School is out to kill me. How so? I have eight assignments due between now and May 15th. Isn't that stupid? Yes, yes it is. One of them is my honors thesis, and that was trying to kill me months before. Still, I'm determined to survive. Once March is done, I'll only have five assignments instead of eight. However, thanks to school trying to kill me, my time for games is very limited, so I've only really been playing Final Fantasy I and Retro Game Challenge. Hopefully, I'll finish a game soon. However, I do have two great things to look forward to in April: I'm seeing Neko Case and Jonathan Coulton live, and I know those two concerts are going to be a great form of stress relief.
Eds-wise, I've got two pieces this week. I share some of my experience of tabletop games and why I feel they don't get enough love here at RPGamer, while the dashing JuMeSyn discusses the issue of pirates! ...I mean piracy. Y'arrr!
Also, I need some new songs to groove to. To a certain person whom I know that reads this column - Bruce Springsteen is not something you can shake your groove thing to. I don't think I can listen to the Boss now without thinking of my thesis... or of Battle Royale. Speaking of my thesis, I should probably go work on that, shouldn't I?
