So it's been a while...

I tried the Nascar '08 demo at a friend's house. My response: don't buy it. I don't care how much of a Nascar fan you are. The controls are way too touchy, the sound is questionable at times, and the graphics aren't as good as they could be. That, and it's light on features.

I might get a 360 just for Oblivion. Oh, and Halo 3.


So, this past month I've...wait a minute, I don't think I even touched a controller. Too much homework...


I got Xbox Live today, and all I can say is that I love it. It's just too bad that my Xbox wants to spit out everything I put in it. Lately it's been giving me numerous issues because of the damaged lens (freakin' EBgames).


Got both Halo 2 and Metroid Prime 2. I got a few hours in with MP2, but then got hooked on Halo, which I've almost beaten. Had a friend over Thursday night and we played through almost the entire campaign.

Getting Xbox Live once I got a job, which won't be till summer...freakin' homework.

Didn't make the Online 500, but that's ok. It's not like I practiced for it.

Gaming summary for December

Hmmm let's see...um, Halo, Halo, and more Halo. I had 2 friends over one night and we did multiplayer for hours on end. Then I had one friend over and we did half of the campaign in co-op, and it froze after almost every level. But hey, those were some great nights with a great game.

Not much else going on lately. I'm going to make a qualifying attempt for the TSW 500 (www.online500.com). I doubt I'll make it since I didn't put much time into my car setup.

I beat that one really annoying level in Splinter Cell, too. The story's gotten quite interesting. I'm also doing quite a bit of Project Gotham 2. That game is strangely addicting.

Again, ever since school's started I haven't had much time to play, but I got some time over Christmad break to do some of that stuff.

Reflecting on the past year...

Am I the only one who thinks a lot of great games came out in 2006, like more than usual? We got Oblivion, Gears of War, GRAW and Rainbow 6, GTR 2, and FFXII. I don't recall so many great games coming out in 2005, but maybe that's just me.

Last night my friend was over and he brought his brand new PS3 with!!!! We took it online and I tried posting a blog here, but it wouldn't go through. In fact, I was generally unimpressed with the PS3's online capabilities. It struggled to stream video and some pages simply took forever to load. But otherwise, it was great. He had a demo for Genji (thought it was kinda lame) and Motorstorm (LOVED IT). So in short: the PS3 is a slick, well-made machine that should only get better as time goes on. And wow it's huge, especially compared to the Wii. On top of that, it gives off a ton of heat.

Now that I have the Xbox, I FINALLY got Halo. Yep. I waited 5 years, but it was worth the wait.

Gaming summary for November

...wow that month went fast...didn't play much...um...

a little Timesplitters 2, a little Splinter Cell, a little Forza, and some Nascar 2003...sorry. I really didn't make any progress in any of them...


oh, and i'm trying metroid prime on hard level. it's not that hard yet.

Gaming Summary for October.

After I beat Metroid Prime, I haven't done much gaming. School's really got in the way so I've barely been able to use either Xbox or Gamecube. But when I did, here's what I did.

I did quite a bit of online racing in Nascar 2003. I'm starting to get into that game a lot again. I borrowed Soul Caliber II from a friend, and that's a pretty good game. And when I had the chance, I gave Splinter Cell a shot. It's a hard game, so I didn't get too far.

My Xbox still won't read many of my disks. That infuriates me because I got Gamecube games off of Ebay all the time and they worked fine. But no, Xbox just sucks.

I also got a MadCatz universal wheel for PS2, Xbox, and GC. And now my friend got the PS2, so I can use it all consoles.

Don't have a Gamecube? Get one.

Honestly, Xbox and PS2 are better than Gamecube, but with the reduced price, I recommend getting it just for these games:

1. Zelda: Collector’s edition.

2. Metroid Prime

3. Super Smash Bros. Melee

there are other great games that I haven't played. But there's a few exclusively for the Gamecube that are incredible.

A great game comes to an end.

Feel free to read my review Metroid Prime. Wow, awesome game. My 3 favorite games of all time...played all 3 in a row...weird.

My Xbox is here but I'm a tad worried. About two or three times a week I get an error message saying my disk is dirty when it's not. I asked my friend, who also has one, and he says it's pretty typical.

Anyone have similar problems?

err Forza motorsport is too realistic...I need a wheel :)
