What We Played for Week Ending March 4

What We Played for Week Ending March 4

by Jennifer KibbleMarch 5, 2012

This is a weekly segment where we share what games we are currently playing for our readers to get to know us a bit better. Said games can range from retro to current and from casual to FPS games. If we’re playing it, we’ll share it. Please feel free to comment with what you’re playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.

DaJuan: Well I decided a change was necessary so I sold my 360 and DSi. With that money I was able to buy a PS3 and a PS Vita. I also bought a couple of games for each platform, and that is what I have been playing. On the PS3 I have been playing Gotham City Imposters and Dead Island. For the PS Vita I have been playing Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 and Mod Nation Racers: Road Trip. I have also been able to sprinkle in sometime with SWTOR.

Jake: Literally just finished Mass Effect 1, about to start Mass Effect 2. Been playing the new hero in HoN and absolutely loving throwing creeps and trees at people.

William: League of Legends is my go-to time waster of the moment until I find another solid game to go through. The new carry can get pretty damn strong, but I don’t know how I feel about carries with built in sustain early game. When I’m not doing that, Beyond Good and Evil is still being played through. I’ve also been utilizing this new App Game called Hero Academy. It’s the first well done tactical game that I’ve played on a mobile device and I kinda like it.

Jason: Working my way through all the DLC for Mass Effect 2 I hadn’t already played. Still jumping into Star Wars: The Old Republic for PVP fun here and there as well. Oh and I just got an Xperia Play so been playing a lot of Dugenon Defenders Second Wave while waiting on those PvP queues in Star Wars.

Angela: I’ve been leveling my mage in World of Warcraft.

Brittany: Modern Warfare 3 as usual. Hitting up my Wii for some Skyward Sword and Harvest Moon later this weekend.

Jeff: I’ve been going through the PS2 port of Half-Life, with a little Portal intermission. I’m hoping I can get around to replaying Half-Life 2 soon, but I still have a ways to go before I can leave Black Mesa.

Jen: Finished up Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition at the start of the week. That last mission drove me a tad nuts at four in the morning. Unsure what to play before the launch of Mass Effect 3, I turned to Twitter. The majority of votes went to Saints Row the Third. I’ve already beaten it but I had started a new character (this one male) a while back so it was nice to return to Steelport. I started to work on achievements for the game and play it opposite than my female character did.

Greg: I finished Mass Effect 2‘s DLC on Tuesday. Since then, I’ve been playing Amalur, checking out different builds. And the more I play the game, the more fun I have with it. I know it’s a fairly standard RPG, (I gave it a 4/5), but it’s really really fun. Counting down until Tuesday, like most people. Also starting to look into Avengers VS X-Men which starts at the end of this month.

John: I’ve been finishing up Mass Effect 2 and it’s DLC, creating a new FemShep for Mass Effect 3. I’ve also been playing a little bit of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on my 360. I’ve owned it on PC since it’s release, and it’s one of my favorite games. Since I won’t be getting my PC back for another few weeks, I decided to grab it for the XBox and see how it compares to the PC version.

    So I don’t know where to start, it’s a pretty long story.
    We were both 14 when we started dating (eighth grade). Before that time we didn’t really talk much, but I always thought she was one of the prettiest girls in school. I didn’t know her until seventh grade, when I realized that we were in the same class. We were friends, but nothing more. In the beginning of eighth grade we started texting really often, and we started getting close. Many of my friends kept saying that she liked me and then, one day, her friends said that they needed to talk to me and they told me that she was into me and that they knew that I was also into her (It was true), so I needed to go get her and that’s what I did. We started dating that day. She was my first girlfriend and I was her first boyfriend. Everything worked out fine the first weeks. I played guitar for her, we hung out really often and we texted each other all day long. After a couple of weeks her friends started getting mad at her cause she spent too much time with me and then things started falling apart. She started spending most of the time with her friends, saying that they were her best friends and that they needed her attention as much as I did. Then it was me who started to get mad. One day I went talking to her friends saying that I loved her really much and that I needed to be with her and they kept saying that they were her best friends and that they loved her as much as I did and they also needed to be with her. I still think that it was childish to say that. They shared everything. She showed them all my texts and everything I told her, she would tell them (I hated that). Anyways, from that day, things didn’t went pretty well, when we were together I was super happy, but when she left to go meet her friends I used to get sad and jealous (I know, I’m an a*s*s*h*o*l*e), but everytime she noticed that I was sad she would come talk to me, she was really sweet. One day, after 4 months dating, she couldn’t take it anymore I guess. She said that she wanted time to think. We didn’t talk for a week and, one day, she said she wanted to meet me and that was when she broke up with me saying that she still loved me but things would never work out between us cause she couldn’t put up with my jealousy anymore (It was in March). I begged her to let me show her that I could change but I guess it was worthless. She said that the best thing to do was to forget her. All of my friends tried to help me cause they knew how much we loved each other, but she didn’t wanted to get back with me. She told me to stop texting her cause it would be easier to forget me. One day, my teacher decided to slip the class in groups to make a school project, and as she knew that we still loved each other she put us in the same group. My ex almost begged on her knees to the teacher to put her in another group. My heart almost stopped when I heard that…
    From that day, until the end of the school we never talked. It took us about 2 or 3 months to forget each other. Then, at the end of the school year (In the end of June) my band performed at my school and after the concert, one of my friends that didn’t knew that we had dated said: “You’re so freaking lucky, that hot girl didn’t stop looking at you during the concert”. That girl was my ex.
    In the beginning of the ninth grade (this year) she got another boyfriend (He was 2 years older than her). But they broke up after 2 months I think. We started talking in the middle of this school year and we started being friends again, even thought we rarely talk. Sometimes I used to text her asking for some homework and she would reply, but we didn’t talked that much. I don’t know why, I was really shy when she was around. At the end of the year, she invited me to go to her birthday party. I didn’t believe that she would invite me, but she did. We went to a club and she danced with every guy she invited except me, I already knew that would happen, but when I was about to leave she grabbed my hand and said “Let’s dance!”. She placed my hands in her waist and we danced… (This was yesterday LOL). Sorry if it is to big, but I couldn’t make it smaller. Do you think I will ever get another shot with her? THANK YOU. TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU THINK ABOUT THIS!

