Dark Cloud

The first game I have played since... 2007. Because of the constant pounding rain that finally let up this morning, I enjoyed an entire weekend of carefree gaming and coffee! Maybe some physics meshed into the mix, but I haven't pulled an allnighter like that in sooo long.

Fun game; I will probably buy the sequels as well and hopefully they only get better.

Yet another example of my inner nerd.

Crappy Cover = Crappy Book?

After my trip to Half Price last weekend, I started reading Aurian, which I had previously read in high school and remembered enjoying, in order to be able to read Harp of Winds, one of the new books I picked up.

I read the entire thing and feel horrified I thought at one point this book was ever interesting. The first 7 chapters are good and then any attempt at characterization and plot just simply fails. Once I started the second book, hoping at least this one might validate my purchase, I was again sorely disappointed.

Lame book as well.

In this instance, judging the book by its cover would have been a wiser choice on my part.
