Video Surfeit

Last week I picked up Project Gotham Racing 2, Crimson Skies, and Counterstrike, three games for XBox, all with Live features to play against other humans online. I made a pig of myself all weekend, playing up to the "Classics" series in PGR2 and stalling out in the "Titanium Mine" section of Crimson Skies. I didn't get around to Counterstrike — too much video eventually gives me the same sick feeling I get from too much sugary cereal, too much Britpop, or too much bad television.

Oddly enough, I've been über-productive at the same time, completing a big set of maps for Malhavoc and ton of site updates for Microsoft.

I'll find you, never fear. My Halo skillz are faded, but my Crimson Skies ability is fierce.

Triple-booked, eh? My a**! ;)

You're such a junkie. And I just gave you money, too. However much you get for Bloodspeakers, that is.

I'm glad you picked up a copy of Bloodspeakers; hope you like it, since it's riddled with corrupt Crane, corrupt Phoenix, and corrupt Scorpion.

I still haven't gotten the author copies, but I'll ask the publisher about it again. Someday my author copies will arrive *before* the book hits stores.

And hey, I was überproductive on my writing and my web stuff. So sign up with Live already so I can get all frag-ilicious on your maple-syrupy badness. :)

I'll investigate that. My maple syrup is trembling. ;)

NB. AEG seems to have improved their quality control with regards to the L5R-ccg. Amazingly, they appear to have listened to the right playtesters for RoB, and the new set we've just started work on is *nice*. Did I mention that I picked up a foil Yoritomo Kitao last Sunday? :)

Geek ramblings over.
