I'm bored.

Bored of the games I have, bored of the games I'm finding to fill the boredom.

I blame crunch month. 6 top notch games all in the space of a month festooned my PC and PS3 and the desire to play as fast a possible to clear space for the next game was incredible. I don't think I've been through a month like that before. Now it's over, I'm wondering if the Play & Expunge mechanic is still in my system. With no new games left and nothing on the horizon I'm wondering if I've cleared space in my calendar for a game that doesn't exist.

Usually when I get bored looking at the row of game icons it's time to add another, however I'd really like to get back to finishing Fallout, or pick up the FM season that's ready to go, or make a new LBP level. Instead I find myself downloading a new angband variant, or old indie games, or stuffing about on Kongregate.

Hopefully I'll get the GTX 260 on Saturday, and that will be the spark to get back into FC2 or Fallout. I'm also hoping to get some games developed while down at andrew's place, but the schedule is looking pretty full already. That would be the most effective venting of boredom though. Make a game yourself.
