DEEEEEEEEETROIT BASKETBAAAAAAALL! 7-0 baby! After falling behind by 13 in the 3rd period, it turned into the Chauncey Billups show. He absolutely went nuts hitting everything he threw up, hacked, pushed, pulled, whatever... if he threw it up, it was going in. He was in the zone in the 3rd quarter for sure. I couldn't believe it. 7-0 on the young season with trips to Houston and Dallas coming up.

Other than the 2K Sports conference call yesterday, I didn't do too much. Played some Nickjr with Nat and a little baloon baseball, she's really getting good at hitting that thing, lol. It's funny the way she stands in the box, she gives a little mean snarl as she gets ready to hit the ball. I didn't even teach her that, I have no idea where she got it from, lol.

In other news...
Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!

What's up!

Cavs win again, smoking the Wiz. LeBron is on fire...absolutely on fire. Larry Hughes is starting to get his groove in the offense and catch fire.

IGN's Xbox 360 reviews have been disappointing, but it's IGN. Gamespot raved over NBA2K6. So I'll wait for the rest of their reviews to really get a feel of them. I have no interest in Gun or Tony Hawk for the 360. The NHL review is something I'm looking forward to.

Jennifer Aniston...MAN of the year? How odd.

Yesterday, I went to my EB to see if the games came in but the manager told me tomorrow (today) and Thursday. They got the Xbox 360 in to play though, so I played some COD2, how SWEET is that game!?

Today, I have a group presentation on Ellis Island for US History and probably a lab in Chemistry. I'm playing tennis at 5:30 and I'll probably pick my 360 games up before then.

I am trying to finish off this week because I am taking off next week for thanksgiving/xbox360. This xbox360 thing is driving me crazy. there is a best buy in Houston doing a midnight launch. I haven't decided if i want to do that or try various walmarts or targets. Hopefully one way or another I get one on launch day.

Yup, lovin' the Cavs beating the Wiz. I can talk smack to all these Wiz fans over here.

Hey guys,

I keep thinking about trying to get a 360, but I just can't justify spending $400 on a console. I'd rather spend that on a new hard drive and video card for my PC. Besides, I've always been a Playstation guy. Mostly for the Gran Turismo games. There's no way I'm buying both consoles, so until GT is on Xbox, I'll be sticking to the Playstation. And even when the PS3 comes out, I probably won't get it for 6 months or so.

Speaking of PC Games, I've been playing Call of Duty 2 online just about every night now. I hope the online experience is as good on the 360 as it is on PC. Since I run my own server, I'm able to setup the game the way me and my buddies want. We've got it setup pretty nice right now, and we're starting to attract a little attention from people outside our gaming circle.

I cancelled my World of Warcraft account Monday. My first ever MMORPG gaming experience has come to an end. It got to where it was just waaaaay too boring. I'd play for maybe 5-10 hours a week. I can't see how people can play that much every day.

Well, that's it from me for now. Gotta get to work.

good luck. I hate tests.



My stomach hurts now. The breakfast here at my dorm tends to be greasy sometimes. And I swallowed a pill the wrong way I guess and now it feels like I got punched in upper part of my back

It was a good day. I got to get all the work expected of me on Monday today, and I'll be doing some of it. Anyway, I went to the mall to get some new dress clothes.. swung by Software Etc, learned that CH2k6 drops 11/22, went to EB, who promptly told me they don't know when my Xbox 360 is f'n getting here (by X-mas though! that makes me happy ), plus the job opening is a Holiday greeter. A part-time seasonal work that I probably wouldn't get any lasting employment out of, plus it takes me away from my family (plus the stuff I'm gonna get). 15 hours a week, with a boring job (not many people go to EB cause there's a Software Etc. that's closer to the entrance, plus is more established.

Anyway, yeah, still a good day. Gonna do absolutely zero.

A lot of my friends aren't getting the 360 because of the price and game reviews from other sites. I can't wait to try out the new games, I just hope they are GOOD!

So, I take it you have your "Clan" and play against others?

Speaking of CH 2K6, I just came home and the final beta is here.

Yeah, I have a group of guys that I've played several games with now. We don't play Call of Duty competitively or anything, just a fun group of guys to play with and against. I actually work with several of the guys that are in our clan/guild/squad. I started playing with them in World War II Online, then went from there to Jumpgate. Have played everything from World of Warcraft to Planetside with this group. I also actually help run a gaming forum of my own. Its much smaller than OS, and tends to really only be frequented by members of my clan, but its a fun community nonetheless.
