    Haven't been gaming too much lately - just haven't had something really grab me.

    BUT, have started playing Assassin's Creed Revelations and its got me really hooked. So much to see and do, amazing graphics - love it.

    I smash buttons, and I frequently walk off the edge on Super Smash Bros. I always look at the wrong corner of the screen during multiplayer games and think I'm winning because i'm watching someone else's character. I'm also pretty good at having not a single clue how to connect the console to the TV.
    And board games are the worst. Too much clean-up.

    yeah baby! :D


    Get split brain surgery. According an article from college, if you sever the cord that connects your left and right brain halves, and you place a barrier between your left and right eye, then your left and right hands can only react to what their corresponding eyes see. You can pit your hands against each other, since only your left brain will see one hand while only your right brain will see the other.

    Naturally, I wouldn't encourage it unless you had a really good reason like severe epilepsy, but I've heard that most people don't really suffer anything serious from it since we tend to sense almost everything with both brains simultaneously.

    It cracked me up that you have Spank the Monkey right after Settlers of Catan. Isn't that game supposed to be a resource management nightmare. My hats off to you for mastering it.

    Dust 514 is a game I am really looking forward to. It is on PS3 and integrates into the Eve online universe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 0gOjOWDuI#!
    I believe it will be free to play as well so should see a lot of action.

    I read the book on it to (I dig immersion/ Sci-fi) which was alright. In short, developed technology from a alien race leads to immortal infantry solders.

    Aside from that, when I get time I goof with a game called Aion. Recently went Free to play so that is a plus: http://na.aiononline.com/home

    it is developed in Korea so there are a lot of Asian pedo-vibes in it with the chicks (That cuties little girl shit does nothing for me, die hello kitty! :twisted: ) but fairly decent game to space out too and looks great.

    I find too many new video games have great graphics but terrible gameplay.

    I generally stick with old strategy games:

    - Civilization II
    - Age of Empires
    - Heroes of Might & Magic 3
    - Diablo II
    - WoW (although I quit years ago).
