So.... A couple of months worth of vacations have come and pass, and the days till the back to college are getting thinner at an alarming rate, not to mention an exam I have on early Febraury... F**** Algebra...
Anyhow, I've spent this past months trying out for the first time the 360, a good friend of mine got it on his trip to the States. So these days have been all about Co-op games (with the exception of Assassins Creed 2, which turned out into a pretty good game, absolutely loved the game mechanics). First of all it was Gears of War 2, then Borderlands and now Army of Two: 40fth day.
But after all that gaming there's only one thing left to say: The more and more I played on that console I realized that there's no better device for FPS games than the all-mighty mouse. I mean, after a while you get used to aiming with the pad, but... it's just not the same. Not by a long shot.
Anyway, as fun as it is, other than with AC2 I didn't played with it by myself, even though I had it at home for weeks with some pretty nice-looking games. It's just... not so appealing. I even preferred to play Imperium Galactica 2 (a great but very old game) than the xbox. Heck, I even re-started playing Freespace2 (for a short time, yeah, but I re-started it non the less). But that's probably 'cause I'm getting old...
On the modding aspect of things, work on the Prequel Campaign for Stargate: War Begins is coming along nicely, even after the countless setbacks, which have been all cleared now... after many long and frustating hours... sometimes I just HATE Nexus.
But the community of that agonizing game has grown a lot in the past months, with plenty of old mods being brought back to life and other being started from scratch, and the future of our beloved game is looking brighter now. Or at least a bit less dark :P
Oh, I almost forgot, the call for both Beta Testers and Voice Actors is still up, so if you wish to become either (or both) just let me know :)
And also, a good friend of mine the other day made me feel rather guilty of leaving behind any work on my book... haven't done pretty much anything these vacations... or the whole 2009 for that matter... and now that they're almost over the guilt's come... so time to unpolish the 200 pages manuscrit and continue digitizing the blasted thing....
Okey, moving on... Finished reading the newest book from Dan Brown these last few days, The Lost Symbol. Quite mind-blowing, in fact. A good read, by all means. Specially because it backed up my beliefs (if you could call it that) quite well, it was a bit... I don't know, far-fetched, about certain stuff (well, a lot of stuff, actually), but it was rather good too (and I won't be doing here a full review of it... not in the mood right now...), but I do beleive that some of the stuff there has to be true, specially what's related to our mind, but that's just my belief.
I'm now trying to find a copy of Alice's adventures in wonderland to get warmed up for Tim Burtom's upcoming film, which I'm definately going to see (I mean... one of the most "lisergic" books made into film by one of the most, again, "lisergic" director? that's got to be something)
well... that would be it for now... Just some rambling that I decided to put into paper (you know what I mean...)
