My mother in law has been here off and on, which keeps me out of my video game room (since it's also the guest room); so I went ahead and loaded up Bioshock 2 on the PC. As I might have expected, I had to fight Games for Windows Live first...egads, what a piece of crap that stuff is. It's unfortunate, I actually like being logged onto my Live gamertag while playing a PC game...but why can't GFWL ever just work?!?
Anyway...BS2 seems like more of the same so far, which is good since I loved Bioshock. Playing BS2 on Hard though, where I played BS1 on Normal. Maybe it's the difficulty setting, but I still think that it's crazy hard to kill that first Big Daddy, since you don't really have any good plasmids or weapons/upgrades yet. And my first Big Sisters? Yeah, okay...if I hadn't gotten her stuck on some train tracks, I would have had to rez 30 times before I chipped her down to nothing. Maybe I just suck.
On an unrelated note, I'm experiencing some remorse for not buying the Dragon Age complete pack when Steam had it on sale for $20 last Monday. I already own and finished the main game, but $20 is still a good price for Awakenings and all the DLC. I assumed I would have the whole week to make a decision, but nope...one day and it was gone. Oh well.
