75% off
April 19, 2008

This is the first year that Meredith and I have gone to Adventure Guide's 75% off sale.

They have a few racks of clothing, and a pile of shoes, all at 75% off. Between the two of us, we found over $300 of great stuff, which normally would have cost us $1200. Wow.

I think we'll come back in future years!

Forza Motorsport 2
June 19, 2007

Yesterday as I opened our mail box I was greeted by a bubble wrapped copy of Forza Motorsport 2. Back in November, the Xbox 360 I won was supposed to come with this game, but due to the game being finished several months later than they had anticipated, it only arrived now! While the visuals are nothing the write home about, the realism factor is a little mind blowing, and I love that you can race everday cars made by Honda, Acura, Toyota, Ford, etc. I like how they've organized all of the cars into classes: What a difference to race a Ford Focus and then to switch to a formula 1 racing car. I've never been that excited about car races on TV, but driving a formula 1 car in this sim has given me a real appreciation for the beasts that these cars are.

Startcraft II
May 30, 2007

Blizzard Entertainment has done it again... get ready for Starcraft II, the bigger, badder version of the original. The intro video that I saw a week ago was mind blowing. The visuals are very enticing and the game play looks as good as ever. I'm actually a little scared; do I really want to get addicted to another RTS?
