Story 1.

I bought some persona 3 figures. Mitsuru I got at Wondercon, but what I really wanted was Aegis (cause you know, I'd cuddle with her cold metal body anyday). Unfortunately, Aegis was no where to be found at the con so I ordered it off Amazon. It arrive, THE NEXT FUCKING DAY. how cool is that? Yeah, be jealous of my awesome figurines punks.

Story 2.

I got my bonus check today. Now, a vast majority of it is going toward paying bills/car insurance/rent/saving for a downpayment on a tiny ass expensive LA condo. I said to myself however (just like this) "You know what? I work my ass off. I deserve to treat myself to something nice." So I bought an XBOX 360.

ok, so before I go on my long short story here, lemme just say to my PS3 buddies that I ain't betrayin' ya. Any multiplatform games that come out that I want to get I will always choose PS3 over the Xbox. cause y'know, the xbox stabbed me in the back way back when. but that's a story for another time.

So I really wanted an xbox to play some exclusives, such as mass effect and lost odyssey, and try out this XNA jazz that workman has been talkin' about. So today, I dropped 550 bucks on LO, ME, XBOXPRO, and a year of live. Funny thing. Whenever I buy games and shit, I always get this good confident feeling. It's really hard to describe. I got the good feeling as I was purchasing the GAMES. However, this is first time I felt full of doubt as I bought the console. How weird is that? I just hope this one doesn't die on me too. My heart can't handle being broken by the same lady twice.

Also, I forgot that the wireless isn't built in. so more ghetto artist tape to the wall to run a damn cable to my modem.

Thought 1.
So some people think I'm abit of a sony fanboy and that I hate xbox. I'm not. I don't really hate the xbox, I just feel betrayed by it still. Also, I wouldn't be buying another xbox if I was a fanboy. Infact, lemme explain what I think is the cause of #1 cause fanboyism:

Being a broke ass kid. Think about it. If you can't afford to own all the consoles, it's human nature to justify what you do own so you don't feel like a left out. But in all honesty, if you got up to a majority of fanboys and offer them a free console that's not of they're brand, you better bet they'd probably take it.

No, I'd like to introduce a maybe new term: Console Preference. One of you smart fucking writers with a big vocabulary come up with something better please. I think of myself as a PS3 Prefer-er. I have no qualms about buying a wii or xbox (well, 'cept for the fear and doubt from rrod) and buying the awesome games that are on those respective consoles. I just prefer the PS3, which means the ps3 is tailored to me as a gamer better then the other 2. It's simple personal preference.

Plug 1.
my gamertag is ceark. same as my psn id.

Thought 2.
Lost Odyssey is pretty fucking epic. It's far from perfect, but so far, it's a satisfying experience and it's nice to have a decent next gen rpg. I'll post a game notes similar to my Uncharted Game notes when I'm done with the game.

And yeah. The packaging sucks. I'd say fuck you Europeans on having an actual 4 disc holding case, but you guys get shafted in every other aspect.

Thought 3.
Man. That artist tape on my wall is really ugly.

Story 3.
True story. Tactix is now rooming with us at PAX. The last spot will probably go on a coin flip (depending on if Guitar can get snaileb to go or not).

Thought 4.
Can't wait my tax return comes in. I'll probably get a wii so I can' play... well fuck I don't know. I'm too colorblind for most of Nintendo's games. Smash is the equivalent of having my eyes fucked by a rhino.

Thought 5.
The backside of the girl character in LO (forgot her weird ass name already) is fucking hot. I sent a screen cap to my girl and she was like "man, I wanna run my fingers up those shoulderblades".

Question 1.
Do I need to register my Xbox or anything? or that done automatically when you sign up for live? I don't remember any of this crap. Also, RROD is now covered 3 years automatically right? I sure as hell don't want to drop another 60 bucks for that extended coverage crap. This shits expensive. They just make it look cheaper by hiding a bunch of extra costs.

alright. I'm done for the day.
