First off, the site is looking splendid with the new layout. Can't fault it at all. I know some people aren't too keen on it, the site as a whole and certain parts of it, but personally, I love it. The chat room is a new addition I'm pretty fond of too, not many people have been using it, but I'm sure it'll pick up soon enough. If not, I'll continue to talk to myself in there... all good.
Without Xbox Live, I'm bored of gaming. I knew before I got my 360 that I'd be relying heavily on Live for my entertainment. I never really thought about what I'd do without it actually, but the answer, as I know it now, is nothing. I rarely play, and if I do, I can't play for more than 30minutues without wanting to turn it off. I tend to find myself awaiting impatiently for the end of a mission, race, map, whatever you want to call it, so I can turn it off without the previous amount of time being in vain. I don't really play alot of different games anyway, the usual suspects, Halo3, COD4, Gears, GTA4, and Civilization. In light of the fed-up state of mind I have with the Xbox, I gave away 17 of my 360 games to a friend. Star Wars, BattleField and Bioshock amongst them, good games, but I just didn't want them anymore.
I guess I just need something new. Luckily, there's quite a good choice in the next month. I'm on a budget for the moment, so I gotta stretch what I got left and make it count for a while. Fable 2 is looking essential, RPG's tend to be long games. Even though it's not my thing, I need to make it last. Then there's Left 4 Dead, which is starting to grow on me. Not to mention Gears 2. I want Saints Row2, too. But I dunno about that right now. Times are tough, money is tight and I've no Live! Blah.
I'm in pretty high spirits at the moment. I'm waiting for this house moving thing to get going. But God knows it's taking a while. I'm comfortable here for now, and I'm not having any family issues. Change is good though, so I'm eager to get moving and then I can get settled again. Being uprooted really isn't fun, I feel bad for the trees.
Speaking of change, I found a friend was not operating in my best interest when they made a decision to broadcast theirselves all over the place. I wasn't impressed with the way that got back to me and how much was known from outsiders. It's like when two people you associate with don't like each other for no reason, and then one day actually meet, and then direct their anger for each other, at you, for no reason at all (For fear of it going to waste maybe?) Except this time it was only one person re-directing their unjustified anger at me and the other person was just oblivious to the whole thing. It's complicated, as most things regarding other people are. Still, telling the people who don't really have your best interests at heart (after you've done anything and everything you could for them when they needed help), to go away, really works a treat. Problem Solved.
Yesterday, my aunt went into town with my mother, for whatever it was my aunty wanted. She drops my mum off and then heads home in a Taxi. Somehow, and I've been trying to picture it in my mind since yesterday, she fell out of the Taxi, flat on her face. She's broke her nose, two fingers on each hand, fractured the other two on each hand, fractured her leg, hip and cheek and is bruised all over. Although it's not the time for gloating, I do believe it's safe to say that, that would not have happened if I was still there. Well, I guess you never really know what you had until you fall on your face and break some bones eh?
Oh well, I guess that's it from me.
Have a nice day, hope you had a good weekend.
Stay Safe, Good And Well.
P.S. Since I'm no longer on Live, should I still be on this Xbox Live site? Just a thought.
