Amy's currently on her last big trip of the season/year, which means that I'm smack-dab in the middle of the latest episode of Max's Home Alone Adventure. I must admit that I have found myself wondering several times what I used to do with all my free time in the days before City of Heroes. I have found that I missed out on a lot of great console games while I was sucked-in, so this is giving me a good chance to catch-up. Currently, I'm playing a lot of Def Jam Fight for NY, the sequel to Def Jam Vendetta. I'm a big fan of wrestling-style fighting games, so it's a great time. And it's insane all the people they've got in it. That's some mega-license-action. Also probably going to have to get around to checking out "Destroy All Humans", the X-Men Legends series, Civ IV, and more.
In other mindless entertainment news, VH1's new show But Can They Sing? is HORRIBLE. It's got the now familiar D-level "celebrities" in an American Idol-esque singing competition, complete with viewer voting. But they're pretty much resoundly TERRIBLE. It's like watching a train wreck. And to make it worse, they get mostly POSITIVE feedback instead of the tear-downs that really ought to be coming.
Quick and links:
- Cavs whipped the dislocated Hornets in the season opener. Roughly 70 more games like that and we're golden. Both former New Orleans pro teams don't seem to be faring too well with the displacement.
- I'm glad SOMEONE is questioning why oil companies are getting away with record profits while gouging us with record-high gas prices.
- As if it weren't already obvious enough, Facebook is seriously the new StalkerNet. It also works for universities to catch folks breaking the rules. I've heard rumors of this being done at OSU as well.
- Check out Hapland and Hapland 2 at the Farcade. They're both very cool, but kind of difficult.
