About fricking time...

So I finally managed to finish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. I'm sure I'm one of the last souls on the planet to have gotten the book on the day it came out and took so long to finish it ;)

I've been on a reading spree actually...all my backlogged books are done and brand new ones are waiting to be read.

Woohoo. More reading.

Apart from reading, gaming takes up a bit of time as well. Assassin's Creed is one of the best games I've ever played. Ever. Totally amazing gameplay and equally well written story. On the PS3, with a Sony 32" Bravia to boot...at 1080p it's just brilliant :D

And then there's GTA4. Nico Bellic. My Man. Slick, cool. Compared to the last GTA I played...this is just insanely cooler. I don't like the graphics much though, I'm sure Rockstar could have done better (I'm biased after Assassin's Creed), but so far, I'm hooked. With things like 24 hrs functioning train networks...ability to hail cabs...go bowling or play darts, go out on a date...just amazing how they've worked to make the game as close to reality as possible. And yeah, Liberty City and the powerboats just kick rear as well.

Haven't had enough time to try out Half-Life 2 though ;) The Orange Box is waiting in the wings...

Yeah. Well..I know a lot of folks who consider them kids books. Rowling's done a pretty decent job with the series though.

I have all the books, haven't opened them, but hopefully our girls will.

Now all you have to do is finish The Godfather;-)

Done with The Godfather ;) Well written!!!

Only after I finished with the Corleones, did I decide to finish Potter.

Read them, you'll like it.

And of course, I only got interested in Potter because reading the books was more fun than reading for my Engineering exams :p

You haven't played a game....
Till you played HL2.
Make sure you turn off the lights and play in a dark dark room.
