:lol:
In my defense, most of that was acquired when I was at college, so £15 a month to love film got me as many games as I could get through and between that, bus fares to Edinburgh and lunches for the week I couldn't afford to go out anywhere :P
Though I still don't go out all that much unless I'm hassled :lol:

Next highest after Mike on my friends list is 96000, but even that score has been debunked because him and a mate both used the same username for a while when they were living together until he got his own name. Mine is steadily gaining.

Stay strong, Alex.

Dota2's out of beta on Linux. :D

Still too scared to play with real people though. Bots are hard enough. T_T

Skyward Sword. I don't own the Wii that I am using so its not coming with me when I move out. Thus, if I don't complete it in the next 9 days I lose the opportunity to do so until I get a Wii.

To be honest, with companions like Navi in the games history I have grown quite adept to ignoring them. Which is why I get stuck so often.

Batteries in the controller are dead and I have no AA batteries in the house. Fml. Assassins Creed 2 it is then.

The ending was slightly disappointing, my Sniper took out the last boss in one turn as I got two crits :lol:. Granted it was on normal difficulty though.

Try this one, UFO: Alien Invasion. Free fan based remake, that is updated & added to quite regularly.

Oh god.


Just lost another hour and 49 turns to Civ 5.

I do not have the willpower for this game.
