A little something about our son. More stuff from GTA V coming maybe in a later post.
When you have a child, you really want him to survive. That's a basic instinct, right? Then why does the feeling come out so negative when he's not eating? I've been stressing out lately with the fact that our 3 year old son doesn't eat that well when he's home. Well, if we'd give him only bread, then sure, he'd eat nothing but that! But a home cooked dinner apparently is never a good thing. And when he doesn't eat, I sometimes get really upset. I even get some really aggressive thoughts, that don't make any sense.
Louis C.K. really knows what I'm talking about.
I just have to accept the fact that he'll eat when he's hungry, and stop stressing out. Maybe he actually doesn't even know what a real hunger means, in our perfect society when there's always food available? My wife was talking about the third world countries, that because they don't have enough food to become fat and lazy, they have a better survival instinct and the smaller children probably don't have any trouble eating whatever.
Our son was complaining a stomach ache earlier, could it be that it was just hunger, but because he hasn't felt it that much, the instincts to eat have maybe dulled? I think that it's a thing that's hardwired to a human from birth.
Oh well, the situation will fix itself in time. I'm not going to starve our son on purpose!

5. Three protagonists
4. Story and the missions
3. Lots of activities
2. Big map to explore
When it comes to games, I'm truly an explorer. Nothing better than getting in your car or horse and driving off, never knowing what will come ahead. There wasn't much exploring in GTA IV, why the game wasn't that exciting.
I've always loved online gaming. MMO's somehow don't get a grip on me, I always get bored quite quickly (SWTOR was an exception), but nevertheless, I do love online gaming. And I've also been quite socially active on the internet, at least at the Pelaajaboard forums, and I like to play games with other people. This is truly the thing I'm waiting for most, as while it's fun to drive a car off a cliff, it's more fun to do it with a friend.
Sorry for the short explanations, I really have to go to sleep now.

Most people keep talking about the low sales of the Wii U, and keep on saying that there are no games for the system and that it's a complete disaster. I agree that currently there are not too many games in stores to be excited about, but people really don't think enough about the fact that when the new Mario Kart, Zelda and Mario platformer games comes out the system will start selling like methylamine to Heisenberg. Sure it has tough competition, but I'd say that the exclusive titles on the PS4 and Xbox One are really not so interesting at this moment that I'd personally buy those consoles. So long as one has a good gaming PC, most of the really interesting next-gen titles are available on that platform.

As a father, my gaming time is quite (understandably) limited. Our son just turned 3, so gaming is slowly becoming a part of our everyday life as I try to teach him some Mario on the NES or we play a little of some LEGO game. After our son goes to sleep we usually watch an episode or two of Stargate with my wife, and after that and a little internet surfing it's bedtime for us too.
