In September I was playing one game. Borderlands. With a buddy.

Now I can’t keep up with all the games I bought over the months. Especially since my job is keeping me very busy, which is a good problem to have these days.

Here are the icons on my desktop:

  1. Borderlands – Fantastic, but the co-op requires some serious firewall configuration to work. Although, that’s because I have two of them and one of them is a Cisco ASA 5505, which is basically the equivalent of buying a missile silo to protect your front lawn. But I digress.
  2. Dragon Age: Origins – Second playthrough. Phenomenal game. I still need to finish the new DLC that was (FINALLY) released recently. My advice to you is do not kill Wynne. Recruit her. I made that mistake in my first playthough, but I went through many unnecessary health pots. Three words: AI peer pressure. And there’s an expansion pack coming out in March, which I have also purchased.
  3. Dead . . . “Holy Shit that Scared the Piss Out of Me” . . . Space – Bought this on sale for $10 on Steam. I don’t regret it. The only criticism I have is that there’s really only one reliable weapon. The first one you get. The rest of them are situational I suppose, but the Plasma Cutter, especially if you upgrade it, can be used for everything. The Contact Beam’s alternative fire is effective too (and downright awesome), but I’ve only needed it a handful of times. I just finished this one so I will move on to:
  4. Mass Effect 2 – Installed but haven’t started it. I’m a one-game-at-a-time kind of gamer. So now that I’ve finished Dead Space I’ll be able to comment on this one. Really loved ME1, so it shouldn’t disappoint.
  5. Bioshock 2, Special Edition – Haven’t even installed it yet. Once again, one at a time.
  6. Assassin’s Creed 2 – Pre-bought this one and it should be on it’s way soon.

As you can see, I am waaaay behind in my gaming. But hey, being too busy to play them is a good place to be with this unemployment rate, am I right?

And one more thing . . . I’m always looking out for a different MMO. And I mean an MMO that isn’t the same recycled copycat shit that keeps coming out of that genre. So if anyone has any ideas, let me know.
