Lonely Vagrant vs The (Gaming) World

The First Blog...Ever.

 
Well, I feel...strange. I think this is the first time in a while that I actually tried to attempt something as crazy as write complete and utter nonsense as some kind of entertainment format. But I've been feeling a slight sense of mania lately. Mania about video games and how I feel it slightly slipping away from my life a little bit. I feel like I should be digging much deeper into my gaming and I feel like I have missed out on everything. I know, I'm only one person; I can't played everything in the world...but I would love to. I think my problem falls along the lines of I play a game and for some reason, I am unable to complete it. Life and all of its phenomenal cosmic powers seem to get in the way...even though I don't really have much of one. But that's another story for another day...maybe. I decided (and slightly regretting) to set up this blog as sort of a way to track and monitor the games I play. A gaming journal, if you will. I think it's more for my benefit but maybe someone will get a kick out of it. 
 

First Gaming Update.

 
Well, since this is my first update and I'm trying to work up a formula, I will just keep it pretty simple and say what has been on my mind as far as gaming is concern and what I am playing at the moment. And what has been on my mind has been Scott Pilgrim vs The World. I saw it twice and I completely enjoyed the hell out of that movie. I am not going to go crazy and claim it as the greatest movie of all times and existences...but I will say that if there was ever a movie that made me realize that my life hasn't been wasted...but still has some serious battles to fight, it was this one. I don't want to get too deep into it...but it was one of those movies that struck a very powerful chord with me. Forget all of the video game elements and how it blends that stuff flawlessly, though all of that was awesome, it just gave me the type of happy buzz that I have been desperate to find. So if you haven't seen it, check it out. It is a movie that should at least be seen, whether you hate it or not.
 

What I'm playing: Uncharted 2 (on Crushing) and working on Dragon Age: Origins.

 
Yeah, so I got back into Uncharted 2 again. I had beaten on Hard a long time ago and I couldn't figure out why I didn't play it on Crushing before. It's sort of sad that I didn't get into the multiplayer, but I don't have many people I know that have the game that I can play with. And I'm not much a Online Experience type of guy. Maybe one day...but meh. Still enjoy this game even after playing it a couple of times through. I just hope I can get through Crushing without my head exploding. Here's hoping. The next game Dragon Age: Origins...god, I don't know if I'll ever get through that game. It's not that it's hard...not yet, anyway. Maybe that's just me thinking that I'll be playing that game until the end of time. But I'm hopeful, if I can focus on playing through that and none of the other games on my ever increasing list of games, maybe I'll get halfway through. So those are the games I'll try and focus on. Also, as a bonus game, I played a little Torchlight. So far, I like it...I haven't got too deep into it but it does have the workings of a game that I can see myself sitting down for about an hour or two to play. That's about it. So I'm going to end it here. Not sure how to...but I figure a video game quote or something will suffice:
 

"My life is a chip in your pile. Ante Up!"
