Friday Knight News – X-COM Gaming Edition: 12-OCT-2012

Welcome to another Friday and another news roundup!

Is it just me or does my week often feel like I’m trapped in a Daffy Duck cartoon? I suspect I’ve ho ha ha guarded myself into a few issues without too much trouble.

September is here. It sneaked in behind August’s back when I wasn’t looking. And somehow with the Labor Day holiday I find myself a week behind. Go figure. All that catching up I was going to do over the long weekend? Yeah, that never happened.

Is it possible for weeks to be *too* busy? Between work, my daughters (back to school this week plus a big multi-day soccer tournament this weekend), and my wife (a million miles an hour in 10 directions), I think I may pull the rest of my hair out. *sigh*
