I'm not a huge fan of Independence Day. I hate fireworks - especially how my neighbors set them off at 2am for weeks surrounding the date. I'm not a big believer in the historical narrative of American "independence" and "freedom" - after all, slavery ended in England long before America.

Can you almost scratch the top of your knee without bending over? Or do you have trouble getting the change out of the bottom of your pockets?

Okay, that's really more a question of relative torso length, but I am interested and don't want you to have to break out the measuring tape.

Incidentally, I have trouble digging change out of my pockets. My arms are objectively long, since I'm pretty big, but they're short for my body.

See Lamar Gant for long arms:

The drama has been reduced to near catatonic levels of nothingness but it has given me the chance to get caught up with various games. And seeing as it today is already dragging on I'm going to pass some time by writing up some mini-reviews of them.

Well, it was work related. But it involved people who don't work at the same company as me, and beer.

And I didn't get paid to do it.

I went to the igda Vienna chapter meeting.

As intimated previously, I managed to obtain an... extended demo.. of this game.  Fortunately, I needn't concern myself with the morality of that, as it turns out that I already own a legit copy of the beta version.

Please to be telling me what this game is.  If that doesn't trigger your memory then watch this video (3/4 of the way in).

I've played the game before but can't remember the name.
