Dante's Inferno - PS3

Wow, what a game. Very similar to God of War, but better. Great story and graphics, seems fun. You play as Dante, a soldier duped by the church into committing horrendous sins during the crusades. Now, faced with death, he battles the Grim Reaper for his soul. His wife is killed and taken to hell, Dante follows in hope of rescuing his bride.
I like the mechanics of the game. It's hack and slash with a bit of some strategy. Your magic has two sides, evil and good. You can enhance either side to your liking. I may have to pick this up someday. Too many good games on the PS3...

Independence Day Independence Day by Richard Ford

Frank, a typical man, struggling to recover from his divorce and currently failed loves. Making his way to visit his troubled son during the independence day weekend. Frank is a former sports writer, now Realtor and part business owner of a root beer stand. His last realtor girlfriend, a young african american girl he worked with, was murdered. An occasional fuck buddy named shelly just rejected him. I am on page 224 and he still hasn't seen his son yet. I am reading this book because it was recommended by one of the hotties from Tegan and Sara. It is beautifully written, but lackluster plotwise. View all my reviews >>
