Laura handed me one of those Mastercard gift cards yesterday with the instructions that I “blow it.” Not one to argue with a pregnant women, I stopped by Blockbuster today and found that they were selling gently used Xbox games at a 25% discount. The selection was pretty decent, so I passed over Darkwatch, Batman Begins and Burnout: Revenge in favor of the following:
- Sid Meier’s Pirates! – I loved Pirates! Gold on the Sega Genesis, so I jumped at the change to get this new version.
- Brute Force – Miscellaneous G™ and I are running out of cooperative multi-player games, and this one should be good for a few game nights.
- Big Mutha Truckers – What can I say? My inner redneck wanted it.
I also rented the movie Layer Cake, starring Daniel Craig, who is replacing Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Review to follow, I’m sure.
In other news, I’ve had to fire up the snowblower twice in the past two days. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Nothing runs like a Deere.
