2K7 Game-a-Week Week #23: Ch-ch-ch-changes...

Alternately, I had considered calling this blog "The Pitfall of PC Gaming", but I liked the song reference better.

Some changes are in the wind for my late night gaming sessions, as I may not have ready access to my PC into the wee hours of the night anymore. At first I thought this was a bad thing, but I've been rolling it over in my aging gray matter and have come up with the thought that it isn't that bad. Why? Because for the most part, when i sit down to game on the PC, I'm more often than not, distracted by that 3000 pound gorilla - the internet. Many nights have been lost in aimless wandering around the endless expanse of words and pictures, while time ticks away and my games go unplayed. Conversely, if I power off my computers early and only have the consoles to play, I *gasp* actually play some games. I can't surf on a PS2, Xbox, or Cube. Even the DS, while having a basic web browser, is only really for playing (Go Pokemon Diamond!). So, while my gaming may have been focused on PC for awhile, I may have to redirect myself to the piles of console games I've built up. Hardly a tough burden to bear.

I did get to Oblivion this week, installing it and seeing where my save games were. Now, however, I've become interested in creating faces that look like celebrities using the editor. Not that it makes the game any different, but maybe a bit more fun.

Lots to do, so I have to cut it short here.
