This is the first week of these posts! I am doing a 2022 challenge of reading one book a week.
Vicious is a very interesting take on the superhero genre. I am normally not a fan of superhero fiction and I was initially not particularly into the premise of the book but as the story developed I became increasingly intrigued and I couldn’t put it down.
The feud between the protagonist and the antagonist builds up throughout the novel in an organic way and by the time the book ends, the final “showdown” felt like a true epic superhero battle.
A fantastic start to my year of reading!

After many years of using asininetech.com as my primary blogging presence on the internet I have decided to change domains to a new one that I think represents me more nowadays.
After months of choice paralysis on what domain should be the new one, I settled on nullrouted.space as the one I wanted to use. I would also like to thank the fediverse for their assistance with my choice!
A new year is almost upon us which to me is a perfect time to make a change like this one.
So without further ado, presenting Nullrouted Space!
For those of y’all who have this site in your feed reader (thank you!), please update your feed reader with the new domain. I have added a all-encompassing redirect from asininetech.com to nullrouted.space so things should work even if you don’t but I recommend updating. The redirect is mostly for things like search URLs and links elsewhere that have the old domain in them.
This is also the first part of the transition to this new domain. The second stage of this will involve a redesign of this site with a fresh new look. That however will take some more time to get going so for now I wanted to get the first stage of the domain name change done.
It is Christmas as I write this post and this year in games feels like a total blur. While making this list I had to think long and hard to make sure there wasn’t anything that was really good but I had forgotten about in the haze of seasonal depression.
But as it turns out no, I played a bunch of games this year but only two really stand out as games I think are worthy of being called my Games of the Year.Continue reading “2021 Games of the Year”
