For the past year I have been logging all of my time spent playing games, this data is from October 1st 2017 up until September 30th 2018. I recorded the game I was playing as well as several other data points, and then used the Giantbomb API to pull in extra data about each game. I didn’t have a set goal for this project, it was more to satisfy my curiosity about how much time I actually spend playing games. Plus, I like graphs for reasons that I have
In this installment, I start out my career as a frigate commander and start to uncover some of the mysteries of the universe.
My adventure continues in a new solar system where I somehow become the captain of a freighter, and explore the most visually stunning planet I’ve come across so far.
In this installment I finally journey out beyond my starter solar system, it goes downhill pretty quickly from there.
A couple of weekends ago I competed in my first proper Taekwondo sparring match as part of the National/Oceania Championship. I walked away very happy with how I did (even managing to earn a gold medal for my efforts), there are things I’d like to improve on and keep in mind for next time.

Part 2 of this running series is here, where my attempt to start exploring the galaxy doesn’t go exactly as planned. I end up back where I started, but got to spend some relaxing time exploring a lovely beach planet.

The NEXT update launches today for No Man’s Sky, and while the shadow of the launch debacle still hangs over it’s head, the game seems to be getting closer to what I’d want out of it. The game went on sale as the update was rolled out, so I picked it up and decided to give it a go. Seems like the perfect game to sink some time into while I’m sick.
The Santiago Bernabéu was filled to the brim on July 7th 2009, just over 80,000 people came to the stadium to watch Cristiano Ronaldo pull on the white jersey of Real Madrid for the first time. Madrid had paid €94 million to bring him to the Spanish capital, and fans were doubting if he could live up to the expectations which come with being the most expensive player in history. He played what turned out to be his final game for Real Madrid on 26th May 2018, and there isn’t a football fan alive that doubts whether or not he was worth the money.
