No 'Tabula Rasa' For Me
Published on October 3, 2007 By iTZKooPA In PC Gaming
Well I picked up The Orange Box pre-order last week while I was waiting for paint to dry. Okay actually it was the floor stain but really, its the same thing. Floors came out great though! Anyways my point is that I have decided to make a TotalGaming.net Gamers group (which is by no means officially supported by TG or Stardock) as a way to get some more interaction between us. If anyone wants to join up the group is public and is called 'TotalGaming.net Gamers' with the link to the group here. As I just made the group positions for offices and the likes are open although who knows how serious/large the group will become. Hey at least it may help some people get that “Play with 8 friends" achievement.

On a completely unrelated note due to my house still needing plenty of work I have decided against buying Tabula Rasa largely in part of the time I would have to play which I can't spare right now. I was actually excited when I found out about TR's delay the other day, hoping that it was something like Q2 2008 instead of just a few weeks. Reason being is that if it was delayed long enough I would hopefully have had time to play it at that point. Unfortunately I just don't really want to join an MMO after it has already been running for so long even though I enjoyed the title immensely during my alpha/beta playtime. Its something to do with wanting to be in at the ground floor of things. Regardless because of the decision to skip out on TR I was originally going to get Enemy Territory: Quake Wars after enjoying the demo but decided against that due to the overall value of The Orange Box (I refused to buy Half-Life 2 back in the day because of all the problems with Steam and their friends lists etc, but they've fixed everything I whined about, so I will be playing all the games in the box) and my love of the original Team Fortress. Which, as I have stated before, I was a big Quaker back in the day.

But of course its all for naught since its not like I will be saving any money or something by not purchasing games. This Q4 is just to intense on all fronts, PC, console and hand-helds, so I will most likely be broke and giving my games to other people as presents because I spent all my money on them. Thank god that I have gotten most of my family into gaming in some capacity and that my girlfriend is a gamer as well.

It says it's an invite-only group.
