Knytt stories

Normally, I’m not that big into computer games. Like I said before, I have the Harry Potters (mostly out of loyalty, but they’re still pretty fun), the Sims, and then your basic solitaire, hearts, etc.

But I’ve recently gotten hooked on Knytt Stories – it’s 2D, so it’s sort of…retro, I guess, but it’s fun and the minimalist graphics are cool and the music’s really nice and it’s fun AND, although I haven’t tried it out yet, you can design your own level, which is neat. It’s free – you just go there and it’ll link you to places you can download it (I’m not sure why the actual designer doesn’t offer downloads, but there you go). There are extra levels you can download, but I haven’t been able to figure out how to load them into the game yet… But I like it – it’s easy enough that you don’t get frustrated, but there are enough places to explore that you don’t get bored.

I like it. 🙂

Computer cagematch; Or…

…my PC just isn’t as sexy as Justin Long a Mac.

Okay everybody out there in computerland. I’m hoping to harness the power of the internet! Mwahahahahahaha!

No, seriously.

Everybody who sees this post (whether I know you or not), please tell me

  • if you use Mac or PC,
  • what you like or don’t like about whichever one you use,
  • desktop (what I have – PC) vs. laptop (what I want – Mac), and
  • anything else you think I should know before I commit. 

And then find your spouse/significant other/friend/roommate/person down the hall/some guy walking past your window and tell me what THEY think!

I have to warn you, I’m this close to buying the Mac, so those of you who are PCers have your work cut out for you.

p.s. – Bonus points to anybody who used to have a PC and made the switch over to Mac – I’m still not really clear on what happens to my printer, my scanner, or any programs that I have on my PC that I’d like to run on a Mac (mostly this is games (Harry Potter, Sims, Knytt – oh, my god, Knytt – that is a-whole-nother post) and the occasional historical version of WordPerfect unless I can be convinced otherwise)…

Please! Help me! Educate me!
