Reading List

The Pliskin family vacation falls late this year, so I'm off tomorrow to possibly hurricane-swept North Carolina to spend some quality times with the fam. It'll be a nice isolated spot to get some job materials in order and catch up on reading books. (Might pick up that new novel Home, by Marilynne Robinson, too since Gilead was one of my favorite books in recent memory.) My blog posting might be sporadic over the next two weeks, since I'll be taking a holiday from my gruelling schedule of console gaming. But my trusty companion Advance Wars: Dual Strike will be making the trip, along with a copy of Fallout which I've owned for a year yet never played. And that copy of Planescape:Torment isn't going to complete its last third itself. So I'll probably pop by and try to think of something interesting to say to the internet about them over the next few weeks. I'm hoping my girlfriend won't outlevel my green knight while I'm gone, but I think it's inevitable. Castle Crashing will have to resume apace in two weeks.

Pffft, these storms have been nothing but a let down. I was excited for some chaos and destruction and all I got was a puddle. You can always kick it in Asheville.

"Imperial Life in the Emerald City" is currently being developed into a film starring Matt Damon.

@Iroquois Pliskin/l.b. jeffries: Nice to see two great games writers with a connection to North Carolina! Damn fine state. I enjoyed weathering Hannah (in Raleigh) by spending some time with The Darkness.

The Makioka Sisters is, I suppose, good preparation for a potential hurricane...
