So long, productivity, sleep, reading, exercise, hygiene, bathing, and blogging
That's right. As I alluded to earlier, I've got an Xbox 360 now (or, as I like to call it, my Rock Band Machine) and it's consuming pretty much all of my non-working waking hours.
I'm becoming quite the drummer. On the easy level, at least.
As much as I'm getting engrossed in digital wonderment, I've vowed not to fall into the cycle I was in during my PS2 days: buy a game, play it a little, buy another game, play it a little, ad ininitum.
I don't plan on purchasing any more games until I exhaust what I've already got in my modest library*: LEGO Indiana Jones, Rock Band 1 & 2, Viva Piñata, Beautiful Katamri, Dead Rising, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, and Kung Fu Panda.
For future reference, though, what are some of the better games out there? Keep in mind that first person shooters make me physically ill and I suck at racing games. And what last gen Xbox games did I miss out on during my PS2 myopia? (I intend on diving into Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic at some point).
Also, I'm on Xbox Live. I don't plan on doing much online gaming since my free Gold membership expires in a couple of weeks and I don't have any real multiplayer games, but I'll still be your virtual buddy. Just let me know what your "gamer tag" (or whatever the heck it's called) is. When the season rolls around, I'm sure I'll be getting a college football game and will be up for some virtual bouts then.
Man, this is a geeky post.
*Downloadable Rock Band songs excluded. The game comes pre-loaded with only so many Boston and Weezer songs, you know.
