Cblogs of 2/13/10 and 2/14/10 + SilverDragonisms


I just want to wish a Happy Valentine's Day to all those Dtoid community members who are lucky enough to have someone special in their lives to share the day with. For all of you who are single, Happy Singles Awareness Day.

I spent the entire day treating my girlfriend like a princess. When she woke up I served her breakfast in bed, I took care of all the chores in the house all day and waited on her hand and foot, and I cooked her a romantic dinner at night. Suffice to say, she had a pretty damn good day, which makes me extremely happy!

Speaking of happy, I'm super excited that after 45 hours I finally beat Mass Effect 2 this weekend. I can't believe I have to wait another 2 years for Mass Effect 3. I want it NOW NOW NOW!!!

Speaking of "now", I'm now playing Blaster Master Overdrive on my Wii, and Bioshock 2 on the PC. Blaster Master Overdrive is an annoying game, mainly because you are forced to use the WiiMote to play it. I don't understand why they couldn't provide support for the classic controller. It would suit the game's controls perfectly As it is, using the WiiMote tilted sideways bothers my hand after about 30 minutes or so. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it. I should have a review for the game up on Gamer Limit in the next couple days, so look for it there if you're interested.

Well that's enough about me. The recaps are about you, so let's get on with them shall we ...
