I finished the single player hard difficulty run through of TS:FP. There's an escort mission near the end that was a huge pain, but for the most part, it wasn't too bad.
My brother jumped online for some more Killing Floor. When you're in the middle of a hallway holding back a wave of monsters with your chain saw, and the guy next to you whacks a guy with their fire axe and everything goes slo-mo, that's awesome. When that guy is your brother, that's an extra level of "$*#^ YEAH!"
I'm halfway through the first Republic Commando book. I like the consistent reality of books. If the author makes you really curious about something, chances are they'll explain it later. It's so much nicer than normal reality, where you often go your entire life without ever knowing why things happened as they did.
I'm wondering about the wisdom of my shirt project though. I have this idea in my head about what a Republic Commando 2 game could be, but to be honest, I haven't even watched Episode 3. Maybe Order 66 (the order for the clones to turn on the Jedi) turned Delta Squad into jerks, and I really don't want to see any more of them. Personally, I wouldn't mind a game contradicting any prequel, but I also know it would never get made, and the game I want would be not just a fever dream, but a scary, crazy fever dream. I try to draw the line at scary, crazy. I'll ask Chris to bring Episode 3 by, and I'll read the rest of the books quickly.
