So I've taken a break from Starcraft 2 to read the cblogs and present you with this recap. I'm honestly not sure how much longer I'm going to be playing the game as hardcore as I have been. I've probably put in well over 100 hours in the last 3 weeks, and I'm kind of getting burned out on it. Besides playing tons and tons of multiplayer, I'm presently spending lots of time playing through the single player campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. Once I'm done with that, I'll probably be spending a lot less time with the game.
A lot of my friends were shocked when I posted my official review last week on Gamer Limit
and I didn't give it a perfect 10. I mean don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the game, but there are a few small flaws that kept it from the perfect 10 score. If Blizzard could make a couple of tweaks to the multiplayer balance I think it could be perfect.
The next big I'm looking forward to at this point it Metroid: Other M
. I really wanted to play it at E3 this year, but the line was typically well over an hour long and I didn't want to waste that much time waiting for a game that was coming out in only a few months. Rest assured, I'm super excited about this game and can't wait to dive into it.
Well, I think that's enough about me for one night. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.
