Writing...

Hooray! I have set up my Playstation after leaving it to gather dust for a year or so, and bought ICO... So far it's just about my favourite game ever, except possibly Shadow of the Colossus. I don't understand how they could make these games so wonderful - much time is spent just running around, and nothing happens, but it's all so wonderfully designed and animated that I can happily just run up and down some stairs, or ride across parched earth and rolling hills on the best horse ever, following some mysterious birds. For hours. And then something happens which is invariably the most amazing thing...

But am I working? Where are the pictures? No pictures I say! I am still re-writing my Hamster book. That's what it looks like. There...



Actually, I think I may have cracked it today. Might be time to switch projects and bind a new dummy for the new novelty book...
No, some more writing now.

My favorite game is Ratchet And Clank. It's like playing a cartoon.
Great drawings!

I heard that was good!

Katamari Damaci holds an unfortunate fascination over me, I play it very badly but with so much determination that when I go out sometimes the whole world seems like it's all lining up to be rolled into a giant ball... rows of parking cars... trees... houses... queues at the post office... the skyline...

Well, I haven't actually finished the game. I've been hanging out with the bad guy at the end for about three years now.

I only ever finished all the Monkey Island games... and Oblivion (although the expansion pack crashed at some point and made everyone go mad and materialise inside walls and stuff) - I'm incredibly rubbish at computer games. I should have a Wii, really, but I'm worried I might upset the budgies and knock over furniture with the remote.

I've really been wanting a Wii! The music in the ads has me convinced that I need one.
