This summer is just awesome. And it hasn't really ended yet.
Besides my relations with the people around me getting better and better, I received and bought a lot of stuff, either gaming related or not.
Let's start with the non gaming or partially gaming related. The Highlight is that i got a new monitor for my pc. I really hated the old one. It was a 15' CRT made by philips that I had it for 8 years. It was like... yuk. I couldn't see shit, the internal lamp became weak over the years and the screen was just dying.
Thankfully, at my birthday (8 August) my parents bought me and sent me a brand new 19' LCD made by LG. It's like a miracle! My tortured eyes really appreciated the difference! oh did i mentioned that it's WIDESCREEN! HECK YEAH!
Now i have plenty of space on my desk and I don't need that ugly old Made-for-pc-only extra table. It also has the same colour scheme with my Keyboard, speakers and mouse which is neat.
The other stuff I picked was a Wacom Bamboo pen tablet (For doing wacky stuff on painting programs) which I picked up for just 45 Euros!
I also received as a present from my bro, a slim DVD-Recorder LG again, which can do Lightscribe and it only gets power from 2 usb ports. It's supposed to be a companion to my Asus EEEpc since it has no Optical Media but it ended up to my Main PC serving as a full duty DVD writer.
Onwards to my gaming stuff.
It's not a 360 yet. So it's all Wii... I got Zack and Wiki; a game that I wanted for so long. I really enjoy it now and I wish for a freaking sequel someday. I downloaded Defend your Castle which is funny as hell! I really liked the feeling of... u know... everyday items turned into barbarians that fiercely want to get into your cardboard castle for no reason...
I also got from the circle of my closest friends a Wii Fit. They all pitched in and they bought it for me. Well... I can't decide if their gesture is moving or they are trying to tell me that i am FAT (and I partially am)
It's something I couldn't buy by myself so it was a great present. The given software is Nothing special besides the exercises and the balance board itself. Overall enjoyable. For rhythm game freaks: this can be the Step Step revolution of your dreams....
I'm gonna get payed by the end of August. I hope this time is a 360. Oh yeah....
