The Professional Gamer - September 7, 2018

Hi everyone! I've had several busy weeks in a row. August 25 and 26 was Fort Collins Comic Con, August 31 through September 2 was Nan Desu Kan, and then I was at Yosemite National Park for work from September 4 through 6. So, I haven't really had time to write for several weeks. Let's catch up on what I've been up to.

In years past, Denver Comic Con has been horribly draining for me; taking a lot of energy and not giving a lot back. But this year was different. I spent most of the weekend helping Crystal at her table (table BB-8, just by chance). From behind the table, I was able to talk with a lot of attendees and see a lot of cool costumes. Still, I had a quick look through Chris's photos, and there were a whole lot of costumes that I missed. I took some photos too, if you are into that sort of thing.

After I posted my article last week, I spent the rest of the night playing Civilization V. I'm not sure why I had that sudden desire to play an older game. But, due to its turn based nature, it makes a good game to goof around on while you are talking with friends. I set my first game to medium difficulty and got creamed in the classical era. I started another game, and am now on my way to building a spaceship to leave this stupid rock. Maybe I'll finish that game up later today.

Last Sunday was Mother's Day, which meant I spent a good part of the weekend with my mom and my mother-in-law. After a push last week, I'm caught up on seasonal anime currently. Now I have to wait for new episodes to be released in order to have things to watch. On the other hand, after watching another critic talk about Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online I decided to give the show a chance. So, let's talk about some seasonal anime again.

The Professional Gamer - March 30, 2018

I may be getting older. Convention recovery has moved from a one day affair to an almost week long malaise. I'm finally getting back into the normal routine of life and work now. I'm going to do a write up on Colorado Anime Fest soon. Later, I'll start editing the podcasts in order to post them starting next week. For now, let's talk about what I've been doing in my recovery free time.
