Checkin’ In

Writing this while I watch UltraJMan play La-Mulana Wii.

Writing-wise, I’ve finished a revision of my Machine of Death story that, I think, is stronger than my original concept. As I mentioned before, I changed the concept a bit to focus less on the original main character and more on the reactions to her calling. I’ll have to run this by a few people to see if they agree with what I’m saying, but I personally like the new version better despite it running about 600 words longer.

We’re less than two weeks away from Connecticon, and suffice to say that my subconscious knows it. I feel like Trevor Horn (Yeah, that Trevor Horn) when he was in Yes. That’s all I’ll say on the subject for now.

How about all of you out there? Anything fun/exciting/stressful going on?

    Just came across a demo of Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls for PS3. Haven’t really played much since beating VI.

    Also been playing MLB 11 The Show, trying to get the Salute the Troops trophy (win a game as the Padres wearing their camo uniforms). Several of the trophies have historical reference as well.

    Yeah, I haven’t been playing much of anything lately, to be honest. I have been playing some Borderlands, mainly.

    Happy 4th of July!

    Remember seeing that Wiz’s 2 & 3 were flipped on the SNES trilogy? Turns out that Knight of Diamonds (II) was deemed too hard for beginners so Legacy of Llylgamyn (III) was released as the second for NES.

    Weird, because 2 at least didn’t have that alignment crap where you basically needed two separate parties (Well, or alignment flipping one back and forth) to beat the game. Of course, on the other hand, 2 was also initially designed for high-level characters from the start, whereas 3 was a bit more balanced.
