What We Played | July 23 – 29

by Jennifer KibbleJuly 30, 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.

Ryan: Spent the week working on Batman: Arkham City and Portal 2. haven’t beat either of them yet, but have been wanting to for a long time. Tried All Points Bulletin: Reloaded as well, but I got booted from the sever every 2 minutes, so I gave up.

Jen: I’ve fallen into the SWTOR/Bejeweled 3 habit. Got my Dark Jedi to level 45 and she’s causing all sorts of trouble on Voss, which is one of my favorite planets. B3 gets played when I want to fall asleep or when I’m on the exercise bike. Which reminds me, I should start up with ITG and DDR again.

Ben: I finally beat Dragon’s Dogma, which was a great game even though it had its faults—like the quest system. Besides that, I just relaxed and saw Batman for the second time.

John: I’ve had almost no time to game as of late, but when I do find the time I jump on Mass Effect MP and try to promote as many characters as I can. I’m pretty sure I’ll be playing ME3 MP for quite a while.

Jeff: It’s taken longer than I expected, but I’ve finally completed all three Metroid Prime games. Echoes is still my favorite of the trilogy, but each of them offered a unique and memorable experience. I spent a little more time in the Metroid universe with Metroid Fusion, wrapping up a save file that I’d had sitting halfway done for months. In between, I had some local multiplayer fun with some older sports titles and Unreal Tournament 3.

    On July 22 and 23 I had unprotected sex with my bf, he did not ejaculate inside of me but that was the only form of protection that we used. Starting on the following Thursday 7-29 I vommited shortly after eating breakfast and in the morning again on Friday. Saturday and Sunday there was no sickness, but Monday I got sick about three times in the morning and three times that evening. Tuesday I got sick in the morning, same on Wednesday and today Thursday. Wednesday I started bleeding slightly and it got heavier (sorta of medium) today and my period which is always regular is not due until August 7th so bleeding is occuring four days early. In addition to the vommiting daily, I have been feeling very bloated in my stomach, been feeling more tired than usual and have been going to bed earlier than usual. I have also been a little more forgetful than normal and I dont know if it is just my mind playing tricks on me but it seems like I can smell things more within the last few days. To top things off the 22nd of July was one of my ovulation days and that is one of the days we had sex. So all in all I am confused, I am showing signs of pregnancy (prodominantly vommiting) but not sure if that is what it could be especially since now I am bleeding? I did take a pregnancy test this past monday which read not pregnant but it was too early I am pretty sure it was six days before my expected period was due. I am basically reaching out to anyone that reads this that might be able to give me some insight to my situation, I am confused and am wondering how likely it may be that i may infact be pregnant? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Is it just me or did everyone else see that NEW ZEALAND Isn’

  • SteveO

    Thanks in advance. There may be spelling errors as I’m typing this via my blackberry.

    Anyways, I really need advice as my ex is honestly playing with my head as my friends put it. I was with my ex for fourteen months (23.02.2011 too 29.04.2012). While we was together we never argued once or fell out untill the last month (april) of what lead to us breaking up. The reasons personal but I found out I may not be able to have children and I wanted to stop birthcontrol and try for a baby and he lashed out and dumped me. Anywho after the breakup it broke my hard as it was after our first argument and he already started to slag me off to people and say all I was good for is sex. So I went round his demanding answers of what lead to another row and me screaming ‘(name) Uses people for sex and is a rapist’ out of anger. Yes I no it was out of line. We didn’t talk since.

    But last week (Tues, 3rd July) him and I started messaging one-another and arranged to meet up. Of what lead to us holding hands, talking about everything and we also kissed. He said he regretted endeding it, loves me and misses me BUT we had to build bridges in order to be together again. Of what I agree. But by friday that week he sent me a message saying he can’t do this and blocked me on everything. I later found out his parents were disappointed that we’re talking again. So I spammed his Blackberry and got a reply and he said “I can’t be with you as I can’t forgive you for what you said when we broke up” my instant reply was “Why kiss me if you couldn’t forgive me”. I haven’t recived a reply since but a previous ex has shown that he’d like us to be together again and my ex saw it and said this too a mutral friend of ours ‘Oh see she goes with somebody else shows how much she cares’.. Considering I’m not dating anybody I don’t get what he means :/…

    Anyways.. Got any advice as I can’t stop thinking about him.

    I’m eighteen by the way, live alone, work and study. Before you judge.

    So I only met him about 3 weeks ago and we started hanging out Friday and now it’s Wednesday, but here the details: I’m 23, he is 29 and we randomly met at a coffee shop. On Friday we hung out at a bar with his friends and my friends. He later asked my roommate outside of the bar if he thinks I like him, said he wanted to hang out with me so bad. We almost had sex Saturday morning, we made out a lot but then my best friend and my roommate came knocking on the door. Then him, his friends, my best friend and I went to watch the world cup (my home country was playing). During the day he went on a trip with his friends but when he came home at night he called me. Sunday (4th of July) he skipped a BBQ with his friends and joined my friends and me for a picnic at a park all day. Later that night my friends and his friends all met up and we watched fireworks from a hill. Sunday night he stayed at my place again, we had sex and the next morning we had sex also. Then he spent all Monday with my male roommate and me, just walking around, eating and talking. When we said bye we made out for a long time, I told him I liked him and he told me he liked me a lot. Tuesday night I texted him and was wondering what he was up to. He invited me to a bar, hung out with his friends, his roommates and my roommates then later had sex twice again. This morning we got coffee together and later he came to a bar where I was at to watch the worlcup with me. After he invited me over to his place. He basically got ready for work, nothing happened.

    I know, it sounds like he likes me, but so far we haven’t been on a real date and we have already had sex a few times. I am falling for this man quickly. He is incredibly good looking, very nice and reliable and on top of that he tells me a lot about him, his family and friends and wants to know a lot about me.

    Please..I want to hear an opinion since it is still too early to talk to him about this at this point.
    ok, many here think we have had nothing but sex, but we have almost spent every day together since we started hanging out and we did not just have sex all the time. I think having sex is something natural and mutual that both want. He introduces me to everybody, he gets along with my friends (male and female) but doesn’t really pay attention to other girls. He looks me in the eyes a lot and is very affectionate when we are alone (Im not the kind of person either who makes out in front of friends). He likes to talk to me and tells me a lot and he is interested in me, my family, job etc. Plus he always calls when he says he will and often meets me where I am. The first time we almost had sex he even said “do you want to go watch the soccer game instead?” since my home country played. He always makes sure I’m fine, offers me his jacket and according to my (male, gay) roommate “takes care of me”.
