Renewed: A few more years of Creeping…

Shameless Self Promotion.

Shameless Self Promotion.

So what is up my friends, well wishers, bots and other readers?

The good news is I have renewed my hosting for another couple of years. With that being said I should probably kick myself in the arse to actually get some text put up here on my blog.

I’m paying for it so I might as well use it! I am not ad supported. I am not paid to blog. This is just my hobby. ¬†Everyone’s got to have one, and this one is mine. Well that and gaming.

Creeping started in 2008 as a way for me to test using blogging software. At the time I just posted a journal of my in game activities in World of Warcraft because WoW mixed the internet and games. At the time those were two of my favorite things.

A lot has changed for me since 2008. I have played several different games and MMO’s (as most gamers do). I’ve been to PAX East and PAX Prime. All the while I’ve been keeping tabs here of what games I’m playing and usually how bad a job I’m doing while playing it. Let me tell you, I’ve had some winning moments (and I mean that win in a sarcastic way). I stubbornly play on though and enjoy every moment of it.

Though my blog has been on hiatus, I still game regularly. It’s a family activity in my household. I still adhere to the motto of “the family that slays together, stays together.” Sometimes that’s easier than others, especially when time zones are taken into account. I still get the chance once in a while to play online with friends and family but now it’s a little trickier. Since I’m based out of Europe as opposed to the US, it’s a little harder for me to spend time with family and friends back in the States. That is once we’ve all decided on which game to play.

Good thing there’s chat and Facebook!

Now, back to the blogging bit. I do want to try to get myself into a blogging routine. Sometimes it’s easier than others to have something to talk about. Also when I’m under NDA for some things, I’m not going to talk about it here no matter how much I want to. Everyone’s just going to have to wait.

Other stuff though I can gab about for days, such as, Guild Wars 2, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Sacred 2 (old but still fun), Neocron (trying to come back from the ashes), some Fallen Earth stuff (if I’m really bored), etc. That and I’ve been debating getting another Minecraft server going, but THAT game is addictive for me. I will sit for hours saying “just one more block.” But that is the way of the 8 bit goodness that is Minecraft.

All in all here are some things I plan on doing with my blog as time passes:

  • Shameless promotion of The Repopulation. It still looks cool and I’m looking forward to seeing this one go live. I just missed the Kickstarter for this one, but I did pledge a little to help get the game off the ground, so I feel invested.
  • One Off Reviews: giving my two cents on some of the games I’m playing.¬†
  • Random Thoughts: random thoughts and ideas about what’s going on in the gaming genre, if I care enough to pay attention. This of course is pretty much what the bulk of my blog has been about.

No promises, but that’s the general idea.

Right now I’m not running around in any MMO’s. If I do start playing one again I’ll post the server name and my avatar so folks can try to catch me in game if they can. For the most part I’m still a rare spawn.

Until next time.
