I realize that things have been pretty quiet lately. Things have been really busy on my end and I haven't had much of a chance to write updates. The newest entry will be posted late next week.
In case you were wondering, my play through of ME2 is honestly taking so very very very long because of one thing. As much as I like Meriel, the writing part of my brain has not recovered from the "burned out" phase it entered when graduate work came to a close. It is on the mend though, and trust me when I say that it is well time this game was over.
ME2, however, is not the only thing I've been playing (or not playing ... since ME2 progresses as Meriel's journal does). The first part of this year GOG had a number of very good sales on adventure titles, and I have been messing with a number of those. I also fooled around with Fallout 3 and a number of PS2 titles (it is rather embarrassing to admit that Trivial Pursuit was a major time sink a few weeks back). I am rather eager to finally install Jade Empire, and to begin making a major dent in that GOG shelf of mine. With Two Worlds, Arx Fatalis, Nox, and a number of other titles calling my name I'm ready to put this chapter behind me. Odds are that the division of Meriel's journal entries in the next months will reflect this.
See you then!
