    All Work and No Play Makes No Room For Gaming

    Post by FreakyRO on Thu Dec 15, 2016 3:19 pm

    Hey there everybody. It has been a while since I have graced the 'casuals' with my presence. Very Happy I just wanted to drop by and let you guys know that I miss you all and wish we could get together more. I am sure you guys all get together, I just mean I wish I could join you more. Unfortunately, I am working a lot. We need to pay off the move - who'd a thought that moving cross country is so expensive - and my wife is working on starting her own business, so that has it's pros and cons.

    Anyway, all this time working and I still have time to play a little. I did pick up Titanfall 2 and BF 1. I thoroughly enjoy both of those games. The story in TF 2 was awesome and exactly what I wanted. Haven't finished the BF1 yet, but the online play is fun. Also been trying to clean up a little of the backlog. Working on Microsoft Solitaire since that went mobile on iOS and knocking out some 2-in-1s with some Rare Replay titles. Currently trying to run through Banjo-Kazooie as fast as possible.

    Unfortunately, I was not able to make my goal of 200K by the end of this year. It is just not possible. Oh well, I guess that's what happens when you have to be a responsible adult and stuff. Anyway, I hope everybody's holidays are going well. Keep on gaming, and if you do happen to see me online, don't be afraid to invite me or start a party. I'm usually always down to chat.

    Dude!!! I've missed playing with you too but totally understand all that adult crap! Over the fall I purchased my first home and it's been weird. Since I met my wife we had always rented and then decided to see if we would qualify for a mortgage. We did and moved in towards the middle of October.

    I've got to be better about initiating contact with you because I've seen you on here and there but figured you had either grown tired of us or just busy. We've basically decided to narrow down our gaming time to a single game per month. Right now we're working on Minecraft and I believe if we get far enough we'll migrate to the Xbox One version. There is still much to do though.

    I console-shared with my buddy when he came over my house a couple of weekends ago and snagged Titanfall 2, Evolve, Battlefield 1 and another game I believe. I haven't played any of them yet because I've been tied to whatever we're boosting / playing on Monday/Friday nights as well as working on  my to-do list challenge.

    Looking forward to catching up soon man! Glad you took the time to stop in to visit us "casuals" Smile

    Always looking to boost and/or play co-op so if you've got a game in mind, send me a message and I'll let you know if I've got it and would like to boost.

    Eh, no sweat... glad you're still hanging around and checking in from time to time. We are the casual gamers after all, so there's that. I've been so busy I've almost given up on my gaming blog, though I really would like to get back to it on at least a monthly basis, or every other week. Life gets busy, and then one day it's not... hopefully. ;-)
