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.

Thanks, I knew about that game, but for some reason I didn't know it was already out!

As for the characters, it's easy! There's Fran, this bunny amazon thing, and uh......... anyway, yeah. I had fun with FFXII, but ultimately it's another in the pile of FF games that I've sunk 100+ hours into, but never gotten to the end of.

IGF is a fickle mistress.

And Shadowgrounds is awesome. I have a friend who was a programmer on that game--lots of fun!
