Twilight Princess

I've been swayed by all this Nintendo talk to plug in my Wii U gamepad to recharge it, and I got some quality time playing TP recently. I'm five hours in, and finally beat the forest temple with those goddamn butt-monkeys. I had been stuck for a while, but I figured out what I needed to do, and the rest was a lot of fun. Now I think I go back to the village and head to Hyrule field, I can't remember. I never finished this game when I played it the first time on Gamecube.  It's half as ugly as it used to be, and I'm glad of that. 

IN other news I was talking to a Pixlbit guy named Mike about Dragon Age Inquisition. We had both picked it up for the second time recently, and we were comparing it to Origins, etc. Obviously, we both feel Origins was a masterpiece, but we like INquisition as well for what it is. The characters are still great in all the games even if the stories are so-so. I had been playing this on Vita remotely, but I stopped for a few weeks.  Now that I've been talking about it, I'm gonna get back into it. 

I've been playing D&D again with my brother, Chris Yarger, Jesse Miller, and my old roommate from New YOrk. It's been really nice, and I'm sorry I let it go for so long without playing. Just was busy with my books.  But now that I've submitted my latest book to my publisher, I needed some fun.  

Anyway, I hope all of you are doing well.  IT's SLOWLY cooling off here but we've still got some 90 degree days ahead of us.  Grrr.

We got some rain a couple of days ago and its starting to feel like Fall with the exception of a couple of high 80s/low 90s still trying keep summer alive. 

I think I may have bought one of the Dragon Age games for the PS3. If I did I don't think I got far enough into the game.

yeah it's hot here.  I thought we were going to get some rain, but instead we only got lightning. Honestly, I'm looking forward to cooler weather.

I'm glad someone else besides me thought the original Twilight Princess looked ugly.  The HD remake looks so much better.  Twilight Princess isn't my favorite Zelda game, but it has two of my favorite characters in it.  Princess Zelda herself is pretty awesome in that game, and I also like Aglitha. :)

oh man, it was beyond ugly.  It had like a gross film of brown over everything.  :)

You playing DnD over Skype? If so, cool.

nah, people's schedules are too busy to get together like that.  We play over email, which is a lot more flexible.  Let me know if you're interested?  We're separating the group into two parties, one for a fast game and the other for a slower pace.

Interesting. Like the old play-by-mail thing I see in Dragon Magazine.

yes, but faster than that.  Right now, our group is moving pretty fast, with a decent number of emails a day. But that's too fast for two of our players, and we're going to have the fast group, and then the slow group, with a speed not yet determined.  IT's fun man!  I think you'd like it.  You could try the slow group to start, and if you want to go ahead and go fast eventually, you can do that too.  Not everyone responds all the time, and I manage the characters sometimes to keep them in character if they can't respond.

Last time I played DnD, I got a bit silly with it and probably really annoyed my friend. I was thinking that next time I play something like that, I should play Toon! because it's more along my way of thinking right now. I find it hard to take DnD seriously anymore. I keep wanting to make a kind of Robot Chicken episode out of it.

I been thinking in getting the Wii U version of TP for replay rather than going back to my Wii copy. TP is so far my favorite Zelda game and it's among my top 5 of favorite games so far.

I really like it too, Alex.  It's a lot prettier too look at than the old versions, I'll tell u that, and I also appreciate no motion controls. Definitely recommend it.
