I was busy playing Super Mario 3D Land since last post. I usually can’t put it down until I completely finish everything through and through. I’ve finished collecting 320+ Star Medals, Gold Flag completed all the stages with both Mario and Luigi, as well as got a 5-Star rating on the save file. So, needless to say I’m pretty much done.

Luckily, I bought Mario Kart 7 to keep me going. But I’ll be taking my time with that one.

Lately, as you could probably tell, I’ve really been ramping up my game playing again. I really miss being able to play for hours and getting lost in a challenge so I’ve been looking for it in my favorite video games I haven’t touched in a while. iPhone games also have been creeping back into my free time. I’m quite competitive when it comes to score boards so games like Angry Birds make me go crazy with addiction. I am proud to report I’m somewhere within the top 5% of players in the world, but of course I think that can be improved.

Another game I started was Charadium II, its a bit like Pictionary where you draw a picture and other people have to guess at what it is. There’s usually about 15 rounds depending on how many people are in the room, and the person with the most points at the end of the match wins. Currently, I’m ranked in the top 20 U.S. players. Not too shabby if I say so myself.

I also got a copy of Parallels 7 for the Mac last week as well so when I get bored I load up Windows and travel back into time playing Roller Coaster Tycoon. I’ll be quite honest, I only play it build a very nice amusement park with a tall roller coaster, have people get on, ride to the top then shoot off and scream to their fiery exploding death. If you have never played this game when it came out back in 1999, then by all means watch the clip below in full screen and you’ll quickly realize how much fun it is.

As if that wasn’t enough, I also picked up Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Steam. I always loved playing Magic back in middle and high school so this takes me back. I wish it was Mac native, but Parallels 7 helps out with when I need my dose of Magic.



This should tide me over for a while. Any games you might recommend based on what I play? I’m game for anything.
