Between the 1.4.3 patch and our recent adventure down at the Mythic offices, I have been hitting WAR pretty hard over the last month.  Now that Sigmartide is just about over (I'll miss you Aspect, call me) I figure it is time to change things up a bit.  This week I'm going to introduce some new games into my playtime.

Here's what I'm thinking of playing:

Team Fortress 2.  You may not have heard of this little gem as it's flown under the radar.  Yep, I am that guy who never actually played TF2 before.  I think the last PC shooter I played was Tribes.  Since TF2 is free, I figure now is the time to give it a whirl.  I played a bit yesterday and had a lot of fun.  Of course, I am pretty horrible at these games so we'll see how it goes.

League of Legends.  I've heard a number of people talk about this one on Twitter.  While I never really enjoyed competitive RTS games, this one seems to have a few aspects to make it a bit more friendly to a slow clicker like me.  I certainly won't miss all of the speed base building.  I played the tutorial and will probably do a bot map before throwing myself into the meat grinder that is online play.

Star Trek Online.  Season 4 is out and that includes the ground combat revamp.  My goal was to get some time in on this over the weekend, but the Foundry was down.  I really want to experience the best missions STO has to offer, so I'm going to wait for it to return and do some of the high rated user created content.

Warhammer Online.  I'll still be playing (and posting about) WAR of course.
