Everyone likes chatting about entertainment, right?
Watching: Flash Season 3. Yes, it's basically a soap opera, but it has superpowers! Not enjoying this one as much as Season 2, Zoom and Earth Two being far better handled than Savitar and the Flashpoint seems to be (only halfway through). Or maybe it's just that this is the first time I've binge watched on Netflix instead of using the DVR week to week.
Playing: Hearts of Iron 4, Kaiserreich Mod. Germany won WW1 and come 1936 the world is in even worse shape than what happened on Earth One. Commies control France and the British Isles. The royal family and nobility have fled to Canada. The White Revolution was victorious in Russia and now sits on the edge of Imperialism. Isolationist America is in political turmoil and readies itself for a second civil war! Sound fun? Yeah, its fun. Might be better than the base game actually, or at least have more replayability. One of the biggest faults of HoI 4 is that outside of Europe it's very stale and you really don't have enough manpower to get anything done. Not so here.
Reading: Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson, Stormlight Archives #2 Reread. I enjoy Sanderson quite a lot, especially for his world-building inventiveness, maybe not as much as some of his hardcore fans (they scare me!), but I never miss a book of his for sure and have been reading them since Elantris first hit shelves back in 2005. His BIG FETCHING(*Mormon approved curse words only) SERIES is the Stormlight Archives, a world with with highstorms, magic vapor swords, magic vapor iron-man armor, all sorts of other magic-by--talking-fairies thrown on top, and lots of crabs, giant enemy crabs! His third book is coming out in November, with a smaller ancillary novel arriving early October, so I decided to do a reread on the last book, since it's been awhile and if you think you forget a lot of stuff between releases, try writing a few of your own novels between them and see how the ol' noggin keeps up.
And yes, I'm writing :-P
