Killing Zombies

So, Brenda yelled at me for not posting for awhile. I apologize, it's been a busy couple of weeks. Today is brought to you by the letter "Z", for Zombies.

I finally have my xbox 360 and have been looking for games to play. It was suggested I try Left 4 Dead, and so armed with my Blockbuster Game Pass I rented it. And it was FANTASTIC. I played with some friends who are in Australia, and we pretty much kicked some zombie ass. Ok, we really got our asses kicked a few times, but this game rocks.

The graphics are smooth and realistic. The sound is great and the characters are pretty diverse. I played single player mode, and it was ok. The bots do a good job of covering you and not shooting you in the back, but you have to take the lead, which sucks when you are hurting and are about to die.

All in all, it was a good game, but the multiplayer mode is what makes this game from good to great.

Joss is My God

So, after a fun week in Missouri (I’ll blog about that later when I am at my home computer complete with pictures) I find myself cursing Brenda’s name. Why?

Because she got me hooked on another Joss Whedon project- Firefly. Yes, I know it’s sacrilegious to call myself a Whedon fan and not have seen it. I really have no excuse. I just never got around to it. So, I spent all last weekend watching it, plus the movie Serenity.


I am pretty glad that I didn’t watch it when it came on though. From what I hear Fox pretty much F*ed it up by showing episodes out of order and moving it around and basically making an ass of themselves. They thought it was dead in the water.

Shows what Fox knows.

It came roaring back on DVD and people are STILL fascinated by the world he created. And, of course, so am I. I ordered the DVD’s on Netflix so I can watch them again more slowly, and with commentary. I hear it’s hilarious.

Next up- Dollhouse. I just saw the new trailer and it looks awesome. And of course, it stars Eliza Dushku, aka Faith from BTVS. I’m already in love with it.

Just don’t F it up Fox.
