Signs of the times

Yet another sign of the merry-ness of this season is the steady shift of torrent traffic from predominantly porn to Christmas songs. Speaking of, there are some pretty good albums and custom compilations going around these days. I myself downl-… bought a four CD set of merry tunes for this year. Hopefully the more mellow tones of choirs and the soothing voices of various female performers as they whisper ‘White Christmas’ will save my fingers from any more damage, brought on by my previous playlist of three albums of Disturbed. I just couldn’t stop myself from drumming my fingers onto whatever happened to be close. That and there has been many a fierce battle between me and my keyboard in the course of playing ‘Racedriver : GRID’.

That brings me to my next point(!), which is – Play Racedriver GRID. It looks bloody brilliant, and is guaranteed to be more fun than… something very funny. But stay away if you prefer the more arcade-ish environments of Need for Speed. This one has a much grittier feeling to it. The developers, Codemasters, are the same guys who made the Colin McRae series. And I assume their marketing engine is crap. If they had to advertise McDonalds, they’d have a motto like “Sliced Cow with Vegetables”, and as I read somewhere, KFC would be “Warm Dead Bird”. They should’ve just stuck a little label on all the NFS:Undercover boxes saying “Don’t like this game? Thought so. But THIS instead – [pic]”.

This post was in draft for two days, and as I finish this up, I’m sick again. Not just a common cold either. I’m pretty sure it’s the Bubonic Plague. Let’s see…. “Ring round the rosies(?), pocket full of posies, we all fall down….”

Or it could just be a fever.
