Jim
From Videogame "Earthworm Jim"

Little BIG Planet: The annoucement of real WATER to be added, I even submited my name for beta testing :D

Super Mario Bros. 3
I hated how hard the 8th world was as much as how much I loved the game during the previous 7 worlds. The extreme difficulty was a real letdown to this great game


God of War Collection: Putting both Gow I & II in a single Blu-ray disc, adding 720p support and TROPHIES, I don't think that can be topped by anything else this month :D

Crotch: I encountered this word two times this month, once in a movie and the second in screwattack top ten ladies of gaming and it was very fuuny :D

Still Alive: The best song I've heard this month, from videogame "Portal"

"Son of a Sandworm": Said by Kefka, from "Final Fantasy VI" :lol:


Portal
Without a doubt Portal is the best thing happened to me this month

August's summary:



Excercising decreased a lot this month because I was very ill and now because Ramadan "Fasting month" started, I don't feel like excercising at all. Organizing has taken a lot this month because we're moving stuff from my room to re-arrange it. Gaming was a major thing too since it is a summer holiday :D
I'm watching a great Kuwaiti series on TV too.

Overall, my monthly activity hasn't changed from previous months a lot.
