Thoughts while Driving

So, I always tend to think of things that I could blog while I'm driving to or from work, and never manage to actually pen them down (as it were). Here's some of the things I've thought about, which maybe I'll hit up sometime when my wife isn't sick and I'm not trying to get things back together after a week's vacation:

1) Theory on co-operation in video games
2) Thoughts on multiplayer coding (although this will probably have to wait until much later, or not happen at all, since it crosses into the territory of "stuff I do at work that I'm not supposed to talk about".
3) We don't have kids, but thinking ahead about teaching them math as a more abstract concept (using the Chisan-bopp method, however it's spelled, for counting on your fingers)
4) My thoughts on random games that I've played, want to play, or am playing.

Dear Rare:

Why did you put co-operative play into Kameo, but not let us see the story mode or advance the game while we're in it?

Fortunately, we're only borrowing it from a friend, otherwise I'd be much more vexed. I wanted to play through it co-op with my wife. Now we have to swap in single-player to unlock the levels. Sad times.

Why the WoW posts aren't coming.

My wife has a new 360 controller (it is indeed pink). She's been tearing it up in Oblivion for the past few weeks, while I've been playing Halo 3.

I've poked around a bit in WoW myself, upgrading lots of bags and giving Laheth a shirt... and I'm super excited for when 2.3 goes live and I upgrade all my alts to 30 or more.

Oh, and we're nearing the end of our project cycle at work. That hasn't interrupted gaming at all :)

I just wanted everyone to know how much I love my husband...
Our Anniversary was a few days ago. I guess that means we are no longer newly weds *pouts* Our first year went fast but was full of many blessings. A nice house, a beautiful trip to Italy and France, a Wii, a 360, a loving new family, and most of all the many loves and tender moments we've shared together.
He loves me so very much and for the icing on the cake... he is buying me a pink 360 controller! I can't wait to play co-op with him ^_^

How's it going?

Since hitting 70, Coperiana and Laheth have gotten a bit less play-time, and we've been catching up on other things. Since I do so love lists and ramblings, I'll combine them now, for my pleasure:
  • Sonnik is at a very respectable 66 now.
  • I've been crunching for the last week, so I haven't played many games at home.
  • We have our 360 now, and just rented Oblivion, which Goldfire is enjoying today.
  • Halo 3 multiplayer has dominated my lunch hours since it came out (and a bit of at-work dinner breaks), and I finally have a copy to call my own.
  • Our last session of Burning Wheel was... interesting. Almost a total party wipe (unconscious and not dead, fortunately). We'll see how things turn out later.
  • I finished a couple of books. Re-read Soul Music and finished If I Pay Thee Not In Gold, which I was apparently borrowing for over two years. Fancy that.
Alright - the build is nearing completion, so it's back to work for me.
