Hello once again my darlings. It's a shame I have to constantly share my love with you all on Mondays of all days, but let's just see this as a nice way to start the week, and to get prepped for the weekend. <3
Gaming wise things have been interesting. I'm officially "done" with LEGO Batman. I was hoping to play it to 100% completion, but I just couldn't bring myself to. The biggest disappointment was oddly enough that they just put too much stuff in it. Too many different abilities, too many obscure puzzle solutions, too many power ups that may be cool but you won't unlock until the end of the game when it won't matter. Just... too much. I'm hoping to be able to trade it in for a copy of LEGO Start Wars: TCS. Sure it's simpler, but it was more fun. Since stopping that I've started Assassin's Creed, and after 3 of the 9 assassinations I can see where people were coming from when they said it gets repetitive. I'll post more thoughts after I've made more progress.
I also got a few packages in the mail over the last week, as part of the Dtoid amazing game trading forum of justice
! The first was from Wedge which game on Friday, and the second from Funktastic came today. I'm still waiting on Dyson's package, and when I do I'll share just what I got. In the meantime you all should go to the forums and check out what people have to offer. :)

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
