…Geez. Is Mass Effect: Andromeda going to be it, this year?

I can’t think of another videogame coming out that I really feel like playing.  That’s a little weird, actually. Usually there’s at least two or three.

…Yes, by all means: tell me why I’m wrong.

Hey, anybody out there play “Crusader Kings II?”

Somebody was raving online about Crusader Kings II, but forty bucks is a bit much to spend on a game that was made in 2012.  Anybody out there play it? Should I at least wait until it hits Steam Sale?

The ‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’ videogame trailer.

Am I gonna try to get back on this horse?

I just couldn’t get into Deus Ex: Human Evolution when it came out, and I’m not sure why. Could be that I just wasn’t thinking in terms of first-person shooters at the time.  Which would suggest that maybe Mankind Divided would be more rewarding.  Or maybe it won’t…

Gah. Skyrim’s Dawnguard is still not available for PC. ME3 DLC is… nobody knows.

I guess that I could try to do Deus Ex: Human Revolution again, although I never could get the flow of combat right on that one. Or maybe I could just start Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning from scratch, although obviously it didn’t hold my attention.  Or I could just play Spider Solitaire forever.

This is starting to get grim.

Mini-review of Kingdoms of Amalur.

…I don’t hate it, or anything.  It’s not bad.  Very EA, and visually it’s very pretty.  But I’m going to abruptly put it down next Tuesday just as soon as I get handed Mass Effect 3, and I don’t exactly know when I’m going to pick it up again.  I figure that Skyrim will have DLC by then.

But it’s not a bad game.  Just one with lousy timing.

“What game to buy on Steam?” quandary.

So I’m looking at my Steam account (moe.lane, by the way; I understand that people can friend each other on that service, or something) and I’m seeing that LA Noire is being offered at 75% off ($12.49) and Batman: Arkham City is being offered at 50% off ($24.99).  I can manage to swing one of these; anybody got an opinion?  I like the noir genre, and I play action games; I’ve also heard people rave on and on about both of these.  Feedback?  The sale ends at about noon January 2nd.
