GAME OF THRONES!!!
For those of you who haven't heard of it, i'm shocked! It's become quite popular as a show on HBO. I started reading the books long before the HBO series. And let me tell you, what an awesome series of books. I got my Bill hooked on them and my sister as well. If it wasn't for a colleague at work I probably would've ended up reading the books, but it would've been me jumping on the band wagon because of the HBO show lol!
Don't get me wrong, the show is great! I'm currently rereading book 2 because season 2 premiers tonight on HBO, which i actually won't be watching because I will be in bed when it starts (damn work, making me get up at 4:30 in the morning) so thank goodness for on demand :-)
So far there are 5 books, i just finished reading the last one as it just came out not too long ago, and i'm hoping a 6th book is in the works and comes out soon, although it did take the author, George. R.R. Martin, something like 3 years to get this last book out. Fingers crossed it won't take this long to get the 6th book out. I know it won't be this year, but hoping for next year! I highly recommend this book to everyone! It's obviously a fiction, medieval times ish. Sword fights and magical gods and all kinds of good stuff. "Winter is coming"
Ok, so i mentioned games as well in the title of this post! Bill has introduced me to a new video game, for those of you who don't know, i enjoy playing video games. Reading and video games, i could do all day! But anyway, I can never find a game that i like. I'm obsessed with Kingdom Hearts, and haven't really found a game i fully enjoy since then! and i'm so pissed that the newer games are not on PS3 (playstation 3) but on Nintendo DS i think, i just know, it's not on a game console that i have, *sad face*, I have found that i absolutely love the Lego video games, (Batman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter (favorite), Pirates of the Caribbean). i also like call of duty, but i don't play that often. So back to the whole point of this, Bill has hooked me on a game called Borderlands, so much so that i've marked in my calendar the release date of the sequel coming out in September i believe. The graphics are great, really cool, different from games i've played in the past, it's like a comic book. it's first person shooter game essentially, but the cool thing is it's 1 player, a big must, as i want to play with Bill not just watch him play, although i don't always mind that. cause i would much rather watch him play Assassin's Creed than try and play myself! But anyway, Borderlands is great! i even have withdrawals, ok, not really, but sort of. Like today, he's gone today, it's his day with his girls, and we didn't play as much as i would've liked to this weekend, so i'm wanting to play, but i won't without him cause we've started together! so i'll suffer for the next few days til we play! lol
So...watch Game of Thrones, preferably, read the books, but at least check the show out, it's great! and if you like video games, i hope you've played Borderlands cause i <3 it!
