As you will have noticed I decided to restart my blog again. I was getting so far behind with my comic book reviews that it seemed like a better idea to give my blog another makeover. It looks pretty much the same as before, but I want to return to posting daily updates and the like (sort of like what I did back during my blog’s most popular days). I hope this will entertain my readers at least as much as my reviews did, but we will just have to wait and see.
This first post serves both as a blog announcement and a tryout for the new format, so I should probably try to fill it with a bit of content. And that is not easy, as I have been spending a lot of time playing games on my new iPad. I got the gadget as part of my new phone deal and I am finding it hard to put down in favour of anything else. Thank the gods that I can use Twitter and such on it or I would be completely cut off from the world.
The game that is entertaining me the most by far has to be The Simpsons: Tapped Out, which allows you to build and maintain your very own version of Springfield in a game that resembles browser games like Farmville and such. I am about two thirds of the way in, but they keep releasing new content and so there is still plenty left for me to explore. Not to mention that I like redesigning my town every few days to accommodate new buildings.
Then there is Jurassic Park Builder, which I am told is a loose remake of an old handheld Jurassic Park game (but made to work like those Farmville type games). It looks great and is quite fun to play, but once you start getting to the later part of the game it gets really slow to play (dinosaurs take 24+ hours to hatch and such) and that kind of sucks the fun out of it. But it is all about dinosaurs, so it is not like I am going to stop playing it any time soon.
I do actually still collect and read comic books, although most of the time I am spending on it these days goes to renaming and organizing my collection to make it uniform and easy to search through in ComicRack. The iPad is great for reading them though, so at least now I can lie back on the couch and read them instead of being forced to sit in front of my computer. That is a good thing, as I am way too cautious to actually read any of my real-life books.
As I have mentioned before, these new posts might become a daily thing although I am not entirely sure on that yet. A blog restart is always a bit touch-and-go for me, so I guess it mostly depends on if I have enough stuff to write about. That is why I want it to be more than just an online diary, with the odd opinion or encapsulated mini-review thrown in for variation. In any case, the comment option is enabled so feel free to tell me what you think.
