Tarkin, and other thoughts

Time for another blog – where would your Saturday be without it, right? It’s been a fairly uneventful week, partially because I’ve already been posting about other stuff I’ve been getting up to. I went to Beeston Castle, I finished reading Heir to the Empire, and I had a very exciting delivery in the mail! Things are kinda slowing down right now, though, as I’m preparing to make a short trip that will no doubt make it to this platform soon enough!

Something that really needs to be mentioned, though, is Yoo Ninja. I discovered this game the other day in the Play Store while looking for interesting free stuff, and I’ve been playing it a lot since! Maybe not as much as Flying Squirrel, which is still my go-to android game for wasting time with, but still – there’s something about Ninja platform games that appeals to me, and while I’m not particularly good at it (I can’t begin to tell you how many groans of anger and dismay have come from me this past week), I find it difficult to stop!

I’ve seen some interesting stuff this week on twitter and G+ about the upcoming new Star Wars books, particularly Tarkin, and I’ve gotta say, I’m kinda mixed about this. It’s got James Luceno writing it, so it’s doubtful that it’ll be bad, but at the same time…I dunno…

I guess I just feel uneasy about it all because of what’s happened to the EU. Whereas before there would have been a certain security in being able to perhaps imagine particular familiar faces cropping up (Daala, anyone?), now we’re a bit at sea. I suppose we’ll see what November brings, anyway.

 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, I’ve also been playing some board games. But that’ll be for another time…
