Melancholy and Random Thoughts
I haven’t posted in ages because I’ve been in one of those periods where everything seems grey and not worth doing. Eventually you just need to kick yourself in the ass, pick yourself up by the scruff of your neck (or whatever cliché fits your fancy) and stop moaning about everything. So here I am.
Thanksgiving was a bit sad, as it always is when I’m not in the US – it’s just a normal work day here. It’s always been one of my favourite holidays since it’s one of the less commercial holidays. Thanksgiving is about family and huge meals and being thankful for all of the blessings in our life. And you know what? To be fair, each one of us is showered with blessings. Unless something of cataclysmic proportions has happened in your life, you probably have a home and family and friends who l0ve you, and that’s enough sometimes.
I’ve mainly been watching movies or reading at night, not much gaming to speak of. I’m a bit burned out in Warcraft right now, which may be partially to do with trying to level a paladin to 80. She’s mid-sixties now, and it’s just…sooooo…sloooow. Maybe it’s me, I’m probably totally playing her wrong, but god does she take a long time to kill something.
I’ve never been a big console gamer due to my motion sickness, and also a preference for MMOs. But I think what I want to do over the holidays is revisit some old games, and play some new ones:
1. Bioshock. This was a game that I was really, really excited about since the creative was so gorgeous. I watched several people play through a portion of it, but never delved in on my own. I was raiding pretty hardcore at the time, and so I just passed on it.
2. Dragon Age. During my recent meh phase, I haven’t played much. I want to finish this game.
3. Assassin’s Creed II – it’s on my Christmas list. :)
4. Batman: Arkham Asylum. We’ve got it for the PC, and I haven’t played it yet.
One last random bit of fluff – I just found a link for this trailer, and I am really looking forward to this making it to Europe. (Although every time I see the word “SyFy” I want to punch someone in the manbits.) Anyway, this has potential, and Tin Man was watchable if not wonderful.
