All work and no play...

... Fortunately, that's not me. I've been playing plenty when the time allows it. Here's what I'm currently playing:

  • Rock Band
  • Yeah, I'm a sucker for rhythm games. I'm best at the guitar having completed the solo career on Expert mode. My (lack of) drum skills keep me constrained to the Medium difficulty currently, but I have finished the vocal career on the Hard difficulty. Unfortunately, the drums tend to keep the family awake at night when I normally play, so it may be a while before I can play them very well. Besides, mine are nowhere as cool as Greg's setup.

    When I get the chance (not very often) I play plastic guitar for two bands, Juicy Torrid Crane and Ugly Lampshade. Unfortunately I haven't gotten many achievements yet in Band World Tour mode.
  • Guitar Hero 3
  • I was playing this pretty heavily until I got Rock Band, but it pales in comparison. There are definitely some great song selections. I've beat the solo career on Hard, but am having trouble with one of the songs on Expert, Raining Blood (not my favorite song by any stretch).
  • EverQuest II
  • Besides working on it, I do enjoy playing EQ2. I two-box an Ogre Shadowknight and a Wood Elf Fury and am currently around level 72. I generally play with some other people from SOE but also love a good pick-up group. I've moved servers recently and currently play on Unrest.

So that's what I'm playing these days. Oh, and I'd love to finish Mass Effect and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. I generally don't get a whole lot of play time since I play late at night after everyone else has gone to bed. Family comes first!
