On The Game Front

Yes, I finally got Devastation to work for me. Basic review: very pretty, very smooth, fairly boring. Standard first-person shooter with a storyline that gives it an excuse for why you are running through areas, shooting constantly, until you get to the end. No 'boss' characters that i can tell, just the occasional 'security drone' or something that takes more than the normal number of hits. Shooting is awfully specific; if you aren't perfectly centered, you ain't hitting nothin'. Eh.

I know I haven't posted much this past week or so, and what little i have has been game-related. My apologies, Gentle Readers, but I am presently losing my ever-lovin' mind, and my games are the only release I've got at the moment. Add to that the fact that, with all this unexpected medical shit, we're flat broke, and my mood doesn't exactly increase. So, bear with me, friend, eventually this will all pass...and until then, I have virtual weapon-based aggression therapy.
