I expected Castle Crashers to be mostly Alien Hominid but a tad different. About the only real similarity they share is the art style and an unnerving difficulty, but Castle Crashers is easily the superior game. Castle Crashers is your standard side-scroller beat em up with some very polished, fast-paced gameplay and a nice quasi-RPG feeling. It’s got some vile, nasty humor in there that I didn’t appreciate, but I’m willing to overlook one disgusting level in light of the very fun multiplayer action. Bri came over and we did some two-player (after becoming frustrated with Mario Kart, which has become nigh impossible), and even she got into it. Now I just need to find some people who want to give online a shot.
Dexter: Season 2 is considerably different than season 1. The most noted difference is the almost lack of killing, which is surprising coming from a show whose main selling point is that its main character is a serial killer. This season focuses mostly on the hunt for our killer as he tries to evade detection while managing relationship problems, dealing with a crazy British fox, and coming to terms with himself… again. Aside from some very high-school pseudo-philosophy, it’s just as good as season 1 if not quite as humorous.
Also picked up Californication on a whim and some basic magic books. I’ve only glanced at the books and watched a few episodes of Californication, but I’m liking what I see on both fronts.
I’m just talking to your husband up there.
