My week in the gaming world has actually involved little to no gaming. This month has been pretty slow as far as new games go and I’m really just waiting on the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition to release on Tuesday. I’ve been replaying a few games, mainly Borderlands 2 (with my buddy) and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. I’ve beaten both games before but on the Xbox 360. This time I have them both on the PlayStation 3 so it’s a trophy fest, plus I just love these games.
When I played Borderlands 2 previously it was split-screen with my boyfriend. Playing online with a good friend of mine has been a new experience and a fun one, making my second playthrough very exciting. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is just a great game and I love playing it so it’s been a good way to pass the time.
Other than all that I have actually been using most of my free time for other things that I find important. One of those things is writing. During the holidays I was really shifty with my posting schedule and never had much time to write anything. I had just gotten the PlayStation 4 and was working non-stop so I didn’t have much time for anything but PS4 and work. Now that my schedule has lightened up I’ve been able to get back to writing which is really great. Another thing I’ve had more time to do is read. I’m getting into comic books and having more time to read them has been really fun and beneficial. I also have a few novels in my backlog which I now have time to read.
I’ve also had more time to actually go to the gym. I’ve been meaning to go back for a while but with the holidays and the “I’d rather be on the PS4” mentality it was difficult. I’m pretty proud of myself really. I have been able to self motivate myself to go to the gym after work in the morning before work on a pretty regular basis the past couple of weeks. I feel great and since I’m back to eating healthy (it’s hard with all the Thanksgiving food and Christmas treats) everything is falling into place.
Well, that’s my week in gaming or rather not gaming. What have you been up to this past week?
Borderlands is a game I find highly enjoyable when you play with other people. I beat the first game last month and have since moved onto Borderlands 2 with my gaming buddy. I tend to call our gaming sessions our “ladies night of gaming” when we aren’t, you know, going outside, socializing, and…stuff.
I know most have since played and beaten Borderlands 2, but I’m a slow gamer and a cheap one at that. I’m lucky this same friend, who has beaten Borderlands 2 more than once on her own, decided to give me the game for my birthday. We aren’t too far into the game yet, but I can already see why many gamers call the second game way better than the first. One of those reasons why I may be liking Borderlands 2 more than the first game is the inclusion of two new playable characters, both who are female.
