Weekend Gaming

I’m a little late getting this one out, but this weekend is the first weekend of college football. Which means my gaming will be pretty sparse. But, I hope to get a little gaming in this weekend. I realized after posting the Borderlands 2 trailer, that I still have not beaten the original Borderlands. So I have a couple weeks to rectify that situation. I may get some Borderlands in this weekend if I can pull myself away from college football.

I’ve also been playing a handful of games on my PC and iPhone that I’ll be posting about soon. They all involve one thing: Towers.

Also, I’ll be mentioning this in a post real soon, but we’ve also added a new peripheral to the video gaming rig. So the kids will be wanting to play that whenever they can this weekend.

What will you be playing?

Borderlands 2 is almost here!

I’m posting this again because: A) I am super pumped about Borderlands 2 next month and B) I unironically love dubstep.

Give Up

Just go ahead and give up.

Weekend Gaming

So, after I transformed into Albert Freaking Einstein and fixed the color wheel on my TV, I am back in business when it comes to the console world. I had a little workaround while my TV was out of commission, using my PC monitor to connect to the Xbox 360, but since my monitor’s resolution was 1920×1200, things looked a little muddy. It will be nice to get back to my normal operations, though, because I had made a bit of progress in Mass Effect 3 and I really want to finish that up. I don’t like leaving the galaxy in the lurch like that!

But, with the Xbox not being an attractive option these past couple weeks, I’ve also taken to a bit of “snacking” from my Steam Library, playing a bit of Age of Empires Online and Defense Grid: The Awakening.

So now my weekend gaming battle station is again fully operational. So I’ll be doing a little bit of everything this weekend.

What are you going to play?

UPDATE: I just noticed that Hero Academy just launched on Steam, so I’ll be adding that to my weekend gaming, starting: NOW.

August Releases

August is a holiday for a certain group of sports gamers that await the yearly release of their Super Mario Brothers, Madden NFL Football.
