Currently Playing Week of July 24th, 2011

OK, I'm here again letting you know what I'm playing. Which as last week showed my lust of gaming had trickled to nothingness. Being a gamer of course this is mostly referred to as a "depression or rut resulting in having no drive or motivation to play games", but I was playing Game Dev Story over the last week. Whether other gamers consider that a "game" doesn't matter to me, because it has game in the name, DUH, so it must be a "real" game. Anyhow, I've been playing a "real" game on PS3 this past week so maybe I'm over that short term rut.

PS3: Dragon Age II (yes, I'm giving it another shot)

For Game Dev Story I mostly done with it. After completing your first 20 years and the competition dies (no new consoles from any of the major companies) you have to create your own goal posts. Of course I made my companies first portable and it was cool developing for it, but I will have a more in depth review going up soon.

Now to Dragon Age II and why I'm playing it again. I thought to myself on Friday of last week what made me not like the game so much. Could my thoughts have been clouded by the wave a amazing games releasing all around it with the first 3 months of the year? Well no. Dragon Age II is average and I mean that in the sense that what is great about the game is also what can be very bad for the game. I won't get into it right now, because I'm going to beat it. Then I will see how things wrap up at the end. Just got to keep reminding myself that Dragon Age III will happen.
