I've finished STALKER. I went back and poked around some areas to see if anything significant had changed since I finished the game - it hadn't. A few people have some different text, but that's about it. It still looks pretty much the same. And those random jobs just aren't terribly interesting.

I explored a bit, gathered up a bunch of artifacts, visited a few areas that I never really got a good look at before... But I've pretty much run out of steam. I'm having a hard time getting really excited about wandering around the same areas and finding yet another pseudodog tail.

I fired up Torchlight again, played some more of that. I've now finished it with both a Vanquisher and an Alchemist. A couple times on my Vanquisher, actually. It's still a fun game, but it is getting a little repetitive. And it never had a terribly engaging storyline. So that isn't really doing it for me.

I completed Chrono Trigger yet again. It'll be a year or so before I feel like playing through it again.

So, I'm at a bit of a loss right now... I don't really have any games to play. Sure, there are plenty of games that I could re-play... But nothing new and interesting to bury myself in.

The new STALKER: Call of Pripyat looks very promising, but it won't be out for another couple of months.

The new Aliens vs Predator game looks very good too, but again it won't be out for a while.

I keep looking at EVE: Online... Especially with the new Dominion update... But I'm not sure I want to jump back into that. Seems like any time I start playing EVE, something comes up just when I get settled and really start enjoying myself, and I wind up having to cancel my account again.

hah i'm the same way with EVE. I've subbed several times...never make it more than 2 months and I cancel due to being a little on the bored side. But darn it if the graphics and deep gameplay premise isn't a big draw every so often.
@mantooth012 Actually, it's the exact opposite for me.

I thoroughly enjoy EVE and have a great time playing it. I'm far from bored.

But it takes a little while to get back up to speed... Figure out what changes have been made since the last time I played, get into a corporation again, learn what the local area is like and which systems to avoid, get back in the swing of things...

And then, just as I'm settling in and starting to have a great time again, something comes up.

Maybe it's a new WoW expansion that my wife insists we play... Or maybe work gets busy and I have no free time for EVE... But, regardless, I find myself unable to keep playing EVE and I wind up canceling my subscription again.

It's really frustrating.
