Depressing...

Man, I'm in my mid-thirties and depressed that a video game site is changing corporate ownership.

I'm thrilled for the crew, because they seem happy and they deserve success. I just don't see a future in this world where GiantBomb as I enjoyed it continues to exist.

Skyrim!

Switched from Xbox to PC w/ controller for Skyrim. It was a bit of a gamble because my PC is an old M11X alienware laptop without much horsepower. Thankfully it works fine -- looks way better than Xbox (though frame rate is worse) and will let me play another 100 hours or so without occupying the television through January...

Insanity

Inspired by all the GOTY coverage, am giving Mass Effect 2 a shot on Insanity...
 
Edit: as it turns out, I was actually playing Hardcore. No wonder it seemed easy.

Whee!

Beat Braid tonight. What a gem. It reminds me of why I keep up with gaming on sites like Giantbomb, so I don't miss things like this.

Civ Revolutions arrived in the mail too. I imagine that will consume a huge chunk of my time in the near future, if my history with civ is repeated.

Braid

Started playing Braid this weekend. Got distracted by Olympics, but I can safely say it rocks and is worth the $15.

Old times, good times

Started replaying Zork. Haven't played it in 24 years, forgotten a good chunk of the puzzles. Still engaging. Takes a little effort to get going but once in the world hard to leave.
