The Long Way Home
You might notice that we flew to PAX in the previous comic and in this one we are driving home. This is not revisionist history for the sake of a cool story. We actually got a car in Seattle and drove it to Los Angeles for reasons I am really not going to get into here. The point is that events occurred and we made a comic about them.
I finished both Deus Ex and the latest Game of Thrones related novel in the same day and it left a gaping hole in my life. I have partially filled said vacancy with a little BloodRayne but, despite the beauty and elegance of the vampire slashing, it is not quite sufficient. It is not a game with a compelling narrative, nor did I expect it to have one. It does have the requisite smooth controls and brutal hacking and slashing. If there is a true flaw in the game, it is that it is simply too difficult. I find myself dying an embarrassingly large number of times and every single level I receive the worst possible rating. It is disheartening, but I fully appreciate that it is my fault for not being better at the game. I want to try harder.
The second half of my plan involves reading a new series while I wait for Mr. Martin to write another book. I have yet to actually read his Dance of Dragons but, as it will not answer any of my questions as to what happens after Feast for Crows, I plan to wait for the next one to be imminent before starting it. I just can’t deal with more cliffhangers. I have Hunger Games on my coffee table. As a teen novel it will be an easier read, but the basis for the story intrigues me.
