The year of meh

E3 2012 has come and gone and this year just seemed a bit meh.
Yes, there were a lot games out there but it seemed like most of them were just sequels as usual.
Even though I am very guilty of still buying and enjoying many of the sequels that were shown this year, I'm seriously dying for some new IPs.
Sadly, I think that will not happen in the current generation of consoles. I don't want another console but I think in order for these new ideas to come to life, it needs to be done on a brand new console.

              I really need to kick start this dumb thing. I'll want to do it and then I lose interest in it. I blame myself for not getting folks over to it read it. I think that may be it. There has to be a way to get people to read this thing.

              I have discovered that I'm addicted to a new form of gaming. Mobile gaming has taken me over for the last few days since I brought the HTC Sensation into my life. I can easily see why the Playstation Vita has had a no-so-great launch in Japan. Mobile gaming is so taking that market away from the true handhelds. Mobile gaming can be done in small bursts and the games are really cheap. Sometimes even free!

              I've played games like Angry Birds, Tiny Tower, Escape, Where's my Water?, and My Pocket Rancher. I'm just truely amazed how fun and detailed these little games are.

I can has GPS for life? :D

             Hey everyone. I hope everyone had an awesome holiday like I did. It was filled with good times and my only complaint was that I wished it was longer.

             Like many folks, the new year brings alot of resolutions. I've never been real big into doing these but there is something I wish to figure out about myself in 2012. I would like to figure out who exactly I am or what I have become. I guess "finding myself" is the correct phrase for it yet I have never liked that phrase to begin with.  I don't need to find myself. I'm right here. Haha.

            I think my main issue is that I don't seem to fit in much with alot of people anymore. It's weird that I say that because I feel that being a nerd, I should be able to fit in with those kinds of folks. Most of my friends that have similar tastes, I don't seem to quite fit in with much anymore. Something has changed and I just don't feel like I belong like I used to. Outside of that, there is the attempt to try to fit in with the people that you consider yourself to be. That seems to fail too. After reading the "Nerd Raging" posts around the internet from the various forums and blogs, I'm starting to think that I definitely don't fit in there either. Hell, after viewing all of that nonsense, it seems like my so-called "kind" are nothing but a bunch of jerks who spend all night up in their basement trying to make another person feel dumb by calling them whatever demeaning word possible just to make themselves feel awesome or give them the feeling of "winning the internet." Troll is usually the popular word thrown around amongst these types of forum dwellers. Trying to meet people outside of the internet isn't very successful either. The people who consider themselves the same as myself can be quite frightening when they are out in public. Mostly people I would not find myself caught out in public with. I know it sounds wrong to think that but it sure comes off that way to me. I don't want to sound stuck up or snooty or anything. I far from that kind of person. I just don't think they fit with the kind of person I think I am.

           I do know that the people who I get along with the most in my life is my family. I do believe I have the most awesome and fun family in the world. The only thing there is that I fit in with them outside of my personal hobby. That is a good thing in every way possible. I just need to find or fill that void in the hobby part of my life.

          I think when people think of me, I'm sure they think "nerd." He likes to play games. He doesn't look like a nerd or act like one, but in reality, he is a gaming nerd. Atleast, this is what I have been told from many of people. I don't think that but it's what I'm told.  Maybe I'm just my own person. Maybe I just don't fit in with the stereotype because I am my own stereotype. I have no idea. I do plan on trying to figure this out.


        Outside from all of this "self-finding" crap, the gaming count has gone up quite a bit. Since my last post on Dec. 16th, I have gone from 31 games up to 44 games. I couldn't help the Buy 2 Get 1 free deals at Gamestop. That and I picked up a bit of games from Christmas and some more with gift money.

       Of all those games I have obtained, I keep returning to Rage and Split Second. Both are very fun games and come at a fairly affordable price tag. If you are looking for some affordable fun, I highly recommend you check these games out.

Is there a such thing as too much?

          Yes, the topic of my post is the question of the day, week, month, possibly year. I ask it because I have put myself up to 31 Xbox 360 games. Half of them, I haven't even finished. I'm working on it slowly. Constant returns back to Battlefield 3 do not help my problem. Sad thing is, I'm always wanting more. I'm sure I'll have some more added to the collection come Xmas time. If not, I'll add more myself.
          I will say that picking up all these older games to add to the collection has made me enjoy them all over again. I picked up Halo 3 ODST, beat it, and then quickly went out and picked up Halo 3 just because I enjoyed playing in that world so much. It's fun to hear all the voice actors that you didn't pick up on the first around in the second playthrough.
          I can't be the only one with this problem of collecting games just for the purpose of having them. I mean, I have every intent to beat them... eventually.

Look at me, I'm dancing!

            So, as promised, I am blogging tonight. I have an important topic that has been plaguing my mind for some time now. Hopefully, I can receive some useful explanations for my subject.

            Eversince I quit WoW, I've thrown myself into console gaming heavily. It's something I do every night and if I go without gaming atleast for 30 mins a day, I get the twitch. It sounds sad, I know. It's just my way to relax and unwind.
            Through my many days of racing, FPSing, platforming, RPGing, and action adventuring, I find myself wanting to chat amongst others about my adventures or just talk about gaming in general. My lovely wife provides some great and intelligent discussions but I cannot chat with her all the time about them. She has her hobbies to entertain herself and I do not want to keep her from them. I have my awesome RL friends to chat with on them but I find ourselves not able to chat about things as often as I like because we are all grown up now and have jobs, responsibilities, and significant others that they have to focus their time with. So, I started to browse around the internet in hopes for some intelligent conversation among other games with similar tastes. Boy, I so found the opposite.
            Everywhere I go, no matter what the topic is, there is someone always trying to bash someone for that person's opinion no matter how valid it may be. It starts as a simple crack at their spelling then turns into a flame war about another intelligence and finally turns into complete nonsense about nothing. I search and search and search for anything better. It just turns into the same crap over and over again. Trolls fighting among trolls about trolls. It goes on forever. Is this what the community of gamers have turned into?
            I have pretty much given up in attempts to keep my sanity and decided to just keep my hopeful conversation to my Facebook and Blog. I mean, my friends can't ever get that bad. It's why they are my friends.


             And just for some sake of trying to start up a conversation, I'm trying Borderlands again since my taste for games have changed. So, yeah, Borderlands...DISCUSS!

           Yeah, I know. I didn't keep my promise. I'm a terrible person. Well, I did keep it but it's just wasn't as soon as I thought it would be. Just kinda lost interest with it. Perhaps laziness got in there too. :D  Either way, I have finally updated it to an extent and I plan on adding more to it very soon. I have two future posts in my end that I hope to bring some life to the blog. Atleast maybe some decent gaming discussion. One can always hope.

          Look for the real update and one of the real topics in my head tomorrow. I should be able to remember to do it. If not, you can rag on on my Facebook. :)
