State of Gaming in the Empire 2012

I’ll be hitting 35,000 gamerscore on Xbox very soon and so decided it was a good time for an update on the state of gaming in the Empire. Time for gaming is short between work, spring/summer weather, and being fucked over by a world corporatocracy but we still manage to get our time in. I’ve already finished Skyrim, of course.

As usual, most of the gaming is taking place on the Xbox 360 or the Mac. Mac is still hurting for gaming, but a teeny bit of progress is made each year and mobile devices are driving this hard as well. Steam has been huge for the platform and the App store is starting to help too. Time to upgrade the old video card and gaming peripherals methinks!

Games we are currently playing:

  • Diablo III (Mac OS X)
  • Civilization V (Mac OS X)
  • Max Payne 3 (Xbox 360)
  • GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony (Xbox 360)
  • Forza 4 (Xbox 360)
  • NHL 12 (Xbox 360)
  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Xbox 360)
  • You Don’t Know Jack (Xbox 360)

Games (and expansions) we can’t fucking wait to play:

  • Civilization V: Gods & Kings Expansion (June 22nd, 2012)
  • Skyrim: Dawnguard DLC (Summer 2012)
  • Grand Theft Auto V (December 2012)
