Most of my gaming life I've been a one game person.. One game at a time, I mean. And now in my late 30's I'm no different from early 20's.

If it's an engaging and submersive game, it can keep me going for years. Like Diablo II or Ultima Online. The times in between was filled with brief interludes (except for a 5 year black hole created by WoW) with short term but VERY enjoyable games like Dungeon...

At the rate I've been posting updates, I'll be lucky to average a post a month since I started this thing. Oh well, you can't rush greatness.

Which would hold true if my ramblings could be equated to greatness. Or even medicoreness. Is that even a word? You know the quality of your writing is poor when you make up words (and your last name is not Seuss).

Anyways...

For those of you with long memories, you may recall one of my early posts dealt with...

A Different Life

Posted 5th February 2013 at 11:45 PM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

Wow, I haven't been 'active' on TOG for a long, long time. I remember the days when gaming and being a very active member of the TOG community were very central to my out-of-work life. They were great times, spent with gaming friends that we enriching to be around. But, as with all things, change is inevitable.

Retro Console Collecting - Part X (The Holy Grail)

Posted 9th November 2012 at 06:19 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Oh dear. The cobwebs. The dust. I think I even saw a few cockroaches scurrying their way through here. And who left the back door unlocked? I think I saw a few squatters comment spammers camping out in here.

Well, we cleared all that riff-raff out. Time for a little spit & polish, a little elbow grease, (a lot of booze), and we're gonna make this place shine again.

(In other words, I am totally going to start making regular updates and articles again)
