Hello, 2016!

happy new year neon

Happy 2016, friends! I hope everyone had a safe and silly ringing in of the new year.

I managed to stay awake until midnight (a feat in and of itself), then promptly fell asleep for ten hours.

Look at me go.

However I feel pretty good because on this first day of this new year, I managed to put into practice some of my recently made gaming resolutions. I have to say, it felt pleasantly productive. Now the challenge is in putting those changes into regular practice and turning them into a habit. It apparently takes three weeks to form a habit, and I feel like that’s a manageable chunk of time.

When I think about what 2016 holds (game-wise) I’m genuinely excited. There are so many games we know about (and who knows how many we don’t) on schedule for release this year, and I think we are in for some fascinating experiences.

If I had to call out one game in particular that leads my excite-o-meter, it’s Dishonored 2. The first game took me by surprise and I loved it. I can’t wait to see where the sequel takes us.

But most of all, I can’t wait to find out what certain developers are working on. I’d love to hear more from the following in particular:

Sucker Punch Productions
Irrational Games (in whatever form the company currently exists)

So with that I ask: what are you looking forward to in 2016? A specific game that’s already been announced? An announcement from a particular developer? Or are you hoping for a happy surprise out of the blue?

No matter what you hope for, I wish each of you a safe and prosperous new year.

Cheers, friends.

  2. Hey Rebekah, mind if I ask you a question? A month ago I changed my my wordpress.com site over to a self hosted site. I transferred my wordpress followers over (you are one of course!) and I was wondering: do you still receive notifications from WordPress reader about my new blogs? I’m curious, as I saw you had followed my site again! I’m afraid transferring to wordpress.org meant that followers don’t get updates anymore! Thanks, Yvonne


    • I believe I am getting the notifications, but I also think I followed you again at your new site…so maybe that’s why? When did you switch over? I can check my email archives to let you know for sure.


      • I switched over at December 2nd, and yes, you did follow me again. I saw it at the time but didn’t realize why. My visitor count has been down some 30% since the move, but I had no idea why. I accidently stumbled across the reason this weekend: because WordPress.com readers don’t get notifications, or so the article said!


        • Oh wow. Wait, that doesn’t make sense. The people who follow my site (it’s a WordPress.com site) get notifications. I suggest you follow your own site so you always know what notifications are sent out. I did that a while back and I always feel better knowing the notification was sent.

          I’m looking back through my email, but I don’t think I’m getting the notifications regularly even though I followed you anew. I’m sorry it’s not working properly. :(


  3. I’m excited for all of it, but mostly excited for the opportunity to play more than I did in 2015. Shouldn’t be too hard. Game on!
