I thought I might as well update this thing. I'll do it GameFAQs style.
RP - I wrote up a Full Auto 2 (PS3) review a couple of days ago, and about a week before that, I reviewed MLB 2K8 (PS3). I like my MLB review a lot more than I thought I would, considering that it's only the third or forth sports game I've reviewed, and two of those were for the DS.
GP - I played through Call of Duty 4's single player last week. It was quite good, but it was as short as everyone said. I was surprised at how interested I became in the plot and I was very happy to see one of my favorite series evolve. I've since been hopelessly hooked on GTAIV. I'm sure I haven't put in as much time as some other players, but I have a life and I think 19 hours is a major accomplishment in less than a week for a single game for me. I also installed Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and played through the first few checkpoints. That game has a lot to live up to considering how excellent the first game was. Mostly, I'm trying to catch up on a lot of games that I've missed, but my backlog still seems to be growing....
LP - About to graduate college and "enjoying" all of the stress that comes along with that. I'm busy trying to keep my grades up because I need all of .04 extra points on my GPA to graduate Magna Cum Laude, which wouldn't look too shabby. I'm in the process of applying to The Institute of World Politics in Washington D.C. I'm hoping to get accepted into their Strategic Intelligence Studies program because I'm reasonably positive I'll be able to get the type of job I want with a degree from there. For now though, just focusing on having a good time and enjoying the last few weeks of the incredibly awesome experience that was college.

Congratulations on all of that and I hope we'll see you posting some of your reviews over here, too!
I wish I had finished college so that I could have a degree right now. They're very pretty and make a wonderful conversation piece. Instead, I'm an uneducated slacker!

Cool, I still have a year of college left and no clue what I'll do when I get out. Go me.
