You heard me. It’s my new motto and quite possibly the meaning of life.

“Do it the Corey Way or not at all.”

Corey has saved me from yet another 7 working days of netlessness by pulling the strings he pulls so well, getting me reprovisioned in a matter of hours. DSL is back and running sweet. *round of applause*

In anticipation of a weekend with no ne t which, while it may not be so surprising, aint that bad at all, i went and bought a copy of Pirates of The Caribbean.

I was divided on the issue. On the one hand the movie was great. Released here yesterday of which i saw a night session – i loved it and i wanted to be involved. On the other hand, PC Powerplay some other sites had rated it fairly harshly. With this in mind i called EB only to find that all the stores were out of stock. Surprised, i decided to spin by the Belconnen store after work. As i walked in they pulled a lost copy out of a box. Just as he was about to put it on the shelf, i stopped him. “I’ll take it” i said in a serious manner. This particular staff member knows me not because i buy a lot but because i always scout out their stock and new releases. Im pretty sure he knows i work for an influential ISP/Games group too, so we were at ease. As i walked from the store with my treasure i called back to him; “I’m off to sail the seven seas! Harr!!”

The game isn’t too bad. It has very awkward controls and foolish inventory layouts. Also there are no advanced display controls – you’ve got very little access to the insides of the game. I figure thats because this is actually a Disney title. Apart from some weak dialoge the game is immersive, graphics are sweet and the sea combat is cool. No regrets here, ye landlubbers. Harr!