    The steam heat boiler has copper feeds to the radiators in this 1 pipe system. The pressure for steam heat is also much lower than in forced hot water. Obviously the Cu pipe can take the heat if there are functioning Cu (copper) lines in place already. Why not install modern, finned, forced hot water baseboard radiators?

    Is there anywhere you can check how many reagrediants you need?

    MIGHT BE LONG TXT BUT BEAR WITH ME HERE PEOPLE! I’m going 2 be a sophomore and ever since the first week of freshman year, me and this girl have been really good friends. But, the thing is, I don’t wanna be friends…obviously. Basically we started talking in school cuz we had study hall and health classes 2gether and I got her number and when school ended, since we didn’t see eachother anymore, we started txting just about almost every other day if not every day. Sometimes i txt her, sometimes she txt me, and when she went on vacation she txted me b4 and after her flights just to “wish her luck”(4 the flight i guess) or to let me know she got back safe. During school we’ve gotton eachother x-mas gifts, birthday gifts, and when i came back from a week-long vacation in March, she was thrilled to see me so she ran right up to me and gave me a huge hug. Yeah its a hug but w/e. I’m not like the usual “hot” guy in school who gets all the chicks 24/7 but I’m a linemen for my football team and I started varsity as a freshman and my bro started division 1 college football as a freshmen so imma have colleges that are intrested in seeing me play. I may be a linemen but im in great physical shape and im extremely strong in the weight room. benchin like 260 as a freshmen. (not trying to brag just saying im not some skinning fucking tan cutesy quaterback or something). anyways i know she enjoys talking to me n stuff and she knows im a good person cuz she told me that. We’ve told eachother stuff like “no matter what happens im always here for u and all that lifetimey crap. Dont get me wrong im not trying to get in her pants and shes not like the school bicycle but im lookin 4 a long lasting relationship. and to sum this up so u guys dont ger bored, i have my license test on january 3rd even though it shud be 1st but they’re out 4 the new year holiday… i know right? so i was thinkin to hang out in and out of school, stay out of the friends zone, and im not sure about asking her out b4 or after my license cuz i dont want mommy n daddy fucking carpooling me n her but then again i dont want to get snatched up cuz that would kill me. i dunno if she likes me or not and if u guys think she does, give me advice for maybe waiting to ask her out or goin 4 it a few weeks into school cuz i actualy really rally like this girl a lot shes just perfect. anyways leave me ur thoughts.

    Alright. So I’m going to give you the entire story because you really need it to understand what’s going on. Please read the whole thing, I’m actually trying to shorten it so it’s easier to read. I especially need boy’s answers, just because he is a boy and they know what’s really truly going on but, of course, everyone’s answer will work. And I need as many answers as possible!!!! Lots of opinions!!! Today is April 2nd and all of this started in January. January 2nd, to be exact. It has been approximately 3 months. Anyway, here is the story.
    <<Rewind to January<>Fast forward to February>>
    This is when everything broke. Parker, my friend Chelsea, and his friend Alex, were joking around before we went to our buses at the end of the day. I’m VERY close friends with Alex (nothing romantic!!! lol) so we have a handshake. In the middle of our handshake, Chelsea pushed me into Parker and screamed,
    “BENNY! GO TALK TO PARKER!!!!” I, being the very shy person I am around boys, pretended my dad was calling me and I left, Chelsea said Parker smiled when I left… I’m not so sure about that now.
    After that, he seemed uncomfortable around me. We lost our inside jokes and didn’t flirt anymore. There is something you need to know about Parker. He’s not very good with girls. He never has been. You have to set Parker up with someone to get him a girlfriend. He’s had 3, his friends all set him up with girls.
    >>fast forward to March>>
    Now it’s the end of March. No progress was made during March. Maybe we talked once or twice, but about stupid things.
    This past week, we had this thing at my school where people play music and do dances to it and lip sync. It’s called Lip Sync and every grade goes to it and it usually lasts 7th and 8th period. Me and my friends sat near Parker and I caught him looking at me a few times.
    At the end of Lip Sync, I ran up to my friend, Aria, who performed and gave her a giant hug. She’s taller than me so she kind of picked me up. Parker was standing near us and stared at me. Not in a weird way, just kind of looked.
    At the end of that day (Friday) he was walking outside to catch his bus. I was with a bunch of my friends about to go outside and him and his friends walked with us and I caught him staring at me and he looked kind of sad.
    Today is Sunday, and all the Lip Sync stuff happened on Friday. I’m kind of confused because he’s sending me mixed messages but I don’t know what to think of them.
    The end. Does it seem like he might like me? I’m really confused and it’s making me really sad. EVERYONE ANSWERSSS(: I need as many answers and opinions as possible.

    Oh, one more thing. I’m popular, sort of, and I’m really good with people if I know them, and I’m really good at making new friend. Just one problem: I can’t talk to him. I’m awkward and shy around him and I’m not good at starting conversations with him. AT ALL. So is there anyway to find out if he likes me without having to talk to him and everything? I know that sounds a little weird, sorry.

    THANKS :) :) xox

    I heard there is a way that you can get a house in this game to get a trunk to put items in? I’ve been doing a lot of side quests, I think I have finished 3 or 4 quests in the main story line.
