Having Fun With Steam

I’ve gotten a few new games with Steam, 2 of which are really fun, Shovel Knight & Magicite. Shovel Knight is a very unique game that seems to use elements from all the classic Nintendo games. When you look in a chest, you look through it Link style, from Legend of Zelda, the map system is set up like Super Mario Bros 3. It’s got retro graphics and music, and it really gave me a feeling of nostalgia. I thoroughly enjoyed Shovel Knight, and I’m still playing through it. I haven’t gotten very far however, I’m not very good at those types of games, but I still like them. I didn’t have enough money to buy it when I got it, but luckily my brother got it for me. He loves it, and he has sent a copy to a few of his friends.

Magicite seems like it was inspired by Terraria. It’s got some things that are similar to it, however a lot of things are unique. I really like the crafting system, as it is easy to use and very quick. There’s no separate window with crafting things in it, you just do it all in your inventory. The game features what some gamers would call a “hardcore” system, where if you die, you permanently die. This reminds me of Delver, as when you die, you have to restart. Many other games include this feature, however. I really recommend this game, and Shovel Knight.

But I’m also sad because I had to pay full price for Magicite since the summer sale is over 😦

Just Another Day

Our days are organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?

 

Well, I don’t really have daily rituals, except usual things.

But, I guess going to dailypost.wordpress.com is my favorite daily ritual. I love going to the site and seeing what new prompts await me.

I admit, I don’t always use the daily post. But I really like seeing it. I like to see what the writers at Automattic come up with. And usually, whenever I don’t do the daily prompt, I just don’t like it, or don’t have any ideas for it. One example of this is from a few days ago. I was getting ready to post, but then I decided that I didn’t really like this post. And I also might forget. There was this really good post that I totally forgot to do.

Well, that’s my favorite daily ritual!

Going Obsolete

NOTE: This post was from jophnist.wordpress.com, although I am the owner of that blog. I just re-uploaded it here.

I don’t like much technology, as much of it seems to be unnecessary and made just so people could do less work. The only technology I would like would be an electric typewriter, or instead, a chromebook, which I’m using to write this post. I would also want something able to play real games that you have to download, and if a chromebook could do that, it would be the only thing I would use.

Anyways, the technology I would miss isn’t necessarily obsolete, just not being made as much as most things. I’m not sure if they are even being made, however you could buy them on ebay or something like that. I wish the electric typewriter were being mass-produced like newer technology, and readily available at a low price. I haven’t actually used one, but they sound so wonderful! Nothing to do but write, write, write! Nothing like Youtube or Minecraft to distract you, just you, the keyboard, and the paper. I would also purchase a record player possibly, and play relaxing jazz music. I really like jazz.

As stated before, the electric typewriter technically isn’t obsolete. However, if it were to go obsolete, I don’t know what I’d do. I get along fine without it, but just knowing that I would not be able to get one would just be sad. I would be upset, but I would know that it isn’t important. And then I would go on tons of website saying, “BUYING TYPEWRITERS NAME YOUR PRICE!!!”
