Made 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.
