So, now I'm on a one month hiatus from gaming. Where before I was pissed about not having time to play, I've committed myself to putting down the mouse/keyboard/gamepad/iPodTouch for an entire month. I got really sick back around Christmas Day and my wife seems to think that I don't get enough rest, so she suggested and I agreed to take a month with no games. No Gears of War 2, Fable II, Resistance 2, Left 4 Dead (PC). Oh well. I've even got a friend at work who keeps reminding me that we need to play through GoW2 co-op on Insane to get the achievement. Damn, well I'll have to post again once the ban is over. LAME!!!

Due to certain financial issues swirling around mi casa at this time of the year, I have been liquidating a large portion of my "last-gen" game library. At first, like in some kind of fevered madness, I planned to get rid of all of my games, systems, memorabilia, etc... and give up games until I had the money to start again. Thankfully, my wife isn't a heartless wench and after one short trip to eBay where she saw 5 year old games going for $50+ she told me to "just keep your games". I solidified my criteria for sale to those games I had played and was content to get rid of at a cheap price, with no plans to repurchase again. I'm a couple hundred dollars closer to economic stability, but now I'm questioning my collection and my complete lack of time to complete any game fully. Most recently, I have played through Mirror's Edge and made serious (but severely hampered) progress through Dead Space, Gears of War 2, Tomb Raider Legend (WTF? I know) Pixel Junk: Eden and too many others to recount here. I typically don't get more than 30 minutes to a couple of hours to play games at night, so with this complete lack of personal time I think it's a lost cause; buying new games only to have a stack of barely played titles staring me in the face for months to come.
