I’m going to admit it…It’s driving me absolutely insane. I’m waiting with bated breath, like a kid before Christmas. I’m antsy. I’m on the edge of my seat. I’m dying with anticipation. Every time I get an email I jam in to my email program as fast as I can get there, hoping it will be the notification that the Planetside 2 beta has begun and it’s time to get in there and split some wigs.
While I’m waiting, I’ve been searching for the perfect game to play – in my down time, of course, when I’m not playing games for work – to pass the time and take my mind off of the wait. I’ve gone through quite a few in the last few weeks and I’m at a loss as to what will serve best to distract me.
So far, I’ve gone through Ultima 4, X-Com UFO Defense, Sniper Elite V2, several plays through Solar 2, played X3: Albion Prelude until my eyes bled, hacked the entire universe in Uplink, built enough megalopolises in Sim City 4 to cover 3 entire planets, ran through Skyrim again, beat Angry Birds to death and have spent enough money on Steam to finance a small country.
In the end, I’ve settled back in to to Planetside and have been playing a lot of that, trying to re-sharpen my skills in preparation for the start of the Planetside 2 beta. I have to admit, I’m having a lot of fun but playing the original is both satisfying and torturous, as it makes me yearn even more for the start of PS2.
So I want to know…What are YOU playing, while you wait for the Planetside 2 Beta to start? Hit me with something good so I can pass the time!
