Reminder: Assassin’s Creed: Unity out November 11th.

Got delayed a bit.

Not picking it up right away, though: the budget indicated that it was this or Dragon Age Inquisition, and DAI won the toss.  Mostly because that’s the one my wife plays, too.

Hey, the Walking Dead video game series is on ridiculous sale.

75% off.

Was it any good? – Keep in mind that I have a lot of games to chew through first, but putting down ten bucks or so now instead of thirty later for the game and DLC makes a certain amount of sense, IF the game is worth it.

…So. NOW what?

I need a new video game to tide me over until the next BioShock Infinite DLC.  Although I should reinstall Singularity (I was just far enough along with it to make retracing the whole thing daunting).

A very nice gesture from Raven Software.

I had mentioned that I was thinking of picking up Singularitytime-traveling 1950s Cold War shoot-em-up? Sounds neat-o – and the folks over at Raven Software sent over a copy.

Having it signed was the neat part; that’s both flattering and appreciated.  I’ll let folks know how it plays.

…This.

[UPDATE: Link fixed.]

Simply… this.  There are, in fact, ten amendments in the Bill of Rights, and they’re all in there for a reason. I despise gun-grabbers intensely; but neither am I particularly impressed by people who seem to labor under the mistaken belief that the First Amendment does not protect the Second as thoroughly as the Second Amendment protects the First.

And this isn’t the first time that this has happened, either.

…I got nothing, sorry.

Except the standard “Don’t ever f*cking trust a Commie,” of course. 

Sorry, but I actually found that copy of Kingdoms of Amalur that started gathering dust once Mass Effect 3 showed up and have been playing that instead of Skyrim*.  Well, at least until the DLC for the latter two start coming out.

Yeah, I know: very glamorous.

*Which I have finally started to pick clean.  Only took me, what? Five, six hundred hours?

Yeaah Dishonored is probably going to suck me in.

Dishonored.  Steampunk.  With rats added in.

“Revenge solves everything.”  Heh.  I’ve played a few tabletop RPG campaigns with that attitude.

Ah, First World Problems.

I’m at a bit of an impasse, here.  I have sucked out all the juices possible for Knights of the Old Republic and Knights of the Old Republic 2.  I’ve long since gotten everything that I was going to get out of Dragon Age 2; I’m now just waiting for the next DLC. Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition is months away.  Right now, I have two choices: try to get back into Assassin’s Creed 2, or else fire up Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  The problem with the former is that I probably really do need to pick up something like Xbox 360 Controller if I want to play the game; the problem with the latter is that I had it reserved for January or February, when the ME3 shakes would start really getting bad.

Anybody got an opinion? – You don’t have to have one, by the way.  As I said, this is a First World problem.  I should just be grateful that I have access to clean water, food, and clothing.

Ah, before anybody asks…

…yeah, I heard about that Tea Party Zombies game thing.  I got as far as looking at the zombies that you could fight, noted from the visuals/descriptions that the fine old tradition of game designers never having gotten laid in high school was apparently still in full force*, got tipped off that the gameplay sucked ass, and went to finish my Dragon Age 2 playthrough so that I can get started on the first Deus X.  Because, really, life is short.

(failed Will roll)

But the years are long.

*Which happens to most nerds, frankly.  It’s just that most of us get over it eventually.

So, anybody play The Witcher?

Did it suck? It seems to have gotten strong reactions, both pro and con.

Hey, I figure that Dragon Age 2 won’t last me until Mass Effect 3* comes out.

Lego Mass Effect toys?

LEGO MASS EFFECT TOYS.

[igor]THEY MUST BE MINE.[/igor]

No, these don’t exist.  But I would buy them, if they did.  AND I WOULD BUY THE LEGO MASS EFFECT VIDEO GAME, TOO.

You’d play this.

(Via Hot Air Headlines) At least, those of you who play video games would play this.

Don’t try to lie about it, either.

Moe Lane

PS: I’m pretty sure that it’s not real.  Which is a pity: I need a new waiting-for-Dragon Age 2 game, now that I’ve done my third run-through of KOTOR 2 and have decided that I have no interest in a Dark Side run.
