It’s yah boi Scott, hail ya fae da West side, Scotland innit. Ayr young team ya feel me bruvs?
Okay… that’s enough of that god awful way of speaking, but regular introductions are just soooo boring
So I decided to update my bio now that I have been domesticated. As a lot of the travelling etc no longer applies.
I have now been stationary in a house with good internet for 1 year and my itchy feet have been pretty well grounded. I still like to go on the odd holiday, but I don’t reckon I will be moving home for a while and I have actually stuck to my prediction of spending at least 40 weeks of the year at home.
Whilst I have kept to my predication about being at home a lot of the year and having a more structured, domesticated life, I was utterly wrong on the having more time for stuff like gaming etc. Being settled in one place just meant I took on work that requires me to be in one location at my office and upped the time spent in the gym… So I don’t have all that much time to game. In fact… contrary to my expectation, I’d say I have less time now than when I was on the move
I still manage to squeeze the odd bit in here and there and some weekends I even manage to basically play all weekend when I get a weekend with no other commitments.
PC gaming has gotten a little more love now that I have easy access to it but PS4 is still where you are most likely to find me!
I have been 'playing' since I was 2 years old (pushing buttons randomly), though I didn't beat any games until I was almost 4, so I guess I really became a gamer at 4
Gaming has been a big part of my life ever since and is my primary hobby. I used to be fairly good too though time waits for no man . I now play mostly for fun and pretty casually, though I still like to play a wide variety of games, especially if there are any innovative ideas
I doubt I will ever stop gaming entirely and still expect to be gaming in retirement, hopefully still with my tight knit group of very close friends IRL who also love gaming
I game on all modern platforms and have all of my accounts linked on TGN, my platforms serve the purposes below;
PS4 = Primary console and gaming platform
PS3 & Vita = I still own these and keep them as I have quite a big digital libray on each and they aren’t worth much to sell/don’t take up much room. I barely ever play them. My Vita no longer holds a charge, so cannot be used as a handheld.
Nintendo Switch = So… I am not really big on Nintendo and think they have consistently made mind boggling decisions in gaming, but they do have their positives. With the Nintendo Switch, I really thought it could have a lot of potential, but ultimately it has been a major disappointment so far. I have considered getting rid of it, but there will be the odd game I want to play on it. Plus, it is my only handheld console so I should keep it for that alone, however, I do not play handheld anywhere near as much as I used to now that I am home most of the time.
Xbox 360 = I will be back for XBLA periodically, but mostly a retired console
PC = I play a fair bit on PC and my PC is capable of running any game out just now. Most games I play on PC are either because friends are playing on PC or the game is not available on consoles. I also play Microsoft games here through Play Anywhere
I used to have retro consoles and a game collection, though I am a minimalist with an almost all digital game collection and only own the platforms listed above (and mobile... yuck)
