  1. I play games on easy

    I've recently come to terms with my inability at playing any game with any skill; from now on, I'm playing games on the easy difficulty settings and I don't care who knows it. β†’

  2. The Xbox and I, revisited

    Long time readers may remember my brief excursion into the world of the Xbox back in 2004, when I bought a limited edition Crystal Xbox in order to sell at a profit only to discover that they had been re-issued and I was lucky to get my money back at all. Back then, the Xbox platform held no interest for me, with its library appearing to consist almost entirely of shooting and driving games, and the online aspect didn't hold any appeal either.

    We all have our weaknesses. For some, it's drink. For others, it's chocolate. For me, it's consoles. I love them, I want to own them all, and it's a testament to my own will power that I don't own them all. They'd bankrupt me, given half the chance. It's not even really about the games that come on them; I owned, for a while, a Bandai Crystal Wonderswan, an obscure little Japanese handheld. I owned the grand total of one game for it, Final Fantasy IV, all in Japanese, which I can't read. A pointless purchase, but I wept real tears when I sold it on to someone else. β†’
