Assassin's Creed 1

Written by Strategist on the 1st of December 2012 at 05:31

I was in a bookstore yesterday, and I came over the line-up of the entire Assassin's Creed book series. So I had to buy one of the books to check out. I won't be able to read the book until at least after my exams, however once I've read my purchase, which was the first in the series, I will share with you my opinions.

Maybe you've read the books already, or tried to?

Autumn sale!

Written by Strategist on the 21st of November 2012 at 18:57

You can hardly find a person that could care less than me whenever there's a sale somewhere in some shop. But there is one type of sale I do care about. When there is a sale on games.

Steam has just kicked off their Autumn Sale and I've already bought four titles for the neat sum of 32.81 Euros. I've got mixed feeling about this as I still have titles on my Steam account from Steam's last big sale that I haven't even installed or played yet. But these are once more good offers, on good games, that I've wanted for a long time. So what could I do, other than bite the grass. It is in fact greener.

Worst of all however is the fact that I won't be able to try out any of these titles for a few weeks, for fear of diving in and not surfacing again before the exams take me by surprise.

Autumn sale!

Do you ever buy games on sale, primarily because they're on sale?

Have you tried Desert Bus?

Have you tried Desert Bus?

You may have heard about this game. It's possibly the most meaningless game ever.

Desert Bus is about driving a bus at 45 mph from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada, and back again. In real time. One trip takes hours, and gives you one point.

Coincidentally I remembered this game a couple weeks ago and I googled it. Only to find out that right now, a charity is going on where they play the game Live to collect money for a charity, Child's Play.

If countless hours of singularity is your cup of tea, check out the live video of the event. You can also check out the web page for their charity. http://desertbus.org/

The game can be played in your browser on your computer. Or buy the game on your Iphone or Android phone, where the proceeds go to Child's Play.

If you're the type that likes to drive legally and follow traffic rules when playing GTA sometimes, then this might be the game for you.

Obama - four more years

Obama - four more years

All the numbers all but show that Obama has definitely been re-elected across the pond. He hasn't yet come out on the podium to receive the celebration, but there's little chance for Romney to win now. It's a relief not to see Bishop Romney get elected.

It was a rather boring show to follow the polls come in. I watched it on both PBS and national television here in Norway, as well as following the chatter on Twitter.

Even if I didn't get too excited about the result I am happy about the outcome. Now I'm going to see if I can catch Obama's speech, and then I'll catch a couple hours of sleep.

Did you watch the election, and what did you think of the result?

Remember, remember...

..the fifth of November. The gunpowder treason and plot...

It is bonfire night today, and on this occasion I have ordered myself a Guy Fawkes mask from the movie V for Vendetta. However it has not yet arrived.
To mark this day I have decided to watch the movie V for Vendetta and to read about Guy Fawkes. As there is no tradition for celebrating this day here in Norway there is not much else to do. I don't have the space or the materials to fire up a bonfire on my own.

Do you celebrate Guy Fawkes Night where you are and have you planned something special for tonight?
