Games and Rides
I rented The Outfit for Xbox 360 and didn’t like it. I’m not big on third person games and to make it worse, this one seems juvenile and silly in a lot of respects.
One third person game I’ve liked is the Hitman series, so I rented Hitman: Blood Money for the 360, too. I like it, but I don’t like the camera angles when it is making you watch the “drag a body” or “silent kill” type things. That’s a small annoyance, since it at least gives me the “first person” view option and has the elements I’ve always liked about them: stealth, thought/puzzles, and not just a shoot-em-up.
I had been trying to play Halo2 and it would play ok on the offline version, but couldn’t work on the “Live” version. It would error out. I had bought this one used at Blockbuster and didn’t know it was damaged. By the time I got around to getting my 360 and then playing it, it was 6 months since I bought it. So, I decided to try the repair kit I have for CD/DVDs and it actually worked.
There was an article in the local paper that was done by an AP writer about how my town is dying. I dunno…. but I don’t really have a reason to move anywhere else anyway. So, it looks like me and my town will die together.
Rode the motorcycle today and saw a deer in a field of corn, a flock of turkeys in a big field, a deer beside the road, and a mama deer with 3 fawns in the middle of the road. It was a nice ride overall. Thought about people I’ve known and things I’ve seen.
