I FINALLY (!) beat Infamous 2 and Bastion! It seemed like I would never beat Bastion because every time I made significant progress an issue would come up and I would lose my save (playing on iPad). Probably mostly my fault, but still a pain. So I sat down and forced myself to finish this game. It was really good, but I kept hearing about a story twist, and I guess it just wasn't all that impactful to me.

I also was able to beat Infamous 2 this weekend as well. I played full evil so I got the evil ending. I youtubed the good ending, and it made me think I chose wisely. Funny how the evil ending is never canon. Anyway, I've never played a game where I wanted to be a supporting character because the main was so unbearably boring and weak. Nix and Quo had such better powers it's not even funny. I never felt powerful in that game at all for being able to harness lightning. The only two segments that made me feel powerful were fighting in the lightning storm where I could draw power right from the clouds and the final part with The Beast. Other than that, it felt like I had no powers.

With those two games in the books, I started The Walking Dead Ep 2 on the iPad and I went back to Lego Lord of the Rings on the PS3. I also put in some Demon's Souls time as well. Just a bit though.

Restarted a playthrough on Fallout 3 goty, played some MTG, and logged into Borderlands 2 just long enough to activate a shift key. When I can finally get around to getting the urge to play this game, I'm going to have myself a good little stockpile of those keys.

Dark Souls, Dark Souls, and more Dark Souls on PC.

I have an SL 62 Darkwraith that uses a +15 balder side sword and a parrying dagger. So much fun!

A tiny bit of Guild Wars 2 (Level 10 now), some Legend of Grimrock, and a ton of League of Legends.

Had my brother and his two girls up for the weekend. We are now on World 7 of NSMB Wii (our second play through). We also played a little Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros Brawl, and some old GameCube Mario Party 6.

After they left early Sunday, I was able to play a few hours of my current project, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. About 3/4 done. Not sure what to play next. I have such a huge backlog. I think I need to finish some games that I started a while back but left them unfinished. That includes Super Paper Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles, and the Emissary mission on Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Beat iNfamous Festival of Blood, if you are an Infamous fan i think its worth getting. Cant wait to start either Dishonored or Hitman this week, but cant make up my mind on which game to play first....

Played a ton of Borderlands 2 yesterday in between watching football with my buddy. I've also gotten lots of time in The Witcher 2 over the last few days as well. Great gaming this past weekend!

Going back to the beginning - started Assassin's Creed I

I'm getting back into gaming on a PC after a 15 year hiatus. Did use the family's Wii but not for serious stuff. Well, did try some, but couldn't just get the hang of certain games like Resident Evil 4. So stayed strictly with the family stuff - Mario Cart - Mario Party 8 and those types of games.

But in October finally bought a new state-of-the-art gaming rig that should handle anything. After I had Cyberpower do the custom build, I added a few things myself - extra fans to help cool the mobo and graphics card. And with all the sales on software starting with Thanksgiving week - and still going on, I've stocked up on 35 - 40 games to play. Let's just say it's going to be a long Winter....

Played my third run of FTL. Got pretty annoyed about the final boss area. Spent a long time getting there, then ended up losing, not because I let the big ship get to my base, but because I let him get about three planets away from my base. Yep, never even got to fight him. Wish I had known there was a particular range which he shouldn't get to. Just felt like an hour or two of gaming down the drain.

I also played through Wizorb. Really fun Breakout-clone. Highly recommend it if you like that genre.

Got a few hours of Borderlands 2 in with some friends, too.

Dark Souls, beat the gaping dragon and that butterfly dragon. I might finally have to go to blightown.

Tried making some progress in Sleeping Dogs, but unfortunately the wobbly camera seems to kick off motion sickness for me after about 30 minutes of play. Sucks because otherwise it's a great game. So instead I'm going to resume Mass Effect 3 after a six month hiatus.

Started Dishonored last night. Loving it thus far.

The only thing I played much of was Dance Central 3.

Oh, man. You reminded me of watching my mother-in-law trying to do gangnam style for Let's Dance 4. There are some things that you can't unsee.

You can take the back way if you chose the Master Key as your gift. That way you can avoid most of the town.

Ha! I think I know which part of the dance you are talking about too. :P

I didn't play much of anything, busy weekend. I snuck in a few hours of Darksiders II, but that's it. Starting to get kind of burned out on gaming lately too, which really sucks :/

I didn't game much either since I was busy with my applications. I did however get my games which I ordered during the past month so once I get free now, I am spoiled for choices.

One problem I am however facing right now is that I still haven't completed Crysis 2 and I haven't played it since 2 months. I don't want to move on to another game without finishing it but I don't feel the urge to pick up the controller to play Crysis 2 either which sucks because I think it's a great game. My enthusiasm has only been dampened because of this break.

I think before I head there I need to assess my weapons. I've been using the Drake Sword but I think I'm at the point where I can upgrade a weapon I already have and make it better than what I'm using. It has treated me well this far but no scaling = time to retire.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 24, 2012 7:47:54 AM PST
Drake was good for me on my first playthrough until I got to Sen's. Blighttown can go down pretty easy with that weapon. Farm some moss from the forest before you go, however, as that can really make your life so much easier.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 24, 2012 7:56:05 AM PST
I'm just in the mood to craft something awesome. I've used the Drake Sword for pretty much all of the game so far and want to mix it up.

Also curious about mixing it up with armor but my Elite Knight armor seems to be holding up and I do love me the Black Knight Shield as it just looks cool.
