Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine Update

Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine has posted the following:
  • Table Tennis Preview
    "The A/B/X/Y buttons each correspond to a different spin that can be applied to the ball whilst in play; with Y and A adding back spin and top spin, X and B delivering left spin and right spin. You can charge up these different spins by holding down the corresponding button prior to striking the ball. Pre-shot the left analog stick is used negotiate your player around the table, but once you connect this control momentarily switches, allowing you to then direct the shot in a preferred direction using the same analog stick. A combination of the correct spin and shot placement is key for either smashing a return past a prone opponent or sending them the wrong way with a deft touch."

QOD: I was usually really bad about eating out everyday. We have Applebee's, Chili's, Olive Garden, and a couple little Coney places in tight rotation. However... the last few months, in a combination of trying to eat better and save money for my family vacation to Disney (in 3 and a half weeks), I've been baggin' it. Takes getting use to, but it's better for you...and the wallet.

i work at a Jimmy Johns two days a week, so I have that and I usually get fast food for lunch at my other job. Grilled chicken for dinner though... yes i'm fat.

QOTD: Usually bag it, as long as there are leftovers in the house. Can't do a PB&J anymore....

With that being said, I've just eaten out for 5 days straight while being in Arizona watching the ChiSox in spring training. Time to get back to bag lunches...

QOTD: I bring my lunch to work 3 days of the week. On Wednesday and Fridays the cafeteria at work serves chicken wings and pork sandwiches, I buy lunch those days.

QOTD - I bring my lunch everyday. It's much healthier. Plus, I don't like fast food all that much (unless it's Subway or Quizno's - which I don't consider fast food).

The last place I worked I went out for lunch 5 days a week for the last 2 months I worked there. Way too unhealthy..

LOL at Steve's funny bumper stickers link. My favorites where:

On Science:
There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

On Computers:

The box said Windows 2000 or better. So I installed Linux.

On Driving:

Watch out for the idiot behind me.

I bag a lot, but have a really nice cafeteria in my office building. There's a pizza hut type place, some nice dining food, chicken fingers, burgers, salad bar, and an actual Quizno's. So it's hard to pass it up since the prices are pretty cheap.

I have been eating lean cuisine pretty much everyday for the last few months (if anyone wants, try their paninis, they are amazing!) Since I have quit fast fooding it and stoppped drinking soda, im down about 30 lbs over 2 months. Taco bell and mcds are the devil i tell ya...

QOTD: I'm still a student, and they won't let us off school grounds to get any fast food or whatnot. So I usually just buy whatever crap they are serving, they we have a pretty nic deli / sandwich line. Usually get pepper ham, hot peppers, onions, shredded cheese, and basil with some sort of side (preferrably macaroni salad). My breath Keeps me going the rest of day.
# 10 dieselboy @ 03/29/06 02:24 PM
QOTD: When I was working, it was usually 50/50 on fastfood versus packing something.
