I have been slow on posting since I'm on vacation. Originally,
this meant I was obsessed with rediscovering Lego Rock Band.
However, that lasted for only last week. I think I did good in
that obsession, since I beat all rock challenges, unlocked all but
one entourage member, and beat the rock marathon and endless
setlists (15 and 30 song random sets). I feel good with all of
That has now
changed due to Christmas gifts and birthday gifts. On one
hand, EA has one nice offer now for a birthday gift. They gave
a 25% off coupon for their online store. This meant I could
finally buy the deluxe edition of Dragon Age Origins for the price
of the normal edition. This removed my problem of not wanting
to pay beyond the price of a normal game, but while also not being
reminded that my game is gimped. So, after paying just $49 for
the deluxe edition, I'm now set. Or I would have been set, but
the download took a couple hours, and the installation took another
chunk of time. This means I've only just started the game, but
I'm not too disappointed, yet.
On the other hand,
my friend Tangwich set me up with a hell of a lot of diversions.
Between birthday and Christmas, I have Burnout Paradise (I was the
one person in our circle of friends who didn't have this and who
couldn't join in the online insanity), Valkyrie Profile for the DS,
and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS; which is, so far, hard as
hell but good fun). That's a lot of games that will probably
keep me quite busy for a good chunk of time. I have to say,
Tangwich, you are awesome!
On a final note
before I go back to trying to decide what game I want to kill this
vacation day with, that the Seahawks are amazing. I don't mean
it in a good way.
destroyed by the Bucs last weekend, I thought they had really hit
bottom. The Colts wiped out the 'Hawks in a bad game this
season. Then the Vikings did the same. Then Arizona had
two runs of kicking blue and green up and down the field. Now
the Packers have made all of those defeats look a lot better after
handing the Seahawks a 48-10 defeat. Really, it should have
been 48-3, but Carlson had a nice catch at the end of the 4th
Only one more game
remains this season, and it's against the Titans. Hopefully,
it bad enough to either wake up Jim Mora, since he'll be back next
season, or it's enough to get some major changes in place. As
it stands, the Seahawks are a sinking ship, and no band-aid will fix
this. The only solution is to scrap the team and start from
scratch. If another season of trying to "patch the holes"
comes next year, it will only be worse. Maybe that's the
current plan for the Seahawks; let the Rams finally not be the worst
team in the NFC West (or NFC in general).
