Weekend Gaming, at last!

I have been swamped (SWAMPED!) at work the past couple of weeks on a project that has sucked up a large portion of my free time. When I finally to get a free moment, I’m so spent from my other duties that I haven’t had a desire to do much gaming. I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel at work and my mood is already lifting. I’m ready to pick up the familiar controller and get back in the game.

In order to gear up for a great week of gaming when GTA IV and Mario Kart Wii are released, I figure I should knock out another game in my queue before everything gets pushed back to make room for the newcomers. I got very close to finishing Bioshock last year, so I figure now would be a good time to get back to that and finish it up. I really want to see how it ends.

I’m also making my way through Super Mario Galaxy, which I am still thoroughly enjoying. The kids love to watch me play it, so that’s our bonding game. I can’t get over how much fun platforming is again.

I’m also eying a couple DS games, but I’ll probably hold off on those until the real gaming lull hits this summer. I’ve got enough on my plate.

What are you guys playing? Planning on picking up either Mario Kart Wii or GTA IV?

  1. It has been an insane month for me and all I can do is hope my wife doesn’t do the math and figure out how much I spent on games so far this month.

    On pressure from my nephew, I used some of my on-call money (I get paid for carrying the support pager) to get Halo 3.

    I just got Call of Duty 4 and Two Worlds in the mail.

    I broke down and got Guitar Hero II on the 360 even though I already had it for the PS2. I had gotten Guitar Hero III earlier in the month.

    That’s not even taking into account getting Doom and Small Arms from LIVE Arcade or ordering my full account for MechQuest.com.

    My Pile of Shame has grown considerably.
