New console on the blog. Plus glorious SD my gaming setup

It's official. I am a proud 360 owner. I never got to take in my hands a real 360 unit before. Only the controller, so i was really excited. Used to the minimal cable jacks of the Wii, i found the power jack at the back of the console enormously big. Anyways now I can proudly present to you my glorious standard definition gaming setup

I know it's an unlikely furniture for holding gaming systems and a television but believe me it's sooo practical.

As you can see the television set is a freaky old one. At least it can do 60Hz pal without flickering and all.
I also have my Wii with yesterday's unread messages causing it going blue, my wii fit sitting on old poofs and a Sega Saturn just for the retro feeling. (i have a Mega Drive too but I hide it away from the bad people that want to steal it from me)

There is a big couch right across the room. specifically placed for gaming sessions.

So to the 360. here's the awesome photo of my awesome console

bundled with Forza 2 and Viva Piniata.

Let's wish that RROD won't come over me anytime soon....

About Mariolandone of us since 7:35 PM on 02.04.2008

Hey! I'm a 24 years old man and I'm living in Greece. Video games aren't banned in Greece.

Here's another update to my blog description.
Hi, I'm Marioland and I'm a gamer for a long long time. Greece sucks in general. I'm still practically unemployed. We have a VAT rate at 24% for everything except milk and the cost of living vs the salaries are so unequal, that it is needed to have two jobs in order to run your own house. We are the generation that grew up and stays in parents' basements.

My angst for the lame gamers in Greece is now silenced. Everybody plays as they want. I don't care. I have enough friends to play with so, random matches are a stranger to me.

Younger gamers still can't afford to READ the solution for a game. Let alone play it themselves.

And, yeah. Somehow I feel happy. Also, I kinda like gaming on iDevices, as long as it's not an iPhone.

I am growing old to the gaming journalism, but I still count my self as a newcomer. I contribute to a greek gaming site called Game 2.0 where I post news, reviews and editorials. It's all in Greek so, it will be kinda Greek to you.
I still believe that gaming journalism is a harsh place. Everything you do gets a lot of negative attention (that's kinda good in a cynical point of view). But, now I know more of the people in other sites, I could see that some of them are actually good people.

Anyways, I own a DSi, a PSP, an Xbox 360, a Wii and an iPod Touch 4G 32GB. Feel free to ask me for friendship on these platforms. It would be nice to get my ass handed to me by someone from Dtoid.

Keep Gaming!

Update kinda lame. But I had fun changing it!
