On gaming (video)

Well, let's start from the most recent bit. I got me a copy of DDR Max last night, and this morning I'm playing... So far according to workout mode I've burned 270 Calories, but it sure feels more tiring than 800 Calories (1 hour) on the elliptical trainer at the gym. Wow. I hope I can keep this regimen up, maybe do this every other day... I wonder if workout mode lets me unlock anything; I'm guessing not.

Dark Age of Camelot is enjoying a bit of a resurgence on my PC, as I play some lower-level characters alongside friends of the same level (on Nimue, I've got a 15th level Bard, and on Gaheris a 5th level Necromancer). I have finally realized the reason I haven't been enjoying playing Lochinola (my 44th level Nightshade): all my friends are 50th level, and I'm pretty much useless on guild nights, sitting around getting power-leveled. So if any of you know any Nimue Hibernians around 44th level looking to group, drop me a line, or give me a call.

Starscape is a PC game that a friend is trying to get me into, and the demo is excellent... I will probably pick it up (i.e. buy a registration code) one of these days, but right now I just don't have the time for it.

Oh, look. The songs are easier in workout mode than in "Light" mode in the game. That would explain it. Oww... I'm so done playing DDR for the day.

A month ago or so, I picked up Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. What a fun game that was. Beautiful animation, good sense of humor, and very nicely goal-oriented. It was also short, but that's fine. I got it for $20 on the "classics" rack. Thinking I might pick up Ratchet and Clank next, or maybe Jax and Daxter.

Though I am getting a bit, y'know, frustrated at that whole not being able to find a single "clue" on a level after having searched it quite thoroughly, or so I would have thought. Even finding a checklist doesn't do it, since I can't really figure out which ones I've already found. Grr. A "reset this level" button would be nice.

    I might start poking my head in over at Dreamwidth. Same name.

  • What's up?

    I haven't posted here in a while... it seems some people still use LJ, so I might as well give some kind of update. I've been at Google for…

  • Where did I sleep, anyway?

    I don't remember. I'll have to look at a calendar or something... Let's see. Somerville, MA Rochester, MN Minneapolis, MN Philadelphia, PA…
