I know there’s been an extended silence around here, but there’s been a LOT going on lately. I haven’t done one of these “what’s happening now” write-ups in a while, so I figured it was time.
::note:: We postponed our DnD game this week due to Valentine’s Day. Check back next week for the continuing story, or read back over our previous sessions.
We have been sans power for the past couple of days, thanks to the five-thousandth snow storm to batter the East Coast here in the USA. According to our power company, we will HOPEFULLY have power back by 11 PM tonight…which pisses me off, because I only got one night to play Dead Space 2 so far :/ Here’s my one sentence review of the first 2 hours:
“When an environment scares you more than the mangled blood-thirsty monstrosities that inhabit it, you know the developers did a good job.”
I had big, epic plans for last week here on Living With a Nerd…and then I got sick Anyway, I’m back to about 80% now, so look for us to finally get back on track around here starting tomorrow!
Welcome to 2011, everyone! I hope you had as much fun in the last two weeks of the year as we did. Gifts were given, movies were watched, and games were played (not to mention money spent during this year’s epic Steam sale. I’ve got enough games to last me the next couple of months!) This year, we hope to slowly move away from the “reviews/links to news” style of writing that we generally stick with, and expand a bit more into commentary on nerd culture. We’re going to attempt to make our views as neutral as possible (as in explain both sides of the story, regardless of which one we agree with), but obviously being 100% unbiased isn’t possible. Still, we’re going to try!
Getting back into the swing of things, this week keep an eye out for reviews on The Witcher, Tron Legacy, Dragon Quest IX, some tips on having a functional yet fun gaming space, and more!
Hey all…I know things have been quiet here, but that’s because I’ve been working on the finishing touches of a short story called “Reversion”. It follows a zombie who awakens, only to find himself slowly coming back to life. What could such a soul-rending thing do to a man? Read it and find out!
An excerpt: ”Knowing he was one of the predators in this place of muted vivaciousness brought peace to his shriveled mind, as he completed the rest of his journey in a tranquil state of animalistic contentment.”
Because of the coming holiday (and all the craziness that comes with it), there likely won’t be much new content posted this week. We hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
