At the Last Minute

Hee hee, sliding this one in before the calendar ticks over to March. I really don't have any good excuse for not updating before this, other than my usual busy work schedule and chronic laziness when I'm at home. Actually, I guess that is not quite true. I've been putting a lot of time into a new game called Mass Effect 2 (ME2). I finally beat it yesterday at the 43 hour mark! This game is obviously the sequel to the first Mass Effect from a couple of years ago. I never got around to reviewing the first one, but it made a great impression on me with its detailed sci-fi setting and galactic exploration themes. The second game follows on directly after the first (you can even import your character from the first game). It is so good, I'm even thinking of playing it through again from the beginning with a new character! Look for a review of this game on the site in the not too distant future.

When I haven't been playing ME2, I've been spending some of my free time working on some of my wargamming projects. I'm currently working on a scratch-built Thunderbolt fighter, as well as several tanks that I received as Christmas gifts. I've also managed a few trips out to the game store, where I've been mainly playing Axis & Allies War at Sea. I've been really enjoying this game and the group of guys I've been playing with. I'd consider myself lucky if I find a group of gaming friends as half as fun when I get to my next tour!

Speaking of which, as I mentioned last time Gwen and I are going to be moving back to Virginia in April. I will be going to sea again between now and then, but we are already starting to look for places to live. We are looking at a couple of town houses, but haven't made any final decisions yet. Once we get settled, I'm looking at starting a project I've been putting off for a long time: My second R/C combat ship! This time around, I'm looking at building a WWII American ship, the USS Indiana. When I get the project underway, I will start another portion on my Warships page about it.
