The Mog List: 5 Gaming Related Things You Can Do Other Than Valentines Day Stuff: 2012 Edition

I’m not really much for Valentines Day. Sure, I like the concept of showering your significant other with gifts and taking them out for a fancy dinner and what not but it sucks pretty damn hard when you’re single and not wanting to think about all the ex-girlfriends you’ve had. Luckily, I’m here to give you some ideas and things to look up to when the red, hot and heavy isn’t playing your way this year.
1. Try The Mass Effect 3 Demo
A few people have already got their hands on the Mass Effect 3 demo for Xbox 360. However, this Tuesday will be the day that everyone from 360 to PC to PS3 will be able to get their hands down and dirty with a small portion of the Single Player and the Multiplayer as well. Surely, you can find some games online with the rest of the lonely hearts, duking it out against the reapers. The game recently went gold so even if your one night stand with the demo wasn’t enough for you, you can say hello to her again on March 6th 2012.
Oh and I guess you can gawk at FemShep. <3 Or just Mark Meer Shepard if you’re into that.
2. Play Twisted Metal AND Twisted Metal Black
If you already tried the demo on PS3, you already know if you’re going to buy it or not. But, did you know that every new copy of Twisted Metal for the PS3 also comes with a downloadable code to get Twisted Metal Black from the PS2? Sure, it’s not HD updated but Twisted Metal Black was one of best Twisted Metal games and if you want to go back from some nostalgia and watch some of the sick stories and endings, here ya go.
I don’t remember if there’s any ladies in this game. I guess there’s a bunch of hunks though.
3. Play Final Fantasy XIII-2
When I first reviewed Final Fantasy XIII-2, it took me about 20 hours to go through the main story (24 hours in a day, by the way). In the entirety of this run, I have said to myself that if I ever saw Serah in real life, I am scooping her away from Snow and making her my “waifu.” If you’re in the same, sick, deranged boat like I am in regards to that, you should spend this entire Tuesday just emerging yourself with Serah all day and night with Final Fantasy XIII-2. What you do beyond what is given in the game and your controller… well, let’s just keep that to yourself, mmhmm.
I don’t think Noel would make a good boyfriend.
4. Kill An Entire Town in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Every time I play some sort of open RPG like The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim or, in this case, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, I always end up murdering everyone in towns and I can easily say that it can completely obliterate anything that is hurting your poor little heart. While I don’t recommend playing this game just for the sole fact that you can murder everyone in town, you are completely free to do whatever you want because, hey, we have save files for that.
Oh and evidently it’s a good game and has some really deep leveling mechanics and customizations. Which, by the way, you should check out the tips written by our own OnesOwnGrief.
5. Play Star Wars: The Old Republic and Find An Online Girlfriend
Actually no, don’t do that. Star Wars: The Old Republic or any MMORPG can be a pretty nice place to find some socializing once you find a great guild. Heck, if you’re already playing these games, chances are that you already are in a nice guild with some nice peeps that will probably listen to the sob story that you have about your ex-girlfriend or, heck, lack of a girlfriend.
That and in SWTOR, you can romance your companions and they never say no… Unless you screw up on a conversation prompt, which hitting ESC will easily roll back the whole thing. I’m serious!
