Blog Journal Volume 55: The Faux-People

The Sims 4: Straight the point! While The Sims 4 is far too expensive for me at this moment in time, and doesn't seem worth the price in any case, I'll simply do the best I can and make a Content Rundown based on videos, wikis, and the like.

Please Note: I won't be able to get everything and will exclude player created aspects of the game for obvious reasons. (Far too many.)

Other Games: I've made a pact with myself (lol) to not make promises about various games I've been reviewing. I'll simply state what I'm busy with at the moment, how far I am and if I'm reviewing them. Okay?

Racing Games: I've realised that, besides Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, we've done very little racing games. I hope to change that soon with many reviews of racing games.

Assorted Games: Look, I've got far too many games to finish and way too little time to finish them. I'll see which ones I get done, but for now, let's stick with the most current games. Like The Sims 4.

Blog Journal Volume 54: Vampire!

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines: Good gosh, that's a long title. Anyway, I finished up the rough draft for the Areas of Concern for the Content Rundown. 

A bit of a note to InfamousPotato: Unfortunately, I had to rush through the videos a bit so not *all* of the content will be mentioned, but the vast majority will be. Sorry for the lack of completeness, I was just very busy with work and the like.

The Sims 4: While the game itself seems to be considerably stripped down from the previous instalments (to a fault), the content seems to have gotten slightly worse, with sims able to develop romantic relationships all on their own without help from the player...which may be a problem for those looking to avoid homosexual relationships.

Anyhoo, I'm not gonna dwell on that topic for *obvious reasons* and will just say that I am gonna start with a Content Rundown for The Sims 4 A.S.A.P!

Blog: Sorry if this blog and Lyriticus are quiet as of late. I've just been through an incredibly crazy year and need to recuperate. Every year is getting tougher than the last and I sincerely hoped this one would be different, but no. Things just get harder.

In any case, Lyriticus may face some down time due to a lack of time to work on it. I know the blog has a huge amount of potential, but you can't fly two airplanes at once, if you catch my drift.

The bottom line is that I'm sincerely trying to keep the blogs afloat, but due to things happening in real life and burnout from other responsibilities, it's a bit difficult. This is not an excuse and I WILL keep the blogs alive, but just understand that I can't always post and when I do, it may not be as fresh as it once was.

Blog Journal Volume 53: The Waking Dead

Good news everybody! I'm back on the internet after moving and ready to get back to reviewing...in spite of being sick. Yep. 

The Walking Dead Season Two: Now that all the episodes have been released, I can finalise the review of the whole season and post it. Tune in this Wednesday for it.

System Shock 2: No, I've not forgotten about this game, I've just gotten distracted and unable to finish up the review and by extension, the game itself.

StarCraft II Wings of Liberty: I'm just never able to finish this game. Let's hope I can change that sometime before the year ends.

Fallout 3: I've yet to finish this game as well, but once again, I've not forgotten about it and it will be reviewed soonish.

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines: This one may take a while to finish up, but rest assured, it will be done as well.
