It's been a long time since I had game-fever. Perhaps it's my Masters program wearing down, or just the change from summer to fall, but I'm really itching for something new to play. I hear Borderlands is one hell of a game, Torchlight has action RPG fans (like me) all abuzz for something new to play, and Pete won't stop making me drool over Dragon Age. But all of these games come out next week or even later. So what do I do until next Monday/Tuesday when I can get my hands on the first two?
I played a little Left 4 Dead last night. I usually don't play it online, as I prefer to do split-screen with my friends when they're over at my place. So I played single-player last night, and while it's fun... it's just not the same as when you have your best mates there screaming and laughing with you. The new (to me anyway) campaign is a lot of fun though. Makes me want the sequel more.
I also played a little FATE on my laptop. A fun Diablo-clone, but missing something I can't quite put my finger on... scratch that. I know what I'm missing, the Skill Trees. FATE has everything an action-RPG should have except that. So I'm leveling, getting new gear, but I don't really care about leveling because I don't get shiny new ways to make things go splat. This is a problem that Torchlight won't have, but hey... that game's still five days away.
The good news is I have homework and stuff to do for TTH this weekend, as well as plenty of other plans over the next few days. I should be killing things in Borderlands and Torchlight before I know it.
