Late night ramblings

A rare weekend post. I promise nothing of substance.

...and I just deleted about a paragraph of shit.

At this very moment I am half watching top 16 Marvel at Kumite in Tennessee instead of playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I stopped playing Call of Duty on purpose to do so and I don't really care about Marvel. I would not have stopped playing Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for this.

It is appears that I have lost my enthusiasm for spectacle for the sack of itself as that is all Call of Duty has to offer. Past generation transitions, and we really are still in such a transition over a year later, have satisfied me with more of the same but shinier. Call of Duty is exactly that. More of what we know at a higher resolution, more action on screen and a solid frame rate. There is nothing to complain about. There is also nothing to be excited for.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris was excellent at around one tenth of the budget. Who am I kidding, it was probably produced in its entirety for the equivalent of Kevin Spacey's voice acting bill. It was also more of the same but its path is much less traveled.

And I am still watching Marvel, a game that I do not play, instead of getting work done on Call of Duty. If you must ask, yes, I am sober, but I almost wish I wasn't.

...Hulk, Hagger, Shuma-Gorath? What the hell?

Why am I watching this game. It makes little sense and I barely understand it. Everything is broken so nothing is broken. Then someone pulls a crazy team and I have to cheer for them.

  1. "getting work done on Call of Duty." That's why I haven't played a CoD since Modern Warfare.
