It may sound odd, but every fall I have one great anticipation. Last year and the year before, this was a big THUGgish of me, but this year it's bringing spring into my least favourite time of the year and that's a good thing.
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland came out Tuesday. I was a little behind the curve and only heard about it last week ... I'd not quite finished THUG2 and wasn't thinking that the next game would really come out this fall. But, sure enough, here it is. THAW. Ahhh, I can feel the relief of spring air already warming up the stupid freaking chill that fall is bringing.
And, as if that weren't enough for my skateboard fix, one of the guys at the church is going to go to the skatepark with me Saturday and teach me to ollie. I'm psyched.
I started playing last night, of course, and began in story mode. I won't bore those non-gamers out there with a super-long entry, but suffice it to say that
1) best storyline so far
2) no levels is growing on me - they found a way "around" the level thing
3) they actually have a chic in the game who's not a huge-boobed dimwitted idiot ... which makes the huge-boobed dimwitted idiot that we see at the start of the game actually funny instead of pissing me off again.
At any rate, I'm likely to be a bit distracted this weekend by the THAW (and skateboarding in general).

People Say I Have ADHD, But I Think - Hey Look, A Chicken
Well, I'm really glad to read your review. I bought this for my grandson (10) yesterday and saw the very same "big boobed" idiot female at the beginning and was second guessing my decision. Thanks for filling me in and relieving my guilt.October 23, 2005 7:52 AM
