..s Stupid title limit.
I realised to myself while playing Fable 2 earlier today that it happened to be Halloween. Do you want to know what the first thing I think of when it comes to haloween? Two days until the start of NanoWrimo: (Inter)National Novel Writing Month. 50,000 words and 1 month, 1666 words per day. I have tried it for the past 2 years and failed, will this be the year for me? I've decided to try and restart writing a novel I started a while back. What are the chances of me finishing? I believe about 0.1%. I have 5 pieces of coursework due in before the end of the term which brings that percentage down from last years 1%. And then I've got something on my mind which delays all of that: stupid opposite gender...
Anyway, time for something slightly more interesting. I'm currently downloading the demo of a game I've been waiting for for a very long time: Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts. The Bear and Bird have been favourite characters of mine since I first got my hands on Banjo-Kazooie a year after I was given an N64 as a birthday present. I liked them so much that I even bought an american copy of Banjo-Tooie while I was on holiday because I thought it wouldn't be coming out for a long time in the UK. After trying so hard to get it working on my N64 including numerous importing devices, I noticed a PAL version in the shop window. My mum got so fed up of me trying new things for this one I bought and decided to buy me that version! I have such kind parents, lol. I somehow doubt they'd do that for me now though. Despite popular opinion, I loved Banjo-Tooie much more than Banjo-Kazooie: Larger levels, More moves. I don't care what people say: I like going back to old levels to find new Jiggys with the new moves. And now we get the complete mess-up that Rare has managed to do with Nuts and Bolts.
In my eyes it's only Banjo-Kazooie by name,
but that won't stop it from being a good game.
