So it appears that I'm stuck on my backup PC for at least a few more weeks. What can you do with a PC that was pretty good five years ago? In no particular order, these are my planned gaming endeavors for the next few weeks:
Borderlands (on the 360): I am up to about 24 on a Support Gunner and 19 on a Hunter. I've finally been able to dabble in online play, and it is a heck of a lot of fun. Very little lag and voice chat works like a charm. However, I'm still playing mainly offline so that I can take my time and carefully dig through all the loot that drops. I'll likely be online a bit more once I've been through the main story at least once.
LoTRO: everyone in my kinship likely thinks I'm dead, it's been almost a month since I've been able to log on a weekend. Planning to catch up with things there. I'm also considering starting an alt on Landroval. Maybe a human burgler?
i-tunes: I absolutely need something I can play on my backup PC at a decent frame rate and still run i-tunes in the background. Harsh electronica makes killing things more fun. Wizard 101 and World of Warcraft both fit that bill, I may go back to one of them. DAoC is also very friendly in terms of system requirements, I might stick my head in there to see how the game is getting along (poorly I suspect).
