  1. I usually play TF2 and Red Orchestra, but I've begun to dabble in Lords Management as well.

    If anyone has a PlanetSide 2 beta key that they wouldn't mind parting with, I would be eternally grateful. I am willing to debase myself in any way you see fit to acquire this key. I have no shame. I have no boundaries. I will fulfill your every desire. I will sate appetites that you weren't aware you had. I will be nought but malleable clay for you to shape with your strong, beta key-holding hands. Thanks! Update: I also have a copy of Portal 1, and a coupon for 75% off Portal 2 that I'd be willing to trade for a key.

  4. Books on Sport

    Falling Hard by Mark Law (published in Europe as The Pyjama Game, I believe), is a very engaging story of the author's experiences with judo, which he took up as a man in his fifties. It is a great introduction to the history of the sport, and offers a lot of insight into the mental and physical aspects of the world's most popular martial art.
  5. Music of the games of video

    Vortal Combat from Episode 2 was pretty exceptional. The theme from the original Deus Ex was also great.
  6. Recently completed video games

    Just finished Star Wars: Republic Commando for the first time. It was refreshing that while the player character is a grim, tough, space marine-equivalent, the plot does not make the player the savior of the universe. In Republic Commando, you and your AI squadmates are not tasked with single-handedly winning the war against the separatists, but instead your missions revolve around doing things that commandos would actually be assigned to do, such as sabotage, assassination, and hostage rescue. No one discovers that they have secret powers, or are the chosen one, or must fulfill an ancient prophesy. It was a nice change of pace from what seems to be an increasingly common plot structure.
