Weekend Plans of Nerd Kind (Jan. 30th- Feb. 1st)
TV and MOVIES: Resident Evil: Degeneration. Maybe. Robocop 1-3. Maybe.
GAMES: Fallout 3. Definitely.
BOOKS: Republic Commando: True Colors. Probably.
Wasn't completely happy with the second book, Triple Zero, which had a lot of strong character moments but a weak overarching plot, and ended quite anticlimactically. It sets the stage for True Colors, though, which is even more engrossing than the previous two novels. I can't believe how much emotion Karen Traviss gets into these stories - especially in Kal Skirata's scenes - and I almost dread reading Order 66, which is in the mail from Amazon. That one is going to be a heartbreaker.
