Greetings. Once upon a time, in our wee youth, Paul and I would spend many an hour passing the NES controller back and forth alternating lives or levels, or rolling with laughter in his room with a group of friends playing a tabletop RPG, or driving to a hobby shop for some Magic: The Gathering trading and gaming. As time has gone by the amount of spare time I can devote to gaming has decreased, but it’s still something I greatly enjoy. At some point I had to come to the realization that a) I was not a hardcore gamer b) I will likely never put in the time to be that great at any particular game and c) that’s OK.
Hence, the Occasional Gamer. Probably not limited to just games, as I have a weakness for all things geekery-related (and Mac related, as the name would indicate). So from time to time, as the urge strikes, I’ll offer up my thoughts on what has managed to grab my limited attention.
