Ding dong!

Not Avon calling.  It's the absent caretaker.

My gaming has taken an odd turn.  I've been playing Monster World, Zombie Land and City of Wonder in Google Plus, more than any other games.

I've played a bit of Torchlight, but I've lost a bit of interest in it.

I've played a bit of Civ V, but I've lost a bit of interest in it.

I've played a bit of Cities In Motion, but I think if I have to engage the employment and stock parts of the game, it's going to be put in the "too hard" basket.

I'm not really looking forward to Diablo 3 as much as I was.  I keep hearing the term MMO being applied to it.  Though I thought it was a dungeon crawler with co-op, which does not make an MMO.  And the more I hear MMO getting associated with it, the less I want to pick it up.

I'm looking forward to Torchlight 2 a little more than Diablo 3, but less than I was a month ago.  For the announced price, I think I'll pick it up anyway.

I've started getting to DCs The New 52.  Just Action, Detective, Justice League, Batman, Superman, The Dark Knight and Swamp Thing to start.  However, I don't think I'll be playing DC Universe Online, even when it does go free to play.

I did see a demo for Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning, the other day.  It reminded me of RIFT, it reminded me of Dungeon Siege, it reminded me of Oblivion, it reminded me of WoW when I used to enjoy it.  It's the type of game I'm yearning for these days; a single player action RPG that I can start and stop whenever I want.  Oh, sweet, it looks like there is an option for pre ordering, and they do a digital version.  Awesome.

I did spot that Dragon Age DLC that Felicia Day has had a hand in (am I master of understatement yet?).  I haven't played Dragon Age at all.  Perhaps that could be a good reason to get into it.
