Week of 23-11-08 to 30-11-08
Gamerscore:
5775 (+0)
Games Played: Gears of War 2 (X360)

Well, I didn't gain any Gamerscore, but then again I only played my Xbox one day this week.

I played a couple rounds of Gears yesterday, but I hit an absolute lagfest and quit. The multiplayer is marginally better after the update, but still brutally slow and frequently laggy. It's a great game, but the multiplayer is best played privately, with people who you know have good connections.

It snowed yesterday! Yay! It rained today! Yay! The snow's gone already! Yay... wait... that sucks.

The snow was beautiful. When I walk home from school I walk through a small forest that hasn't been developed. The snow was hanging off the tree branches, crystalline in the afternoon sun. I was the first to walk there, and the snow was completely undisturbed. Time almost seems to stand still after a fresh snowfall.

Now, it's all gone. The grass can be seen again and a thick slush covers the roads and sidewalks. It's gross.

I wrote two reviews this week. Read'em, ignore'em, whateva:

Fable II review
Surf's Up review

That's all. If you see me online this week (which you will), I'll likely be playing Lost Odyssey, The Orange Box, or Gears 2.

Oh, and two more reviews are due out this week.One for Professor Layton and the Curious Village should be done by tommorrow, and one for Halo 3 should be up by next weekend.

Merry gaming!
