This week will be it... I can feel it.

This is the week, I swear it will be. This will be the week where the purchase is made and tiny parts of a new PC all make their way out to my house. We just have to get the IRS to hurry up and make that deposit is all. I wonder if they take special rush orders?

Anyway, on the gaming side there still really hasn't been much to talk about. I'm working on lots of things for Ten Ton Hammer, finishing up school, and my first paid design project... so really, I've been keeping quite busy.

I did have Codemasters' Overlord for the 360 last week, but I ended up returning it by the weekend. Not because it was bad by any real stretch of the imagination, but because I realized I don't have time for it right now. I'll be cancelling my Gamefly account before the end of the month until after Conan launches, but there's still time for one or two more game trials before then.

Next up? The Simpsons Game... which I'm greatly looking forward to. I heard the camera is absolute crap, but regardless it's the Simpsons. The yellow family's show houses some of my favorite childhood memories, and some of my favorite NES games to boot, so I'm stoked.

Anyway, that's all I have to report right now. I'm afraid I'm a bit boring leading up to the release of Conan, but hopefully soon we'll have plenty to chat about.

It's only worth a rental... but was it ever worth a rental! That game made me laugh so many times. Play it cooperatively with someone and it's much more fun (laughter is contagious).

I never finished it, but I own the Overlord and have had a lot of fun with it. It's another game that is refreshed by humor. The animations are top-notch (I never dreamed there'd be such endless fun in slaughtering sheep).

The Simpsons game was absolutely awesome. If you're a Simpsons fan you'll love it.

Why are the Simpsons yellow anyways? are they all jaundiced maybe?
