I know I know. I haven't been updating my blog this month like I should. I truly apologize but July has been an awful month and I just have had too many problems to deal with. It's been one thing after another. I can't wait to see the end of July. I will not miss this month at all. I promise, in August I will do some major updating. Just bear with me till then.

As I said, July has been a bad month. My mom was admitted to the hospital the 30th of June with a very serious condition. She was released July 4th. But she had to still have surgery to fully rectify the problem. She had the surgery yesterday and is slowly recovering. I myself am getting over a bad concussion. It happened Monday and I am still seeing double. July has just totally sucked. So I will see you all in August. Have a great weekend.

A Really Great Game

I just finished playing the PC version of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express and I totally loved it. It's an awesome game. But if you think you know the story, think again. This version has a surprise ending you won't be prepared for. It will not only shock you, bust just might make you cry.

You play from the viewpoint of a totally new character named Antoinette Marceau. You're character works for the train company and due to circumstances has to investigate a murder aboard the train after Hercule Poirot is injured. You must become the world famous detective's eyes and ears. And, the passengers are not the only suspects. Everyone, barring yourself and Poirot could be the killer...or killers.

You get to walk around and view not only the spectacular luxury locomotive, but several train stations and the snowy landscape. David Suchet, who long played the role of Hercule Poirot in England, lends his voice to the character of Poirot for the game. And he's absolutely wonderful and funny in the part. His conversations with your character will leave you in stitches.

This game is well worth getting. I absolutely loved it and will play it again many times. I give this game 5 Stars!
