I really settled in to be a wastrel today. I had to take a break to write a little stream of consciousness post after several hours of playing Twilight Princess. I have cheeto dust all over my jeans and three bottles of empty cream soda strewn about the couch area, more empty bags of chips on the floor, on the chair cushions. I had my top pants button undone, for maximum gluttonous room and I microwaved my dinner. Sad but fun. I’ll do something productive tomorrow, I promise.
I really like Zelda, but why can’t my character be civilized and just look inside the clay vases and not smash them? I feel like a vandal. I really miss the Ultima days where you could see a chest of drawers and you could open them, and stuff was in them. That you could steal. When did it become acceptable to have a placeholder chest of drawers? Isn’t that going backwards in role playing game evolution? That’s what always irritated me about WOW. I always wanted to claim one of those Ironforge houses and make it a Guild way-station, have some flowers on the table, mead in the cupboard, guildie only access. No can do. What MMORPG has that kind of detail now?
I think if video game companies had more women on their staff, those kind of details would be #1 on the list. Like, say, being able to change your hair style, and more face customization. Character customization is really important to me when I play games, and I’m a little worried that I won’t be able to have flowing red hair out of my helmet for Hellgate. I am reserving judgment until I actually get to play.
I actually pre-ordered it today. Eagerly anticipating a beta key in my email. I’m actually obsessively checking it too much. I bought from GoGamer for the wasp armour, definitely the sleekest colors IMO.
Oh ya, watched Bionic Woman last night, I’m a little on the fence. There’s something very cold about it, although I do like the lead girl, I think she’s great. The special effects were very cool, as were the fight sequences. Definitely will be checking out a few more episodes.
Ok, back to Wii. I should be going out tonight, but…I’m too lazy. 🙂
