It’s Been a Long Time…

Haven’t done one of these in a while, here goes nothing!

I’ve been looking into a lot of old PC RPGs here lately and have been wondering what it would take for a deep and long RPG with and old school PC aesthetic to show up on something like a Xbox Live Arcade.  It probably takes way more work than I can even fathom but I’d love to see considering I missed all games of this type.

I picked up Bulletstorm recently and it reminds me of an old 8-bit action game (but with way more dick tits).  Run, Gun and don’t stop for anything.

Mass Effect 3 comes out next week and I could not be more psyched for it’s release.  If I can get off this laziness kick I’ve been on, I’ll hopefully have a lot to say about it come this time next week.

I’ve moved into a house since my last post and have way more space than I did in my apartment.  This new found space has afforded me a “man-cave”.  I have occupied this space with an old CRT television and a PS2, Gamecube, Xbox and a Dreamcast (that doesn’t seem to work unfortunately).  I really want to get an arcade cabinet or pinball machine for the room but living out here in the sticks of NC, its hard to find anybody who sells them especially at an affordable price.

My girlfriend really wants the new SSX game and I’ll probably get it for her this weekend.  I want lie, I’m excited to play it myself to but I really do miss the over-the-top track design of SSX Tricky.  I guess that’s the trade off for having a game with 153 drops versus like 10.

I still have a game in the shrink wrap that I got for Christmas last year, please forgive me Batman: Arkham City.

I put 110 hours in Skyrim and got every achievement on the 360 version.  It’s safe to say that it’s been one of my favorite gaming experiences in a long time.  I’m really looking forward to the DLC that Bethesda has planned for it.

Fez needs to hurry up and come out.

Even though it’s not in the shrink wrap, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword might as well be for as much as I’ve played it.  I’m still in the first dungeon and have found a unique situation where outside interferences keep me from playing a certain game.  You see my new house is awfully cold and I have a few heaters in my living room.  I know from past experience (with the last Zelda game on the Wii actually) that the Wii remote and these heaters to not work well together.

My bosses at work today decided it would be a good team building experience to ask everyone what they wanted to be when they grow up.  When my turn came along I didn’t answer right away and someone yelled out “Video Game Designer” and I said sure.  The truth is I don’t really want to make video games,  I’m not really bursting with ideas for new concepts or how to make existing ones better and I’m fine with being a consumer of games.  I’m going to share a secret here about what I really want to do involving video games and hope it comes to fruition one day.

I really want to open up my own little video game themed cafe/old game store/book store/arcade/bar.  Sounds complicated I know but the basic idea would be a little store that sells used older games,books about games and old strategy guides. It would also have a little cafe that sells video game themed drinks and pastries.  Also off in one corner there would be a collection of old arcade and pinball machines and at night the video game themed cocktails would come out.  All this while video game soundtracks play lightly in the background all day.  It sounds like a lot to put into one place, I know but I think all these things would mesh well together into a cool spot for people who love the medium to come by and relax from time to time.

It’s been a stupid long time since I’ve posted and I’m gonna try and not do that anymore.  I’ve got a few ideas to spice things up and some ideas for some new blogs, more on that later.

    I really REALLY need SSX! I liked both SSX Tricky and SSX3, but I definitely like SSX3 better. SSX blur was horrible. I was exposed to it and was unimpressed. I think the new SSX is gonna be AMAZING and from the demo, seems like they will have great music, as usual.
