I got my GameCube component cable from Nintendo just this morning. I had to hook and un-hook lots of wires because it now goes through my receiver to my tv and there's lots of wires and stuff. But now it's all set (GC - XBOX - DVD all component hooked) and i only tried it with Tales of Symphonia and the colors, lighting and clarity are all much better. And ToS is not even a Progressive Scan GC game...
I need my damn papers from my last few jobs with the agency! I asked for them last friday and i'm still waiting! :evil: I have to go to the governement with my paper to receive money until i find a new job. Which will probably only go to the beginning of January. At least i'll still be making some money. And i'll be able to enjoy some good gaming time and my finally 100% complete Home Theater.
Tales of Symhponia rocks so damn hard!! It's been a long since i played a RPG that i enjoyed so much. Not counting GBA RPG's and the Mario RPG games, it actually goes back to FFVII. Now that's a long time. Though Skies of Arcadia Legends was killer, i still prefer ToS. I'm so badly hooked on the combat system, i never try to not get in a fight. I'm already over 1000 battles in not yet 50 hours... And i really like the story and specially the characters, even though it's shock-full of clichés.
Now for some Halo 2 impressions. Gameplay and all , it's pretty much similar to the first. More fun with the vehicles. The campain is THE major let-down, with it's not so good story, lame ending and missions getting more boring at the 6th one. Also the texturing problems in the cut-scenes. Bungie should have put more time and polish in the Campain. Oh i forgot, it's also shorter than Halo, we beat it in 2 days. For XBOX Live, me nor any of my friends have it. But we have System Link just at my neighbor's home. And we play every week night since the game release. It never gets boring playing some Slayer and King of the Hill with friends.
I can't wait for the release of Shaun of the Dead on DVD. I saw it with my best buddy and we had a blast, now all our fiends are hyped for it since they saw the trailer and the Dawn of the Dead remake.
So that's it for now. Phew, it's not often that i write something that long whitout being forced. And it was good. I'll try putting more meat in my future posts, reply's and journal entry. I used to be a pretty good writer at school, always in the top 3 of the class. But nowadays the only writing i do is on the Internet, and it's all in English. My main language is Canadian French...
Now that's it, for real.
