Despite Riddles’ obsession with Winterscapes, and the noticeably cooler weather here in the Great White North, we only had snow once, and it was light and it is gone. Therefore my argument of “he should live in Toronto” is a little moot. Anyway, I’ve been training for a new position at work, and that’s been fun, but it’s also more noticeable when I fuck up, so I’ve been a little nervous. Anyway, let’s talk about my bizarre choice of games that I’ve been playing and thinking about.
God of War Collection, bitches! -
So I’m pretty sure I’ve almost beat the first God of War via the PS3. Fun stuff. My opinion remains the same. It’s cool, fun, and epic, but I wouldn’t heap the praise on in the same way that everybody else has. Still, I’m mildly committed to beating the collection by the end of the year. I never thought I’d say this, but the game might actually be too epic. Kinda like FFXII’s soundtrack.
Dragon Quest? -
Yeah, the series I don’t really care for. I’ve been playing V on the DS and strangely loving it and it’s made me had the desire to play DQVIII for the PS2. That has never happened before. If you know me, you know I’m lukewarm on that title. Weird.
Final Fantasy XIV beta -
I applied. Cross your fingers for me.
Call of Duty is fun to watch -
Seriously, I’ve wasted more hours watching my roommate play Modern Warfare 2 than most people spend playing it. I don’t know why gaming isn’t more of a spectator sport in North America.
I think I had more to say, but that’s really all I’ve been playing, and my eye hasn’t been on the news this week. Plus, I have a countdown list to get to. But anyway, I’ll leave you all with a very recent IM snippet with the one and only Riddles.
Yes, I know I’ve sucked ass this week as a Games Journalist. And as a human being in general, really. What better way to improve my self-esteem than to post embarrassing IM conversations with Lusipurr?
Welcome to Riddlethos, ladies and Gentleman.
Any Facebook stalkers already know that Lusipurr of Lusipurr.com and I have agreed to purchase games for each other. I’m buying Flower for him. He must complete and review it. He is buying Final Fantasy for me on Virtual Console. I must complete and review it. Sounds like a blast, right? Well since Nintendo has a surprisingly easier way to gift games than Sony does, I temporarily logged into his account to purchase Flower for him. Below are the hilarious results.
Riddles isn’t the only one who can make himself look foolish via IM screengrabs!
Oh my God, it’s NATE LILES!
