Documenting my mania

Looks like I haven't posted anything since late October, but I've been busy.   Unfortunately not with games, though I have played a few in the intervening time.    When last I wrote, I was attempting to focus on games one-at-a-time until I could conquer my backlog.   That was the stupidest plan ever and it did not last long.    I was knee deep into Neverwinter Nights 2, and it was the only game I was going to play.   Then I died over and over again and I gave up.    Now I'm playing six games simultaneously and life is going great!      This doesn't include the two dozen iPhone and iPad games I regularly rotate through either.    My thoughts follow....
 

Dragon Age:  Origins

I started this game again, despite having lost my save on two other occasions.       I started a dwarf commoner, and I've tackled the Circle of Magi so far.   Once I got past the fact that it isn't WoW, I'm doing quite well, and I don't die very often.    I even convinced Morrigan to make out with me!   
 

World of Warcraft:  Cataclysm

Yes, I'm playing this too.   Got my main to 85, finished all the new zones except Deepholm, and promptly took a break.    Sorry, but I'm not able to set aside 2-3 hours just to run a daily heroic.    I'll wait until most people are overgeared and try again.
 

Dragon Age 2

The sharpest of you have probably noticed that I'm playing both at the same time.   Congrats!    Please don't ask my why I'm doing this, because I cannot answer it truthfully.
 

Assassin's Creed 2

Runs like a charm on my laptop, and I'm finally in Venice.    I pre-ordered Brotherhood so I could be even more behind on my gaming when it comes out.
 

Left 4 Dead

Awesome game.   Bought it for $2.50 on a Steam sale.   Never touched it until last week.    Fantastic. 
 

LOTRO

This is my main MMO, and it's gotten even better after F2P.   I rolled a Warden, which is an absolute crap-ton of fun to play.   Building gambits reminds me of one of my favorite JRPGs, Xenogears.   And it's very low bandwidth, which means it will run tethered to my iPhone over 3G without issue.
 

Darksiders

Why did I buy this game and start playing it too?  Because I'm stupid, that's why, and for some reason I can't stick to only 5 games at a time.
