Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below. Buckle up. This is gonna be...

Games I'm looking forward to getting back to
Posted on Tuesday, May 27 2008 @ 16:43:07 Eastern

I've been away from my 360 for nearly five days. I've had plenty to keep me occupied since last Thursday; my end of degree ball; saying goodbye to people; frantically cleaning my flat so I don't get ridiculous charges due to gobshite flatmates and so on but now I'm on the ride home and have nothing to do except read the book I've been using to entertain me in the quiet moments or type this out so I figure I may as well discuss games I'm looking forward to playing again.

GTAIV

May as well get the damn obvious out of the way. I bought this game at the midnight launch in the game store local to my uni flat and have spent upwards of 50 hours on it since then. The story is completed but there's still a hell of a lot to do; wanted missions; car exports; general carnage; the damn pigeons. God damn the pigeons, thank whatever deity you've been duped by for the map but still, 200 of the ****ers! Better make a start so I can get the helicopter.

Guitar Hero III

I bought this as a little present to myself for making it through three years of hard work. Sure I could have got a watch or some other form of jewellery or even a car or a holiday but why do that when I can indulge my dorky side and pretend to rock out with some GHIII? My reasons are better than that but I can't be bothered to share them with whoever stumbles on this blog so the aforementioned will have to do. Why do I want to get back to this game? Because it's frustratingly difficult and I owe it to my GHII grizzled hands to master this one too. I played the second game so much the walls started moving upwards and the ramped up difficulty in the third game has done nothing but increase my determination to reach the end. Aside from the boss battles though, **** the boss battles with a rusty pitchfork.

BioShock

I got this game when it was released and I loved every second of it but unfortunately (and unlike another game I'm going to mention here soon) its appeal waned drastically once I completed it. That said I knew I had to hold on to to the disk and so it's still on my shelf inside the limited edition metal case ready for me to enter the world of Rapture once again. I'll get round to it one day and I'll be a badass next time round instead of a saint but perhaps not until I've had another go on...

Mass Effect

Damn this game's good. I can't remember when I bought it but my kind friend managed to get me the limited edition version for cheap so it's yet another metal case on my shelf (along with BioShock, Halo 3 and the metal case of Assassin's Creed which I use to house Halos 1 and 2). I've completed it twice, once as a soldier and once as a biotic and I was part way through a third campaign when GTA was released and everything else including eating and sleeping was put on the side for a while. I'll have to get back to this wonderful game at some point because it's one of the few things I've ever wanted to thoroughly complete. The only others are the GTA games and Oblivion. This will get 100% completion, even if the last achievement rolls around right before I die of dysentry like they did in the Oregon Trail.
