In My Digital Hands (and Weekend Gaming)


Recently it seems like the only thing that has turned my crank, video game-wise, has been zombies. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, but The Walking Dead had me going for a while (more on that soon) and then all I heard about was how engaging State of Decay was. Even though my Xbox 360 has started to accumulate a layer of dust, I decided to give it a try.

So this what I’ll be playing this weekend, along with Animal Crossing New Leaf on the 3DS. If there’s time, I’ll get in a game of Infinite Crisis or League of Legends, but right now I think I’d rather be scavenging an abandoned diner for something to eat before the “Zeds” arrive than just about anything else.

What will you be playing this weekend?

In My Digital Hands

This has been in my digital hands since Nat turned me on to this game almost three years ago, but the love has been reborn on the Xbox and I’m having a blast with this one, too.

If I was ambitious, I’d also list all the games I’ve been grabbing in the Steam Sale, but I’ve only added a few this time around. I am still holding out on buying The Walking Dead, but my willpower is running out.

My backlog, however, is not…

Loot Ninja

So I’ve been putting in a lot of time with Torchlight on the Xbox 360 (a post is forthcoming) and I started to notice that I have a distinct looting “style.” So I was wondering, what type of looter are you?

Me, I’m a wait until the inventory is full before I delve in. I don’t know why. Sometimes I wait until I’ve reached the end of a level. But whatever comes first, of course. I identify everything magic, equip what I can wear and send everything to town to be sold. I know that is mostly specific to Torchlight since I can send my pet back to town loaded up with all the extra loot to

Do you immediately inspect the item as soon as you pick it up? Or do you wait until your inventory fills up to examine your booty? Or do you even pick everything up? Do you just ignore everything you already know you won’t use and just grab what suits your fancy?
