The Dread 7th of July

So, who is going to be a DLair on monday? You've had two days to absorb your 4th of July revelry, now it's time to game!

Incidentally, I'm still waiting on a few more lists for the SABG Top 50...

Steve and I are gaming starting at around 1000 hours, but I expect external responsibilities will keep me from extending into the evening at DL.

Random thoughts:

- Here I Stand probably has the clearest, best written rule set of any wargame I've ever come across. I can't wait to play sometime.

- I'm doing a game culling, disposing/donating of the bottom 10% or so of my game collection. Good riddance, trash!

- Final Fantasy Tactics 2 on the DS is very cool, especially on the hard setting.

- I have three GMT games coming this month: Kutuzov, Napoleonic Wars, and Successors. So many rules to learn... so little time.

- Steve is literally dominating the world at Ticket to Ride on X-Box Live. Out of the 1,500+ players on Live, he was ranked #11 yesterday.

Okay, back to remodeling.

I'm obviously still out of town.

I might be back next weekend.

Did you know there is an Acquire reprint? I went to the FLGS to look for the TTR USA expansion for my dad's birthday and saw that and got that instead. I may have to get in on that game order Tiffany because thats one I want for myself as well. The delay on the RFTG expansion is annoying there though.

Final Fantasy for the PS is one of my all time favorites. I also spent many enjoyable hours playing FFTA. I think Civ Rev might be worth it too but we'll see.

I have FFT for the PS1 (playable on the PS2), but I need to break down and get a PS1 memory card off of E-Bay.

I have the last incarnation of AH Acquire (purple box), which I was lucky enough to score on a buy 2 get 1 free sale at Toys R Us.

Its hard for me to justify $60 on Civ:Rev, when I can play Civ4:BTS with all of its many awesome mods. Heck, I haven't even scratched FFH yet. Of course if I were getting payed to write articles about the game, my perspective would probably be a bit different.

The new Battlefield game seems good, but I already have at least 5 shooters I need to finish, including GTA4, Halo3, Gears of War...

There is a new guy who might show up at DL tomorrow.

1) I will not be there on Monday.

2) I will be putting in the order -- after I figure out what game my old roommate was getting me for my birthday. The one that I wanted is out of stock, so she is getting something else. I just don't know what yet. Once i get that figured out, then the order will go in.

Oh i forgot -- Ben I have a memory card for the PSone that I am not currently using. If you really wanted to play Tactics but didnt wanna buy the memory card I could probably arrange to lend it to you. I doubt with my stupid exam that I will have time to play any of my rpg's (ad if I do i have several for the PS2 anyways so its not an issue)

I'll probably be there a touch later than normal, since Jacqui is working normal hours the next few weeks.

I am finally back online! I will probably arrive around 6:00; see you then.
