Games I'm Playing

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Playing on PS4. Maybe five or six hours in as of this writing. Game hasn't really grabbed me yet, in part because both combat and the scaling of buildings appears to have gotten even easier than in previous games.



Despite my stubbornly refusing to play as anyone but Bolton Wanderers, I'm having a blast with this one. My Career mode is off to a shaky start, but my Ultimate Team (with Bolton Wanderers home/away kits and team badge) are unstoppable.


Football Manager 2014

Opted to start my career as unemployed and it then took me a whole in-game year to get a job. That might be a little *too* realistic.


Grand Theft Auto V

Not quite done with the story and, now that GTA Online is live, I'm more inclined to play as my own character than I am as Trevor, Franklin, or Michael.


Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Loving this right now. Every time I feel like I'm close to perfecting a deck, I come up against one that destroys it and forces me to rethink.


Need for Speed: Rivals

Played this almost as soon as I got my PS4 home, which was unfortunate given that none of the multiplayer stuff appeared to be working yet. I need to get back to this now that everything is up and running.


Pokemon X / Y

Finished all the gyms, got my legendary, ready to take on the final four. As of October 25 I've hit 100 hours of play time, way too many of which have been spent breeding and doing online trades.



This is EASILY my favorite PS4 launch game. A good number of folks on my friends list are on the leaderboards, and Brad Shoemaker is officially my nemesis.


Sid Meier's Civilization V

I keep coming back to this one over and over again. I always play on a random map type and with a random civ. Slowly making my way up through the difficulty settings.


The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Several hours in I'm loving every minute. Reminds me of the week or two in college that I spent playing through Link to the Past when I should've been studying.
