Games For My Break

Re: Look What I Caught This Weekend!

My month or so of Day Notes comes to an end. I'm starting vacation really soon. Tonight, in theory, though some posts of mine will magically appear for a couple more days. Thanks, Ash and friends for writing back to me after each and every Day Note!

As I embark on my holiday vacation, I am preparing to spend time with friends and family, getting ready to go shopping for blinds, plus other stuff. But, lo, during this vacation, games will be played.


My 2009 backlog is kinda small: Dragon Age, Demon's Souls, Brutal Legend, Assassin's Creed Bloodlines, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Eufloria, Ben There Dan That (2009, right?), some Fallout DLC, the Spore expansion I was curious about... not much else. Wait! That's kind of a lot. That's spilling into 2010. Good thing Lost Planet 2 was delayed.

My 2008 backlog still lingers, though: Gotta finish World of Goo!

Oh, and call me crazy, but there are a couple of games I finished but want to go back to: Assassin's Creed II (to do all the side stuff except the feathers. The newest Ratchet & Clank (to play the real ending).

So that's what I'll be doing. I hope you'll be doing things that are useful to society as well. Enjoy the rest of 2009!

I continue looking at my ever growing pile of games with complete dismay.

I've got Spirit Tracks on the go, a re-run to lvl 100 with Terra and Cloud on Dissidia, Red Faction Guerilla's multiplayer beckons once more to me, as well as finishing the SP campaign, I want to go back to MW2 and finish the story on veteran, I need to polish off the end of Assassin's Creed II, Do the last level of LBP, and on top of that i've asked for L4D2 and Dragon Age for Christmas!

And then Bayonetta's out, followed by Mass Effect 2, followed by Star Trek Online, followed by Final Fantasy XIII...

And all the while over that Demon's Souls has trapped me in a love/hate relationship, the end of World 2-2 calling me like a siren's dirge, despite the fact I feel physically ill playing the game because I'm that nervous about dying and losing all my souls.

TOO MANY GAMES!!! *head explodes*
