Since the demo beta weekend for Diablo III is now over I’m back playing a favorite of mine Titan Quest. It’s basically just a diablo clone in the mouse-click movement style gameplay. But also your obvious RPG setup. I have an open server whenever I play so random nerds wander in and chat and play with me from time to time. It’s like having a gas station out in the desert that only a few rogue travelers show up to use every so often. An “old” game that is rad and consumes hours of my life.

I have been a COD: Black Ops fiend for awhile now. I’m bored of the game just from overplaying it, but I keep playing it because it’s such a cathartic time waster. I’ve had MW3 on my radar but just haven’t had the cash to get myself a copy. Luckily Steam has a free MW3 weekend. I preloaded it on Friday and was able to start playing that night. I totally dig the game. I love the maps, how there are actual sniper spots unlike COD: BO which can be completely pointless if you ever want to even attempt sniping. I’m only level 6 and can’t unlock the good stuff. But I was still able to get the winning kill shot for our TDM game. I definitely want to buy the game now.
Two friends are currently playing Portal 2 and I’ve been nostalgic for it the past few days. So I decided to take a picture of my kitchen’s own…GLad0s
Batman Arkham Asylum. I am on the 3rd tier/level of the Scarecrow boss “fight” (puzzle?) and as soon as it loaded and I realized what it was I said out loud “Can I just kick this guy’s ass already?” That pretty much sums up how I feel about these boss fights. I want to pull his stupid giant needle-hand out of the sky and grapple up to his face and just go ape on his psychotic ass. BUT NOoOOoO, I have to duck behind crates like a BAT WOULD DO, RIGHT? NO. BATS EAT FACES. Or fruit, it depends on the bat really.
I was a complete FPS virgin before Borderlands was gifted to me. But minutes after I connected to a public party’s server, I was hooked. Multi-player, the expansions, the zombies, the vehicles, the skill trees, and most of all, the GUNS! Just so many, hundreds of types and rare finds. I have a bank full completely of different alien weapons I found or was given. Rare and hard to find stuff that you can collect as you go? No wonder I love this game. Yeah, I got nerdy about it. I loved this game. And I loved finding all the weapons and exploring the expansions. I finished (no real finishing, but I was completely played out and done with all areas around level 50). A lot of lottttt of hours burned into this game. It broke me into FPS’ and allowed me to learn a love of sniper weapons. Now I’ve moved on to other FPS’ and I’m rocking my summer socks off with them. Thanks Borderlands, you’ll always be my first.
Recently I reviewed Borderlands on Steam. Here’s what I said and why I think YOU might like this game too!:
I played the crap out of this game & its expansions. Loved multi, multi MAKES this game. Played as the phasewalking lilith and by end game was so powerful (in phasewalk skill tree I was able to heal myself and hurt others via AOE) that I was nearly unstoppable. Definitely a fun FPS for a girl who hadn’t really PLAYED one before. It was what gave me my sniper chops to move on to other FPS games. Also, the Dr. Zed zombie area was my favorite. It reminded me of an episode of Scooby Doo (they even have Scooby vans around bridge area) with zombies and bats. In short, Loved It.
Borderlands (Game of the Year edition which has all the fun expansions) is currently priced at $29.99
Spiral Knights is my new favorite video game of the moment. It looks and plays much like Zelda. It’s very over the top cutesy with everything from cute fox “beasts” and jello jiggler cube “slimes.” There are lots of loot prizes and special Care Bear Carealot looking rainbow treasure rooms. Loot share in pubs is awesome because no matter who loots what, everyone gets one. As a world, everyone gets to contribute towards unlocking new areas and maps by dropping off gems into whichever box you want to unlock as a playable level. The populas is large and unlocks are speedy because of this fact. There is a vibrant economy as well and lots of new stuff to discover and craft as well as auction at your own set price. I just recommended this game on Steam. Here’s what I said and why I think YOU might like this game too!:
Additive hunt for sparkly gems with a Zelda like feel and absolutely adorable mobs. I want a lifesized plushie version of not just one character or add from this game, but the ENTIRE game. I would hug it and sleep with it and name it George. I love this game and want to have like, 10,000 of its babies. And I could too FOR FREE. Yeah, it’s free. Insane. Play it with me?
