dahanese bought herself an XBox 360... so now we have one. It's funny how I have gone from owning zero consoles and pretty much exclusively playing PC games for the last, oh, at least eight years (last home console I owned was a Sega Genesis... Megadrive for our European readers), to owning one of my own and playing almost exclusively console games in the last couple of months. The little 'Video Games' section in the sidebar which showcases what I am playing, is now entirely comprised of console games (sadly I do not play Counter-Strike as often as I once did).
Anyway, it's a really cool machine. The whole dashboard thing is pretty awesome and very well done. It's got neat stuff like voice chat and some kind of friends list and other neato junk that I haven't even looked into much yet.
Also we have seven games for it, and paid for none of them (the benefits of a roommate who works for a game publisher). Viva Pinata is really fun in its own weird way. Gears of War is pretty and also fun, but I really, really prefer mouse aiming for any sort of shooter, so using the sticks annoys me a little. Still, it's a pretty sweet game. I also briefly played Need for Speed: Most Wanted, but the use of live actors with severe bloom to make them look more video gameish really annoyed me so I stopped. I haven't tried any of the others yet.
The gallery is also out of date now. I moved the Wii to the other side of the TV and put it vertical because it was getting a little hot on its side. I really need to start playing Zelda too. Some day... some day.
