Back To The Regular Broadcasting Schedule

Welcome to the new year. It's just like the last one, except you're quite likely hungover whilst I'm not. Now that I've completed my challenge of besting the number of posts for 2011 — by one but that still counts — I thought I would reward myself by doing something some people have been doing for years and I'm… well… just behind the curve in that regard. Time to play the catch-up game.

"Steam - Updating - 45% complete"

I have a lot of games on my to-play list and now is as good a time as any to play some of those. Checking the Steam website I see that Fallout: New Vegas is on -40% sale which means I can get it for £5.99 until the 5th of January. That's a good place to start, right? I should get myself an Xbox 360 controller as well, not that there's anything wrong with a keyboard and mouse aside for the fact that I suck incredible with them. And I thought I would save myself the headache of trying to get to grips the keyboard+mouse scheme.

"Installation complete"

Oh… my… deity. There's so many games here! Oh, look! There's Fable: The Lost Chapters on sale! The Binding of Isaac for less than a pound! Ooooh, Age of Empires III: Complete Collection! And the Far Cry franchise for -34~75%!

As I collapse on the floor in a drooling spastic pile of what used to be a man, somewhere deep — deep, deep — inside me, the sane me realises that I will never be able to play all of these games. But I should be able to start getting that list of mine smaller.

Fallout: New Vegas, £5.99, yes please, don't mind if I do. [add to cart] Deus Ex: Human Revolution, £3.74 [add to cart] Proceed to checkout.

"Fallout: New Vegas - 14%, 2.1 MB/s"

Now… we wait. And whilst we do I thought I would explain the reason for the title this time. From now on — having completed my challenge of awesomeness sans slight cheating — I am going to try to maintain a writing schedule of 1-2 posts per week. Obviously, since I'm me you can assume that anything I say should be taken with a grain — or two — of salt. But you get the general idea. It's just too much work to write every day, unless I got… you know… actually paid for it, then it would be a different story of course. Hopefully the quality of posts should be more consistent and not include as many "Here's a video" -type posts but again… not making any promises though.

Oh hai, my name is Mr. McStabby.
