|It's been a good run.|
First of all I do have a life outside of this blog and recently things have gotten to the point where I'm finding less time to post, nor am I finding it any more important than work or school. Second of all my interest in the hobby has waned greatly over the past few years. To be totally honest, the whole scene has gotten pretty dull lately and I haven't had the desire to even want to review the new things because frankly, they aren't very interesting. Last blaster I reviewed nearly two months ago: the Tri-Strike was abysmal, uninspired mess and virtually everything else has gone to the same formula of chucking in flywheels. Okay, one can argue there are some gems out there and I have experienced some of them first hand but all that stuff costs money and time, both of which I need for frankly more important things.
Blasters are expensive, I'm sure you guys know this. Especially the ones that I consider worth posting about more. I've found myself returning the things more and more often just because of how stale they've become. Trying to devote time to writing long reviews about each and every one of them has gotten so repetitive to the point that I have to mentally force myself to get the screwdriver now in order to open it up for internal shots. For instance, I got the Incisor recently and promised a review on Twitter a whole week ago but I already knew what to expect just by seeing that it takes four AA batteries and has two triggers. I got halfway through the review before I decided to put it on the back-burner.
I am genuinely burnt out with dart blasters and don't want to do much more with them at the moment. However I wouldn't have kept posting about them if you guys didn't keep coming back. Seeing that view counter grow just tells me to keep on going, and trust me, I love putting my opinions out and I love getting feedback from you guys but some things just get old. That was the whole reason I started diversifying the blog in the first place. In case you we're expecting some sort of sentimental goodbye from me, I hate to disappoint you. Alongside the tech content I will continue to post dart blaster reviews but in nowhere near the same volume as I did in the past. Blaster news and modding are pretty much done at this point. I know this will probably alienate a lot of you guys as this was very much a key part of the blog but I genuinely don't have the time for it anymore.
I'm going to be focusing most of my attention on new content for my YouTube channel since it's all I can fit into my schedule at the moment and I'll continue to be a complete jerk in text form on Twitter. I'm sorry things have gotten to this point but that's just life I suppose. Who knows though, I might be back in full if time(and cash) persists and the hobby gets a little more interesting than it currently is but don't keep your fingers crossed. Anyways thank you guys for all the support over the years and I'll continue moving forward. See you soon.
