Welcome to Monday! One of the last Mondays of 2012, too. Or...the
last one, depending on if you watch the H2
channel or not. The year is winding down, I'm winding up, trying to finish some things in a timely fashion.
So of course I forget to do any mcgeeisms beforehand. Happens a lot.
Since I last CAPPED, I've put a little bit of time into games, which is something I sort of enjoy. I rented Far Cry 3
(who does that anymore, amirite? *straightens tie*) and gave it a few hours. Seems like good times. It's a joy to just wander about, trying things. I prefer to go stealthy, because...well I don't really know why... regardless, stealth is my jam. The first thing I bought was a bow, and had a grand ol' time sneaking up on pigs and people. Shoot/stab/skin/loot. Not bad. But wait: *HEART ATTACK*
what the fuck was-oh a Komodo Dragon. Okay. Heartbeat back to normal...oh look: flowers in the water. That couldn't possibly go wrong! *Pluck-OHSHITCROCODILEFUCKTHISGAME!
The missions at the beginning were fun enough, too. The atmosphere created by the story is neat, but the story itself seems rather messy. It's amazing how fast things are forgiven, though, when you hand me a mountain-top and a hang glider.
I had some here and there play with a few things, some Wii games, some Halo 4
, some Borderlands 2
. I even hosted Sonic & All-stars Racing Transformed
for the first Wii U FNF! Despite the god-awful title, the game is pretty fun. Motion blur is a real problem, though.
So yeah. Back to last-minute shopping, writing, prepping things I may or may not finish, and generally being a dufus. Better mcgeeisms: the perpetually out of reach goal.
CAP CAP. CAP CAP.
