Farewell 2012

Well it is 2013, and that means a whole new year of gaming is ahead of me. Started off this year playing a lot of Call of Duty Black Ops II. I am really digging the campaign so far. The changes they made to the story structure is a welcome relief and I look forward to playing that more. I picked up The Legend of Zelda for my 3ds, and I am almost finished it already. I may tackle the second quest as I hear that is where the true challenge is. Other then that I have been playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown off and on. I love personalizing my characters with the names of my friends. I know it is corny, but every time one of them dies I feel bad, and hover over the load game option probably longer then I should. I have Sleeping Dogs in the hopper ready to go after I complete the other two games, and I am picking away at Kid Icarus: Uprising. Demon's Souls is out on the PSN next week, and I think I may go back to it. I played the hell out of it when it first came out, but I do not believe I gave it its fair shake. Since Dark Souls, I have a greater appreciation for those types of games, and I want to give it another crack.

2012 has been an odd year for me. It marked a full year since my Mom passed, and I am struggling constantly with the idea that I am wasting my life. Mom died young, 58. I don't want that to be my fate, well, no one does, but you never know when your time is up. I finished my second degree this past year, and I am now a certified Teacher. I have not had one sub day yet, and that is hella discouraging. Because of this I picked up a job at Starbucks. I am digging it, but I am finding it hard to juggle work, and home life. I guess it means less time for video games, but that comes with territory.
