Yesterday was this blog’s one year anniversary! What a bunch of changes, huh? Change… From using this template, to this one, to this one, and finally the one you see now, there still is something connecting this blog, pulling everything together. Me. My life. My experiences. But, they’ve changed. I’ve changed. After reviewing everything that happened in 366 days, it becomes quickly apparent that I am much different than the gullible, carefree, Buffyphiliac of June 2005. Sure, I may be some of those in some capacity, in fact I’ll change more and more as time wears on, but… It just feels weird, ya know? To look back what happened exactly a year ago and think it just happened last week, but knowing much more has happened. I was in SUP. I entered high school. I finished my freshman year. Everything in between just amazes me.
But enough reminiscing, back to business right? Glitch, as you all know that my updates are very inconsistent, (which brings me to the point that whenever I’m trapped in a timetable or a due date, I always screw it up and never want to return. Hence why there was a gap in posts between August and November, and from then until February), so the steam on Glitch is dyeing down. I have made a few leaps, but nothing worthy of another release… Yet. I’ve updated Temple Of Andrex with another column on developers and their importance to the video game industry. I’ve been on the G4tv.com Attack of the Show message boards lately, having accumulated 219 posts since May 2006 as of this post, and with no end in sight. Other than that, it’s been a pretty boring summer. I’m getting sick of Mario Kart DS, having played it 4 hours a day atleast every day.
I’ve recently mowed my older sister Ashley’s lawn recently, and funds from this will go into the Wii account. I’ve Googled “Preorder Wii” and clicked almost every link for 4 pages back. In those sites I’ve signed up for email updates whenever there’s a Wii preorder update. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be waiting in line since the day before at Wal*Mart for one, but having a preorder and being at the front of the line definitely helps. Ashley said she might take me, and guys, don’t expect me in school that day or the days to follow. (If I do show up, I’ll have a Wii controller around my neck.) Now, I don’t know if demand is as high as last year’s Xbox 360 fiasco, and I’m confident that there will be many more Wii’s thanks to low cost and easy manufacturing, however, all those parents that can’t find a $600 (actual price for those not in the know) PS3 for little Jimmy might find the Wii a little more attractive, especially with its less than $250 price tag. That might drive demand up just a bit, not to mention the plethora of AAA titles available from day one, with great titles promised for later. Well, I suppose gaming will be a section of each of my blog posts from now on, huh?
I’m so excited for this reason : this is my first console war, from start to finish, that I’ve payed attention to. Sure, I (well, Mom and Ashley) got a Gamecube from day one, and I made a “blech!” sound whenever I read something about the PS2 or Xbox, but this is it. I’m ready this time. And, referring to what I said above, I’ve changed. Alot.
