I just want to ramble this evening about what I’ve been up to, and talk about random upcoming stuff.

Graev is busy playing through Skylanders Giants. I’m excited to join him when I go home for Thanksgiving break. He’s enjoying the game a lot already and should have his thoughts up within a few days. He streamed this past week if you want to get hour about an hour and a half of Skylanders Giants gameplay.
I think the Wii U comes out the day after I get home. We have our Wii U Deluxe Edition pre-ordered. It wasn’t easy since they’re sold out everywhere. We had to grab ours 30 miles away at a random Toys R Us. We already talked about why we’re excited for the Wii U. The games are going to be amazing and the added functionality of the GamePad is going to be so cool.
My go-to game has really been there for me this past week. I’ve played a TON — mostly late at night — and think I’m getting better now that I’m back into it. Valve added a ton of heroes over the past months. Actually, I think they only need to add a few more (Techies please).
Black Ops II
Blops2 comes out in a few days. I think I already told you guys I’m getting it. Since then I doubted the idea because it’s Call of Duty, but then decided again that I would buy it because it really is three games in one. Since I skipped MW3 I feel like I can spend $60 on a CoD game and justify it on the fact that I’m craving an extremely polished shooter that doesn’t require a ton of commitment per match like Battlefield or even Planetside.
Okay, that’s enough for this Conglomoblog. It’s nice having so many great games available. We’ll get you our thoughts on the upcoming games asap.
