Journal bildstorm's Journal: Playing Games

Been playing a fair number of games in the past few months. Theoretically because I'm working now I should be able to afford more games, but I play less often now, and with returning to school coming in the spring, well, gaming may get fairly well held up.

Anyway, I can break my gaming down into three categories:

Pen-and-paper - Been trying to play in three campaigns. Only successfully managed to get to one recently, the other not recently, and the third seems to be dead-in-the-water. Not a good sign. The one I've gotten to semi-recently is 3rd Edition D&D, the other one is 2nd Edition AD&D, and the dying one is 3rd Edition. I figure it's less the game and more the person running the game that determines success.

Consoles - Got a GameCube. Got it with Super Mario Sunshine, which, while fun, is not spectacular and reminds me of the old SMB games, excpet harder and on crack. Madden 2004, however, rocks. I love the GameCube controller.

PC Games - Cycled through a number over the summer, now playing Rise of Nations and occasionally Sims Superstar.
