Well, here I am, at the end of another weekend. It’s been relatively slow, for the most part, other than a couple of things yesterday. Still, I do have to admit that it has been rather relaxing.
Among the things I did yesterday was finally introduce Jenn to online kombat. She had just gotten Mortal Kombat: Armageddon a couple of days ago, and we decided to both get onto PS2 online to try and play against each other. Before long we were using random select, as she wasn’t too familiar with most of the kombatants and I wanted to give her a fighting chance, so to speak. However, most of the matches ended up ending with the connection being lost, so we were getting rather frustrated. (At the time, my friend George was uploading a demo of Supreme Commander to my FTP server, so there were some bandwidth issues…) Anyway, we decided to play some Motor Kombat instead, and had a great deal of fun (as it required less bandwidth). We’ll probably try again in a couple of days, once she gets some time away from work and comics. :-)
Also, one of my favorite Star Trek episodes got the remaster treatment, and was aired last night. The episode was “The Doomsday Machine”, where the Enterprise finds the wreckage of the Constellation and has to fight off this almost-invincible planet killer. The reason I had been waiting for this episode is because it’s one of the most special effects heavy episodes of the original series, and was very interested in seeing how it would look updated. I wasn’t disappointed; it came out looking REALLY nice, and I’ll have to consider picking it up when it comes out on DVD. :-)
I did find a bit of annoying information earlier today. Apparently Apple has already sent my iPod back, saying they found nothing wrong with it. I’m hoping that’s not the case, as I’m pretty damn sure the battery in it is dead. *sigh* I’ll have it back in a few days, so I’ll check then. Ah, well… I can still use it with a charger (either at home or in the car) when I use it.
This week should be more of the same old, same old, methinks. Ah, well. I’ll probably pick up an Xbox Live Gold membership at some point this week (I had thought of picking up Justice League Heroes, but it’s not playable on Xbox 360 yet), as well as finally try out this Supreme Commander demo. Not to mention… well, work, work, and more work.
Oh, well. We’ll see how it goes.
