It's the middle of the week, and I am prepared to call Halloween over.
I don't have any offspring, and my desire to don outfits that mock the creatures of the night has waned in my budding adult-hood. And I don't like dressing up in "clever" or "famous-people" costumes, nor am I of the sex that allows me to dress like Sarah Palin.
Although, oddly enough, I did recently have to start wearing glasses, and everyone that I have encountered in the last few days has made some kind of Palin reference.
That woman. She's like... well, I suppose she's kind of like Larry The Cable Guy. Love her or (more likely) hate her, you know who she is and what she's been up to. And she epitomizes ignorant white trash.
I don't use this space to talk about politics, mostly because it's a near-guaranteed way to alienate half your audience. But even half of the Right is scared of Ms. Palin, and I'm begrudgingly willing to alienate a quarter of my audience. Just know that I love each and every one of you, and if you think I'm being too mean than please assume that I am joking.
My cohort has informed me that the video game market is about to be saturated with quality products, and I'm very happy about that. Granted, I only play a select number of titles, and they have to supply a very steady diet of fun, otherwise they are nothing more than sensory stimulation that I will merely endure until it's time to play Hexic HD or Catan again.
The Multi-Player experience is vital to my enjoyment of a game, and a great deal of that experience is going to be measured on a purely technical level. Which means that until all the other gaming companies come to their fucking senses and just license the lobby/matchmaking technology from Bungie, my days are going to be continually packed with rounds of Halo 3.
But, for reals, I can't wait to play some Left 4 Dead.
