President's day has come and gone, and while I number among the public sector stiffs who don't get to take the holiday off from work, I find it's not a bad idea to take a moment and reflect on the great (and less great) men who have led the United States through good times and bad. Unless of course you're reading this from somewhere other than the U.S., in which case this day probably has less significance to you than effluvium in a windstorm. In that case, I hope you and your significant other had a lovely Valentine's day, or failing that, a happy Single's Awareness Day.
Being that it is President's day in this country, I hope you'll not mind if I emulate Theodore Roosevelt and use the Bully Pulpit of the Cblog recaps to plug my own project. Based on the response I got to the idea of a Pokemon tournament, I've drawn up rules and started a forum thread for those who would like to participate. I need more people to sign up, though. As of right now, I have less than 8 people who've given me their information, which would make for a rather short tourney. I think it could be a lot of fun, but this will only work if people are willing to meet me halfway. If beating living elemental hell out of adorably marketable creatures is something that appeals to you, why not sign up via one of the above links, or send me an e-mail? Signups will close at the end of this weekend... This is the last you'll hear from me on the subject in this space.
I played through and completed the PS3 version of Bioshock over the last week, playing the role of a goody-two-shoes sistersaver from beginning to end. I'm curious to know how things play out if you play the role of a totmunching bastard, but I think I'll wait and cleanse my palette with another game before returning to the morally murky depths of Rapture. I do have a question for the community though... has anyone downloaded and played through the DLC for this game, and in your opinion is it worth it? I may be wrong, but I don't remember a Destructoid review on the downloadable stuff. Reviews have been strangely difficult to come by elsewhere, as well.
I'm sure you've had enough of my prattle at this point. Recaps, I choose you!
