Heroes and Oblivion loom, but not too closely

The past month was a good time for games; I'm glad I managed to fit so much in. None of the three I mentioned in my previous post are particularly long; Undrentide and Pariah are about ten hours apiece, and Underdark is long for an expansion pack but shorter than a full game. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow was the other game I played recently, and it's pretty average length. All of that adds up to quite a bit of playtime, though. Getting sick didn't really provide me with extra time to play games; my time that would have been spent at work was mostly spent sleeping or at least resting. Once the pinkeye hit, it was hard to play most games because of the sore eyes.

But, anyway. I'm glad that I'm making it through the queue of games. I've still got Quake IV, Knights of the Old Republic II, Silent Storm, and Civilization IV on tap. I think I've had enough RPG and FPS for a while, so I think that the next time I find myself needing a gaming fix, I'll probably break out the Silent Storm, Civilization IV, or maybe even some more Winter Assault skirmishes. Heroes of Might and Magic V and The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion are still a few months away, so I have some time to fill. Or, at least whatever chunk of free time that Office 12 beta 2 leaves me. I am going to try to manage my time a little better than I did around Office 12 beta 1. I'll see how that goes.
