You should be. Now I have to go kick a puppy or something to make up for it.

Actually make that a baby. I'd feel bad about kicking a puppy.

Played a little Civilization II.  I chose a small world with 7 nations, raging whores hordes, and warlord difficulty (I wanted to give myself a chance).

Before I had learned my second tech, the Japanese had wiped out 3 civs.  By the end of the game, they were doing so much damage, half the conquered civs came back! 

Ironically, they were nice to me.  In fact, the only combat I saw was fighting off some barbarians.

I had a bit of an embarrassing moment in Terraria. I defeated the Eye of Cthulhu using a gold bow, gold armour and an enchanted boomerang and later on the Eater of Worlds twice. After all that, I found I was one of two demonite bars short of a full set of demonite armour, weapons and tools. To fix that, I decided to beat up the Eye of Cthulhu for a bit of demonite and a gold coin. This time around I had a full set of demonite armour, a demon bow, a musket, a vilethorn and my old enchanted boomerang. That fight was a total walkover, right? Well actually, the bastard killed me before it reached its second phase.

Even though I was playing single player, I was so ashamed.

I got the Halo: Anniversery Edition today. :)

Other than that I've been mainly going back and forth between finishing side quests on my first character in Skyrim, and doing a last run through of ME2 before ME3 comes out.

Also, unlocked the 12X and 3.4X scoped for my main sniper rifle in BF3.  I love the 12x scope on big open maps cause the distance you can snipe people from is rediculous.  Then the 3.4X is awesome for medium and smaller maps because it basically becomes a long range shotgun.

I officially can't wait for The Darkness II.  If its anywhere near as good as the first one, I will explode from the sheer fucking orgasm-inducing WIN that will be that game.

On my second playtrough of Mass effect 2 I used a character with biotic skills (first playtrhough was as a soldier) and there is this ability called shockwave. Basically a series of explosions ending in a big on which move in a straight line at an enemy. At first it seemed weak since most of the enemies are smart enough to use cover but then I reached that one level... Cybernetic zombie hordes chargin at me, not bothering with cover and to top it off the level was mostly made from narrow walkways surrounded by a deep pit... Mwahahahaaa! boom boom BOOM! Oh the humanity! Bits and pieces flying everywhere! Even the ones that would have survived the blast get thrown into a pit.

Fun.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

About to face the Wall of Flesh in Terraria and move on to hardmode. All that's left to do is loot the floating islands and quarantine my house and surrounding area against the impending super-powered hallow and corruption spread. Fun stuff.

I know it is. I just figured if he wanted to play it ASAP he'd like to know he'd need a gold membership. Otherwise he would have to wait. If he doesn't have one I think I have a code somewhere for a trial...

I also plan on playing the Asura's Wrath thing. Guy I know says it's a bastard child of Ninja Blade and DBZ.
