I know it's not something that anyone else on my flist is into, but I'm super-excited about the V20 Companion Deluxe Edition. Not even so much for the thing itself -not actually a huge Vampire fan-, but for the hope that White Wolf and other game companies might seriously start looking at Kickstarter and the like as a payment and distribution model. Everyone and their mother knows about the Order of the Stick and DoubleFine successes, so I really hope it's something that can extend to the tabletop RPG market too.

Uni has started, and it's been pretty good so far. I've met the other members of my group (lots of groupwork) and they all seem nice. The work is okay for the most part too - kinda boring first year stuff, but nothing too challenging, thankfully. I'm cautiously optimistic about the semester!

ummmm not much else to say. I'm pretty much obsessed with Fallout: New Vegas and Battlestar Galactica right now, though I'm almost finished the former. Planning to move on to Mass Effect 2 afterwards, as I preordered 3 in the end. Anyone else into ME? I played the first one and didn't like it that much, but I've been told the gameplay gets a lot better in 2, and I enjoyed the demo of 3 a lot.

Just tried out the demo of Mass Effect 3. My hopes for it weren't especially high, given that I played the first few hours of the first game and found it way too clunky to be enjoyable, but I actually really liked what I playe of 3's demo! So much that I stopped playing after the first section, actually, as I don't want to be spoiled. Not sure if I'll pre-order and pick it up at launch or wait a bit. Might wait, as I'd like to at least try ME2 first.

I've also restarted a new game on Fallout: New Vegas and I'm enjoying it heaps. A lot more the second time than the first time, actually! I stopped playing it because I found Caesar's Legion to be unbearably stupid bad guys in terms of sheer puppy-raping. I'm just arsing around, so I'm only up to Novac, but it's fun so far. I don't actually talk about it much for whatever reason, but Fallout 3 is probably one of my favourite video games ever, so originally I was down on NV for the crime of not being 3. I'm now enjoying it on its own merits.

I think I mentioned this earlier, but I've been watching Battlestar Galactica. I'm more of the way through the second season, and omg it's great fun. I love all the characters so much even when they're being total shits to each other (which is like all the time wtf) and argh I wish I'd checked it out years ago. It's one of those shows where I hype backlashed against it really strongly and took a set against it for no good reason. Like Sherlock. Fuck, I hope this doesn't mean I should watch Sherlock.

Fiance has discovered that he can hook World of Warcraft up to our TV on his new laptop (formerly my Pro). I am in a sad place because I do not currently have a computer that will run World of Warcraft. goddammit those herbs aren't gonna farm themselves! Maybe I'm just bitter because he's playing in glorious 50-inch HD... in Hellfire Peninsula. DX

Have mainly been replaying Final Fantasy X and watching Battlestar Galactica for the first time (late to fandom lol). Realised that Auron and Papa Adama (as opposed to Baby Adama) actually look a lot alike. Cannot unsee.

We had our first appointment with the obstetrician yesterday, which was overall pretty good. It took forever, but they gave us a bunch of goodies, and everyone was really nice. We had to get a couple of blood tests done to see if we were carriers for some disorders, but apparently that's routine, so I'm not too worried. If something like that did come up, we'd handle it, but there's no point in getting freaked out about it prematurely!

On the negative side, my stomach is getting really noticeably big and I feel really crappy and self-conscious :/ Especially since I'm too sick/drained all the time to exercise very much.

Watching Theo play El Shaddai right now, as he's in a bit of a snit with Skyrim, something to do with a skeleton. It's amazingly pretty - I've never seen anything quite like it. I actually really want to show it to my dad, but he's still away overseas.
