I don't come here nearly as often as I did (that should be obvious). The two main reasons are the great games that I don't have enought time to play and Joystiq/Kotaku/ArsTechnica. Ever since I checked those blogsites out, I've been hooked on the up to the minute information, usually a day or two ahead of GS (if not more). System Wars lost its hold on me as well, since you can only ignore asshats for so long before it wears you down.
I seem to be playing my 360 every night-mainly Halo 3 but some arcarde games too. Before that it was Forza 2, Bioshock, and Shivering Isles. I keep meaning to finish Dead Rising, Saint's Row, Command & Conquer 3, and Rainbow Six: Vegas, but I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to shoehorn all of this gaming goodness into my life. This is definitely the best time to be a gamer in terms of quantity of quality games, and the 360 is the place to be. It sucks in terms of having to master time management, though.
I can't even remember when I last touched my Wii (groan-how else can I put it?). I still haven't finished Twilight Princess and my other Wii titles are kinda boring now. I do need to get new Wii games (Metroid Prime: Corruption, Wario Ware Smooth Moves, and Super Paper Mario are on my short list of to buy soon). My PC still gets occasional love, mainly for Civ IV: Beyond the Sword. I can't remember the last time I played Guild Wars (a past favorite) or any other game.
I am still amazed that SONY suits can't read the writing on the wall. I appreciate the new $400 price tag, but at the expense of BC? What happened to all that smack talk they were laying down on the 360 for software emulation? The new price leader won't even be able to do that-SONY just self-owned. Personally, I still have my PS2 (even though I don't play it), but BC is important to me because I usually trade in the last gen SONY console for the next one. I also don't have an infininite amount of space in my entertainment center, and the PS3 lineup is 'Teh Suck' without BC.
In the future, I'm looking forward to Mass Effect, which is my only MUST BUY title coming up. After that I need to decide between The Orange Box (Portal looks sweet, and I loved HL2 on the PC but hate kb/m) and Call of Duty 4 (played in the Beta and loved it). $$$ is the main limiting factor: I have enough to cover 2 of these 3 games before Christmas, so that means I have to decide and hope that Santa brings gifts to 35 year olds.
Well, here's to hoping your gamin life is as rich and meaningful as mine is. I'm signing off now to play some Civ IV BTS (my wife has the TV this a.m.), so gl and Happy Hunting!
