TITAN QUEST!!  

This game is great fun...just the thing I needed.  So far I've put in just over 9 hours into this one (according to the character screen) and I'm still in Greece so things are looking good for living up to the 30-40 hour campaign time.  Of course I've been doing all the side quests and exploring everything, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I've been trying to hold off on Titan Quest, but I may cave and pick it up tomorrow.  If so, I'll be playing that.  
Otherwise I'll fire up some Diablo and watch some DVDs or maybe catch a movie at the theater.  Nothing too exciting.

The new Preston & Child book finally came in at the library, so I'll be reading "Book of the Dead" and playing FFI on my GBA.  Finally got around to installing Freedom Force on my PC, so I'll be trying that too.

Titan Quest, most definitely. That game has me like the Diablo series did so long ago.

I also might be playing the all fun "go find a new cat" game. Nets a cute, cuddly animal as a reward. biggrin

Not a damn thing this weekend.  BUT...

My new PC is being delivered on Friday, so I took July 7-16 off and will be doing nothing but gaming for over a week straight.  Amazingly, I even got Mrs. Gratch to let me!  Have already picked up:

-  Oblivion
-  Quake IV
-  Age of Empires III
-  Seriously considering grabbing Titan Quest

I love having 12 days off I have to use or lose by August 15th.  smile

Today is my last day of work at my old job.  I have been with this restaurant for three years now.  playing this weekend.  Animal crossing:wild World.  MLB 06 The Show, some World of Warcraft.  Monday is Laundary, take the bottles back, turn my change jar into paper money.  Do the dishes.  Start to pack.  July 4th, freedom Hill Fireworks show.  July 5th, get my paycheck in the morning from the old job, then head up north to Indian River.  Which is about 15 miles south of the tip of the lower part of michigan.  Should be about a 4-5 hour drive.  me and the Gf will be gone up there till the 9th.  My dad is going with his lady friend, and my brother and his wife.  Then we return on july 9th.  July 10th is the first day of my new job, and then off to Ann Arbor Michigan that night to see VNV nation do a Dj set at a small bar.

Sometime I would really like to see Pirate of the Carribean when we get back as well.smile

Still working my way through HoMM V.

I also picked up Monster Hunter for my portable gaming fix.  My DS is travelling cross-country in the hands of a friend of mine who begged and begged to borrow it for the trip.  Finally, I gave in.

Gaming got some multiplayer Titan Quest on tap, in addition to some Call of Duty 2 on my server (DM, 35 kill limit, 70.86.100.53:28960)

On the non gaming front, chores...freaking ants all over the place, and I'm fighting them off. Trying to figure out where the hell they are coming in. Can't be helped as I have two cats and the ants love the cat food. The war continues, there can be only one victor, if you don't hear back from me, they won.

Perhaps some TQ if I pick it up.  Really want it for some reason.

Aside from that, several PSP games and perhaps getting back into Radiata Stories.

Well, that settles that.  Airlink101 does not follow the IEEE 802 standards as their product (a "Super G" Access Point) is not fully backwards compatable with standard G routers.  In addition, they say that they support WPA on the box, but in reality they only support WEP.  Guess this hunk of crap is going back tomorrow.

My addiction to Animal Crossing on both the GC and DS has grown, so I'm giving those a lot of my time this weekend (I'm fudging the date on my GC version so I can play more). Otherwise, it's Titan Quest on the PC and Trace Memory on the DS.

Phoenix Wright arrived on Friday and I have been having a blast with that.  I'm on what I guess is the final third of case 2.  Brilliant!

I've also started up DQ VIII on the PS2. So far so good.

Finally, I'm doing my brain training.  My brain age is my actual age so that show marked progress.  Don't know if I'm smart enough to get down to 20 though...
