I’ve been quite listless when it comes to gaming lately. The future looks promising and I’ve poured quite a bit into upcoming games but it’s been a bit of a struggle to find something to grab hold of and lose myself to.
It’s a combination of my personal life issues and compelling television shows. My girlfriend and I are struggling to figure out whether we can stand each other’s differing opinions and philosophies in life. I’ve also found myself wanting to watch more television these days. From catching up with Archer, continuing The Wire and losing myself to excitement that is the World Cup.
You can’t fault me for not trying to find a compelling game though. I tried to get into The Last Remnant but the writing and voice acting was enough to deflate my enthusiasm for the title. I decided to throw in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker from the MGS: HD Collection but I haven’t gone back to it after the slow start. I’ve also started Crashmo and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask in an attempt to kickstart something.
Alas nothing has grabbed hold for more than three days thus far.
I’m not bored of gaming. Far from it. I continue to look forward to Destiny but this summer lull is hitting me pretty hard.
