Finished Arkham City. I recomend it highly. Right now I am playing...nothing at all. I don`t want to start something new since I will be getting Skyrim this week. Most likely I will be playing Skyrim religiously for several months.

No gaming for me for the last month or so. Too much going on. I plan to go back to my BG2 game at some point, but I wouldn't be surprised if I go for another month or so like this.

Working a lot. Still busy with my little guy (7 months), not to mention my two older boys, and the wife. Also have a pretty major home remodel that I'm planning, and since I've never done anything like this before, I'm really doing a lot of homework to get up to speed so that it all gets done right, and I don't get ripped off. Fun and frustrating at the same. Oh, and refinancing my home too, for good measure. It's a very good time to do so in the US, if you're fortunate enough not to be underwater.

Hopefully I'll be able to calm down a little later in the month and complete my BG2 runthrough. Even though it's not my usual style game, I'm pretty tempted to give Skyrim a go. Hoping I'll see Third Age Total War 3.0 out by Christmas. That's one Medieval 2 Total War conversion that is simply looking amazing.

Got access for Old Republic game testing and will download and install the client later today. It's a shame I'll have to work tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow. And Friday, too! Well, now, I am used to that, but the impatience!

Rocksteady has finally patched most of the DX11 issues in Batman: Arkham City so I can finally begin to play it. After a few hours I can only say that it is great. Basically it is like Batman: Arkham Asylum but on steroids. More about it later, now back to Arkham...

BG2 again. Trying the following 3 NPC mods. Nikita, Tashia and Kivan. Probably not wise to try out all three at once, as I'll probably miss out on some built-in dialogues they would have with the Bioware NPCs, but so far so good. All three have a lot of dialogue content with the protagonist, so right now I am having discussions about my backgorund with all 3 NPCs seperately. I particularly liked it when we approached the Ogre-Mage in the Umar Hills for the Mayor, asking about the attacks. Kivan has Ogre as his species enemy. I totally forgot and was not ready for his reaction. It's stuff like that that makes mods so wonderful.

Just finished Portal 2. What a fantastic game; better than the original. Really funny; and unlike the original, the puzzles didn't have really tight timing requirements.

Finished UnCharted 1 and Uncharted 2 over the holiday I took from work and school. I am planning to start God of War series next on the PS3. If I have time, I will play the Witcher when my TV is being used and I don't have any school work to complete, which is ususally not the case...

Playing Crysis. Runs fantastic on my new computer. Awesome graphics, and I'm loving the gameplay so far.

Skyrim baby! It is so nice to hang out in a world not of my own.

I also jump into Portal 2 once in a while. I could really use some portals in real life but I would prefer the two colored portals divided into two different devices and I would give the other device to a friend in a tropical country. That would work for me.

I'm enjoying a brand-new install of Baldurs Gate BWP.

Icewind Dale with the ever so cool NPC mod. Quite well done.

Daggerfall. Fired it up for fun and still playing.

Officially starting Skyrim, after letting it collect dust on my shelf for several weeks. My Third Age Total War run was excellent prior to this, and I'm sure I'll go back to it after the next patch.

But for now, it's time to go back to RPG land and see what a fighter-mage can accomplish in Skyrim!

Almost no time for gaming lately. That said, in light of Skyrim not sucking me in as I had hoped, I've switched gears and picked up the Rise of the Samurai campaign for Total War Shogun 2. I also picked up the over-the-top "blood pack" DLC for $1.49, so now battles look like old school Samurai movies with every character possessing around 10x more blood than your average mortal, and instead of veins they have hoses that ensure the spray will cover some good distance. Very therapeutic. Now, if only I had a little more free time on my hands.

Mass Effect 3. Very good game up untill the ending. The ending, miraculously enough, managed to destroy the entire series in 15 minutes.

In fairness, Rawgrim didn't tell us any details about the ending, except that he really didn't like it. I'm not sure that requires a spoiler.

I might play it and love the ending. I don't feel spoiled.

I'm playing Zen Pinball. The story isn't that great but the action is astounding. I wish I was playing Mass Effect 3 but its good that I'm not because I would get too hooked into it.

I'm 130 turns into my Rise of the Samurai as Kamakura Minamoto campaign and very much enjoying it. I've hit Realm Divide and now my only ally is my sister faction, Kiso Minamoto. It's us against the rest of Japan, and it's brilliant.

Kiso Minamoto has way more provinces than I do, several of which I need to win the game. Eventually I will come into conflict with them, and that's a scary thought, as their territories share numerous borders with my own, and it's going to be hard to defend everything I've got against such a massive, powerful faction.

For the moment though, we have plenty of enemies to keep us occupied, and the experience is truly worthy of the name Total War!

ION, I am downloading the brand new Fall of the Samurai campaign as I type and can't wait not only for it, but for the MANY, MANY, MANY improvements to the overall game engine and game play. It's a free patch that effects the Sengoku Jidai, Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai campaigns!

Fall of the Samurai jumps ahead 300 years from the original game's time frame to the Boshin war, pitting the forces of the Shogun against those loyal to the Emperor. This time we have lots of guns, cannons, Gatling guns and even iron clad war ships. Navies can bombard ports, and ports can even create large gun emplacements to protect themselves. And perhaps the coolest new feature is the addition of railways for the first time in a Total War game. I can't wait to transport my slow Gatling guns across the map in super fast trains!

It will be sad to see the Samurai fall... or maybe, I'll see if I can rewrite history and keep the Samurai legacy going.

Wesnoth again, with yet another user made campaign. I recommend it to turn-based strategy lovers — it has a KISS approach, but still enough depth to keep you going. Some of the fan made campaigns put the scripting engine to a real test, adding more rpg elements and complications.
And it's free.
