Sorry For My Absence!


As regular readers probably noticed I’ve been awfully quiet for the past week! For that I can only but apologise. Sadly about a week ago I picked up some bloody awful flu that then spread to the rest of the household, leaving us all bed-ridden and cursing whatever gods happen to be in the general vacinity. I can only describe it as the worst flu I’ve ever had the misfortune of having! I gave it a couple of shots, but just sitting at a computer made me feel worse than I already was, so in the end I just had to leave it, delaying my planned reviews by quite a bit.  I’ve got half the Bioshock: Infinite review sitting there, waiting for some attention, though I honestly have to say that I’m struggling to find the words to do the game justice. Just everything I write doesn’t describe it adequetly, and that annoys me. To be more precise it annoys me when I’m just not bloody good enough. After that I’ve got the pretty cool S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 keyboard to review, and the official Bioshock Infinite guide.

So now that my health is slowly returning I hope to get to work on this stuff. Typing this all out has taken me a little while, but I’m feeling pretty good so fingers crossed.

Anyway, to get to the point, SORRY! I promise I’ll get everything done soon. And as always, thanks for keeping this dream alive!

Also, send Lemsips. And Benylin. Seriously, I’ve gone through the family’s supply. It’s possible I’ve actually overdosed on the stuff. It would explain quite a bit.

    • It’d be a boring world if everyone agreed with me, and hearing others views is one of the reasons I love doing this.

      Thanks very much for the kind words 🙂

  1. Glad you’re feeling better! A similar flu hit my household about a month ago, so I completely understand what you’re going through. It freakin’ SUCKED.

    • I had played through Infinite (and loved it) and had a chunk of the review written out when the flu hit! Bloody annoying timing lol

      At the moment there’s about 4,000 words of my Bioshock review typed out. A huge amount of those are useless and will be getting burned in a qaurentined area later on. I’m honestly struggling with this one. I can’t get my thoughts together, possibly because I’m happily drugged up on anti-biotics, but more likely because it’s a tricky game to write about.

      • Ive enjoyed the game, admittedly i haven’t finished it yet, Defiance landed on my door mat and ive been glued to that since! Id be no good reviewing this game its very rare i buy into the story line of a game, they say they wanted to tackle race issues with the game but other than deciding if you should throw a rock at a black couple and seeing some black people that are portrayed as servants i really don’t see how its trying to tackle anything. I think its always going to be inherently hard to tackle such things with a video game.

      • Ah, Defiance. I was really interested in that, but the publishers don’t seem to be playing ball when it comes to review copies. Even large sites haven’t managed to get through to them, it seems. Still, I might have enough cash to pick it up as it really does interest me. How have you been finding it?

        Yeah, it’s always tough to tackle such subjects in games, and in any other medium, to be fair. Infinite does it pretty well, though I never feel like it actually makes any significant point about the subjects it brings up. That’s both a good thing and a bad thing, really.
