“Someone once told me,” my sister told me, “you can tell how a man will treat his wife from how he treats his mother.”
I have a a funny relationship with my parents. It’s not that I hate them, it just seems like we just tolerate each other’s existence. But I have been a bit aloof, and I could always use the advice. Apparently they are, in the end, simply concerned. I have always wanted the best in life, so they just want to make sure that I’m getting it.
“You are probably one of the most financially and emotionally stable of all your peers. Don’t f**k it up.”
In the D Drive: After Furmac bought the Red vs. Blue DVD (essentially the “Office Space” or videogaming) and showed it to me, I was excited to get my hands on Halo PC. If this is the best Xbox game, I feel sorry for people who own an Xbox. Not to say it’s a bad game, but it ain’t no Half-Life. The mentally-challenged AI and poor level design really hurts it. Most of the levels are mindless jaunts into mazes of identical-looking corridors and rooms, and to add insult to injury, the storyline often requires you to turn around and trudge back the way you come. Its saving grace are the great vehicles with great physics.
Another game I’m playing is the freeware side-scrolling RPG called The Spirit Engine. The graphics will remind you for Final Fantasy 1, but the tactics and skillsets are actually very well done. You will definitely have to read the Help to understand the nuances between each character, skill, item, and weapon.
