In a profound brain fog today, so please excuse the random topics.
DG recently gave me Crackdown (an Xbox 360 game) as a consolation prize for being neglected during these final months of her thesis (yes, I can be bribed). I’ve been playing it a bit too much, I think, because last night all I could dream about was jumping up the side of buildings and hiding behind walls while grenades were thrown at me. It may be time to take a break…yeah, right.
Crackdown also comes with access to the upcoming Halo 3 public beta, which should be interesting.
(Man, is this all I have to write about these days? When did I become so boring? …oh, right.)
I was planning to review Crackdown, along with Grindhouse and Hot Fuzz, but I’ve hit one of those phases where I find reviewing pointless. My enthusiasm should return at some point.
You may recall the incomplete zombie novella I posted in segments back in October, Vengeance Upon the Dust. I finished it in December but haven’t looked at it in months, so it should be nice and baked. I intend to put it through the editing process next week while I’m on vacation. At that point, I’ll show it to a few select readers, then maybe start shopping it around. I don’t like the “Dust” title; I’ve taken to calling it The Wanderer again. That’s still too generic, so I’m open to suggestions.
Speaking of resurrecting old junk, I’ve got a new feature I’m going to introduce tomorrow. It…might be fun.
