I don’t have time on work days and am happy with how I make use of those few hours of free time, but I think the days I’m off work still need some adjustment. As it stands gaming is how I finish off the day, which means if one or more of the things that precede it take up more time than they should then I play less, and a lot of the time I won’t start playing anything until two or three hours before bed. That still means completing an average eight-ten hour game in a few nights but is far removed from the time I used to spend gaming (and which I’d like to again).

It’s something I’m still thinking on, so here’s what I managed to play in January:

“If We Don’t, Remember Me”

December 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Tears in Rain

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. … Time to die.”

Blade Runner (1982)

The above is an example of a typical post from the wonderful Tumblr blog, “If We Don’t, Remember Me“*; a key quote from a great film and an image just animated enough to preserve that moment. I’ve been following it for a couple of months now and every update is a treat, so even though most of the web has long since linked to the blog I felt like it deserved being mentioned here in my tiny corner. I’d only held off doing so because any post would amount to nothing more than a link – in fact it’s the kind of thing perfectly suited to Tumblr and its re-blogging option – and I don’t want this blog dominated by simple link posts.

However, with yet another image posted to the blog from Blade Runner (a film I rather like) and attached to a quote I love I decided it’s fine to do a little link post for something special. So go to the blog and enjoy.

* The quote used for the blog’s title is apparently from the 1955 film Kiss Me Deadly, which I haven’t seen.
