Picked up Links 2004, Splinter Cell:
Pandora Tomorrow, and Trivial Pursuit Unhinged for the Xbox this
week. I feel like a traitorous PC gamer since I didn't get Splinter
Cell for the PC and I didn't get Far Cry like I had planned. Battlefield:
Vietnam and UT2k4 came out recently and the idea to buy them never
even crossed my mind. I never thought I'd be a console gamer, but
being able to talk to your teammates without setting up a voice
program is a big added value.
Trivial Pursuit Unhinged has celebrity voices reading the questions. Brook
Burke reads the People and Places cards, and I've said it's like Wild On my Xbox.
I've started playing drunk and in a speedo, just to maintain the whole mystique
of Wild On.
Any fans of Masamune Shirow should check out the upcoming (Japanese release
only) film of Appleseed. I don't
know who else has heard of Shirow, but he's always been my artistic hero. I nearly
blacked out when I saw the trailers, but I've also been huffing my canned air
recently (only kidding mom, don't call poison control again).
