Plastic Boxes Of Heat, The Next Generation
And so the future is upon my living room. Geometry Wars:Retro Evolved is as brilliant as expected and Rockstar's Table Tennis is truly magnificent in its simplicity. Project Gotham Racing 3 seems to have lost some of the joy it had in version 2 but it sure does look purty! No HDTV here but then that's me in the same boat as almost all other UK homes. Xbox Live is wonderfully done, and offers a surprisingly speedy and robust connection for the larger content (so far). And with an update to make it even better due in the next week or so, it's all jolly pleasing.
Also, my 360... it's alive:
"Pick it, pack it fire it up, come along, lets get Alex Hopkinson's gaming on! Gamer score is 65. That is a gain of 15 points over last time! He played Geometry Wars Evolved, Rockstar Table Tennis gaining 2 achievements, and almost cried with joy. I have that affect on people."
Self important little bugger!
