Do you find yourself improving to a great extent when you play a game?
One of the buzzwords for gaming nowadays is "co-op" multiplayer, whether it's 2 players in a room or (much more commonly) online. Sometimes it's 2-player co-op, sometimes 4 (and sometimes even 3!).
Some people can multi-task while others have a hard time doing that. Then there are some of us that are fine at multi-tasking but don't have the ability to spread their interest around multiple "fun" activities at the same time.
I was listening to the Talk Radar podcast from June 11, and they had a wickedly funny riff on the collection of thermoses in Alan Wake.
or "what happens when an attempted update continually crashes your system?"
First day back at work after almost a week off sick, and things are really piling up. Tonight, I probably won't have access to the computer for much time, so here's a post that I generally call "Potpourri" on my home blog. Just some little postie-things that make up a bigger post.
I can't believe Magic: The Gathering came out 17 years ago! I remember playing it with one of my friends who got me hooked on the game, though I was never very good at it. The interest kind of waned for some reason, and since it was only the one friend I played with, I ended up selling my cards when I stopped playing.

Now that I've been blogging and interacting on GI Online for a while, I've noticed a few things that could stand for improvement on the site.
Many gamers put untold hours into their gaming addiction, sometimes spending whole days trying to beat a game or finish a level or complete a story. Is it too much time? It's hard to say.
