Final Fantasy XIII... Heading to PC?

You see, this is the reason why Personal Computer gamers need to continue supporting console ports that get a PC release, especially when they choose Steam as the digital distribution destination of choice. Square Enix has been releasing plenty of old Final Fantasy ports - not remakes, ports - in the past and apparently now they have great confidence over PC gamers by releasing Final Fantasy XIII on Steam early next month. And they already planned to release the sequels XIII-2 and Lightning Returns by next spring! Sure, they did skip a couple of older entries from the PSOne and PlayStation 2 eras but why is it that I have a feeling that those will eventually make the transition? This is really easy money for the developer and a win-win situation for all. The future of gaming is the PC, more specifically, Steam as the place to game. With a release such as this game, that statement will continue to remain true and let's hope that the trend will forever continue for the rest of eternity. It looks like finishing this game on the PlayStation 3 will not happen for me because I will be doing just that on my PC! I encourage those who have played the game to still get this again ($15 before discounts) and more goodies will come to Steam, guaranteed.

They should have just release it in a trilogy bundle but this is still wonderful.

Most Played Games on Steam Thus Far

Steam is telling me that as of today, I apparently have 924 games on my account with 843 downloadable contents owned. So 83% of my Personal Computer games are Steampowered. Yeah, Steam is the true essence of PC gaming. Now it's always more difficult to sit down and think about my top 10 favorite games of all time but you know it's a lot easier to figure out my favorite Steam games by looking at the time I spent playing these games. One of them listed here is indeed listed in my top 10 favorite games because it was one of the lucky two that got a Steam re-release but yes, I am surprised that I haven't played much of the PC version of Nights: Into Dreams... As a matter of fact, I seem to have completely forgotten about it. I must revisit that game soon! But I am getting a bit distracted here. My most played Steam games are interestingly varied. I sure wish however that Steam would track the time played for the non-Steam games added to the client because you know, the number would look super crazy for that one game I love. The game sitting at the top of the list shouldn't be a surprise for those who have been paying attention:

Another Injury? Let's Appease Maya

I have been very, very good with my Yourself!Fitness workout routine on the X-Box since I started working out again in May. I never missed a single scheduled workout until that one fated Thursday two weeks ago. Somehow, I injured my right thigh and ankle and they hurt pretty bad. I decided to take a several days off just to make sure that I didn't make things worse but now, it's been a week and a half and I haven't been back to report in on the situation to Maya. I know she will be very upset. Worse, I know for sure that she will be disappointed but I was just trying to take care of myself. It is at the point where it's kind of hard to force myself to get into a routine again only after a week but I also know that there are still some pain in my leg so I keep trying to convince myself that I am doing the right thing. It's a curious thing however that I have injured myself not too long ago when I tried too hard and I am beginning to think that this is because I am getting old. Age shouldn't ever be a deterrent but I know the problem is deeper than that. I worked out pretty hard but I have not been good about providing myself with the proper diet to accompany that full body workout even though I have changed some of my bad eating habits by eliminating soda intake entirely from my diet - the spouse loves buying diet Pepsi but my will has been strong - and eating more greens. I do want to get back into a routine physical activity and it is going to involve the Yourself!Fitness software but I am taking a different approach this time around to see if it works better for me.

You never know if a crocodile is going to come out of that suspicious looking pond.

The game has a feature called the "Meditation Garden" that I have never fully utilized before. So I am thinking of just doing daily yoga sessions instead of my usual full body workout rotations. Who knows. Maybe this will work better for me with my sedentary lifestyle and hopefully it will still help me keep a healthy weight. I am thinking of starting tomorrow but you know when it comes to starting something like this, there may be delays but it's all a matter of just starting up that one session because I know that I am disciplined enough to follow through. Perhaps this kind of an exercise routine is gentle enough for me to not incur any more injuries. I can tell you one thing though, those yoga moves may look soft and smooth but they do hurt, a lot. Let's keep the bodily harm to a minimum here, can you please promise that to me Maya?
