Sir! Put that away before you hurt someone!

I’ve finished my ancient Egypt game and start the ancient Greece game. I wasn’t prepared for the long swimming sequences. Still images can’t convey the care with which they have animated this gentleman’s tackle rolling about in his underpants.

I don’t always love the gameplay in the Assassin’s Creed games, but I adore the meticulous open worlds. The first one, set in the Holy Land, was my first taste of just wandering around a cityscape gawping at stuff.

I think the Egypt one was my favorite. It was an enormous playing field, even including freaky sequences set in the Egyptian afterlife. I have just about finished it up, every drop, though.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Tuesday night is muh gaming night…

In the pool?

Oh crap, was it my night to watch Carl?

Too soon?

Yep, the dick winner this round is Currently. That’s a proper noun, evidently, and not an adverb. I don’t recall seeing any other comments from Currently, so, whoever you are, Well Done and Congratulations!

I enjoy the differences in idioms between Over There and Over Here. I think I first saw the term “wedding tackle” at The Register some years back. Hmm. I haven’t looked at that site in a long time…be right back…

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
