Some days after I started playing Morrowind I went inside a Game store and I just had to buy The Elder Scrolls Anthology. I know Arena and Daggerfall can be downloaded for free from their webpage, but they're for MS-DOS and I'd need DOS-box to make it work. I've never ever been able to make DOS-box work. On the discs for Arena and Daggerfall in Anthology it says PC-DVD, and since they didn't have DVDs back in the day of MS-DOS I figure that that means they're modified to work on modern PCs. I also think I'll put the map of Tamriel in a frame and hang it on the wall above my computer screen :3 Oh, and I also signed up as beta tester for Elder Scrolls Online :) I'm not a fan of MMOs but I'm really looking forward to TESO :D
Some weeks ago I got a craving for watching Pokémon from the very beginning, and as I did I also became obsessed with Pokémon again. I booted up a new game of SoulSilver along with my PokéWalker on my DS and now I'm trying to get my Pokémon up to level 40 so that I can beat the last Gym and get my 8th badge, before going into the Dragon's Den and then going to the Whirlpool Islands so that I can capture Lugia. I'll probably be able to catch Ho-Oh, Suicune, Entei and Raikou after that too. Legendary Pokémon ftw! :D Then I'll move from Johto to Kanto for the second part of the game :D I'm looking forward to all of that, it's just that I'm terrible at grinding and I quickly lose interest when I have to grind. I want to catch five Eevees so that I can get one of each of the Eeveelutions available in the 2nd gen: Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Umbreon and Espeon. I'm focusing a lot more on filling my PokéDex this time around.
I've also started playing a bit on my family in The Sims 2. My fourth generation is almost all grown up and they have started having babies so my fifth generation is on the way. Some time ago I talked about creating a new family, the Takahashi family, but it turned out I wasn't up for starting anew with a new family so I had the two adults split up and divorcing. The wife kept the kids and the cat, and the husband moved out and into a flat. Now I've had Anthony marry the wife, and Jenna has married the husband. So I've incorporated my new family with my really big family. I'm also out of werewolves and I'll need to fix that. I can't really decide who'll get to be my new werewolf...

Then there's finally BioShock. I loved the first game. It was absolutely brilliant. Then I played the second game and I loved that too. Originally I was very nervous about the Big Sisters, but they turned out not to be so hard. I'm both dreading and looking forward to Infinite. I want to play it cause it's BioShock and almost bound to be awesome, but I'm gonna miss not being in Rapture. It'll feel wrong somehow. At the same time I really, really want to finish Infinite before the new DLC, Burial at Sea, cause then it'll be in Rapture again! ^^ In the first game it was interesting to dress up as a Big Daddy towards the end. In the second game I loved that I was playing as a Big Daddy (not the same character though) and how I came to play as a Little Sister for a short while. It was a lot of fun crawling through vents as one of them :D And it felt badass to fight alongside a Big Sister :3 I still love that one kind of Big Daddy is called Rosie. It's so cute! ^_^
