There's one or two games I want, but I don't think my laptop is even able to handle them so I don't think I'll be buying anything this time. I'll save my money for the Christmas sale.

Think I'll try and put this Counter Stike: GO weekend on Steam to use. I played CS:S a while back but I just got so badly owned in that it put me right off wanting to play it. I'm hoping that wont be the case with CS:GO but we'll see.

Suppose it gives me a chance to see what my internet connection is like for gaming. One thing I always noticed is that I can play on Xbox Live perfectly fine and suffer no lag, but on PC games I tend to lag from time to time. Even in servers that give me a ping of < 100. Maybe it wasn't lag and was just my PC desperately trying to run the game but I dunno. My MacBook should be more than capable of running CS:GO so we'll see.

Still like an hour and a half before I finish downloading CS:GO though.

I just realised that I've bought five games within the past two weeks and haven't played a single one.

What's wrong with me?

I hate to think how many retro games I bought over the summer that I never got around to playing. There was a lot. And by a lot, I mean A LOT. I just counted and there's about 60 of them. Fuck. Well, I did play most of them at least once but usually it was only for about 5 minutes to make sure I was sold a working copy.

It's a vicious cycle because now I can't play something all the way through without wanting to start playing something else. That means I either rush through the games or in some cases toss them to the side to play something else.

Yeah, exactly. I haven't even done that. I literally bought the games, took the stickers off of the cart or case, and then through them on the shelf.

Despite how uncommon it seems to be for a cart not to work, I still always check them. I don't think I've ever been sold something that doesn't work. Actually, I think my copy of Heavyweight Champ on Master System doesn't seem to work but I think it just needs cleaned. The only other bad experience I've had so far was a copy of the first Max Payne on PS2 that was scratched and stopped running about half way through the game. That was kind annoying.

What with work and what not, gaming's taken a backseat at the minute. Don't think I've booted up my console in over a week. However, I've got a load of unused holiday's at work I'm trying to use and so starting tomorrow I've got three whole days off for the first time in a long time. Que lots of TV, gaming and movies.

I was watching someone playing Deadly Premonition on YouTube last night and it made me want to start playing it again. I just don't have the time though :(

On the bright side only a few more weeks before the semester is over. Then I'll have a few weeks with not much to do. The perfect opportunity to play video games.

Well the bar for video game films isn't set that high so... :p

But yeah, I was already planning on checking it out when I first saw the trailer. I heard there weren't that many video game references in it though, but it's good nonetheless.

Not too late for a fellow game enthusiast joining the thread, is it? Granted, I haven't been able to play as many games as I would like to (YAY COLLEGE :P), but I still play a bit from time to time.

Oh, and I too wish to watch Wreck-It Ralph, although I doubt I can watch it until it comes out on DVD.

I seem to tell myself that I never have any time to play video games any more but it just struck me that I've been watching what is essentially a "Lets Play". I could be using this time to play game for myself. Well, in reality I should probably be doing work but spending this time pissing about on the internet is no less of a time waster than playing video games.

As for "lets play" videos, they're not something I used to enjoy watching. To me, it seemed silly to watch people play a game when I could be doing it myself. These days though, I actually quite like them depending on who's playing them. I've been enjoying some of the GameGrumps videos and more recently I've been watching Video Games Awesome because I like their set up and style of video. I'm actually watching their Deadly Premonition play through now. I guess in a way they're more interesting than playing the games myself (depending on who's playing) because they bring a level of comedy to it but then you're sacrificing the first hand experience and immersion of the game. I really want to keep watching this Deadly Premonition playthrough but it has now passed the point that I got to when I played it. If I continued watching I'd be less motivated to play through the rest of the game myself.

So I decided to set up the GameCube yesterday and start playing the Resident Evil remake. I've never made much progress with it in the past but I'm somehow doing better this time than I previously did. Ammo doesn't seem to be in such short supply and I have a small stockpile of herbs. It has become one of those games that really makes me want to know what the hell is going on. Still not too far into the game though. Been trying to open every door possible with the first key but I must be missing one because the key should disappear once I've opened all possible doors, right? I was waiting for that to happen before I blow the dog whistle and attempt to get the next key.

It was nice to play a video game again but I still can't see it becoming a regular thing. Still, less than a month before my exams are over and then I'll have three weeks to get through as many games as I can be bothered to play. I've got a big list of stuff I'd like to play which I already own. Too big a list to get through in a few weeks. Here's a few of the more interesting games that I'm wanting to play through:

Deadly Premonition
Dragon Quest VIII
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask
Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, XII
Resident Evil, RE4
Fallout: New Vegas
Star Ocean: Second Evolution, Till The End of Time, The Last Hope
Infinite Undiscovery
Popolocrois
Grandia II
Breath of Fire III
Metroid Prime
Chrono Trigger
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

So yea, there's probably enough games there to last me a couple years, never mind a couple weeks. You guys got any games sitting around that you've not had a chance to play yet? If not, any games out there that you're really wanting to play?

I got this from Nintendo's Virtual Console a short while ago and have put off playing it. It seems like a lot of fun, but it's so damn epic. It's hard to get lost. Curious to hear your thoughts on this when you finally start playing.

It's the DS version that I have so it's lower on my list of priorities because of that. I just don't enjoy handheld gaming as much. But yea, it's meant to be an amazing game so when I do start playing it, I'll go in with the assumption that it is overrated, just to cover myself in case I feel let down by it. I'm expecting it to be good, but just not "best game ever" good, which is what some people suggest.

I listed some other handheld games for the PSP that I'd love to get around to playing but again, they're lower down on my list of priorities too. I'm not sure why I don't enjoy handheld gaming as much. I think it's just the initial thought of having to use a tiny screen and I always find myself in weird positions if I'm playing for any great length of time because it's a bit of a pain in the ass to hold those things up for so long. Once I get into it though, I don't really notice. I played through Star Ocean: First Departure and Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core not too long back and got really into them, despite being on the PSP.

I like to watch them for games that I intend to play someday or for games that I've played myself. Although I'll only watch a few episodes at most. I just don't have time to sit through 50+ ten minutes long episodes.

Let's me just check my play list here...:

Morrowind (still need to finish)
Persona: Revelations (still need to finish)
Final Fantasy IV DS (still need to finish)
Metal Gear Solid
Persona 2
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon (still need to finish)
Ace Attorney Investigations - Miles Edgeworth
Secrets of Mana
Advance Wars Dual Strike (still need to finish, although I don't care about it much)
Tales of Phantasia
Dragon Quest X
Lunar Silver Star Story

I'm mostly playing Morrowind right now, which is going to take up so much time that my play list is just going to keep on growing for a while. And soon we'll have the holidays sale on Steam which I'm sure is going to add few more to the list.

Next to this I got a shitload of work to do for uni, even during the Christmas break. I feel like I won't get to playing that many of them until the Summer holidays...

Persona 4 Golden when it finally has a European release. I could probably just import it though. Not much else besides that. A lot of the AAA titles this year don't interest me in the slightest. I was really looking forward to Persona 4 Arena earlier this year, though I doubt I'll be seeing that until next year too.

It really sucks being on this continent sometimes.

Shit. I forgot to answer this. I've got GunStar Heroes, River City Ransom, Chrono Trigger, Harvest Moon, Castlevania III, and Super Metroid waiting to be played. It's amazing how pumped I'll be for these games when I buy them off of the Virtual Console, but how quickly I'll forget about them. :O
