GameLog 67

Fallout 3 (5h) - VRBones, Level 12. Massively overburdened to take out all the stuff from the long tunnel run to the citadel. Walking is sooo slooow it keeps putting me to sleep, but It's just wrong leaving stuff behind.

WoW:WotLK (5h) - BundyBear, 70 Warrior.
Big session with Sandy to end up on top of a floating zigguraut with the Lich King. There is certainly more varied storylines this time and in-game movies, but it gets a little tiring having to see the same 2-minute-long spiel 3 times in a row because there are so many people queuing up for it.

One good thing is that instead of spawning killed creatures in the same spot, they typically run in from off screen, or from a ship unloading or the like. This creates a much more believable scenario than just having someone appear out of nothing in front of you. There are still places that do the instaspawn, but I appreciate the effort in doing it right. I had that as one of my recommendations way back in Original WoW Beta. I'm sure others had requested it too, but I'd like to claim a little bit of the credit ;).

Guitar Hero: World Tour (4h) - Couple more sessions and an impromptu youth gathering to thrash through some songs. Funniest thing was watching Ben, Sam and Levi all play drums together. Got to upload the video sometime...

What was a little odd is that most of the youth didn't know more than 5 of the songs in the full playlist. I would know at least 1/2 of them enough to sing. Is the playlist intentionally for my demographic? I would have thought that teenagers were the target market.

Little Big Planet (2h) - Cameron likes it, but gets frustrated when he can't make the jumps. Going to have to make some more run-by levels like the intro.

World of Goo (1h) - The move over to the new HDD wiped my old completed game, so I'm now redoing the levels every now and then. It isn't as replayable as I would have thought, especially as I'd done most of the OCDs. I still want to work on a super tower though, so I'll keep going until I have the 500 goobers.
