no complaints... video games.

nothing to complain about. *sigh*

Oh, I bought a video card this weekend for my computer mostly because I couldn't stand the unfinished project of my PC being "mostly back alive" sitting in my room... Now that it's back up and running it's mostly still shut down.

I tried to play Warcraft III that PC some more (man, is it pretty with the new card)... But the first level of the Undead campaign, which you'd think wouldn't be that hard to beat, I haven't been able to get past yet. I keep forgetting to save, and getting impatient and running in with all my guys to try to kick some ass. Always a mistake on a level with very few resources. I will have to go through it saving after every little victory, and try to beat it that way, sometime. 'cause patience is not something I have a lot of for the game, and I don't know why.

I also preordered Kingdom Hearts from the Electronics Boutique. Hopefully this time they'll actually save me a copy from their first shipment, but at least since I didn't get it from the Galleria, if they don't have it I won't have to pay twice for parking. I have high hopes for that thing. A week and a day to go...

Computer/console gaming seems to be coming back into my life as a hobby... It's not bad, though it is a bit expensive. Eternal Darkness was worth the money, I think... though, thinking about it, going to see a movie is like $10, getting a movie on DVD is like $15-25... the soundtrack album is like $13-17... Overall, a game costs about as much as all of those combined. Maybe I should go back to movies as my main source of entertainment.

Ahh, but a movie lasts a couple of hours. A $50 game lasts... well, 13 hours, in the case of Eternal Darkness. Plus replay value (which is not inconsiderable).

Huh. Kingdom Hearts has Haley Joel Osment providing the voice for the main character. Good sign.

Anyway, it's time to begin the workday.

    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…
