Time for some October Random

It is indeed October. That means...well, a whole lot of stuff--cool stuff, even. Actually, it's all cool stuff.

Fall weather, pumpkin-flavored everything, football, the end of baseball and, of course, Halloween!! This comes as no surprise to those who know me. This year, I put up all of the indoor decorations before October even started...because I was allowed to. :)

But enough of that. I could go on and on about how wonderful Fall is, and how wonderful Halloween is. I mean, it's all so fantastic...see what I mean?

I have chosen, for my creepy game of October, to play Dead Space. I have heard many mixed things about it--that the controls were a bit wonky, that it has potential but inevitably lacks something...but none of things shall stop me. After all, I got it for dirt cheap on Steam. This process has never come around and bitten me in the ass before...ever...let's just forget about Resident Evil 5...and Doom 3...and Amnesia...DAMMIT!!! Okay, so my track record hasn't been so awesome. But, like a river...every once in a great while my luck will change its course! Hopefully it won't require a massive earthquake to do so.

I started it last night and, so far, it seems pretty fun. I'm not sure how creepy or scary it will end up being, but it can't be any worse than Doom 3. Seriously. Continually beating my head against a fire hydrant while a dog is peeing on it isn't worse than Doom 3. Or so I've heard...

Also, if anyone is interested, I am once again participating in Extra Life this year. For those of you unfamiliar, it is a 25-hour gaming marathon. Usually it's 24 hours but it falls on Daylight Saving this year. So I will be playing 25 hours of videogames while trying to raise money for charity--all proceeds go to Children's Hospital. My link is below, and I suck at fundraising so...donate out of pity??
