Mother's Day and gaming news

Especially for kerensky: did you know about this? Activision is developing a new Vampire: the Masquerade game. I have some real reservations about it. 1) It's done using the Half-Life 2 engine, and will be first-person, and 2) it's being done by Troika, the who made the extraordinarily sexist Arcanum. So I'm not exactly hopeful.

In other news, I got two very funny Mother's Day cards for Mom. I do like Papyrus for finding cards. They have a small but very good selection, which means you can find something good fast. Need to get her some flowers tomorrow, which is boring, but she'll like them. No, you have no freakin' idea how hard it is to shop for my mother. She doesn't like massages, there aren't any new books, music CDs, or DVDs that she wants --- she never wants anything. Love her, though. I did call her. I miss her and Dad. Looking forward to seeing 'em in a few weeks.

Oh heck, I sent my mom a sprinkler for mothers day, how absurd is that? She has a tiny little garden at her new house and I know she likes to play garden so a funky LL Bean sprinkler it is!

If she doesn't like massages, perhaps your mom would like a nice spa manicure or having her make up done. If she comes to town you could go together! It's always a good idea to get moms a make up redo every few years so they don't get hooked on glittery blue eye shadow!

Hmm...

What can I say? Not a big fan of first person-rpgs. Thought the Half-life 2 engine is spectacular looking, I think I'm sharing your reservations, Banshee. I mean, I'm willing to give it a chance, of course, but I shan't hold my breath. Hell, I still play NSI's game to this day. Even got a few of my co-workers hooked on it, now that it's been re-issued for $19. That, I'm sure is going to taint my opinion of it. I never played Arcanum, but I do remember you writing about how they cut females out of possible play option by "writing them into the home" in the manual.

Well...we'll see I guess. Gives me some time to buy a PC.
