A weekly post updated every Tuesday detailing my current gaming projects. I have quite a backlog of games to either play or watch, and I’m hoping a weekly article will assist with my progress as my other accountable posts have done with reading and writing.
I have an account at Grouvee, which is a essentially Goodreads for gamers, so please feel free to friend me there!

I not going to call it quits on this game, but I have cut back how often I play it. I was religiously booting it up at least once a day to collect my daily reward and do a few things, but now I’m kind of meh on that. From what I understand about freemium games, they just keep going until you grow tired of them. I really like FFBE’s story, but I don’t think there’s ever any conclusion (feel free to set me straight if this is an erroneous observation). So, I’m not giving up on it, but I’m going to put it on the back burner so that I can concentrate on other games.
Title: The Room Three
Genre: Puzzle, Mystery
Developer: Fireproof Games

I finished The Room Two in less than a week and immediately downloaded the third installment for $3.99. This one has even more of a streamlined feel to it with your character going from room to room in addition to have more of a room to look around. I like when creators improve with each iteration, and I’m more than willing to fork over my money in order to play a stellar puzzle game. The cut scenes and graphics are also very impressive.

Currently, at the part where Shepherd is in the geth interface learning the truth about them and their quarian creators. It’s not nearly as straightforward as we’re initially led to believe. I’m really curious what she’ll have to say to Tali and the other admirals after she comes out.

- Thumper – I’m already a fan of rhythm games, but Cheap Boss Attack had to mention there’s kind of a creep factor, so I had to check out some videos on YouTube. I can definitely see it. There’s a frenetic intensity that I haven’t felt since I battled “Lou” in Guitar Hero, and with Thumper, it’s even more so.

- The Room Three – $3.99
I have been Switch hunting for a while now with no luck. I…don’t even know if I want to spend the $300-$400 it would cost, yet I feel if I find one I’m almost required to do so, because they’re such fucking unicorns. Also, no retailer even knows when they’re going to come in well at least Best Buy doesn’t. I’d gone there after work to pick up some replacement headphones, and since I was there, I figured I’d ask. No luck, but the store guy agreed with my assessment of the Big N hehe.
Also, I’m thinking of starting another weekly post Music Monday where I’d feature one game music video a week, since I find them like all the time. This is a huge maybe though since I’d be adding another thing to my weekly schedule. In my head it doesn’t feel like it would take too long: find a song, post the link, say a few things about it. I could even schedule it on Sunday so I wouldn’t have another thing to do during the work week. Plus, I love talk about music, and I just found this amazing music theory channel that I want to share with the world. Ah the more I talk/think about it the more I want to do it :p
Finally, there’s going to be a daily post for the entire month of June starting on June 1. The majority of them have already been drafted, and I’ll probably schedule them out. It is video game related (obviously, or I wouldn’t be mentioning it here), and it’s been done by at least two other bloggers, so you might already know what it is. It’s been a fun, little endeavor that I was waiting to roll out once a 30 day month came around again. I wanted to do it for April, but didn’t take the time in March to set it up, so June it will be!
