    Aside from brief forays into UO to unwind, Steam says it best:
    :(

    I'm a PHP/CSS/HTML learning machine.

    This title looks amazing. Really want to play it, but my computer won't run it. Planning to buy myself a computer for Christmas, though, and BF3 is the first game on my wish list thereafter.

    Pretty cool that WoW subscribers will get Diablo3 for free. Swifty seemed pretty impressed with the new expansion.

    I dont play WoW but I dont understand some of the hate on stratics from some WoW players about the new expansion. Hope you enjoy Mists of Pandaria when it comes out :)

    I wish I would of saved that article I had came across about Mists of Pandaria. In the article they stated that some ex dreamwork employees that had worked on Kung Fu Panda was working with Blizzard on the expansion. Not sure if it's all true but was pretty interesting read.

    I've also been playing a game called Dark Souls on my Xbox360 (it's a console exclusive) and it's been an absolute thrill ride from the moment I started. It's a Fantasy RPG game set in a dying world that has fallen siege to various demons, beasts, and the undead. You play the role of a hollowed being (with a wide range of class selections from theif to sorcerer) who hasn't yet completely lost their sanity and must fight to keep the small amount of humanity they have left. Your quest takes you through fortresses, dungeons, cities, and forests where you collect souls, weapons, armor, and items that make you more powerful as you progress.

    The fun of the game is never knowing what (or who) is lurking around the next corner as you make your way through the world. Nothing about this game is easy and dying is inevitable. So if you've gotten used to all the easy, simplistic, boring games that you can yawn your way through then you can just skip this one. But if you're up for a real challenge that includes epic boss battles and online multiplayer co op and PvP (players can invade the worlds of other players in search of items and also to attack members of opposing clans) then this game is awesome.

    I'm on a Combat Arms fast until they release a patch to repair the client stability issues. In the meantime, I have been playing Team Fortress 2.

    Team Fortress 2 is a good game :p

    Though SW:TOR is what I'm waiting for.
    That and my new laptop to arrive.

    I've really been getting into it. Even purchased a few items. I think my favorite character to play is a scout in special delivery garb, but I tend to do best with a sniper. Also starting to get the hang of using my pyro's air blast to keep enemies floating, while setting them alight.

    I picked up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on sale a couple days ago not expecting much and have been pleasantly surprised so far. I felt the franchise had gone too far into the ridiculous with Modern War 2 and Black Ops and thought this game would just be more of the same or worse. But I have to admit I am impressed by the changes they've made, which I feel are major improvements to everything that has gone wrong with Call of Duty. Hear me out though, this isn't full on redemption for those who have the same feelings about Call of Duty, but it is some moves in a different direction from where the franchise has been going and I feel the multiplayer gameplay has seen some major improvements into the realm of reasonsable gameplay in this edition. I'm still a bigger fan of DICE's Battlefield franchise at this point, even with all the bugs it includes. However, I'm glad CoD made some changes for the better rather than for the worse as has been their most recent trend.
