Recent Work: I Hate My Job
May 31, 2012 § Leave a comment
Yeah, it’s been another one of those months. Overtime, an angry boss, and a deadly amount of Wotsits have all featured; but I won’t bore you with the details. Suffice to say, I’m knackered. Thanks for asking.
I’ve been a bit slow on the writing front, mostly due to the above. But also partly due to a little mod called DayZ.
If you haven’t played this monster of a survival horror, go play. Yes, it requires the Combined Operations version of ArmA 2. And yes, if you don’t own this already it will set you back about £25. But DayZ is probably the greatest zombie survival game of all time, formed within ArmA 2‘s monstrously detailed, country-sized war-simulator. It’s hard, brutal, but one of those games that you will play for a long time.
Long story short, it’s worth 25 quid. Still don’t believe? Read my long-winded and stupidly over-dramatized (yet almost totally accurate) account of an evening spent with a few friends here.
This month, I also started writing bits and bobs for a lovely multi-format site called The Recticule. So far, my only contribution has been a small news piece on Diablo 3‘s hacking issues, but I’m neck-deep in a review of Warlock: Master of the Arcane, so look out for that. I may try and nudge a few more news things in too – if I can avoid ranting incoherently, of course.
So that’s that. Back to DayZ…
