Getting Work Done!

I am still working on the achievements earned blogpost. It is far more of a bitch than previously thought. I have been gaming pretty avidly, and getting prepped for a few massive undertakings.

I started Gears of War 3 for the 3rd time, this save file is my co-op one. We only got ACT 1 completed because we had already played it twice before. Stupid collectibles. I missed 1 and had to go back to get it. I only played 1 chapter of ACT 2 so I'm going to focus more on the co-op file to finish it out more achievements and far more fun. I started some of the secondary modes with HORDE being my favorite. I'm looking to hook up with a good team for it because most people don't have the fortitude to go to 50 it seems.

Picked up COD: WAW and I'm not sure if I like it more than MOH: Airborne. It is a good experience so far with some inventive achievements and of course NAZI ZOMBIES! But like all games of this nature it will take time. Nothing but sheer time.

I started PC gaming again, shocking for me. I'm going to have to either upgrade my current PC a little more or just break down and build a new one. I'll probably start planning my new one in the next few months. I'm hoping to find an I7 processor on sale. Or I could just breakdown and run Bootcamp on my mac and buy a copy of Windows to run on it....might be cheaper. The mac is grossly overpowered and would handle any new game coming out easily along with exceeding the requirements of the other games I have sitting here for PC. I started TINKER which I have to say is actually really fun. Just kind of time consuming and sometimes the achievements can be glitchy, but it isn't anything that I cannot fix(just reload the game should fix it). I also started Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, and am currently searching for co-op partners for it, but while I am waiting on that I am playing through solo getting acquainted with the game.

I am finally nearing the end on NHL 2K6....I'm not a huge fan of sports games, so this has been annoying for me. I only have 1 achievement left and plan to get it done tonight or tomorrow so I can just throw the game away. Mostly because well it isn't worth shit. You can buy it for 99cents or less at gamestop. So trading this in would net me pennies or even more possibly I would have to pay them to take it.

I rented Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 from Blockbuster and plan to get into it today or tonight. I have the unlimited pass and am seeing the benefit of it. Especially now that they raised 1 day rentals on some games to 2.99. So for 16 bucks a month I can rent all I want with no late fees or time limits. And seeing as how I can blow through 7 or more rentals a week when I am in the swing of gaming this is a very good deal.

I still have my Gamefly membership, I downgraded to 1 game out at a time. I'm waiting on them to hopefully send me Family Game Night 3. I enjoy little board games like this when its late at night and I am feeling lazy. I wish shipping didn't take so long, that is a huge complaint. I doubt I will see this game before next week. I sent my previous game on tuesday so I might get lucky and get it saturday if I'm lucky.
