Yep, I figured I had been a good boy this year, and decided to get myself a present. Armed with a credit card, I went out a few days ago to buy a console.
Actually, I was shooting for a Wii, but guess what? In the three stores I looked, I found none. Simply because they were completely sold out. I did however, notice quite a few 20 GB PS3s (Everyone wants a 60 GB), but I wouldn't buy one for a multitude of reasons I have already explained throughly.
Anyway, on my third and finale shop, there is of course, no Wii, so I decide to settle for second prize. I grabbed a Xbox 360. The package was the upper level one, and it also came with Need for Speed: Most Wanted. For games, I also picked up Gears of War and Lego Star Wars II.
So, I hook up the Console. After a few moments of trouble (Which was all user error, like putting the batteries in wrong for the controller), I shove in Gears of War. Now, I'm not a graphics guy, but on my sub-par CRT TV, the thing still looks amazing. The Gameplay was pretty amazing, once I got the hang of it (the game does have a learning curve) The story was a bit weak, but I wasn't paying much attention. I was too busy having fun splattering guts across the screen with the Chainsaw.
Lego Star Wars..... well, it was alright. It was fun for a while, but the novelty of pulling off arms with Chewbacca wore off about halfway through. It had nice graphics, but the pretty picture can only keep me going so long.I've heard nice reviews about it, but I didn't find it all that great. There was a bit too much collecting going on.
Need for Speed. I'm not into racing games all that much. However, I've had decent fun with this game. Its fun to evade the 10-20 police cars you can eventually get chasing you. Once again, it looks pretty, which I've said about all the games so far, but its true (Especially for Gears of War. That game continues to blow my mind).
Overall, so far my experience with the 360 has been positive. I'm happy with my purchase. I still wish I had gotten a Wii, but we'll have to wait until I get some more extra money, and they actually have some in stores.
