Since work has been a little slow lately (thanks a lot, NIC!) I've had to find some websites to help KILL some time (now read the title of this post again. I'll wait. . . .HA! See? I'm funny late at night! Tee-hee! . . . .I should go to sleep now).
So here are some new favorites that I've discovered:
1. Falling Sand - This game is so simple, and yet it's so fascinating when you're bored! 2. Lunchtimers - A room favorite. Fight/Team-up with other people online to spell things or complete a puzzle. 3. Samorost - One of those fun problem solving games with fun graphics. And here's part two.
Arrival seems very plausible, which is why it works. It feels like a realistic response to an extra-terrestrial encounter. This isn't an action-packed alien invasion blockbuster -- it's a deep-thinking drama about trying to understand the incomprehensible. Amy Adams carries this movie, and Jeremy Renner isn't annoying. This is slow, but smart science fiction.
