So, I was having a rather terrible day at work yesterday. And whilst being bored and working, and feeling rather depressed, found myself randomly thinking about random laps and of a few race circuits (Spa-Francochamps, Hockenheim, Albert Park). And i found myself thinking not only about the break points and shifts, but also I need to load up a racing sim again.
My excitement for the upcoming (hopefully soon) release of rFactor 2. So on my walk home i was think, "Imagine wearing a helmet in while playing a game, fucking pointless but fun idea". and now I have returned home with a $99 helmet, and have already pulled apart a old pair of Zalman headphones. and now working out how to mount them into the helmet.
So now to spend the next 5 days playing some GTR2 and F1 2011
According to my brother i have recently come out of the closet, only due to the fact i recently received as a way early birthday/christ-manukah present. My pc/gaming rig was upgraded during the BF3 beta (running xp till then) and have always believed in tech pluralism (only recently giving up on running a red hat machine). So now my current thinking is should I put steam onto my iMac (27"), or keep it as a pure production machine?
I also got recently Kid Icarus Uprising, which has been an absolute surprise. would have picked this up with or without Brad's quick look. And gives me a good reason to pull out the Nintendo Eye-Fuck-O-Vision 3000. Marion 3DS land didn't grab me as well as it should have, but oh well ill prob pick that up in the near future again.
Also had the pleasure of enjoying the Zerg Rush at Dick Smiths game clearance (yep, Ausfalian Strong), where i was able to pick up LA Noire complete for 10 and 2 copies of Space Marine for 15 each (but no serials with them so cash back) and on the same day i picked up the N7 edition of ME3 for PC. deciding wether or not to get it on 360 and finish it on there or to port over me ME2 save to pc. and also going to wait till the first round of DLC is out.
But to my shock horror over the Easter Long Weekend i was able to get my brother to play some Dungeon Defenders on PC with me (HDMI to my tv) and played a good 14 hours of co-op. which is turning out to be a good thing. once my best mate is back in country going to try and set up and buy a couple copies and play through it with him, his better half, my brother and myself. After 1 too many online games where the squeaking of a 12 year old with a microphone has killed random match making for me.
And now for the random purchases on Steam as always appear. Going to play some Grimrock once i finish this round of Dungeon Defenders.
