A thoughtful and personal exploration of games

Gaming Diet

My gaming diet has been pretty sparse lately.

I’ve been really enjoying Civilization IV and just starting a custom game and playing as a random civilization. It’s quite a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Typically I get bored around the time where I have to win though. The build up, the expansion, the struggling to make a civilization that can stand the test of time is where all the fun is for me. Sealing the deal, winning, is just unnecessary at that point.

The other day a buddy and I got in some Diablo 3 and that was a pleasant change of pace. I do enjoy playing my Wizard, but he’s a mite fragile. I kind of have to be in the mood to kite enemies around to play him.

I’ve also been playing the occasional couple of rounds of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. I’m almost through with the Sentinel and I’m considering which Infiltrator I’d like to play.

I’m holding off on playing any Star Wars: The Old Republic until Rise of the Hutt Cartel drops (and even then I might hold off because it’s going to be CROWDED). SWTOR isn’t a game I just pick up and play because it’s a serious time investment… also my computer has the occasional issue with running it.

I’m also holding off on playing any Star Trek Online until the new expansion lets us play as Romulans in May. I’m very much looking forward to that. It’ll be crowded too, but STO is a game I’ve whupped pretty well and it’s easier for me to just pick it up than SWTOR.

Yesterday I knocked out Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge for my next Let’s Play. I’ll start posting them this Wednesday. I was surprised at how quick the game was considering how I hadn’t played it in a number of years and I couldn’t remember most of it.

Anyway, not much going on here, so, until next time!

  1. So a while back, I talked about joining your fleet in STO. Well, I finally got around to installing the game. It sounds like we’re both busy in other games (go go SWTOR!), but if we both come back to STO with the Romulan expansion, it’d be fun if I could join up with your fleet.

    • Sure! I don’t know who’s playing these days as I haven’t cracked STO since before I went to PAX East. We’ll see how things go. Shoot me an in-game mail when you can and we’ll see what we can do.

      • I logged in last night and was confronted by a sea of mission requests and reward; I have no idea what’s going on! I’ll probably start a new character and work my way up the food chain, so there’s no real rush on anything at all! Anyways, from the look of your other posts, you’re recovering from a TOR binge, and waiting for the Romulans later in the month.

      • Yeah, two weeks of nothing but SWTOR is hard on me. 😛 Definitely waiting on the Romulans. Working on Neverwinter right now at least until the new game smell wears off a bit.
