I never liked turn-based battle systems. Though I was an avid fan of Pokemon, I always thought the games would fare better if they were more action-oriented. At least Paper Mario had some platforming elements and allowed me to change the outcome of the attack. I like being involved with my strikes.

So, I guess I'm more tactics than strategy. Or an ignorant gamer. Either way, I'm a dumb but happy gamer. :D

Anyway, I'm REALLY getting into Tales of Vesperia, it really is a great RPG.

I was expecting half the stuff in Silent Hill 3 because I'd read a let's play of the game before playing it. Still gave me heart attacks. It didn't stop being scary until I had actually finished it.

And you seem to make this assumption about me a lot. :P

That's all too familiar of a scenario for me. That's why I'm partial to console gaming. If it says "Wii" or "Xbox 360" on the box, I know I can play it. Well, unless the box is purple. But that's fine because I don't want to play any of those games anyway.

I saw my old Spore box sitting around, and thought it would be fun to try again.

I started the game and polygons flew all over the place in a trippy display of confused geometry as my graphics card struggled and ultimately failed to keep up with three dimensions at once, leaving my screen an utter mess of angles and shapes, enveloping and masking the game itself behind a wall of eclectic colors.

Now I remember why I stopped playing.

I think there was a thread about the server somewhere. You could probably bring it back rather than making a new one.

I think my house is posted there.

I just realized Portal 2 will be released in North America on the very day of my birthday.
If that's not warrant enough for a first day buy, I don't know what is.

I think that would be a good idea. But I don't know how any other people play minecraft.

I have a kind of nice house.

Well, I'm about three levels away from the end of the black ops campaign and I have to say, I am EXTREMELY pleased with how science fictiony of a turn the game has taken. And the fact that you get to return to the world at war campaign and play as Resnov alongside Demitri (who you played as previously) was also VERY awesome (Yes there ARE world war 2 levels in black ops!)

So I was offline in the cafe at college and decided to play Portal...

"STEAM UPDATING" even though I was offline, and I had to use task manager because it wouldn't shut down, good job Steam! -_-

I've had so many problems with Steam and updating. Load about half way then crash, load 99% then freeze, tell me it's downloading an update then doesn't. It's lucky I have to use it to play some good games otherwise I would have given up on it a long time ago.

So yeah. I caved, and I'm going to start playing World of Warcraft now. My free-time, sleeping habits, wallet, hygiene, and social skills are less than pleased about this decision.

It's an awesome game. Just make sure to find the right balance between casual and hardcore play. Take your time and it's more fun.

If you wait a little bit, you can have your character be a worgen. I was excited about their introduction, but sadly I don't play anymore.
