Hey there readers! In order to keep up with the minor tradition, here is what I am playing at the moment.

  • Nothing!

I know, it is rather upsetting, but my 360 received the infamous red ring of death way back in March. I haven't been able to get a new one, but I plan to mooch one off of my parents for my upcoming birthday this week.

So to provide more insight into how I play games, here is my Top 10 list:

  1. Mass Effect
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  3. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  4. Kingdom Hearts
  5. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
  6. Bioshock
  7. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  8. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
  10. Halo: Combat Evolved

Yeah... I don't necessarily go outside my comfort zone in video games much. Mass Effect is my top because of the depth of the game, and the fact that I nerd out hard to space fantasy (SG-1/SGU anyone?). Also, the combat game is beyond fluid, so it is comparable to reading a book. Of course, TES games are on there as well, except Arena (because it sucks). I have always been a fan of the Zelda series, even though it does predate me. And last, Halo is a great game, and the story in the first one is exceptionally done.

So more about me. I am a huge sports fan: the Colts, Pacers, Fever, Carl Edwards, and Michael Phelps are my favorites in their respective areas. I can basically watch all of the with the same enthusiasm, so I don't have a favorite except the NFL. So I might make some sports posts if people show interest (but most people who like video games and wikis... don't like sports :p ).

So that is basically my generic Welcome post, hope you enjoy reading in the future!

Shame about your Xbox, mines sleeping until I can replace it (no RROD, but it locks up a lot). I play many of the same games (more FF though) and I wasn’t too fond of The Force Unleashed for some reason *shrug*. Also waiting for SGU to prove itself to me. It’s not bad, but it feels a lot like Battlestar Galactica to me rather than a Stargate, but fingers crossed.

Y’know, I *own* Force Unleashed, but…I’m pretty sure the plastic is still on it. Star Wars has always been kind of a strange holy thing for me, so I’m always really nervous about anything Star Wars that isn’t one of the movies.

My Xbox got the red ring recently, but i got it fixed in no time, as for the force unleashed; Its a fun game with nice ideas, but its pretty 2 dimensional and repetitive, worth a try - and i found 1 of the alternate ending jarring, i wont give away any spoilers though :P

How about Knights of the Old Republic, Fable, and Fable II? They’re great games as well.

KotOR is a good game, but it left me wanting more. The Fable series is good (with the first being better), but the whole cartoony feel made me want to vomit 7 times out of 10.
