For starters, I wanted to thank champ and the other guys from GUFU for throwing that Halo Reach gamenight. That was fun and we should do it more often.
I haven't had much to blog about these past few weeks, and I'm usually too tired from work to want to type it up anyway. But if you want to know how my summer's been going, it's been going well, made even better since my semester grades came back with all As and one B. Hello, scholarship checks. :cool:
As far as gaming goes, I've mostly been going in and out of Diablo 3 and Team Fortress 2 with some other games on the side. I was also able to finish a completionist runthrough of both American Nightmare and LIMBO. And before you guys ask, no, I don't feel like getting Torchlight II. I have Diablo 3, and I'm already overloaded on the fantasy games. I'll likely get The Withcer 2 EE long before I get Torchlight.
For the series I planned to revisit this summer, I settled on Max Payne. I've been hearing a lot of good things about the 3rd one and this is as good as anytime to give this series another go. Like God of War, I only played the first game that I borrowed from a friend a few years back on PS2. About a year ago I bought the second one also on PS2 and only got 10 minutes into the game when I realized how much of poorly-controlled, ugly mess it was and soon after returned it.
Since I usually like to keep my franchises contained to one system, I was going replay the first two games on Xbox. I ordered the first one off Amazon a week ago. Then I read how better suited the series was on PC. So now I'm just going to download the first game off Steam and resell the Xbox version once it comes in the mail.
And that's about it for now. I'll be sure tune in to the E3 conferences and share my views on them.
