Everyone that has read just a few entries here knows I play a lot of games (points over to his ‘gamercard’). Most of the time you can find me logged into EVE Online or Champions Online. Those MMO’s have a tendency of sucking away most of my free time but I do spend quite a bit of time on my Xbox 360. Recently I have played Batman: Arkham Asylum and Halo 3: ODST. Both were interesting and well designed but have not held my interest very well. Halo was great in Co-Op mode and Batman, even though it is very faithful to the Batman mythos and is one of the best DC superhero games ever (that isn’t saying much, though), just did not hold my interest. Kicking the heads of bad guys in over and over just to get to the next boss battle has become blase. The Bat-gadgets are neat but they just seem to be more of ‘this’ and extra hit points, nothing to really strive for.
Many many many moons ago, when I had a lot more time, and a lot less money… I used to play a table top game. I know that is a complete shock to many of you! This game was Blood Bowl from the minds of Games Workshop. Blood Bowl was basically really really violent (American) Football. I loved playing it over and over again, and in the 90′s there was a PC version ‘released’, and that is about all I would say about it. I think I played it once… maybe twice, and back then it was a chunk of change to drop for a PC Game.
Well this month we will see the return of Blood Bowl to the PC (and to the Xbox and DS later in the fall). Yes, I have pre-ordered the digital download… and all projections look good. But so did all the previews for Episode I and we know how THAT turned out!
Oh, for those that care… I will be playing Chaos.
