We've got another convert! I should update that game... if I wasn't having driver issues again...
Yep. I bought GMOD 10 on a whim and it was more than worth it, especially with all the Fretta stuff that's coming out now. Absolutely fantastic. My Steam username is ahrenjb if anyone cares to add it.
Stalker: SoC and Clear Sky were both phenomenal. Well, until my Clear Sky somehow corrupted and made all my save files worthless. I'll be doing a reinstall and adding the appropriate mods eventually.
Had a good run going in both Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins, but for some reason neither held my attention long enough to get more than about 2/3 through ME2 and 1/3 through Dragon Age.
Finally got around to playing HL2:EP2. Found it far more enjoyable than EP1. They managed to not make the overall plot ANY clearer though.
Discovered another fun but unfortunately shallow game, EpochStar. It's got me wanting to play Transcendence again. Transcendence has called me back nearly as many times as EV Nova, and I was compelled to donate to the man behind it. Speaking of space games, I got a Saitek Cyborg Evo and it has breathed new life into X3:TC. Those M3 class heavy fighters can lay on a world of hurt. Flight Sim X is also enjoyable.
Finally, I'm only a little ashamed to admit I gave in to ultimate nostalgia temptation with the release of the latest couple Pokemon rehashes. Nabbed a DS Lite off some guy on Craigslist for dirt cheap, but not that I have had a chance to evaluate the platform first hand and look at whats out there for it, I'm a bit disappointed. It got me thinking, why ISN'T there a Transcendence like game for the DS? Or for that matter, Notrium? Notrium would work superbly on the DS I have a feeling. So why are there only 8 million JRPGs, GBA/PS1 games ported over, and Cooking Mama? I'm getting an Acekard for some sweet homebrew action. I think it'll make a nice eReader, and the VNC client out there for DS looks quite interesting.
I guess that's it for the latest edition of my gaming chronicles.
