For the first time in my life, I went dragon boating this evening. Kind of a neat experience, especially given that it's been a number of years since I have been out in a boat on open water. Felt great to get out there again, and I found it challenging. As you might imagine, it takes a great deal of stamina and focus to be decent at it. After a good hour or so of fairly strenuous paddling, I was starting to wear out, and I am far from out of shape lately. Which is good news, I think, but for a few months, it's an awesome way to cross train. Plus, there is a nice sense of camaraderie out there.
I am actually quite excited that Geometry Wars II is coming out in just two more days. It's somewhat sad, yes, but that game is quite a blast, and is great for quick one-off session. It's fairly intense, but can be quite short if you're not good at it. People standing behind me often remark it's near seizure inducing. True, but it looks absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it if you want a basic arcade shooter that is reminiscent of 80's arcade games with an updated feel.
