Pondering the Imponderable

Kenny Holland did it again! The Red Wings GM managed to snag Cujo aka Curtis Joseph to fill their void in net next year. Looks like they've come to terms with Chris Chelios on the blue line as well. It's a good time to be a Wings fan. Plus, my folks came over from Michigan bearing a large amount of Red Wings swag, including outfits for all three of my boys. Too cool.

In gaming news, I just finished Jedi Knight II for the fourth time. That game is just way too much fun. The key to the replayability (is that a word?) for me is the force powers. You can go back and find new and improved ways to dispatch your enemies. This time I used the Jedi Mind Trick quite a bit. It's about the only "long distance" weapon in your force arsenal. With a level three mind trick you can turn your enemies against themselves. It chops the opposition down into more manageable parts, or just makes them very vulnerable to a well-timed 'saber throw.

I'm trying to resist J.t.'s temptations to get Neverwinter Nights, despite the fact that it seems to be exactly the RPG I've been looking for. If anyone would ever have it on sale for a decent price . . .
