What I Done Did on Sunday.

Dammit, Nintendo, stop being such a cocktease. Either translate the fucking game or don’t.

So I’ve been in a Halo 3 haze, mostly… been playing it quite a lot, online and stuff. The Tyrants played on Sunday, and it was every bit as awesome as I thought it would be… we played Rocket Race (which we should try split-screen. It’d probably still be fun with two teams of two) and Infection and Pirate Ship… it was good times, yes indeed. There was only one moment worth capturing on video or whatnot, for me anyway, so I did, if you wanna look at my file share or something.
Anyway, it’s still pretty fun in it’s Halo 3 way, and I expect to enjoy playing multiplayer with the Talking Tyrants for some time to come.

Spaeth and I also went to the Lorwyn prerelease yesterday, and lost as per usual. My first impressions of the set are pretty positive. It was a lot of fun… besides the Planeswalker cards, which are unintuitive and basically bullshit. I really don’t know what they were thinking. Granted, I’m no tourney player, but I can’t see any serious deck not running Planeswalkers of their color(s). They’re just crazy powerful and can only easily be dealt with by spells that affect permanents (as opposed to spells that affect creatures, etc, which are more likely) like Boomerang or Desert Twister… I don’t know…
Oh, I wanted to pick up Dunwich Horror while I was at the game store, but they didn’t have it… so I ended up getting the Traders and Builders expansion for Carcassonne instead. I’ll let you know how that plays soon as I play it.

Plan for the rest of the week, in vagueries: Write Paper, Stick lots of little yellow stickers on things, play Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.
