But I’ve been playing Spore a lot, hence the absence.
How is it? Mini-review: It’s like going on a date with a cute girl. She’s smart, funny, makes you laugh, very easy to be around her and you two have a blast. Then you take her home at the end of the evening and realize she’s really a man. As in, she actually has male equipment in the crotch locker. So what do you do? Call it off then? Or go through with it anyway so you don’t finish destroying a great date?
That’s what I’m debating.
In non-gaming news, got ourselves a cheap telescope yesterday. Thought I’d get my oldest son interested in science with some hands-on observing time, and we had a great time with it last night. The moon wasn’t up when we went out, unfortunately, but I could show him the disc of Jupiter, a couple of stars and told him how to spot the Milky Way, and what it was.
It was a very nice night that made me warm and fuzzy. One of the most honored and solemn duties of any geek is to pass the torch to future generations. I feel I’ve started doing that last night.
