In other gaming news, I'm powering through Reign. While Greg Stolze doesn't have any specific writer's tells that I could identify, he does make wonderfully readable prose. I'm a hundred pages in and feeling the same as if I'd breezed through twenty pages of any other game. I can already see the appeal—something that I'd not seen in reading all the reviews and discussions online.
Entirely unrelated to the above, my dad just sent me a Facebook friend request. My dad. A man who uses SMS messages solely to forward dirty jokes to his sons, and who has mastered the art of two-finger typing. This surprised me so much simply because I don't have a Facebook page. I realise that I'm probably one of five remaining carbon-based life-forms who doesn't have one, but even so. My dad's doing more social networking than me. Fuck.
