Okay…this is what I am going to do. I do believe I am going to make a new blog dedicated to my love of Harry Potter. Mostly for the fact that this is the only place that I could find people who have read and examined the series as much as I have. Here’s the disclaimer: it probably won’t be a reblog blog. Since I am off tomorrow, look for the link tomorrow.
Saying I’m “not really a morning person” is like saying drinking a quart of bleach is “not really that fatal”
I’ve been thinking about the prospect of having children lately. All my life I have been opposed to even the thought of having kids but if the day comes where I do procreate I can gurantee that they will have a father so unlike my own they will be so happy. They will be read to every night so that they can go on all the adventures I have gone on, fall in love with all characters I have, and given every opportunity to find their adventures and worlds that speak to them.
Well, tonight I got to fulfill something for myself that I had almost forgotten was such a part of my life: I got to see Jurassic Park on the big screen. This may not seem like a huge deal to some, but for me it’s much more than that. Jurassic Park was the first movie I ever saw in the theater as a child and it still stands out as one of my earliest memories. As a child, it was seeing “real life” dinosaurs and fostering in me an imagination and appreciation of science. I would go so far as to say that it almost single-handedly created my love for science. I suppose I can give some credit to Back to the Future as well, but I feel that it dealt more with the human and character aspect rather than the hard science. Even the book, Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, was one of the first adult books I read and it goes even further in detail on things, such as Chaos Theory, that I am s till interested in today. But as I sat there, watching Isla Sorna come into view for the first time, it brought back that feeling of childhood wonder that I sometimes forget exists.
Next up is my prostate exam with Captain Hook…
Well, one game that I don’t hear a lot about is Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. It was made by Ninja Theory, the same guys that handled the DMC reboot. Come on! It’s a story based on a classic Chinese tale, but set in a post-apocalyptic version of America…with robots!
For real though, the writing and voice acting on this game are superb and the graphics are gorgeous. You have a strong female and male lead combo that work really well together. The only thing I don’t really like about the game is the repetitive combat. You do the same combo throughout the game and enemies are not varied. The game shines more on platforming than anything, which can be too easy at times. All in all, this game should be tried at least once.
