Anything Else?

Question From Twitter

@BobbyB_87 asks

“Do you guys get in gaming ruts? If so, what do you do to get out of them?”

John - For me it happens when I play one style of game for way too long. I need to Play a different style of game or totally step away from gaming for a few days.

Erik - This is an issue for me, and it happens about once a year,  between the new releases and the backlog. I just try to play something that is easy and fun

Erik is headed to PAX Prime 2014. Tweet at him if you want to meet up! I may be buying beer
