But that's how people are, people's desires, tastes, and interests change all the time. And what I find compelling right now may not interest me in the slightest tomorrow.
However though, for the last six months I have still been really active in sharing my gaming activity - I just to it largely through social media now, rather than formal written blogs. So Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have become my vehicles of choice. Not Google Plus - that platform I think is not long for this world, and I have certainly left it behind.
But I am still sharing, mostly on twitter, and somewhat on Facebook. But there have been a few recent changes in the industry of late that have sort of sparked my interest in using Facebook as a social gaming platform. So to that effect, I've created a new Facebook Gaming Page. It's called, imaginatively enough - Gaming with Dusty. And I am going to experiment with using that as sort of my central repository for sharing al things gaming and game development. And maybe even speculative fiction as well.
So if you're search has landed you here, and you're thinking "Well crap.. another dead blog.." well you're right. But if you still want to engage, please follow me over to FB and/or twitter, and engage away! I look forward to seeing you!
Here are the deets.
The FB page can be found here:
And of course, you can always find me on twitter.
Cheers, and see you soon!

Haven't blogged in awhile, but if you follow me on Twitter, then you know I've been pretty much playing Tom Clancy's The Division since it launched. I've finished the main story, reached the max level, and only have a single zone of collectibles left to gather. Now that I'm just sort of doing the daily gear progression thing, I wanted to take a bit and talk about the story of The Division - what I think worked, and what could have been better. I haven't seen a whole lot of commentary on The Division's story, but what I have seen has been mostly negative. And I wanted to talk about that, because I'm not entirely sure the game is getting credit where credit may be due.
Let's get this out of the way right up front - I'm assuming that if you're reading this, you've finished the main story, and have completed all of the story missions. There will be spoilers for that content ahead, so if you're worried about reveals, please come back when you're at the end.

I've never been very good at spending my free time on more than one general activity at a time. Whether it be working on a game development project, playing my MMO de jour, or something that's caught my eye on the console, typically I tend to only focus on one thing, though I have been known to shift about pretty quickly. And if you follow me on twitter at all, you know that for me, for the last several weeks, that's been Blade and Soul. So what's keeping me in the game?

So I started the new year off saying I'd try to deliver more video content for Of Course I'll Play It, and here it is practically the end of January, and I haven't done a thing yet. Well part of the reason for that is I've been spending just about all of my free time playing Blade and Soul! I'm having a blast of a time in the game, and I've had more than a few people ask me what I thought and if I thought they'd like it. So in answering that question, as well as talking about Blade & Soul's sort of base mechanics, I thought I'd put together a general sort of beginner's guide. This will hopefully answer most of the questions I know I had when I first started the game, as well as help you decide if you think the game is something you would enjoy.
So check the video below, enjoy the guide, and please let me know in the comments if I should do more videos like this, or just stick to the written word and pretty pictures.

Hello and welcome to the first post of the new year! I thought I'd kick off this year in Blog Posts in classic style - with some new year's resolutions. Little known fact about me, I love new year's resolutions. I know, most people by now are pretty jaded and cynical when it comes to setting goals for the new year - but for me, it represents a chance to change, and a change to grow, and blah blah mostly I just like making them and seeing where I end up at the end of the year. So now, without further adieu, let's look at what we're going to try to get done in 2016 (oh man it sounds weird saying that!)
