Lately I've been wanting to expand my culinary repertoire, so today I picked up some new ingredients at the Indo-Pak grocery in West Chester. I'm going to attempt this chana dal recipe
(minus the tamarind... where would I even get tamarind?). I'm pretty sure I've never had any dal before, but there were *shelves* of it at the Indo-Pak. I'm also using a spice mix to make some tandoori chicken, but the only thing that's new about that is that it's a different kind than usual.
TKDWC wasn't an IGF finalist. I suppose it's not really the kind of game they're interested in anyway.
Nintendo gave me an RMA number and a free shipping label for my hinge-cracked DS Lite last Wednesday. FedEx delivered it on Monday, but Nintendo hasn't acknowledged receiving it yet...
I've been playing a lot of Yoshi's Island DS on my spare, hingeless DS. I spend most of my time on that game doing the same areas over and over, trying for a perfect score. I haven't tried to play the last level yet, and I've only unlocked one extra level. If only there were more Final Fantasy games for the DS, I could waste huge gobs of time in a more Progress Questy way.
Not much gaming going on my PC. I got X3: Reunion off the bargain bin, but I haven't learned how to play yet. The tutorial is either gone or very opaque, and the tutorial section in the manual is definitely missing. I was going to do another playthrough of BioShock now that the update is out, but it won't run. It just displays the little banner and eats CPU until I kill it. As usual I blame the fucking copy protection
I had a lot of fun playing Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor. Ooooldschool gameplay with modern graphics, but not really any replay value, even with the extra character skills in the sequel.
