Hear me meow

I had a lovely holiday weekend at home.  One of the nights, my husband grilled a succulent salmon for our dinner.  He chilled white wine and brought the laptop to the table to play some music.  Soon after we finished eating he pulled up an online list of the best upcoming 360 games.  How romantic.

I suppose it was thoughtful of him to give me the heads up on what I will be watching (and you will be reading).  He thought I might need blog fodder.  Blog fodder.  That sounds naughty...or Irish.  I'll blog your fodder.

Anyway, here is a recap of our "intimate" dinner conversation:

Gears of War 3 is coming out in September.  All I remember about the previous game is the chainsaw gun.  Time to "gear" up for some more quality hacking.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Battlefield 3 will be launching soon.  I'll reluctantly give it a chance.  Maybe the dudes in this game will have better butts than the competition.  

Saints Row: The Third is certain to hit my house in early January.  Helping my husband skank out his female figure (he often plays as a girl...more on this in a future post) equals Happy New Years to me.

Other games I am sure I will watch include: Mass Effect 3, BioShock Infinite and Assassin's Creed Revelations.  I particularly like watching Assassin's Creed, but since the current game just made my husband grumble, "what do these people want from me?" I am assuming this one might be further down on his mental gotta game list.

Finally, and really all of this to say, Batman: Arkham City is coming out in just a few short months.  We women typically turn to Cosmo or People to discover how to lure a man.  We have been sorely misguided.  What a man wants is Catwoman.  I intend to live vicariously through her.  I invite you to join me.  Hear me meow.



  1. Please keep the blog updates coming, I really, really, really enjoy them.
    Blythe can tell you I often (always) ruin the mood with some inappropriate video game discussion. Luckily she is a good nerd wife and puts up with me. Last night shee recognized the theme song from the legend of zelda. I love her very much.
    I hope the next blog will be about Zach playing as girls! (I often cross-game myself)

  2. Mark is so excited about Battlefield 3 he can hardly stand it. And I get the pleasure of sitting through each extended trailer as it's released.

    Ah, the things we do for love.

  3. I am so glad. It was my hope both gamers and those of us who love them would get something from this blog. Don't worry I have plenty to write.

    Cross-gaming. I like that. I am going to use that.
