Games! Games everywhere!

Over the last few months I’ve been picking up games during Steam sales. Some of them are just to good to pass up. The great thing is I’ve gotten a ton of games for $10 or under each. The bad thing is I now have a bunch of games I still haven’t had time to play.

  1. FTL
  2. Total War: Shogun 2
  3. Assassins Creed
  4. Assassins Creed II
  5. Command and Conquer
  6. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  7. Batman: Arkham City

I did start up Assassin’s Creed but the controls were weird and I didn’t feel like trying to learn them. Plus it did not like my dual monitor set up. Easy thing to overcome but I haven’t.

In the area of non-computer games, over the last year we’ve also picked up a few board games that we have either never played or only done once. Its hard to get people together for game nights unfortunately.

  1. Last Night on Earth
  2. Star Fluxx
  3. Constantinopolis
  4. Ventura
  5. Star Trek Catan

Now, many of those we picked up more recently as part of Fantasy Flights Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.

Lest you think its only our gaming that is suffering from in attention, we’re also behind on TV. I queued up a number of shows that we watch to be auto-purchased on Amazon, since that’s how we get our TV. And that works out great in one respect, we can watch them whenever. But, we’re getting so far behind, it might be time to switch to just waiting another year for them to show up on Netflix.

When I do get around to the video games, any suggestions on which one to start with?

    I haven’t played most of them. Is C&C the original? If so, that is a fun RTS that I spent (too?) many hours playing. The Arkham games are really fun, too. I have them on Xbox, so can’t say how they are on a computer.

      It’s the latest one, I forget what it was called, Tiberium Twilight or something? I enjoyed the original and Red Alert back in the day. Trying to get games going “online” when you had to use the phone line to connect AND work out a game with friends but before anyone had cell phones. That was fun.

    Haven’t played Arkham Asylum, but Arkham City is freaking amazing. I can not say enough great things about the game. It really makes you feel like you are Batman. I also have them on Xbox, but I’m sure they are still great on the computer.
