Hello to all my friends, old and new.The weekend is almost over here in the US as I write this. I hope all had an eventful one and a safe one. For those of you who areoff school for the time, have fun and enjoy the coming Summer(it's in 2 days) for those not on break or who are working-well--try to make the most of it. I want to start by saying that I hope all the Father's out there had a great Father's Day! The Mother may oftentime be the backbone behind the family, but if that'd the case the father is the driving force behind it.This is not always true but is a lot of times.(A lot of time is reversed)
As for the Anniversary part today was my 30th ANNIVERSARY!!! We had gone steady for 3 years before we got married so it seems as if 30 years was some time ago.And ther is very little I would have changed in those 30 years. i oftentime give folks advice and one of the pieces of advise I give is "Try your best to live life with no regrets". I have always practiced what I preach.There are no -do-overs. No"Continute form last save point?" in life.The moment is here , it is gone. I can parapharse "Carpe Diem" but there are others of you who can say it much better!
This ties into gaming how? Ahh glad you asked that. Well my daughter got me a very nice hardbound book for Father's day. "1001 Video Games you should play before you die". I have only glanced at it a bit but I'm alreadsy amazed at the number of titles I have played and forgotten about. Mainly in the Atari 2600 and Atari Computing days.Asteroids is in there but not the 2600 version, the authentic Atari Arcade version.Good!I would recommend this book if not for reading them as a book of reference. It starts with the Earliest titles made and goes to 2010.
My son got me "Dragon Quest V Hand of the Heavenly Bride" for the DS for the holiday. It's the only DQ/DW I didn't have.I'm in the middle of DQ VI right now so this one may have to wait. But still very nice!
For Anniversary I gave my wife 3 Troll Beads with Diamonds encased in them. One white, one black, one pink.She was very pleased. I received Chobits, the complete Collection on Blu-ray. Hunted the Demon's Forge(with Assasain's Pack) and inFamous 2.And I was happy. All in all a very nice weekend.I had considered 30 to be an inportant anniversary which is why we a litle more overboard than what we should have.
I started Hunted tonight. I like it so far, it's Bethesada, what's not to like? It not quite Diablo but it will feed your hunger while you waiting for Diablo 3 to come(if it ever does).And since I have beat inFamous I can start the second title without skipping any backstory parts.
Sorry for the long blog--AGAIN! I wrote along on last time and didn't get many responses. Rut I appreciate those that did and your opinions were well taken. Hope you all made it to the end of this one. Let me know what you're playing and what you have on hold to play. A lot of times in the Summer gamers are outside more and spend less time gaming. but this has so many great release-so out and some coming shortly--that the systems are competing pretty well against the beautiful weather.
Have fun and take care.Stay Young. I have.
