To my fellow readers, I have some bad news to share. Last Monday, PC Games for Steam suddenly stopped working. The main URL directed to someone else’s blog and the site was no longer secure. It gave me quite a shock. 

I tested the links on my pages and the images couldn’t be viewed. It’s been frustrating trying to fix the database files.  Unfortunately, I lost two of my latest posts and was told by my host provider they won’t be able to recover them.

No I’m not dead, just taking a short break.

In case you’re wondering, no this blog isn’t shut down forever. Far from it, I’m going to share my opinion on Video Game Controls like I promised long ago…once I stop procrastinating and get back to work. Besides, I’m not giving up on blogging when I don’t even have my first review out yet.
