Between Class Coffee Break (Entry #2)

Hello internet! Once again i find myself wrapped in a soft cushy layer of boredom whilst I wait for my equally boring History class to begin. So here I am to type up my second blog post in this bi-weekly series. I hope some of you are actually reading this. I'm really happy about the two (2) comments I got on my last entry but I think as time goes on I can move that number up. 
 
P.S. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
 
Anyway, in this last couple of days since I last wrote I have discovered the wonders of Civilization. I read that review on Civ V that Ryan wrote and it really intrigued me. I was always one of the people that was too scared to even try and learn a Civ game. After that review I went and watched the QuickLook and let me tell you, that was exactly what I needed. It was really weird but watching someone play the opening 45 minutes to a game of Civ showed me that it really wasn't that hard to get into. So I went out, picked up my copy, and I've put about 8 hours into the game in the past 2 days. Let me tell you, that is a lot more hours than I usually put into anything in that amount of time. It was one of those times where you think it hasen't been that long and it has to be about 11PM. It can't really be too much later. Then you glance at the clock and flip out because its 3:30 in the morning. It was a really weird feeling. Time just flew by. I kept telling myself that I had to get up in the morning and that I could just finish this last turn and I would need to shut the game down but something always held my attention. 
 
Also, do any of you ever get that feeling like you just don't want to do anything? Like whatever you think of to do you end up just being like "nahh.... don't feel like that." Or maybe something you thought of sounds appealing but as soon as you set in motion to begin doing whatever that thing was you decide that maybe you don't want to do that after all? I dunno, maybe I'm weird but I get that feeling sometimes. I had it the other day. But I ended up forcing myself to load up my game of Civ V because I wanted to at least finish that one match that I had started. I instantly was hooked again. Just running through turn after turn slowly advancing towards world domination. 
 
Anyway, thats about as much as I have to say on that topic. Now for the "What I'm Listening to Right Now" segment. I'm currently rocking some Nightwish actually. Any of you ever head of them? Pretty interesting stuff. Mix of metal and orchestral music which I really dig. Anyway check out their "The Poet and the Pendulum". Gives me goosebumps.
 
For my closing statement let me just say that getting System Shock 2 to run on a modern system is a bitch. I got my dad's old copy of the game from him and I have been tinkering with getting it to work. With all the Bioshock Infinite stuff going on it got me interested in SS2 and there's no time like the present to play that game for the first time. I hear I'm in for a treat. Anyway, stay classy GiantBomb.
