I have Call of Duty 4 on my PC at work which I only downloaded as a way to try Steam, which is a potential competitor of one of my employers. I haven’t touched it since July or so.
I have an XBOX 360 at home, collecting dust. The fan started to get loud on this, my second unit, a few months ago, so I shifted the DVD playing load over to my old DVD player. The quality sucks, but my son doesn’t care so long as he gets to see his Dora, Barney, Firetruck and (thankfully) Star Wars videos.
Sadly, I have not played a game on the XBOX 360 since, oh, April-ish. I am still playing Tiger Woods 07 if that’s any indication of my gaming woes this year. I got rid of my GameFly account after I was the victim of mail-fraud. It seems a not-so-friendly mail carrier was abducting GameFly envelopes and selling the games, which explained why GameFly kept threatening me with collections when I had sent their games back weeks prior. Luckily, they caught her and locked her up.
But that doesn’t help my situation. The XBOX is probably going to catch the red ring of death virus just like the first one did, so I haven’t been in a hurry to turn it on lately.
And that is starting to suck because I am totally starting to get the gaming itch again. I am thinking it is time to turn the corner. . .There are a few games I wouldn’t mind checking out, but I feel quite out of touch with the gaming world lately. So I need some advice on what to play. Hmmm. Where would I go to find out about games? Where can I read game reviews and download demos and such?
And thank Al Gore for the Information Superhighway because if not for that and these blog things I keep hearing so much about, I would literally have to get up out of my chair, walk 19 feet across the main room of our office and knock on Todd’s office door to ask him what games I should be playing. Why do all that when you can just go visit Todd’s blog by clicking here??
