I posted a couple of weeks ago about what I was up to in terms of gaming. I have made some progress, but I ended jumping into two other games, one I casually play and one I didn’t try before.
I have logged a few more hours in Dungeon Siege. While the graphics look their age, I have a lot of fun with it. I used to play countless hours of Torchlight, so this type of games are fun to play. And I can’t help it, I enjoy a female protagonist.
The other RPG game I started has a male one though. I am not against playing a male character, but it really takes a compelling universe for me to have fun with it. It is a bit weird because I have no problem watching a movie/reading a book with a male lead. I am not exactly sure why it is so different with a video game, especially since I even write roleplaying male characters for the past years!
Anyway, this other game is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition, which I got from a friend. So far, I enjoy the gameplay a lot, though I am still very early in the game. The controls are good and wielding a lightsaber and using Force powers never get old. The only Star Wars game that made me love using blasters was The Old Republic.
To add to this, I also have my achiever side waking up and I have been spending time on Bejeweled 3 again. I was missing three Steam Achievements. I got one of them but the last two are annoying me for so far, they still escape my grasp! I will get them though. One day.
I also still want to pick up Mass Effect 2 again, because I was in love with the game, but I just haven’t been in the mood to do it. I have been listening to soundtracks from the game trilogy a lot though. It seems to make my writing muses extremely happy.
