Currently watching the EA presentation at E3. The new Simcity may yet draw me back, but I'm still not sure (and my current system probably couldn't handle it). Anyway, Madden didn't look bad. Might be the first new Madden I've bought in a few years.

These conferences have been boring so far. Nintendo's press conference will blow everyone away because they'll probably show off games that aren't FPS's and have a color palette with green in it.

That was a good one. There was a surprisingly good book made from it, too. I have it on audio somewhere.  Smiley

One of the best games ever. Better than Goldeneye.

I can't tell you how many hours I put into the Combat Simulator. Wait it was like 58days or something so 1392 hours.

One of my bragging rights is unlocking the Pugilist co-op sim in the Solo Missions without any cheats. Let me tell you, I only completed it with a second to spare.

I think it was worse than doing the speedrun on Goldeneye's Facility to unlock whatever cheat it was.

Sim City? I have to get that. I have so many nostalgic moments with Sim City; it reminds me of the early 2000s back in the day.

You guys are making me feel old  Cheesy  My first gaming memory was asking for a Nintendo for my birthday c. 1987, and being given an Atari instead. I suppose I wouldn't trade my memories of dig dug, pole position, the original mario, the 74 different spaceship related games, etc. for anything though.

Well, there was always Starfox ('93) and such, but I wasn't really into it then.

Hmm, I take that back. I did get a Nintendo in '90... but yeah, you're old.

Beat the main story in Uprising. All that's left is the boss rush (made it about half way through. I'm not very good at dodging so I'm pretty much high and dry without constant healing) and most of the achievements (which I don't care about).

On Bowser's Inside Story, I'm stuck on the train boss. I wonder if using a can of air would work (and not ruin my 3DS at the same time).

Might start a new file on Pokemon Soulsilver. I've just got too much grinding to do to get past the Elite Four thanks to not distributing my team very evenly in the early game.

Still need to finish Ocarina of Time 3D, haven't touched it in months.

If I ever get my Wii or PS2 hooked up again, I'll reassess things.

I should be playing the new Civ expansion right now. Except that their most recent patch completely screwed me over. So why bother? Game was the worst in the series anyway. Yes, I'm bitter.  angel

So I'm playing Skyrim again, waiting a month or so for the Dawnguard expansion to be released on PS3. I also need to get that game Journey soon, I heard it's outstanding.

If it makes you feel any better, since last November I've played over 330 hours in the game, and I should reach 400 hours even before I get the Dawnguard expansion next month  Cool

From what I saw they look more like big winged demon type monsters than... well... whatever that guy in twilight is supposed to be.
