Hello Again!

Hello Again!

Post by USMCWeatherMan on 26/11/2014, 03:18

Hello all,

I'm back, well kind of. Been around, just work and trying to finish up this stinking degree before I retire from the Marines and life and all have really eaten up a lot of my time. Barely touched my 360 in the last year or so.

May be looking to get into more PC gaming again. There just really arent any console titles that are tickling my fancy right now. No real desire to pick up an XB1 or PS4 either.

I busted out an old hack n slash RPG (Sacred/Underworld) that was out back in like '04. So old it was out when XP was around. Fired it up on my Windows 8.1 machine and its running like a champ. Able to set up a LAN server and have got me and my oldest hacking up trolls and orcs.

What's new around here?

Sweet guys, like I said been around just all this life stuff getting in the way of gaming.

Part of the reason I got away from gaming I think is because I had a medical issue called cubital tunnel syndrome....like carpal tunnel but in the elbow with the funny bone nerve. After about an hour or so of gaming and holding a controller my hands and arms would start to go numb.

Had surgery on the right arm a few months back, scheduled for surgery on the left arm here this Tuesday.

Good news is right arm seems to be on the up and up, so hoping to have much of the same success with the left arm.

If that goes well, I might pick up an XB1, but there really arent any titles out there that really have me excited. I though ESO might be it but then I read the horrible reviews....so kind of in limbo I guess.

May be picking up a gaming laptop for XMas, which is why I think I may be leaning toward PC gaming, but we shall see.

Only 5 more classes left at university, once those are done I'll have loads more free time.

My cubital tunnel was pretty bad, hands and arms would go numb after only a minute or two with arms being bent. And the pain....the pain is/was ridiculous, soreness feeling down to the bone. Hoping you can get yours sorted.

I'm just ready to get it over with, another 2 weeks in a freaking cast I'm not looking forward to, but its all worth it in the end. Use of my arms and hands without numbness and pain would probably make gaming again more enjoyable, plus as I am wrapping up a Computer Science degree hoping to get a computer programmer job, then numbness and pain would have put a damper on that.

I still have yet to finish Skyrim...got the expansion pack havent even delved into it....need to wrap that sucker up. Still have Batman Arkham Origins to finish up and Battlefield 3 which I bought a year ago for $5....

My oldest is getting pretty deep into gaming, he plays the crap out of Minecraft, enjoys a little Fifa too. I'll be picking up Destiny for him this Christmas...hear that one is enjoyable.

Thanks for the heads up. We'll probably just wind up playing Co-Op (if its an option). I dont really let him play online yet, he's only 10 and you know how XBox Live can be with the idiots and asshats.

Cant shelter him forever I suppose, but will try to hold out for another few years.
