I picked up Starcraft with Brood War in a preowned games store today, I think it's about the forth time I've bought that game. It's so damn good!

I've been thinking of starting STALKER again with the Oblivion Lost mod. I fucking love that rough masterpiece. If anyone wants me, I'll be singing Russian folk songs around a camp-fire with heavily armed men playing guitar.

You question whether or not I want the game? Oh contrare... I do want... I download, play, store, delete. Just like everyone else. I tend to get my games from places other than Steam, however, thats all.

On a side note, does anyone know of a good place for educational games? Grades 2-4? Free? Thanks!
Saying I'm 'obviously shilling' for Valve because I link to their deals (among others) sounds pretty irrational to me, you irrationally irrational man who is irrational. Irrational.

Pretty fun game, real time RPG that looks pretty and just just time sinking hack and slash for the most part, but still fun to play.

Playing the game however has reminded me of an annoying trend in games recently. I like long epic game, thus enjoying RPGs and what not and I used to always be very happy when I seen a game had two or more discs because it would mean many hours of fun but now days when a game has a few discs it gets my hopes up and I am always let down at how long they are, the focus on super high graphics seems to leave games feeling less full, the space that could have been used for hidden dungeons or side quests now seems to be spend making the games look pretty.

Maby its just me getting older but did 2 disc games always only boast about a 15-20 hour play time? and that's not speeding through the game, that's me playing leisurely through, seeing all the sights and trying not to miss anything.
What really annoys me is when games (mostly RPGs and MMOs) stretch themselves out to artificiality extend the play time - density of a world is more important than length penis joke

Haha, that's what Peggle does, think of those poor people who play Peggle inside World of Warcraft.

Oh and Stalin vs Martians is 60% off on steam. Buy it to annoy that douche bag unrealrob. Seriously, he said 'Oh contrare'.

I'm off to bed, I now have Russian music in my head.
