How can you tell I love you? You can tell because I spent the day at home working on GameSpite Quarterly 3 instead of going up to the office to play the copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii Nintendo dropped off a few days ago. But it does feel nice to have things getting back on track again: The text for the next issue is nearly complete, I’ll be mailing out all the books and other mailings I owe people in the next few days, and I’m pretty much caught up at work. I have interesting new duties at 1UP, a new podcast, and some other pending projects, too. Like the rad new blog we’re launching tomorrow. I almost feel pretty OK about life for the first time in ages. Almost! It looks like the race to get my life back on track before I have a meltdown is nearing the finish line, although I’m still not sure which way the outcome will go.
I sure do wish I liked real-time strategy games, because then I might be interested in games like StarCraft and Brütal Legend. Apparently they keep cramming some of the best stories in the industry into these games! I’m fairly certain they do it out of spite directed specifically at me. Needless to say, given the name of this website, I totally respect that.
