Last night pretty much sucked for any Packers fan. Blarrgle, blurgh, o-line. ^%$&%(&)(^&SACKS$%@!# This nightmare seems as if it will never end.
I drowned my sorrows in scotch: dry, tasty scotch, and then I played Borderlands until I was almost certain to be tormented by dreams of millions of white, green, blue, purple, and orange guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, and rocket launchers. I’ve been loving the shit out of Borderlands lately, so if anyone out there has it for Sexbox 360 I want to play co-op with you.
I need to finish the shit out of Borderlands soon, though, because Dragon Age comes out tomorrow. I preordered it on Steam (more on that in a second) so I should be able to play it immediately. It’s your standard go-out-and-kill-the-marauding-hordes-with-a-sword type of thing. Kind of excited; I really liked Neverwinter Nights back in the day and this is by the same dudes. GRIMGAW, TO ME!
Anyways, Steam is pretty nice. I gotta preface by saying that I’m a fan of online stores. The iTunes Store, XBOX Live, these are things that allow me to near instantly acquire things I want without bullshit (also good since I don’t have a car to get to places like Best Buy). Steam is a client you install on your PC that allows you to purchase new and old games, and to pre-order games that will be released in the future. The games are delivered by download, and it’s kinda cool since it acts as a dashboard where you can launch all the games on your computer. For old times’ sake, I bought Zuma Adventures and Bookworm Adventures. Goddammit I love Bookworm, where you defeat your enemies with the power of words (the longer, the better). One time I one-shotted an enemy by spelling the word “prosthetic” from a pool of 16 jumbled letters and felt like a god. Wwhazz, it may be up your alley in a Bananagrams-ish way.
