PixlBit | If there is any activity that comes close to my passion for gaming, it would be reading. I’m always working through a good book, and my reading list is almost as long as my gaming backlog. While my tastes in books run in all directions, my love for sci-fi and fantasy is strong. Since the day that my father sat me on his lap and read to me the adventures of John Carter, Dejah Thoris, and Tars Tarkas on the red planet of Mars I’ve been hooked. In recent years, I’ve been reading the true legends of the SF genre: Heinlein, Asimov, and of course H.G. Wells. So you can imagine my pleasant surprise when I found out that the new War of the Worlds game was based on the original book and not the movie or radio drama adaptations. That pleasant feeling gave way to despair, however.
