It's that time of the year...

When I get to use my birthday as an excuse to take a day off of work (technically yesterday I took off - had to get my license renewed. Boy was that fun) and play some video games.

I am not going to lie - I kind of want this cake

I actually find birthdays to be rather amusing. I know a lot of people who bemoan the fact that they are 'getting older'. I like to point out that if you are not getting older, you are dead. I'll take a day with cake over that any day. Here were my birthday thoughts last year, if you care to read/re-read them.

Anyway, I figured this was as good of a time as any just to ask:

- What have you been playing?
- What are you looking forward to game-wise in the next couple of months?

I have been on something of a gaming tear over the last few weeks. I knocked out Dead Space 2 & 3, Uncharted 2 & 3, Metro: Last Light, played Leviathan: Warships, Persona 4 Golden, Madden, Fire Emblem Awakening and I just started up Batman: Arkham Asylum.

All in all, I feel like I have a lot to be thankful for going into a nice extended three day weekend here in a few days. In terms of games coming up, I do not have a ton of them on my wishlist right now. The Last of Us, which a buddy at work is buying and then going to loan me, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist looks good. Remember Me and Deadpool look like they could be interesting. Oh, and rumor has it I like football just a bit - so NCAA and Madden would be nice to acquire as well. Meanwhile, I am trying to churn through a large chunk of my backlog so I can better decide if I will be picking up a next gen system at the end of the year or not.

Thanks for stopping by - and let me know what you have been playing or are looking forward to as well!
