Reality Check

Boo.

Boo.

Good news everyone, sort of… If you thought I didn’t post much now, just wait until August. Time for another Reality Check, this one though might have longer term effects on life in general… What I’m trying to say is, and badly, I’m going to be a Dad by the summer time!

It’s not immediately time to pack up all the games and consoles but preparations are being made to put a lot of stuff into the loft, and make room for new things, such as a cot, moses basket… and other foreign objects I’m learning all about (pram shopping is one hell of an experience, like buying a car, but more confusing).

Gaming won’t stop completely, but there’s a good chance the posts here on Reality Glitch might. I’m inspired by the amount of retro gaming Dads out there on twitter, proving that it is possible to continue your hobby whilst having kids, but at the moment I’m not wanting the distraction, I’m panicking enough as it is.

My Amiga 500 will be packed away neatly in its original box, the games stored in large plastic crates, the other games and consoles too. They might make an appearance again one day. I’ll still be tweeting away about random retro stuff, and re-tweeting all your awesome finds, pictures, reviews and collections as usual, so please follow me on twitter below.

Back in the loft with you old friend.

Thanks for reading, and donations of pipes, slippers and other Dad stuff welcome…

All the best

    Good luck with Dad-dom! I too shall be joining the Dad Club in a few weeks, which is certainly going to involve some changes in priorities, gaming-wise… But hopefully there will still be the time for the odd session, and perhaps a few posts here and there on A Most Agreeable Pastime!

    I remember an awesome series of posts by a blogger turned dad who started playing really old games like Pong and Pacman with his kid and then chronologically moved on to newer and newer games the older his kid got. The kid got to experience the history of video games. Maybe you could do that as soon as your kids is like 5 or 6. 🙂
