I should make an update, I suppose. So I’ll cover the positives first. I picked up a copy of Alice: Madness Returns, and I’ve played about 2% of it according to my stats. What I’ve seen so far is really different from the first game. It’s evolved, and the use of cinematic cut scenes with paper puppets sets is really intense, at times even gory. Yet the game is also very pretty. The first game feels very boxy and dated after spending just a few minutes exploring the new locations. The first shots of London and its characters show off the game engine nicely, but then you get to Wonderland, and…my gosh, it’s breathtaking.
In Teen Wolf, the alpha was revealed, and my wild guess was totally wrong. (No, I’m not going to spoil this for people coming to the show late. You deserve a chance to enjoy the mystery too.) But I’m not disappointed by who it is, and I am in fact antsy to get the next episode. Really cannot gush strongly enough about this show, peoples.
My diet and exercise are working to trim me down. When I started, I looked skinny in photos, but if I smacked my tummy, the fat rippled around to my butt and all the way down to my knees. People often can’t grasp that a skinny person can become too fat and no one notices. But as I gain fat, I lose muscle. So for a while, even I have trouble telling when I’m starting to pig out.
But when I smack my belly now, only my belly jiggles. My thighs are all mucle again, and my butt looks fantastic. (^_^) This progress is in spite of all the bad days where I laid on the couch in agony from weather shifts. So I have to say, the Kinect was a great purchase for me, and it’s really helping me to get back in shape.
