So I hope everyone has had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend. From what I can tell, it appears a lot of the community members stayed away from the internets this weekend and either ventured outside to enjoy the sunny weather, or caught up on their gaming. I'm honestly hoping that most people spent this time outside getting away from all things video game and internet related, but I'm probably wrong about that. I for one hardly spent any time gaming the last few days, and instead decided to spend the time with family and friends. It's been awesome, but I did return to the internet to read everyone's blog this weekend and write up this recap.
First a couple of orders of business. I would like to announce that Yojimbo and I got away from all the childish video games this weekend and played a man's game, a game of Chess. After two long hours, in which I spent way to much time thinking about my next move, Yojimbo bested me and proved he is the better Chess player. I feel a little bad because during this two hours I hardly made for interesting company, since I concentrated too much and didn't really talk, but I hope I get a rematch soon. Yojimbo may have won the battle, but the way will rage on.
When I have found time to game lately, I have finally delved into the world of Dead Space and holy shit is this an incredible game. I remember that it got awesome reviews when it came out, and tons of community members told me to try it, but I never believed it could be this good. I mean it's absolutely incredible. The world is so immersive, and it's just so much fun to play, not to mention the fact I've jumped out of my seat scared shitless more then a few times. Yes I have now started recommending this game to all of my friends. If you haven't played it you definitely should. It's awesome and deserves your attention.
Finally, before I begin the recaps, I would like to say WTF has been up with the Cblogs this weekend? Did anyone else notice all the random blogs made by someone trying to sell leather items like handbags? The guy has been spamming 6-7 blogs in a row, and filling up the cblogs with crap. Luckily it's finally been taken down, but it still sucks that it happened and that the guy wasn't banned sooner. In other community news, there were a lot of new people who introduced themselves this weekend. Just a note to all you new people. Please get an avatar, and please fill in your profile on the right side of your blog. It's nice to know who you are when we are reading your blogs. I'm not gonna say anything else about the community this weekend because Yojimbo told me I should relax and take it easy on the community for a while.
Now that all of that is out of the way, let's get on with the recaps shall we ...
