All About SpideR_CentS
Welp, It came much later then in past years, but it is almost here. My annual super awesome gaming day. Basically every year I get busier and busier and have less and less times for games. This year I bought my first home and also have a new job with longer hours then I did in the past. I still can squeeze a few hours of gaming in from time to time, but it's few and far between. When I was around 27 (I'm 33 now) or so I decided to take 1 day off of work every year and pley games all day long. No girlfriend, no friends (except maybe online ones), no distractions. Just about 16+ hours of gaming goodness. It is my selfish day. I eat what I want, and play what I want. The phone is turned off. And it is awesome.
Every year I put together a time line and schedule of what I intend to play. It's more of something that gets my hyped up for the day then an real schedule. If I get into a game, sometimes I will just play it all day. Last year I posted it up here and people seemed to get a kick out of the idea. So with out further adieu, the 2012 game day...
9:30am - Wake up, Let the Dog out, Run him a bit, Eat something small.
10:00am - NBA 2k. Hey my Lakers are sucking in real life, but on NBA 2k they can play like they should!
11:00am - Skyrim. I did beat Skyrim when it came out, but then never got a chance to get back into it. I made a new guy (ranger/assassin type) and am looking forward to leveling him up a little.
1:00pm - Lunch. Taco Bell... what else could it be on a gaming binge? Play with the dog, etc.
2:00pm - Bayonetta. Still sealed in the plactic from when I picked it up for $10 over a year ago. Going to try it out.
3:00pm - Bully (just like last year lol) Love this game, want to get a little further in it or maybe ever beat it.
4:00pm - Gears of War 3 Campaign. Will probably be on this one for a while. Can't wait. Only made it through act 1 so far.
6:00pm - Forza 4 - Level up a bit.
7:00pm - Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning - Suprisingly fun game.
8:00pm - Another food break
9:00pm - A game I bought and never played. I have a bunch of sealed games.
10:00pm - 2:00am - Some online gaming. Possibly Gears 3, Maybe MW3, Forza 4, Spades, Uno who knows.
And thats it!
So I am a 31 year old gamer without much time to game. I have a full-time job, a girlfriend, a puppy, friends, family, etc. In a normal week I probally can get about 10 hours or less of gaming time in. I remember when I was younger and could play games all weekend long any weekend I wanted. I remember playing games in 10 hour stretches. And I loved it. So about 4 years ago I had a planned day off and I played games all day long. For like 15 hours. After that day I decided to make it an annual stress relieving tradition. Every year I take one random day off from workin Jan and play games all day. I make a tenitive schedule of what I want to play (I never stick to it, what fun would that be?) mostly just to get hyped up for the day. I also like to play a lot of games I neverfinished or have yet to start.No job, no friends (except online ones), no girlfriend, just games. So this is what I have planned and later I will post what I did.
9am-10am - Wake up, let the pup out, hit up Dunkin' Donuts for a coffee and bagel sandwich. Get everything all ready to go (pot of coffee on, lap top, games out, etc)
10am-10:30am - Either Pac-Man C.E. DX or Geometry Wars to get my eyes open and ready to go. Both awesome games.
10:30am - 12pm - Super Mario Galaxy 2 - I could see myself getting sucked into this game and playing it for hours. This is the only game I remember in the last month playing for a good amount of time in one sitting. I think I played it for like 4 hours the day I got it.
12:00pm-12:45 - MLB '10 The Show - Best baseball game ever made. Haven't played it in months, but def gonna get a game in befor lunch.
12:45pm-1:15pm - Lunch - What else for a gaming day? Taco Bell, baby!
1:15pm-2:15pm - Fable 3 - Need a little easy RPG action.
2:15pm-3:15pm - Bully SE - Haven't played this game in over a year. Would like to make a little progress in the campaign.
3:15pm-3:30pm - Break - Let the Dog out, Smoke, Etc
3:30pm-5:30pm - Read Dead Redemption - Another game I have hardly played, but I really liked. Want to at least completea few missions in this.
5:30pm-6:15pm - NBA 2k11 - Maybe the best NBA game ever. Probally will do one of the Jordan Challenges
6:15-6:30 - Break
6:30pm-7:30pm - Forza Motorsport 3 - Best console sim racer ever! Level up a little.
7:30pm-8:30pm - New Super Mario Bros Wii - Got this for Christmas and have only been able to play it once. Awesome old-school platforming action!
8:30pm-9:00pm - Dinner - Thinking pizza...
9:00pm-10:00pm - Crackdown 2 - Also have only been able to play this once since I got it and I wanna play through it a little.
10:00pm-11:00pm - Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Haven't even started the campaign yet and thats what I plan to do...
11:00-11:15 - Break
11:15-12:00am - Halo Reach - Currently my fav game atm. Will just do some quick online matches.
12:00am-2:00am (maybe later) - Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion - So close to getting 1250/1250 gamerscore on this one. Been playing this game for years but haven't touched it in months. Just gotta complete some Shivering Isles stuff.
Then sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. I want to make this a national holiday!
So only having the PS360 combo lasted for about 14 months. Found a sale on Wii's for $100 and picked one up. Totally worth it for the Nintendo exclusives like Monster Hunter Tri, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Guess I will wait til ned gen for that gaming PC Still Like the 360 the best.
