Between late nights at work, home renovation projects and exams in my Archaeology and Near East courses I’ve had time to pretty much kiss my wife hello, eat dinner, work/study the rest of the day and get 5-6 hours of sleep so there’s not been a lot of extra time for all that much entertainment. I did manage to get some time in to watch an episode or two of NCIS and Castle over the last couple of days and in between my course reading I’ve been trying to sneak in some time to revisit Ed Brubaker’s Catwoman again, a series I really enjoyed several years ago (for the revolutionary effect it had on Selina as a character once more and for the fact that it drips style at every turn). I just finished Selina’s Big Score and hope to work my way through he first couple of dozen issues over the next few weeks. I didn’t forget how good these comics were, but they’re definitely that much better than I remember.
Other than that, I’ve been slowly making my way through Frank Herbert’s Dune on the way to and from work, and managed to find some time to sit down and playUncharted 2’s multi-player demo on the PSN, which is very addicting. I was really excited for the game to release after enjoying the first installment in the series so much and the frantic maps aren’t doing anything to hamper that enthusiasm. So fun! We’ve still got about a week to go before its release and I sure as heck hope I can find some time to immerse myself in the game because by all accounts its a really good one and leagues better than the first (which-in-and-of itself was a blast).
Anyway, if you haven’t checked it out and have access to the Playstation Network then do yourself a favor and fire Uncharted 2’s multi-player up while we await the release on October 13th. All kinds of fun to be had (even when you’re supposed to be doing something more “productive”)!
