paper tigers

See what happens when I go on vacation? I come up to visit, and suddenly we have nothing to talk about.
I did get the web site's new look finished last night. Except for the Misc page, but that's just going to hold a bunch of useful things like Transformer links and shit like that.

So I've now had some of the xbox experience. It was good, but not convincing. Buttons placed in awkward places(start, white, black) a d-pad that seems surperflous. The games, being the money we're talking about here, were solid. KOTOR was cool, and I could get sucked into it, but combat seemed a little distancing. As a stat-based event, though, it's a lot closer to the pen and paper RPG's than Final Fantasy gets.

Halo. Is very good. Playing while hungover I nearly threw up when I fell off a chasm. It was a good thing to go to Dolly's and get breakfast. Very, very good.

Multiplayer was pretty engaging. With people who are skilled at that game I bet it's a riot. With a weak link(me) things can get very tricky, since it's harder to have fun when your role is as bullet sponge, if the type of game picked doesn't force players to engage with each other. And I have a long, long way to understanding tactics, not only in multiplayer but in teams. But I could've stayed up way, way too late doing this, and that's always a good sign. Have to get a couple FPS so I can practice, do better next Halo run.
