Every story has a beginning.. and mine starts with the classic consoles. From Atari, NES, to Gen. Odd how things worked out, from blips to characters sprawling over an open world. Either by pipe or a loop-de-loop. Those times have passed, but still are a part of our gamer hearts.
Well my playlist thus far.. Pitfall, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros 1-3, Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Earthworm Jim, Mega Man, and many more.. this list could take awhile trust me.
After some penance regarding the rrod, I saved up some cash and had my system promptly repaired. Having it back just barely a week, has been quite humbling. And in turn, put some cash towards a few games I have held back for awhile.. Bayonetta, Super Street Fighter IV, Tomb Raider Underworld, and Marvel VS Capcom 3.
I have to admit, after updating my system, it acts quite differently with the new hub. But having to re-insert games sometimes can be a bit of a bugger. Not an issue really, its just bizarre how formatting changes the way things receive input & data. Honestly I was so used to "insert disc and lets roll!"
Now onto the subject of games.. Bayonetta - I love the fast, and furious action oriented gameplay, and the music can get stuck in your head for days. ("Fly me to the Moon" a remix!? and it works!)
Super Street Fighter IV - I honestly didn't enjoy the first edition, the presentation is even more sweeter here. But I do miss not being able to re-watch character intros & endings. Kinda strange those were taken out (oops too many on the roster). Makes sense now that I think about it. Online? I haven't played too many matches, due to some constraints. Till I found out my cricket modem could obtain Wifi. I may try again this weekend.
Tomb Raider Underworld - I just picked this up today, so I still haven't played it. Will revise later.
*(However I did play Legend, but stll trying to find Anniversary)
Marvel VS Capcom 3 (standard) not CE (that price was insane enough, jeezus Capcom !?) - Likewise with the above note, I will play it eventually! (and online too)
(*Oh, and it came with decals, hmm I like these)
Overall, it feels great to have my 360 running again. =D (and its an 06' model, not the new shiny one)
