Today's Games: The new Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 2, Wii Sports Resort, and as you may have guessed, Borderlands for the PC. Hooray for a free game. Boo for my display driver not being able to handle Borderlands. Once I finally tracked down a version that would install properly, I got the game running. It's pretty fun, but Curt was probably in Terre Haute by the time I started playing for real. No co-op for me yet. I just got to level 5 by the time I stopped, and then switched to FF10 for some annoying minigames. I've managed to get the five Celestial Weapons I've gotten before to full power... I may try dodging lightning at some point. I may not. I'm sure I'll play more Blitzball eventually. I also found an arrangement that may work for doing LPs of console games with live commentary over the Internet. Whoever's watching the stream will see some lag, but it's probably better than nothing... depending on who's providing the commentary, and on what game. Anyone who's got Skype and is interested in trying it out, at least for a test run, let me know.
The free Black Jack taco was good. The guy behind me in line didn't know they were offering one until I told him, but the cops behind him were offered one when they didn't ask for it, so I assume that anyone who ate there tonight would have been told about it anyway.
I have the 12th Wheel of Time novel and no plans to read the 11th. This should surprise no one.
