Bye bye, social life

Yup, I got an Xbox 360; which probably means my social life is going to be handicapped for a while (as has happened to all the other people who got Xboxes before me).

So yeah, the console is sitting here infront of me, and it took me quite a bit of self-restraint to stop playing and write a post about it instead. Anyhow; last time I owned a video game was back around 1993/1994, when I had a Sega Mega Drive. Things have evolved quite a bit since then. For starters, this joystick has 19 buttons, and two directional sticks. Err...

Anyway, i'm getting the hang of it, slowly, and sooner or later i'll be playing online with every other soul whose lost their social life to this disease. It is fun though. If you notice me not writing as much these days (or at all), you know the reason!

(Games list so far; Gears of War, Halo 3, Forza Racing, Virtua Fighter and Army of Two)
