A look back at 2014 Pt.1

We are finally in 2015 and this blog is still around….somewhat. I won’t promise anything but I do have some sort of schedule/plan in mind that will hopefully mean that this blog will be updated more frequently this year. I did start this blog mainly as a gaming blog and it will stay that way for the most part. Moving forward however, I might write about my other interests (Gunpla/music) as well.
