I’m noticing that there are a lot of cool games out, or coming out, that I’m going to have to get. First and foremost, the latest and greatest installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. I got an email notification that it’ll be out on October 22, 2002. Woohoo! There’s not a whole lot of info on it, but you can read the news release on it. I’ll definitely be picking that one up, if it’s even half as good as GTA3.
Let’s see… Last night I finished Spy Hunter, which was quite the ordeal. I’d been playing it off and on for several months, and not being terribly great at games in general, this one gave me some trouble. But I’ve been getting better lately, so I was finally able to finish all the missions on this thing. I highly recommend it - it’s everything Spy Hunter should be.
Next on the list to work on is Devil May Cry. That’s another one that’s pretty difficult for the less than coordinated moi, so I anticipate spending some “quality time” working with it.
And, last but not least, for the XBox at work, the next must-buy is Dead or Alive Extreme Volleyball. Featuring your favorite ladies from the fighting games DOA2: Hardcore and DOA3, you get to play a bit of beach volleyball and enjoy the high kicks. I’ve only seen the intro trailer for it, but it looks so cheesy (with just the right T&A factor) that I can’t NOT get it.
In other news…
Jenn and I watched that American Idol show last night, and… wow. I mean, some of the people were legitimately good, but others were so utterly horrible that I wonder why they would even bother showing up on the thing. Did they actually think they could make it? Watching these people is like watching a train wreck - horrible, yet you can’t take your eyes off it. And one of the judges, Simon Cowell (who I’d never heard of before in my life), is sort of like Judge Judy - brutal, yet totally right.
