I hate you, Best Buy

No, that’s a terrible, terrible lie…I actually love the kittens out of that place. It’s just that thanks to their glorious “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” deal, I’ve now got a stack of games sitting on my desk and giving me the staredown as I try to survive the semester. Being a grad student inherently means I no longer get to have a life – that is, until December 21st, when I’ll earn a well-deserved respite.

And, oh, what a respite it shall be. For that one month of winter-breakness, I’ll be doing nothing but gaming, reading, and watching. So what’s on the to-do list? (as I say to no one in particular)

1.) Uncharted 2: Sweet Moe, I want to play this so badly. I loved the first one to pieces, and from all the hype I’ve heard around the great net, the sequel seems to outmatch the first one in every regard. I’m anticipating this beast to break into my Top 10 list. Will it live up to that?

2.) Borderlands: I hope people will still be playing this in a couple months. It’d be just my luck to finally get a chance to catch the buzz only to have everybody else already move on to the Next Big Thing.

3.) Demon’s Souls: I’m so looking forward to getting my face smeared across the floor.

4.) Ratchet & Clank: A Crank in Time: This’ll be my first venture into the series, and it looks absolutely delicious. I think I’ve heard someone compare it to a mix of Mega Man and Crash Bandicoot, which is just a remarkably genius idea. Hell, it even borders on my blueprint for Strippers With Beer-Dispensing Boobs. I got a copyright on that, bitches, so no touchies.

5.) Metroid Prime Trilogy: It’s about goddamn time I play this. I mean, it IS the Citizen Kane of videogames after all.

Don’t worry…we’ll have our together time soon enough, Samus.

6.) Final Fantasy V Advance: I been hit with a bit of the nostalgia bug. It seems I’m playing this whenever I get a free moment now and then (I really shouldn’t), and it works well in short servings.

So there you have it. Looks like I’m booked for the winter…and that’s not even counting the 70+ books on my to-read list or the TV shows I want to catch up on (Dexter, The Office, Always Sunny, Star Wars Clone Wars, House, Supernatural, Bones, etc.). Seems like the only thing I’m still up-to-date with these days is anime.

I think I’ll just end this with a big ol’ LE SIGH.

Keep on dreamin’, Chi. One day you’ll win. You and me both, pal.
