Happy November everyone and good luck to those of you attempting the NaNoWriMo this year.
It’s been a busy few months, the unrelenting stream of work which I had hoped would die down has naturally done the complete opposite. The winter months tend to be more relax so fingers crossed on that front.
Additionally I am on the brink of starting an ILM course that will take place over 18 months. I’m still not sure I’m completely comfortable being a line manager of people, it’s a rather alien concept to me.
Hopefully I’ll muddle through it in the correct manner.
In PC gaming news the clan has been playing a mixture of Dirty Bomb, ARK: Survival Evolved and WaitingForBlizzardToSendOverwatchInvites.
Despite my original lack of enjoyment in playing Dirty Bomb I’ve enjoyed it a little more since the recent updates and expect to continue playing for so time to come, of course when OverWatch drops there is likely to be a sudden drop in players trying the new kid on the Team-based FPS block.
I’ve been chipping away at some of my game backlog on Steam, I recently completed the Super Sanctum TD story and then worked through the achievements. I’m please that it has been completed as there are many games whose achievements are either impossible or require multiplayer elements. Or in the case of CIV 5 require countless play-throughs to even attempt them, maybe those can go on my 2017 list 🙂
In table top gaming news, we have been playing quite a few new titles, we have attempted to make the two-monthly Counters event which I encourage you to go and visit if you enjoy game and live close enough to Pontypridd.
Additionally we have started attending a local board gaming club on an adhoc basis, which is nice to get to play with some other players outside of our usual circles.
In August I got my first new tattoo in 17 years the design had been on my mind for about 5 years and I’m glad that I got it finally done. Of course it’s a dangerous hobby and last week I ended up getting another one , this time it was the logo of one of my favourite bands. Again I was very pleased with the final look, there was more shading than I first thought but it really does work very well.
