April

April saw me reach the ripe old age of 40. Man, where did the time go! I’ve lived in Tokyo for almost 15 years, the whole of my 30s. I am unmarried, childless, and live away from my home country in rented accommodation. Not what I expected when I was younger to be honest, but 90% of the time I’m happy with my choices and love the freedom I have. Big events and birthdays make me think a bit about the future though - health, whether to buy a place, whether I’ll continue to live here, retirement….but I should just push that out of my head and get back to gaming!

I got a deal with Humble Choice back in December and bought 12 months in one go, despite having only ever activated 2-3 months in the last 3 years. March was the perfect month for me to get the game – Control – a game I was very interested in, and the Xcom game which looked okay. Instead, I skipped and played through Control on Gamepass :)

There was a big discount on Desperados 3 at the end of March that I skipped thinking that it was a sign that the game would be in Humble Choice in April. It wasn’t and that low price was actually an error that was only available for a few hours. A bit annoying, but I managed to trade some old bundle keys for it.
I also picked up Scavengers. Initially a key drop on Twitch but soon after free to everyone on Steam. I’ve played a couple of hours. Not sure if I’ll keep it on my account, I haven’t made my mind up about it yet. I’ll probably get sick of it soon and remove it.

Happy 40th!
