This week has been a challenge for me. I *really* want to be playing Fallen Earth, Champions, and the new EQ2 game update, but this thing with my arm continues to plague me. I logged in to Fallen Earth on launch day and lasted maybe 10 minutes before the ache became uncomfortable enough that it forced me to quit playing.
So still no MMOs for me (in theory I could play Champions with the gamepad but when I tried I kept ending up back on the keyboard typing, which sorta defeated the purpose of using the gamepad). But on the bright side, I’ve been playing my consoles. I set up an elaborate tower of pillows on the couch and rest my arm on it ‘just so’ and I can play without any pain. In light of this, I’m changing some of my near-future plans. Games I was planning on getting for the PC (Borderlands, possibly Dragon Age: Origins) I now think I’ll get on either the PS3 or XBox.
So this week I’ve been playing The Beatles: Rock Band and Need For Speed: Shift on the PS3, and I picked up Halo: ODST on the 360. TB:RB I can only do for a little while because the aforementioned tower of pillows doesn’t work too well with a plastic guitar. But the other two I can play as much as I like.
So I think I’m going to start doing more write-ups of single player games here, since I can’t say too much about MMOs if I’m not playing MMOs. Plus there’re a lot of single player games coming out that I want to play. In addition to the two I mentioned, there’s Demon’s Souls, Brutal Legend, Forza Motorsport 2, Modern Warfare 2, The Saboteur, and I’m betting I’m forgetting a couple. It’s going to be a good season of gaming coming up!
