I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

10 Games That Will Ruin Your Valentine's Day

Posted on Friday, February 14 @ 09:00:00 Eastern by ryanbates
Oh, l'amour...
 
It's the one emotion that we can't live without in some form or another. Whether it be finding one's soulmate, the warm glow of being surrounded by family, the laughter and energy of friends, or a solo night fueled by Jack Daniels and Vaseline, there is nothing more special than being surrounded by love. Some things may be less messy, but nothing more special.
 
And when you love someone, oftentimes that love can be shared by common activities. How great does it feel when that special someone bonds with you in one of your hobbies? Your favorite activity with your favorite person... it's the stuff that dreams are made of.

Unless your favorite activity is gaming. Then you may be walking in a minefield.
 
You see, as gamers, not only do we have a need for love, but we have a mean competitive streak. Missions do not simply sit as “failed"; we must “accomplish” them. Completing a game isn't enough; we must 100% them. And when it comes to local multiplayer, relationships head right out the door once certain games are turned on.
 
And when we play with that special someone, that could lead to a lot less nookie.
 
So, if love is in the air for you this Valentine's Day in some form or another, you may want to put off playing any of the games on this list, guaranteed to wreck the mood. Or play them, but be sure to stock up on Jack and Vaseline.
