Lately all my time playing on the computer has been taken up by FEAR and World of Warcraft. FEAR is going to be one of the games that I have to play all the way threw. It just has me hooked. It is not so much the story, which has my curiosity going, but the excellent AI.

I got Metriod Pinball for the DS. I thought having the split screen would be a big problem; it actually isn't that big of a deal. It is nice having the whole table right there, and they do not have to bounce from table section to table section like they did with Curby pinball.

I noticed some of the accessories being sold for the Xbox 360 at Wal-Mart the other night. The biggest surprise was seeing the face plates; they were quite a bit bigger than I had imagined them to be. The remote control is nothing like the dinky DVD remote that they had for the old system. It has so many buttons on it, there was even had a Windows button! I wonder if it also works as a universal remote that can work with the TV and other things. That would be cool. They only had the hard wired controllers on stock, and they use what looks like a regular USB connection. I hope that third party hardware makers provide windows drivers so I can use their controller on my Xbox 360 and my PC.

No, I am not getting one when it comes out. I really cannot justify spending $400 on myself this close to Christmas. Maybe next year.
