Brain Sprinkles 108

Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.

Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

I’ve always loved the Ratchet & Clank games, and while the first game in the series for the PlayStation 3 is good, it doesn’t capture the magic the earlier games have. It’s not as funny, the gameplay isn’t as solid, and it features gimmicky moments such as on-rails space battles that are just a bore. That said, it’s still a fun Ratchet & Clank romp overall, and I plan on playing the rest of the series. I just hope later entries are more on par with the PlayStation 2 gems Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal.
