Finally finished Fallout: New Vegas, after... how long? I started a new game a couple of weeks ago and managed to play through the whole game, though, so I guess I'm making up for lost time. It was a lot of fun - I did all the expansions, ended up siding NCR. I'd like to replay and get all the endings at some point, though.

Planning on playing Mass Effect 2 next. Lord knows I won't finish it in time for ME3's launch, but I'll get there eventually.

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.

My paid account on LJ expired a few days ago. I am less distressed than I thought I would be about the loss of icons, so I suppose that's something. I only really go there to comment on communities and read journals that haven't moved to DW, so I guess that's it.

Uni starts next week. The university have been really pathetic about getting the timetables up - everyone is allocated into different groups, and you derive your timetable from that. The groups were only released a couple of days ago. This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't also the case for people who have clinicals - ie, people only found out a couple of days ago where they were going to be working for the next few months. It doesn't affect me, but I feel sorry for them.

I've been kinda out of it for the last few days and have just been blobbing out on the couch. Mostly been playing Fallout: New Vegas. I forgot how good this game is - maybe I was just playing it wrong the first time, but it's way more fun now. Spent most of yesterday running around doing odd jobs for the NCR, then capped it off by wiping out everyone in one of the casinos. Good times.

Also been watching a bit of anime. Specifically, the Persona 4 anime, Tiger & Bunny, and No 6. Enjoying all of them - P4 a bit less so, but I haven't seen much of it so I'm hoping it'll kick into gear later on. It's good for novelty, at least.

Decided to pre-order Mass Effect 3, just in case I do get really into it and end up kicking myself for not doing so earlier. Besides, the collector's edition DLC looks pretty solid. Hopefully I actually like it.

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
