Yet Another Update Post

For the past couple of weeks I've been immersed with the new and very addicting computer roleplaying slash strategy game, King's Bounty: The Legend. It's the sequel to New World Computing's Kings Bounty, the game that eventually inspired the Heroes of Might & Magic series. I like the new King's Bounty better than any of the HoMM installments though, with its focus on single player play and more exploration and roleplaying quests. This means you visit towns but you don't have to think about an enemy hero conquering it later, and there's no need to wait in between turns as enemy heroes act. I've done a lot of stuff in the game already, and there's still so much to do...

Still haven't finished Mother 3.

I joined NaNoWriMo 2008, but I haven't written a word yet!

Just today, on the commute home, I fired up Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords on my DS Lite yet again--that incredible mixture of connect-three and RPG which I wasn't able to finish before. Right now, it's calling me, even with a lot of other games still on the backlog. Two notable ones being DragonQuest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, an awesome remake of the hardcore Japanese console RPG, in which I'm at very last chapter; and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Objection!) where I'm currently trying to solve that concert murder...

I hope to run D&D 4E before the year is out.

Oh, and I just saw the 2-episode premiere of Legend of the Seeker--Raimi's new fantasy series for TV (finally another one, and HBO's A Song of Ice and Fire is just around the corner too!)--and it was fucking awesome. Finally, a show on TV that's not afraid of taking on all of the tropes of an EPIC FUCKING FANTASY. Here's to looking forward to the rest of the season!

Sigh. So many games, so little time...
