As much as gamer slang has the propensity to irritate me, there are times when its usage is completely appropriate. So, with one week left to go in my month of shameless gaming, it is with great regret that I declare my efforts a 'complete fail'. My 'leet' gaming skills have let me down, and steamrolling engagements have rendered my attempts to game shamelessly utterly futile. I am disappoint.
And worse still, now I'm faced with temptation. From Dust and Bastion have fallen into my lap - both games I'm very keen to get started on. The tail end of July has provided me with the temptations I was sure I wouldn't have to deal with. The whole reason Trjn wisely chose July as the month for Shameless Gaming was because of the dearth of new releases. I had forgotten all about these two downloadable titles and now it's becoming increasingly difficult to say no.
I had previously joked about Shameless Gaming becoming a chore, but the truth is, once I pushed through the barrier, and began playing games I had previously ignored, I had a huge amount of fun. Particularly with Bulletstorm, a game that plenty ignored. I found a game that was innovative and fun. Now, for the first time, aching to play Bastion and From Dust, I'm really feeling the pain.
Still, I have only one week left, and I'm committed to knocking at least two games off my list. Bulletstorm is close to being finished, as is Batman: Arkham Asylum.
One more week. One more week!
