The Media Report

Reading: Mostly RPG stuff (Steve Kenson's The Retconquest for Icons, which would be a great first adventure for any super-hero team - the first of the Power Profiles for M&M - some Champions stuff to help me get ready to make a character.) Plus comics - the last Star Wars: Legacy trade came out, so it's time for Cade Skywalker and Darth Krayt to have a last showdown and if Cade will finally fall to the Dark Side. I'm glad the story got to have an ending, and it doesn't feel particularly rushed. I'm also looking forward to Ostrander's next Star Wars project.

Gaming With Pixels: Jack got some racing games for Christmas (Split/Second and Burnout Paradise), which I've been playing. I never liked racing games before, but I like these.

Gaming With Dice: Bailed on the Tuesday Owlcon Playtest due to extreme crankytude. Still working on a character for Champions. Originally, I was going to make a mashup of Ben 10 and Dial H for Hero character, but even with the Hero Designer software, it felt too much like doing my taxes to make just one character, so I'm going to pick a concept that I can stick with. I'm probably going to wait until the rest of the gang has their concepts down and pick one that doesn't overlap. Based on what I've seen so far, it may be that I'm going to be the straight man in a gang of oddball heroes.

Watching: Lots of Deep Space 9 on netflix.
