No, I did not waste my time in some long, cold, and often violent line for a PS3. Nope. This poor kmilyun has to plug along with an older Xbox, no 360, no ps3, no no no . … oh boo hoo.
I can remember when Pong was a hit. Everyone who was anybody in school just had to have one. That of course was the childs view point then – not the parents. Now the parents seem to have a need, not the need for speed, but the need for their child to be the first on the block with a very expensive game. Just think, I used to get excited when the new books we ordered came in. I could not wait to get home and read them! But I remember school before calculators and know how to use a slide ruler. If the power ever stops flowing through the lines – I will drag it out and be a genius once more. I will dazzle the crowd with my magic ruler LOL. Back to the games. I am losing over and over again playing a PC demo Call of Duty 3. Shooting the bad guys is a pain in the fingers without a joystick. My old joystick was top of the line years ago. Now it sits in a box in the closet dusty. My Xbox provide winter entertainment that requires no great effort. It unfortunately is hooked up to the bigscreen HDTV downstairs. I just do not understand why this is annoying. Why watch TV anyway – there is not much worth watching anyway. If Santa reads this I want an Xbox 360 and a PS3 for Christmas. Just so my younger relatives will be jealous. I suppose I would settle for a copy of a Xbox game.
I have been reading the Inheritance Trilogy. Now there is an Xbox game and a movie comming out based on the books. The reviews on many of the gameing sites seem to rate it as rather boring – just right for me :). The movie might be cute. Dragons have been a favorite of mine. Anne McCaffrey’s Pern novels, the Dragon Riders of Pern, and the Harper Hall Trilogy started it. Any game no matter how lame it may be is a good game if it has dragons in it.
