  1. Probably gonna be playing some GTAIV and Oblivion (just getting into Knights of the Nine). Wouldn’t mind picking up Lego Indy either.

  2. Just hit the National Lakeshore for camping last week with the misses (her first time no less), Age of Conan for me this weekend, and WoW for raids.

  3. Playing some old school SNES games. Chrono Trigger and the English translation of Star Ocean. I felt the need to play some old school games, so I am doing just that.

  4. “In my opinion, Indy IV had more than an hours worth of classic Indy sandwiched between two slices of Star Wars prequel bread.”

    That sounds about right. 🙂

  5. Indy 4 was much more like Temple of Doom. Did anyone else notice he was fist fighting for half an hour straight and almost nobody got hurt except for the folks killed by ants?

  6. Princess, given that we have similar movie tastes, I suspect you will find it as enjoyable as I did – that is to say a very nice popcorn flick that was lots of fun. 🙂
