TGIT Gaming Wrap-up for 4/5/2012

Thursday is my Friday this week, as we’re off to PAX tomorrow morning.

It’s been a pretty tough week and very very little down time for gaming. In fact I’m heavily demotivated and I’m not even really looking forward to the convention. I’d kind of rather sit around the house playing games. I’m sure I’ll perk up once I start breathing the magic PAX Air, though!

Purchases This Week
I picked up Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magic Obscura from last weekend. It was..sheesh, under $5 I think.
I also bought I Am Alive on PSN for $15-ish. Dunno when I’ll play it seriously but I wanted to send a message to the developer that PSN users want to buy their games. Sick of stuff hitting the Xbox weeks before PSN.

I also downloaded NFS: Shift 2 and Shank 2 on the PS3. Both were freebies for Playstation Plus members.

Played This Week
Raptr says I spent about 45 minutes playing SW:TOR and 15 playing (testing, really) Arcanum.
I spent a few hours on The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky early in the week, but otherwise I just fired up a few demos here and there. Wings of Steel grabbed my attention. Blades of Time did not. There were a few others that I barely looked at before deleting. Asura’s Wrath was one…I can’t even remember the others.

I played up to the title screen of I Am Alive just to see what gameplay was like, and ran 1 race in NFS:Shift 2

Plans For the Week to Come

PAX! Being away for the weekend will probably put me so far behind that I won’t get any gaming in next week, but if I do it’ll probably continue to be The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.

I’m really looking forward to things getting back to normal next weekend!
