Re: What games are you playing currently?
ODST was a great game, with a very different atmosphere from the other titles. I very much liked the sense of isolation you have in the hub world, being all alone against the Covenant occupation trying to find your team. Sometimes sneaking away from the enemy is a better choice in ODST than a full-on, Spartan-esque assault.
Going to do a re-playthrough of ODST once I'm back from Munich to get a more immediate contrast to Reach - and some more screen time with the Firefly cast (just finished re-watching all the episodes and as usual, I feel the phantom pain of a season 2 that never happened
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
