Nearest game shop is about 600km (~370 miles) in some other direction, an internet connection that takes a significant amount of time to load a page like this. No Mass Effect 2 for me, which is probably a good thing.
I’ll spend some time playing whatever game doesn’t require an internet connection. Maybe I’ll immerse myself in the Caribbean playing Pirates or Port Royale 2.
I’m gonna try to get my gunners a high enough level in Navy Field to competently use my battleship. I’m also going to try to get close to wrapping up my Europa Universalis 3 game as Spain. Definitely going to work in some PS3 Demos (Bayonetta and maybe others). And hopefully an hour or so at least of Freedom Force.
Diving head first into console ports. Dead Space and Red Faction: Guerrilla are doing fine after some initial hiccups. The controls and interface in Dead Space are about as terrifying as the monsters, and I played a bit into RF: G before I understood I needed to use the abomination of GFWL to save my games, but I’m pressing onward!
ME2 here, yes sirree, once again betraying my shameless inability to play anything except the Newest Hotness. I’ll be flinging people madly about on Normal difficulty, reveling in my sheer overpoweredness, and sucking up those sweet, sweet conversations at maximum velocity. No one hits the X button faster than me while still reading every single possible conversation topic – subtitles FTW!
Same games as I’ve been playing over the past few weeks: Planescape: Torment (3rd time,) Puzzle Quest, Doom 2 and a few other games that I like to dabble with from time to time like Zero Gear, Dungeon Siege 2, Civ 4, and a few others.
I have cleared my schedule for some quality time with Commander Shepard, but I also expect some Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (DS) to sneak in, and I’ve been meaning to get back to Valkyria Chronicles for a while now, so that’s probably where I’ll go if I need a non-ME2 distraction for a bit.
