I've been working so hard on my publishing, and doing well, I haven't had time for anything else. However, that doesn't mean there isn't a part of my brain that is constantly saying: "OVERWATCH! DOOM! OVERWATCH! DOOM!" I want to buy one of these but I'm worried it will get neglected. The other thing is, I feel like Overwatch is a PC game, so I can play with a mouse, but my computer just overheats these days. Grrr.
I've been taking a vacation this weekend, playing video games and reading comic books, until I dive into my rewrite of my book on Monday. I read another issue of Frank Miller's Dark Knight 3, Alan Moore's "LEague of Extraordinary Gentlemen 1910", and started Grant Morrison's Final Crisis. Dark Knight 3 I like a lot, but I expected I would. People hate Dark Knight 2, but that's not my problem. I loved it. I get Frank Miller. I don't agree with all his creative decisions, but I respect him enough as an artist to let him do his thing. Alan Moore of course is the best, and Extraordinary Gentlemen keeps on going. You know, his mammoth like 2,000 page novel comes out this fall. It's called "Jerusalem" and it seems nuts. I can't wait to read it. As far as Final Crisis, I love Grant Morrison, he's my favorite comic writer (though I think Moore is technically better), but as good as he is at blockbuster entertainment, I wish sometimes the story would slow down for some quiet moments. He moves so fast in his books now, and I wish it was a little slower like his old stuff. New X-Men and Invisibile had some great stuff, and while I still think his writing is fantastic, I wish he lingered more often.
Well the Goodreads.com contest for autographed copies of my book is over, and almost 500 people applied for it! Jeez. Well, I only had it set up for 30 winners, but I'm going to continue doing this one different scales with different books to build up buzz. Now I have to send the fuckers out. I need an intern!
I'm reading this book called "APE - Author, Publisher, Entreprenour" by Guy Kawasaki, an old Apple software evangelist who used to work with Steve Jobs. It's very educational and inspirational. Very helpful for my super plan of self publishing my own books.
Hey guys and girls. I've picked up my 3DS again, which I've been meaning to do, and have been getting back into Etrian Odyssey IV, which is truly a great game. I am stuck on a boss, and have been for months, but I kind of realized I have tons of other stuff I can do and explore, and that's what I've been doing. I love these 1st person dungeon crawlers, and EO is totally the best.
I'm downloading the files for the open beta of Overwatch for PC. Why not? Gonna drink a little beer and play it later today. I'm about to run out and watch the new Kevin Costner movie, Criminal, with my mom. Should be aight.
Hey guys, I just bought the new Master of Orion and 1979 Revolution on Steam. I haven't bought any games for a while, but I've wanted these. Master of Orion is a galactic empire simulator where you manage your planets and star fleets etc as you try to conquer the galaxy. 1979 Revolution is like a Telltale type game that takes place during the Iranian revolution back in 1979.
