Monday! Time to go back to the monotony or stress of work existence and fondly remember simpler times when you defended towers, battled monsters and had star power. Feel free to remember out loud and share..

What games did you play this week/end?

(Did you know these Geeklists have a subscription thread? They do!)

Another busy weekend. I played a couple songs on Rock Band Blitz on the 360, and then my standard couple of games of Ticket to Ride on the iPad.

I also messed around with the XCOM: Enemy Unknown demo, but wasn't real happy with it. I sure hope the actual game is better than this completely flawed demo. I fear that this game has been watered down too much to do the source material justice. I'm keeping my pre-order just because I firmly believe that killing hostile aliens, researching their technology, and using it against them is just too much fun to pass on. I'll be kicking myself when Xenonauts comes out and buries this reiteration.

I played Assasin's Creed Revelations. Twice to the same point. The point where my game gets bugged while loading a mission and I just get stuck in the Animus Loading screen. Filed a bug report, but apparently, Ubisoft doesn't work on the weekends, which seems a bit stupid to me, you'd think that's when most people play games and thus need the most assistance if they have issues... Anyway, they sent me some instructions now, will see what it does, but I doubt it will help anything.

I'm getting pretty good at space murder.

The internet connection is out at our house so I played a lot of GoF2. A serious lot.

I'm saving up to get one of the ships formerly owned by a space criminal I space killed to collect a space bounty.

The Supernova add-on showed up just as I was wondering what I was going to spend my in-game money on. There are plenty of new, expensive things in the new storyline.

Also, my favorite line so far: It's time for some diplomacy Keith T. Maxwell style.

I got to play some Borderlands 2 this weekend but not nearly enough because of school work.

It is interesting though, because some of my friends power leveled my character up to 31 and I'm completing about level 11 challenges in my solo game. With 1 XP a kill it is going to take a looooooong time to level.

I'm waiting for work to end so I can rush home and play this. Not having a life isn't so bad after all.

Yes, I know, I've got a fan badge... but despite starting new games of Torchlight at least six times, I never finished it. With the second game out now, I'd like to finally finish this and bounce to the sequel.

I played quite a lot of this on Sunday. I got to the point where I had to go in search of the missing Tanis.

I managed to finish this today over lunch. Now, on to the DLC!!

I didn't do that much gaming this weekend, as I resumed a couple of miniature painting projects that have been on hiatus for nearly a year. What gaming I did manage though was with Borderlands 2. I'm loving it, even while simultaneously doing separate single player and a co-op playthroughs (both attempts being on the obsessively completionist side of things).

Playing the utterly tragic XCOM demo got me in the mood for some good turn-based tactics, so I found myself playing this.

Just got PKs, which puts me about 2/3rds through through the game.

Rediscovered this game after a long hiatus. Quite fun! There are new world events I had not seen before and I am thinking about going all out on some DLC, but not quite sure.

Well, actually it's Out of the Park 13, but you get the idea. I just picked it up on special and have had a couple of gos at it. Not especially satisfying to someone whose main pleasure is managing games, though, and I'm not used to the roster interface.
