Media Mayhem 2011
Though I have Hulu Plus and Netflix, I am returning to the digitized world of cable after an absence of a year. Equipped with a mongo new television, I am ready to watch shows and game until my eyes bleed. So, what would YOU recommend as some of the best things for me to catch up on?
I’ll give you one example of something on my radar. HBO’s A Game of Thrones is something which went live soon after my digital experiences went dark. I’ll be catching up on it on demand this weekend.
Hit me up. Since we’re fast approaching year’s end, I’m sure we’d all like a recap. Don’t limit it to shows either. I love all sorts of media and I know most of you do as well. List off some good reads, games, whatever–the floor is yours!
Until next time, I bid you, dear reader, adieu!
TV? Homeland on Showtime is a MUST! Plot hooks galore for AoO. Dexter pursuit of the Doomsday Killer is another good one.
Books? Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Opening line):
“Everyone my age remembers where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the contest.” A novel about finding the hidden Easter eggs in OASIS – a massive multiplayer online game that had evolved into a virtual reality. The grand prize? Sole inheritance of the games creator, James Halliday, who was the wealthiest person alive.
I’ll give it some more thought
Video games? Rage – post-apocalytic FPS from ID software…’nuff said.
