i really wish i had about another 8-20 hours a day.

with BF3, skyrim and the new assassin's creed...ugh. i just want to do nothing but play games all week. it's torture to go to work and think about it all day.

no, i don't want to get you those system blueprints and AAO diagrams, i'd much rather be grabbing some dog tags, slashing my way through a dungeon or stabbing some people in the back.

i could only imagine the look on a client's/requestor's face if i actually were to say something like this...even if only in an email.

Most of my time goes into BF3 right now actually. Was waiting for it to come out it seems like forever. I was a HUGE fan of BF2 and 1942 back in the day.

One of the things that disappoints me about BF3 is that it lost a lot of the "communication" aspect that BF2 had. Rarely do you get a squad that works together like they should.

very true. they lost a lot of it with BFBC2 - people tended to just run off and do their own thing. when squads actually worked together it was practically unstoppable though. it's relatively similar in BF3, when you get a couple of people focused on spawning on each other and continually working toward an objective, it can be pretty easy to take over a map.

as for skyrim...i caved and bought it last night. Neutral
99 minutes in, first random crash/drop to desktop. feels very similar to fallout 3, as the developers said it would be. still don't like the inventory system.

If you (or anyone else) ever played Morrowind, how does it compare to that? I skipped Oblivion, but really liked Morrowind. I heard Oblivion changed the "feel" of things and Skyrim is even changed more than that.

unfortunately, i pretty much skipped morrowind.

oblivion was pretty good...

if you've played fallout 3, you have a pretty good idea of how skyrim play so far - they obviously don't have the aiming system (VATS) as in fallout, but it's so far pretty similar. great visuals for environment - good music, or audio in total for that matter(voice acting, lots of background stuff, etc). still pretty early in it, so i can't tell you about advanced abilities like alchemy or blacksmithing - but it appears to be simple enough to craft stuff, similarly to fallout again.

lots of stuff to pick up everywhere like fallout... we'll see how the level progression goes. i haven't spent much time tweaking anything.

80 hours in now. still haven't beaten it. probably still have 2 or 3 dozen random quests to complete, still have large swaths of the map that i haven't even gotten to yet...this game is massive.
