1. Super Stardust HD on the PS3 is a terrific game and it’s probably the best 8 bucks I’ve spent on a game in a long time. Take Geometry Wars and add a few nice features (you keep your weapons when you die, 2 player co-op, and shields) and you’ve got a winner.
2. Speaking of Geometry Wars, Gamespot has a nice preview of the Geometry Wars games for the Wii and DS. Sounds pretty damn cool thus far.
3. Harry Potter for the Wii is shipping from Gamefly today. For those of you keeping track at home, it will be 8 days between shipping my last game and receiving another…. nice.
4. What did you think of the NBA draft? I was happy to look back this morning and see that Alando Tucker went to Phoenix. A system like they run there, should allow him to become a pretty good pro player. The Bucks on the other hand draft a player, Yi Jianlian, that wants nothing to do with being in the state of Wisconsin. Oh, well.
5. I don’t think I mentioned it, but I got a promotion at work this week. The nice thing is that I was already doing the work, now I’m just getting the money that I should have been getting for doing it.
6. I’m going to see a band tonight that a few of my friends play in. I’ve never had a chance to mooch free beer due to connections with a band… so that’s a nice way to start the weekend.
