I'm pretty excited to play some more Halo tonight. Mrs. Tourist will be out and about so I get a few hours of guilt-free video game time!

Dishonored is pretty cool so far. I'm going to say I'm 25% of the way in. A little Assassin's Creed-y.

Just started playing Far Cry 3 as well. Major fun...approached a pirate with the intention of sniping them from across a sea inlet except to be jumped on by a tiger, beat it off and then sprinted forward where I am spotted by said pirates who come running out of their base to fire on me, two are taken out by the tiger who followed me. One of the pirates then starts throwing molotovs at me and the tiger, the bush grass is now on fire as well as part of the base. I manage to disable the alarm, but didn't realise the tiger had finished off most of the pirates and it then proceeds to rip me a new one.

The second time around went a bit smoother, killed the nearby tiger first and just started lobbing grenades into the base and picked the pirates off as they tried to get to the alarm to call for backup.

And people wonder why I still love video games.

I feel bad for adults who liked video games when they were younger and have stopped because they don't feel like they should still be playing them because they're grown up. Because holy hell, they're as fun as they ever were.

Not only that, some of the experiences and stories rival what they're getting on TV or in movies.

LJT, make an effort to pick up the collectibles (buy the maps), as you can unlock fancy unique weapons if you get enough. I unlocked a crazy .50 cal sniper riflle that I can 1 shot bears and tigers with. Pretty sweet.

Winter break = fighting over the PS3. Unfortunately, Ashley's vice is Skyrim, so I lose. You get hooked on that shit bad and it doesn't let go.

Took me about 5 hours to get to 53% in Uncharted. That was slightly disappointing. Great game though.

GTA = selling that cocaine then killing the dealer you just sold it to then using the cocaine then killing pedestrians that witnessed this then attacking the cops that come to arrest you then driving your car onto a ramp, off the ramp, onto some train tracks, whereupon you drive on the tracks at top speed and then drive off of the tracks and land on a building's rooftop, where you take out your sniper rifle and set up shop, waiting for a police helicopter to show up so you can snipe the police snipers.

He had such an unfair advantage in that game. It was like he was playing his biography. Thank goodness he was on our side. While typing that I thought of us taking over and defending that fort, just unleashing cannon ball after cannon ball at attackers and started cracking up.

I like how we would do it to the point of getting bored, then eventually turn the cannon balls against each other.
