March and Madness
Heading into the second week of March. My life is in a totally different place than it was last month. Our household is smaller, as we had some roommates move out. We are now working on some remodeling and moving rooms around. Our kids are helping pick out decor and styles for their rooms. My wife and I are getting pieces for our bedroom: an armoire, new bed frame, smaller pieces of furniture.
I haven’t gone this long without playing an Xbox since, well, before I had an Xbox. I’m hoping to get one with tax return, but we are focusing on paying bills and paying for the upgrades on the house. Hoping very much we have enough left over for me to get an Xbox One X. I’m getting antsy.
Every couple of days, I try to go over what I did last in Assassin Creed: Origins. I don’t want to forget and not have any idea where I’m at on the story whenever I get back to playing. That happened with The Witcher 3. I even deleted my old save so I could immerse myself in the story anew. I do NOT want to do that with AC:O.
I have seen some positives in not having video games. I can’t honestly say that the negatives outweigh the positives either. But I do know I need some type of creative release. I’m reading more, but there’re no choices there. In a book, I go where the author tells me. In the right game, I use the choices the author gives. It’s enough of a difference to satiate me.
