Has it really been three years already?

Posted: May 14, 2015 by Kendricke in Uncategorized

It’s been a while since I brushed off the dust in here, I guess.  I’ve been working, of course.  Since my last post, I spent a couple of years at KIXEYE, then a year at Kabam.  I’m now in the process of lining up the next big thing.

In the meantime, I’m taking advantage of the time to catch up on my games backlog.  I’m watching shows I missed out on.  I’m learning coding (starting with Javascript, actually).  I’m also enjoying a second paternity leave with the newest addition to my family.

I used to spend a lot of time here talking about the games I played and my guild – particularly the challenges that guildmasters face on a daily basis.  Lately, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time playing Mechwarrior Online and even Megamek/MHQ.  I guess this makes sense considering how much Battletech got me into gaming to begin with.

I’ve also been playing in the betas for World of Warships and Heroes of the Storm (and yeah, both are very fun, but in completely different ways).  Other games on the list right now include Civilization V (I’ve played an embarassingly large amount of time in Civ), Mordheim, Darkest Dungeon, and several board games (Sentinels of the Multiverse and Munchkin rule our BBQs).

Right now, the goal is to get back into the habit of writing.  Subjects I feel like exploring will likely be more related to production of games, rather than playing games.  I can imagine a few folks have ideas about what they think it’s like on this end of the table and I’d love to correct most of the myths and misperceptions.
