2020 – Let the Games Begin

So far I’ve enjoyed 2020. Winter has been weird. A bit too warm. Not enough snow. But I have a nice hat. So thats nice.
Beat Borderlands 2, now on to Borderlands :The Pre-Sequel. And some Rocket League of course.

Been learning Blender. Its fun.

Summer gaming challenge

I’ve decided my backlog of games I own but never played is far too big. So this summer im going to try and get thru as many as I can. I’ve already found some surprises. What Remains of Edith Finch so far seems to be a very well done story driven game set in a beautiful world. I got Slime Rancher for free from the Epic Games biweekly free game giveaway. Didnt think much of it because it looked silly but meh, it was free. Finally fired it up and was pleasantly surprised at how fun it is.

Life Goes On is a fun Lemmings-esque I’ve taken quite the shine to lately. Check it out!

Headlander – A Double Fine game

I got this game gifted to me on Christmas from redditor voidcontrol from /r/randomactsofgaming

Its a fun game with unique gameplay… you’re a head. There are robots. You steal their bodies. I love the 70s style and design. Check it out!

Bike theft in Burlington

Bike theft in Burlington is a huge problem. Now that the college kids are back, itll probably get worse. There are ways to prevent it though. Dont leave your bike locked for long periods of time in a public space like this was. It’s locked to  the bike rack outside of 60 Lake Street, the building Skinny Pancake is in.  At home, lock your bike somewhere that isn’t visible from the street, like in the back yard. Even better if you can store it inside your house/apartment. If your building has a basement space for bikes, as one of mine did, still be careful. Bikes still get stolen from there.

People are jerks

I’ve had two bikes and just the tires stolen from me, like this poor bike. It sucks and ruins your day. If your bike does get stolen, report it to the police. Also tell all the bike shops in town like Ski Rack, North Star Sports, Old Spokes home and the like. Also post on Front Porch Forum and Facebook/Craigslist.  Put a piece of paper with your contact info on it rolled up in the seat tube pipe. And register your bike, or at least keep its serial number, make and model somewhere you can access it.

Be safe!
