Pondering the Imponderable

Pretty soon, I'm going to have a brief power outage for the last time. They are moving my end of the block to a new transformer since the old one just couldn't keep up with all the houses it was attached to. On hot weekends, I'd hear my UPS clicking in and out as it tried to smooth out the power. When there's a bit too much drain, my monitor gets this lovely wobble, making me feel like I rode the Twist and Puke at the carnival too long. Thankfully, it's nice and cool here today so we won't have to miss the air conditioning.

In actual gaming news, here are the games I'm most looking forward to: 5) Quake IV (a ways off, I grant you), 4) NWN: Hordes of the Underdark, 3) Unreal Tournament 2004, 2) Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, 1) DOOM3. The only reason I don't like Half-Life 2 is because I seriously doubt that I'm going to be able to play it through WineX, at least not without a major system upgrade.

J.t.Qbe comments: My list would be: 1) The Temple of Elemental Evil, 2) Gothic II, 3). . . um, I guess that's it. It's kind of a slim year for games.

The Master comments: I'm looking forward to 1) Doom 3, 2) Deus Ex 2, 3) UT2K4. I'm just not sure about Half-Life 2. I'm QUITE sure I'll need a Cray to run that sucker. You practically need a Cray for HL 1.
