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.
