Last night we went to another concert, KT Tunstall
. Not my usual fare, but it's a small price to pay for dragging my better half to all my concerts like Metallica, Five Finger Death Punch, Iron Maiden, Lamb of God and the like. And it wasn't actually too bad ....
On our way back from the concert hall, we passed by GameStop with people lining up around the block for the midnight launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops. (They're probably at home and playing away by now.)
For the past few days, I've been playing Stronghold Kingdoms
, and it's pretty good. It's nowhere near as fast-paced as the actual RTS titles in the franchise, but it's a persistent world with chores/production to be set. Depending on your subscription model (free-to-play or paying), your minions carry out your orders while you are offline.
