Not only have I failed to post recently, my games are suffering harshly from my increase in stress and work.
Ironically, Lash La Rue has improved greatly due to its source of positive procrastination, which means that my negative procrastination; the playing of games has fallen of recent.
I turned on my computer for the first time in ages and played some Strong Bad, as I cannot start playing Telltale's Wallace and Gromit without finishing the Strong Bad series, but it felt strange and wrong, and although I didn't have any work to be doing, I could not continue playing it.
Similarly my console gaming is down to possibly a record low, I have not even touched Resident Evil 5 yet, granted I did play a little Fallout last night, and delighted in a chapter of Left 4 Dead while Tim was home, however the only real game I've been playing is Peggle deluxe on the 360, it's become my new Freecell, an addiction I can never lose until I become a professor of Peggle and finish every challenge.
Which makes me think over the last few months and has me question, have I simply become a casual gamer, I divulged in games like Zuma, and Jewel Quest over Fallout and Resident Evil, I play more time on Solitaire on my netbook over doing anything productive, as a former hardcore gamer it has me worried, questioning if I am slowly getting over gaming, and progressing to a state where short-term quick games are a thing of the future *gulp*
Update on Eidos pumpkin competition: yes they may be busy with their take-over, but I still don't have my damn prize!
