Yesterday was relaxing. I received a new book in the mail (well, new to me.) The Warhammer 40,000 Necron Codex. Now I'm coming up with a Necron army just for kicks. I already have a Tyrannid army, and I'll likely be pitting them against each other just to get a better feel for them and learn the rules of the game a bit. I might find someone in the area that plays W40K, but even if I do, there is no way I can invest the money and time into purchasing and painting all of the minatures. I'll end up using old Battletech and AD&D figures.

I finished Max Payne 2 - decent game. I'll play it over again once I get a new computer that can actually handle all of the neato gee-whiz coolness of the graphics and sound for the game. I had to drop most of the effects to off or medium to get a decent play speed out of it. *sigh* My 866 just isn't good enough anymore.

I finished Black Mirror some time ago, and installed Firewarrior and played it for a while, but got frustrated with the no-save options and very annoying restart points. If you die, you go back to the beginning of the level, unless you have made it an incredible distance, and then you might end up at the halfway point. If you exit the game, it does NOT save the last waypoint, you start the mission over. How stupid is that? I'll go back to it later. Maybe a patch will improve the level saving.
