On The Radar – PC Turn-Based RPG & Strategy Games Releasing On August 2022
“This is the end
This is the end”
– The Doors
The original title of this article was supposed to be “A “meh” month? No, a “meh” me” and it should have been a reflection about my progressive difficulty to get attached to new games, because of my mental laziness and my inability to learn and understand all the way new mechanics and new features.
But, then, something changed. What was just a far intention, has grown, becoming, first, a goodbye and, then, a real farewell.
Partly behind this decision, there is the fear of becoming repetitive, writing articles that haven’t anything really new to say, or, maybe, the simple necessity to look at new things.
For years I wrote the column “On The Radar” and “10 turns Interview” always trying to say something original and not specifically related to the world of videogames. The best part was the chance to meet and talk to so many devs, sharing their thoughts, hopes and ambitions. For this, I’ve to thank only one person: Marcello, who has my deep gratitude.
It’s never easy to say goodbye. Once someone said: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard” and this is true. After all, saying “hello” and “goodbye” looks quite similar, in both cases you don’t know what it’s waiting for you just up ahead, with the difference that a “farewell” always contains a loss.
For me, saying goodbye to Turn Based Lovers is a very hard and sad thing, but I think this is the right moment to turn the page.
I feel ready to try new adventures, perhaps writing for someone else or about something else. One thing is for sure: I can’t live without videogames and without people that, just like me, loves videogames, but, for now, I’ve done with Turn Based Lovers. Maybe, later on, I’ll come back (If Marcello still wants me) to write something foolish again, as usual, but not for now.
Perhaps, after years spent writing ABOUT videogames, this is the right time for me to write FOR a videogame. I’m pretty good at creating stories and, out there, there are so many good videogames without a good story, so who knows? If anyone is looking for a crazy writer, let’s just say that I’m here!
Anyone who knows me quite well, knows that I like quotes very much, so this is for everybody who had the patience to read everything I wrote. Thanks.
