Category for quick site updates

Sign of Life

It’s been months since the last update.  This is an accurate reflection of my current frame of mind with regards to the site.  I like to post when I get a solid itch to say something – and I haven’t been feeling anything lately.

This post is a blimp to let you know that I haven’t flat lined.  The site is still on my mind, I’m just struggling for a direction.

Im not fond of constant updates, this isn’t facebook.  I’d like everything posted to be meaningful and at least some way producted as a peice of work.   This takes a lot of time and I’m not going to invest into something unless I have a solid drive to see it all the way through.
It will come…eventually


Site Update – The Search for Ideas

I mentioned some time ago that I wanted to change the direction of theboilingpot; however, I have been struggling with the direction I want to take.  Initially I wanted to write about the relationship people have with computer games.

Many of the articles I wrote turned out to be wanky, to be frank, so I just didn’t publish them. Judgemental soap boxing that I would rather avoid.

So I went back to reviews.  As seen by the previous FFIV review.  I think I’m back to the drawing board with the site though.  I will write reviews when I feel the need, I still find it enjoyable.  But regards to what this site ‘turns into’.  I have no idea.

I might replace the site entirely, but that will probably take a long time, and only after/if I’ve advanced into a different career. For now, theboilingpot continues as it started, playing and reviewing games and giving thoughts on gaming as a medium.


Upcoming article, Current games, and why we all need to calm down about Kojima

I’ve experienced a renewed sense of purpose since returning from a recent vacation and have decided to finally renovate my apartment ( I moved in 3 years ago).

This is a solo job that will take weeks, but I will be working on a new article between break periods.  It’s about how the Matrix is a true story, but in the shittiest sense possible.  Similar to how ‘The Revenant’ is based on the true story of when a guy shot a bear once.  Fantasy will always be more romantic than reality and the human race will be less disappointed in general once we all internalize that fact.

But I’ll not spend the ammo of that article here – that’s just a teaser until it is posted in a month or so.  In the meantime I wanted to quickly break down the games I’ve been playing:
