Pre-Sequel, phantoms and prehistory

So I’ve been playing through a couple of games of late, and haven’t written anything about ’em. Time to rectify that. Strap in if you’re delighted by the second-hand thoughts of my gaming exploits. It’s fun, I assure you.

(It probably isn’t, but bear with me.)


Book review: 100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book V

100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book V.100 Bullets: The Deluxe Edition Book V by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

Well, here we are. The end of the story. The last sprint to the finish. And as expected, there’s blood and boobs and, well, bullets.

And is it satisfying? How can I put this?

Yeah nah.

Mind you, that’s not necessarily unexpected, given the genre we’re knee-deep in the guts of. But still. (more…)

Book review: Journeys

Journeys.Journeys by Stefan Zweig (tr. Will Stone).
My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

I must admit that prior to reading this book, I’d only known Stefan Zweig’s work through its influence on The Grand Budapest Hotel – which is a fairly enormous watering-down of his importance on my part.


Turns out Zweig’s writing is much more than just the inspiration for some lovely cinema. Journeys is a collection of the writer’s work, translated by Will Stone, spanning four decades, all of which specifically relate to travel.
