Earlier today, I sealed the deal for the mass-market game I mentioned earlier. This should be a great game and get in front of lots of people. Add that to the CCG I’m working on for another company, and it’s going to be a good year for games for me, despite the fact I spend most of my time laboring over novels these days.
In an act of synchronicity, Jeff Babb left a comment on an old post here, inviting me to join him and a bunch of old friends in some online <i>Halo 2</i> mayhem. Sadly, I haven’t even managed to get through <i>Halo 2</i>’s single-player version yet, despite getting the game back in December. I lack not the desire but the time. I’ve barely touched the Xbox here other than to help my son Marty through some tough spots in the <i>Shrek 2</i> or <i>Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom</i> games.
The new gig, coupled with everything else I’m doing, means the Xbox will sit lonely for a while longer. Soon, though, I will conquer that game.
