Run Silent, Run Co-op

Finally got a chance to play some Splinter Cell: Conviction. And FINALLY real co-op is back in that series!! Webmaster Steve and I played so much of the co-op missions in SC Chaos Theory back on the old XBox (Ebony) that I barely got a chance to dabble in the excellent single player campaign. We had our hopes up for SC Double Agent on the 360 (Ivory), but the co-op was nowhere near the predecessor. Now we're back in business. Not only is the co-op phenomenal, but there's even the Deniable Ops mode which is like Terrorist Hunt on the Rainbow 6 series. Tasty!!

My only gripe now is that I don't have enough time to play as much as I'd like. And when I refer to "as much as I'd like", I mean all day / every day. Oh well. I'd better get crackin', though because I'm seeing previews for the new Ghost Recon, Medal of Honor and Call of Duty games that look brain-melt-tastic. If there was only a way to convert my XBox gamer score into currency, I could pay bills AND keep playing.

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
