Gaming at the beach!

Like I was saying in a previous post I have been playing Etrian Odyssey. I'll admit I was skeptic at first, I mean, I had to draw my own map and everything (old schoooollll) and I wasn't much for dungeon crawlers (I'm probably the only person who didn't like Diablo) but now I can't stop playing this game! I recently went to the beach this weekend for a friends birthday, and I brought along my DS (of course) and played on the beach. I thought I'd at least be able to read some of my book (yes, I'm still reading Eldest, but itching to read the new Harry Potter book) but I was engrossed in leveling up my guys to get to the 7th dungeon.

At least I got some sun.

So anyway, the point is, I can't put the game down long enough to write a review at the moment lol. But, I figure I should put up some reviews of the Brain training games I played in between.

In other news, I was also able to get a 500gb external HD and my brother gave me his old monitor so I now have dual screens!!! I was happy playing Guild Wars on one screen and had Guildwiki with maps on the left side. I'm going to try to learn some 3D programs, so far I've only been able to fool around with a layout program called Quark (I prefer InDesign). If anyone knows of good tutorials or something let me know.

It's always nice to see another HP fan. I picked it up Saturday. I loved it. I finished it in around six hours.

Congrats on the external HD and the Dual monitors! Sweet!

Lol, I know everyone is finishing the new HP book and i find myself having to avoid them so I won't be spoiled on the ending >.< 6 hours huh?.... I wonder how long it would take with gaming in between....

And thanks! I was so happy when both screens lit up O.O

Bee: I LOVE IT! F-O-E! F-O-E! Some guy came up to me in the subway and asked me about it because he was playing it too.... I just wanted him to leave bc I wanted to level up in peace lol....
