Computer Games of 2011

It's  been a while since I rambled about computer games.  That doesn't mean I haven't been busy, though.  Some of the games I've been enjoying in the last year:

  • Minecraft
  • Civ 4
  • Civ 5
  • Singularity
  • Fallout New Vegas
  • Terrari
  • Borderlands
  • Skyrim
  • Portal 2
  • Machinarium
  • Left for Dead 2
  • Diablo 3 (beta test)

And I have some new ones to play:

  • Tribes Ascend
  • Deux Ex
  • Oblivion
  • Skyward Sword (Wii)

I recently finished the novel Reaper Man, by Terry Pratchett.  Another fun book in the Discworld series.  I also picked up The Light Fantastic and Wyrd Sisters to read next.

The island vineyard project continues with a couple of small projects to close out the 2011 year.  We brought the motorbike across the river and toured around the island.  Which was fun, but the weeds were high enough in many places that it made motorbiking a bit difficult.
