Hello all! If you didn't read the recap for Monday you might be wondering why I'm doing a Friday recap. No big deal really, just Garison and I switched days for this week. Sorry that it's on Saturday morning and not Friday night, but you know how Friday nights can be. ;)
Fairly interesting few weeks gaming wise. I traded in CoD4... again... and picked up Demigod. Completely agree with the review... great multiplayer game which is unfortunately hampered by the shitty Impulse service and inability to be successfully run through Steam. Honestly... if you're going to make a competitor to Steam at LEAST make it as good as Steam. Have more manageable friends list, ingame voice chat, instant messaging. I might not mind all this as much if I could run it through Steam, however while you technically can the Steam overlay doesn't work, which defeats the whole purpose.
Aside from that, I actually blogged
again, talking about some trades I made recently through the Dtoid trading forum. I do have some more things I'd like to trade though, so I'll be making a new thread maybe today... assuming I can tear myself away from napping/video games.
Now if you'll excuse me, instead of catching up on sleep like I should be, I have some TF2 unlocks to get... Fucking Valve and their bullshit unlock systems...

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.
