* As I mentioned a few days back, I got the Quidditch World Cup game. It's not bad. Not amazingly great and wonderful and magical, but it's fun. However, if I wasn't a HP fan, I'd be bored out of my mind -- it's the extras and the little bits of "video" that makes it worth it, the game itself is pretty boring.
The game is amazingly easy (which is much better than hard, in my opinion). I've had four matches so far. (I'm playing Slytherin, of course.) I won them all, and caught the snitch each time:
Against Ravenclaw: 280-0
Against Hufflepuff: 590-0
Against Gryffindor: 310-10
Having beaten each of the Hogwarts houses, I can now enter the World Cup as some country.
* For Stephen King fans: Wolves of the Calla (the next book in the Dark Tower series) comes out on Tuesday. Woo!
* Animal Crossing: I think I've finally killed off my desire to play. I spent almost six whole hours without a break to try to complete the Halloween task, and even with all that time and a massive supply of in-game items needed for it, I failed. It was so not fun after the first hour or so, but darned it, I wanted to complete the task. Now I hate it and I never want to see it again.
* For anyone with an account or stuff on Catlove: It has been down all weekend. The hosting company claims "hardware issues". I've gotten no email since it went down, so if you're waiting for a reply that's why.
Oh well, time for the next Carnivale ep.
