How was your Christmas? Mine was spent digging out of a foot and a half of snow, and eating a lot of ham.
I got a few movies as presents: The Star Wars Trilogy, Hero, and Spiderman 2. I also received the last two Halo books that I've been dying to read. Watched Spiderman 2 last night with the 'Spidey Sense' popup trivia track. Some of it was interesting, but it seemed like most of the time they were digging for info. I would have much rather had more stuff about the actual production than to hear about the stage history of the actress who plays Aunt May.
Before the holidays, we picked up the extended version of Return of the King. That means we have all 6 releases. We're a little geeked when it comes to LOTR.
Game-wise, the holidays have been sparse. I did find time to download and play the Half-Life 2 demo. Pretty cool stuff, although on my machine at home the detail has to be turned down so much that it looks little better than HL1. At work, however, it's pristine. I will be getting that over Steam soon. Yes, soon....
