To get the awkwardness out of the way: yes that’s me on the outside and the inside of the mirror. It was also a decade ago, so I don’t look like that anymore. The image was chosen due to some heavy introspection over the past week.
I’ve been rooting around inside my head to see how I can improve myself. I need to be more uncomfortable. I need to be poking around the aspects of life that I have shied away from too much in the past chunk of years.
Things are stirring.
I knew when I let music back in this would happen.
Anyway, I am still gameless. I mean, I have the games, I just haven’t played any. I’m going to plop down and try to play anything today. Even if it is for ten minutes. Worse case scenario I feel a little, well, worse, but at least I will have actively tried.
I’m all about trying right now.
This week finally brings us the release of What Remains of Edith Finch, a game I’ve been looking forward to for years, and I’d love to be able to give it a go. I know it’s in first person, but I’m so excited for the experience, I’m willing to try it, health issues be darned.
Also, something wonderful happened this weekend: I found out that the entire three+ hour score of Everything was released on Steam. My laptop can’t run 99% of the games on Steam, but I bought the game again just so I could get the DLC of the score. All told, the game and score cost well under $20 and was entirely worth it. Everything has one of the most amazing scores I’ve heard in years and, from the moment I played the game, I knew I had to find a way to get it.
I got it.
This morning was all about medical stuff, but I’m already looking forward to trying my hand at something today. Even if I can’t manage it, at least I can try. Eventually, I have to be able to get back to a decent gaming schedule. I can not be hopeless forever!
So, while today is a short one, that’s all I have to report. My goal: to keep trying to push my comfort zone into a new shape.
What will you be playing this week? Any new releases you are looking forward to?
