The Guild

I love The Guild. Especially when they do things like this:

Vork is full of win in this :)

Decisions, Confusion, and a Lack of Conviction

Comic Con was this past weekend, and I jealously read every tweet/facebook post/blog/website article detailing it. I've promised myself that one of these years I really am going to go. In the meantime, all the talk of Comic Con reminded me of PAX. That, in turn, reminded me of Dragon Age and how much I enjoyed that game. It's going to take a lot to top it. This leads to my current dilemma - what game to play?

I've several games on my computer that I can play - in fact I've started all of them. None of them are filling that game need that I have in my soul right now. I find myself bouncing back and forth between games, playing, but not satisfied. I need a good story. An RPG that is more R than G, if that makes any sense. A good book would do the same thing but books are too short - I can make a good RPG game last for a year. I read entire book series in days.

Another alternative would be for me to return to my writing. I have several stories that I've started, that have a lot of promise, but I just haven't finished them. I'm not really sure why. Maybe there's a little fear that no one outside of, well, me, would like the stories when finished. Or worse - that even I wouldn't like them. Maybe I just have no motivation. Maybe I'm just lazy. Yeah, that sounds right.

So, that leads me back to what game to play - I need a lengthy RPG with a strong emphasis on story that I haven't already played. Any suggestions?

Time Flies On

I take a week's vacation, start a new job, and next thing I know July is almost past and I haven't posted in months! Things have been crazy, settling into the new job and all. I won't bore with details - but I will post later with some game and book reviews.
