Almost at Desert Bridge

Sorry for not updating – first I had the flu, then a piece of my filling broke off and dug itself into my gums. Thankfully, while the whole thing was unpleasant, the damage to the filling itself was not severe. The dentist removed the sliver from my gums today, and I have another appointment in a couple of weeks. I was rather worried, I have to say – as long-time readers of this blog know, I had some rather extreme problems with my teeth a while back, and I’d rather not repeat the experience.

What is hopefully the final beta for Desert Bridge has been sent to the testers. If nothing major crops up, the game will be out in about a week or so.

I need to write an article on Fallout 3. I’m a huge fan of the first two games, but this one has had me going back and forth between total fun and cursing the designers for being the greatest idiots on the planet. Having now played through all five minutes of the main plot, I feel quite offended by the way it’s just cobbled together from the first two games and ultimately amounts to very little. In the end, it’s a fun game – if way too short – but they shouldn’t have called it Fallout. It only has 30% of what makes Fallout what it is. (More on this soon. I hope.)
