Welp, Merry Christmas!

I plan to try to get in on some GoW MP tonight.  Might be slim pickings if you all are traveling.  I'm gonna try to scale back my online time with this game as I'm beginning to get a little haggard due to lack of sleep.

I'll be playing some Elite Beat Agents (what a great time this game is).

Also, might continue my adventures in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrows.

Possibly some Dead Rising.

Lastly, I'm hoping Battle for Middle Earth II arrives so that I can fire that up.

Merry Christmas!

Metal Gear Portable Ops for now.  But when Christmas Eve comes, I'll be opening up my Wii and after that it will be pretty much Zelda Twilight Princess almost nonstop.  Though, I suppose I'll probably put in Wii Sports for family enjoyment.

My weekend Started Yesterday and doesn't end till next Thursday!

I played and finished Raving Rabbids yesterday morning, spent the day with the Pops, and played a couple of hours of FFXII

As for the rest of the weekend, I am going to try and grab a little it of time in between wrapping presents, building other presents and cleaning up a little, as well as spending time with the extended family.

My vacation started yesterday too.  I kicked it off by watching the miniseries and first episode of BS:G Season 1.  (It was OK, but I have major reservations about a serious reality flaw.)  Played some NWN2 as well.  Will get more NWN2, and maybe some Gothic 3.

Don't know when I'll get to play as I work in retail and I have to work all day on Saturday and probably some part of Christmas Eve.

If I do get any real playtime in, I'm going to try and get back to Oblivion on the 360 and play the Nights of the Nine.  I also want to go back and play Gears of War some more and maybe some Call of Duty 3.  Lastly, I really want to find some time to get back to my DS and play Castlevania Portrait of Ruin and Final Fantasy III.

I'm off from today until Jan 2.   icon_biggrin 

Going to try one more time to get into Neverwinter Nights II.  I don't think it's going to happen (this is my third try, and someone about it just rubs me wrong), so I think I'm going to head out and pick up Xenosaga III, FF III, and Elite Beat Agents with the $100 in gift cards I got yesterday.  I'll also be playing through the new Sam & Max on Gametap.

Nope.  I played it twice, and ended up quitting both times around the same spot (8'ish hours in).  From what I've heard, X3 does a pretty good job of summarizing the plot stuff.  Now if I can just track down a copy of the game, it's really tough to find!

Definitely read a summary or download some of the story scenes (I think I linked a site in the XS3 impressions thread).  The game does summarize things a bit but probably not to the extent that a good FAQ would.

Gothic 3 and Rainbow Six Vegas for me this weekend (when not working, stupid last minute holiday stuff).  Maybe some NWN2 as well.  Oh, and I'm going to try and finish Call of Duty 3.

I'll be playing a bunch more of Saints Row.  I'm already sitting at 20x Respect bar from doing so many activities (finally figured out to just crash my car for the insurance frauds), so I think I'm going back to finish the other two storylines and then a few more of the extra activities just because they're fun.

Fired up The Thing again last night as part of the "Backlog Reduction Strategery of 2006" plan and burned through the first few chapters. I have to knock it out ASAP because if I get a few games on Monday then the backlog gets ballooned back up again. It would be helpful were I not stuck in the office right now.

Tough weekend, really busy, at relatives and what not.  But I plan to get in some Railroads with the new patch and holiday scenario.  Also I definately want to partake it finishing a few The Guild 2 games we haven't sealed up yet.  Flat Out 2 probably will come out for a bit, then maybe some 1701 A.D. or something.

Also in a big change, I have been rather hooked on Zelda Twilight Princess (GameCube) during my late night trysts with it when the kids are sleeping as it is one of their Christmas gifts.  I want to get more of that in.

Then on Christmas day, it will be *ALL* PS2 with a shit ton of games to play baby!

I'm looking forward to trying out Wii sports and Madden on the Wii on Monday when I finally get to open the damn thing !!!

Also going to try to get in some GoW multiplayer, plus finish Call of Duty 3 and Killzone Liberation.

On the PC I might finally try out DoW Dark Crusade which I bought weeks ago but still haven't installed.

Well, my oldest brother asked that I bring Guitar Hero 1 and 2 down to the house in Florida we rented for the week (he played it for a couple of hours over Thanksgiving). For his 2 year old daughter, he said. Yeah, right.  Roll Eyes   icon_wink

So I guess I'll be playing that this week.

Hell yeah!  Best of all, I added Devil May Cry Collectors set to the list at the last minute.  I got a $30.00 Circuit City gift card in the mail from someone, and went and picked that up for me... Err... The kids...  ninja  $29 for those three games in a boxed set was hard to resist.

If I get any console playtime, it'll be Final Fantasy XII for me, or maybe a little bit of Atelier Marie on the Dreamcast.  Or FFTA.

I might crack open Call of Duty 2 for the PC, but I have a strong urge to fire up Baldur's Gate and finally get out of Nashkel.  I've only had the stupid game for...what, 8 years now?

 I will be working my way into Rogue Spear (I'm playing through every PC version and expansion of Rainbow Six - I actually need to go back and finish of the last 3 missions of Eagle Watch too).  I have a feeling I will be gaining a few new console titles too this weekend and I'll have to see if I can resist taking them for a spin since I have so many other console games is various states of completion.
