Well to be fair, for me it's only 35 minutes door-to-door because I take the highway.

Back to the topic at hand: Brian got me the Quest for Glory collection from GOG so I could relive my childhood, and I started off with my magic user and talked to a bunch of townsfolk and then went out and did some shiitake, then ran into a Brigand and died and then realized that I hadn't saved my game at all, because modern times has me so used to autosave.

Oh yeah. I think I remember that too... There's a patch you have to download and apply totally separately, I think, or that might have been Bioshock 2... I play the damn things anyway, but I'm at the point where if I game needs GFWL and I don't REALLY REALLY REALLY want to play it, I won't bother. This includes random Steam deals. 3 bucks is too much for a game that's so annoying to set up I never get to actually play it.

I also have bought neither Crysis 2 nor Mass Effect 3, both of which I was looking forward to, just because I don't want to install yet another game downloading interface.

Ugh, for reals. I had sworn off GFWL long ago, and then I got so excited that Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet was coming to PC that I bought it blindly, without realizing it had GFWL. I've played it maybe twice.

And I'm in the same boat for Crysis 2 and Mass Effect 3. I forking loved Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Mass Effect, and Mass Effect 2. I was so disappointed that Crysis 2 and Mass Effect 3 are inseparable from Origin. I won't deny that the DLC situation with EA games on Steam is a mess, but DLC (typically) sucks and I truly do not need another game download service on less than completely rock solid footing.

Being at work all day knowing that fancy new computer was sitting all alone. My games didn't finish downloading yesterday and I haven't had a chance to even try it out yet.
I'm kind of neutral on GFWL. I had some problems with Bioshock 2, but only when the game required updates. I could see how it would suck for multiplayer, which is why I really really hope Dark Souls for PC goes with Steam instead.

Yes.

I just finishing undoing (AT HOME) the thing I stayed at work late to help finish. That means that not only did I just work from home for almost two hours in the evening, but I was at work late doing something that in the end was pretty much pointless.

I would rather have had some crappy tank games, thanks. :P

I bought that a little while back, another group of developers actually remade QFG2 into Super VGA (oh yeah!) and it's available for free online. http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/qfg2/

Sierra was the provider of a bulk of the entertainment in my youth, Jones in the Fast Lane (also available as freeware these days) police quest, quest for glory, kings quest, and when we could sneak it by the parents...leisure suit larry. Good times.

Tonight I finished Alan Wake's American Nightmare. I beat the hell out of it. Nightmare difficulty, all the manuscript pages, all of the videos and radio shows. It was fantastic.

Now I'm in video game limbo. I've been lazily playing Bulletstorm for the second time, and I'm still wrapping up my second playthrough of Alan Wake (currently on The Writer), but I could really use something new and exciting.

I don't know who I'm kidding; I can't finish Halo: Anniversary on Heroic. I can do it in ODST and Reach, but anything beyond normal destroys me in any other Halo. I can't even get out of the first fight in Halo 1 on Legendary. I'm tired of beating my head against "Assault on the Control Room", I just want to have fun playing Halo again.

I'm so surprised no one talks about WoW in this thread. Does no one play that anymore? I used to play ages ago, and feel like am constantly surprised by how many people aren't talking about it.

How difficult Zelda: Skyward sword is on hero mode. I guess it's not all bad though. I run out of potions, get to a boss, and then I ragequit so I don't end up playing for hours on end and actually get some other things done.

One of my friends will not be completing Skyward Sword because of how difficult the final boss is. I presume he's playing on normal difficulty, so if hero is higher than that, good luck to you!

I played The Library. I don't think I need to say more. Is there any redeeming quality to that level? It's easily the worst I can think of, at least in the Halo series.

I think WOW's time has passed. I know their subscriber numbers are falling. Those will level out or go back up for Mists of Pandaria, but it will be just long enough for existing and returning players to check out the new content. SWTOR has seen falling subscriber numbers since release. MMOs that aren't free to play are having a hard time competing against those that are, I guess.

Ryan bought Raccoon City on the advice of a "friend". He returned it the next day and vows to never buy a Resident Evil video game ever again.

I'm still burned up about it 3 weeks later. He bought it on Friday for full price, returned it Saturday morning & got less than half of that as a trade in credit.

The Resident Evil franchise has done plenty to deserve such condemnation. But they also gave us Resident Evil 4.

Now that I have an excess of time when the baby is asleep in my lap and I've finished some work I noticed my bloodthirsty PVP server in an MMO is...peaceful. :(

I can still burn things in Team Fortress 2 though :)

(hey, I'm peaceful enough in real life, no reason to be in games)

Playing SWTOR and since the server transfers the lag has been terrible! I had to jump ship to a less populated server.

I'm trying to decide on a Steam game. I have a Windows laptop from school for the summer. I'm ok with ignoring the "don't install anything" edict.

I'm tempted by Civ, Tropico 3 or 4. I probably need something a lot cheaper though.

The summer sale is coming soon. Very soon. Some say before the end of the week. Games like Civ are certain to be heavily discounted. I will make a big deal out of this, like I always do.

Yep! Steam Sale should be soooooon! And during their big crazy sales, stuff is often discounted to, like, $1.99 for a high-end game (especially big games from a couple of years ago).

I will also be loading up on games I may never get around to actually playing, I'm sure.

So, reading this impelled me to go peek at the WoW website, which I haven't played in a zillion million years because I can't afford it. And that meant that I found out that now you can play up to level 20 for free.

I should not create an account. This is a very very very terrible idea.

VERY VERY TERRIBLE IDEA.

Yeah, don't do it. Play some World of Tanks instead. You can do everything for free!

I'm late to the WoW party, I guess. I did the free trial thing and I think I'm on level 5 right now and do not understand the appeal. It's just been "Kill a _____ and bring me it's _____".

The worst video game thing about my day is GTA III on my phone keeps crashing when I try to leave Staunton Island. Why!?!

Also, I could be crazy but I don't think Skyward Sword has difficulty settings. Or any of the Zelda games.
