Life is not a competition, it’s a game. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about all the fun we can have before it ends.
Whether it is the fights we are having in politics or about getting yourself out of bed every morning to go to work or school or trying to keep yourself save health-wise. Everything at times can feel like a fight. So it is good to – at times – take a step back and remember that enjoying life is just as important.
#BlackLivesMatter! It is a hashtag, it is the text on a protest sign and a chant being screamed out at the top of people’s lungs in the various demonstrations and marches around the world. So what better time to watch the documentary 13TH on Netflix.Continue reading
At times it feels like the end of the world with COVID-19 and its economic consequences, #BlackLivesMatter, police brutality and (systemic) racism within our society.

Divinity: Original Sin (or D:OS for short) was one of those RPGs that got praises everywhere. It had a very successful Kickstarter campaign and according to many it over delivered. Back in those days I was busy with other games, but I did scoop it up when it was on a Steam Summer Sale (remember those?).
A few years ago I had some space between games and gave D:OS a try, but it somehow never clicked.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been a big fan of part 1 and all the mods that were released and even though I have bought the games ages ago, I have never played them. That was until Half-Life Alyx got announced.Continue reading
