gaming, xbox comments edit

ZumaMade my first purchase on the Xbox Live Marketplace last night. Bought the game Zuma, which is sort of an addictive little puzzle game.

I’d only played it a couple of times before - once on the computer, once on the demo version for Xbox 360 - but I fired it up after buying it for 800 “Microsoft Points” ($10) and ran at it for a little over an hour. Thought I was seriously kicking ass until I saw that I ranked like 20,000th or something. Hmmm.

Jenn played after me. Jenn is a Zuma whore. Her Zuma addiction is not unlike that of a heroin junkie. She did pretty well, better than I did (ranking like 13,000th or something).

So glad I paid $600 for a Zuma 360 - a very expensive, high-definition, Zuma-playing device. I anticipate she’ll be on that when I get home, her very soul lost to the chanting demons of the game, eyes blurry, hands aching, just needing one more game.
