E3 is over, and I want an XBOX 360!

XBox Elite

When the next-gen consoles came out years ago, I knew I was going to get a Nintendo Wii, then Revolution.   Nintendo is a staple in my home, it was the other two I was stuck on.   Should I get a Xbox 360 or the PS3?   At first I was totally into the PS3 mainly because of the Blu-ray drive (HD-DVD is crap, I called it years ago.), but the 360 was released earlier than the PS3 and had a bunch of great games.   So for the past couple of years, I've been torn.

E3, Electronic Entertainment Expo, has come and gone.   Lots of cool stuff is coming out for both systems, video streaming, Final Fantasy XIII, and much more.   Most importantly, to me anyway, is FF XIII and the video streaming.   We have a Netflix account that allow us to watch movies online, but I don't have my PC hooked up to a TV or a sound system, so I really don't use it.   Well, Netflix announced that they will stream these movies to the Xbox!   That is a seriously cool deal.   On top of the already cool fact that the Xbox will act as a media pc for my home theater, now it will play videos "on-demand!"

I think I made up my mind.   The PS3 is a sweet machine, but for me, I think I will have to go to the dark side and pick up an xbox 360.   Also, to match my current system, I think I am going with the black 360.   Hmm, the Xbox Elite is the only block console...   at $450!   Wow, well I guess I should start saving up...

On a Final Fantasy Kick, there should be a group…

I don't know why I have been jonesin' for some Final Fantasy.   I went searching my cd cases for all of my Final Fantasy music that I backed up to data CD's just in case (I lost all my mp3's some time ago, good thinking on my part! Yay!).   I uploaded them all to the Precious the other day and I have been listening non stop.

I got Final Fatnasy X-2 in the mail after trading one of Ciri's books on Swap Tree.   Heh heh.   Haven't had the time to play it, though.   I'm looking to get more FF games for the DS, especially FFTA2! I can play my DS anywhere, even while I am taking care of the baby.   She likes to sleep on me and when she does, I'm pretty much stuck on the couch... and TV gets boring.   So I'm hoping to come accross someone on Swap Tree that wants to trade FFTA2 for another stupid interesting book.   Oh yea, I forgot to mention I finally finished FFTA last week.   Kind of a weak ending, but it was still a lot of fun to play.   I was looking for my Final Fantasy Tactics for the PSX set and I couldn't find it.   I'm trying to remember if I traded it in at EB games at one point.   I remember the game was stupid hard, and I really hated it.   Now I want to give it a try again.   Oh well, one game at a time I guess.   Besides, I have many other projects I have to worry about right now.

Drawings of eyes…

I've been playing around with Art Rage lately.   I hear eyes are the hardest part to draw, so I started with those. Not too bad... still have a way to go, but still not bad at all.   I mean, for me anyway.   A friend from work let me borrow a book on drawing manga, it's been pretty helpful.   I think I am actually pretty good at drawing, I just need to learn the techniques.   The book really helps me with that.   I think I am going to shift over to inanimate objects for a bit, just so I don't get bored.   I also, want to come back to eyes later with a fresh mind.

The picture of Ciri came out REALLY orange.   It wasn't like that until I saved it into a JPEG.   For some reason (i'm guessing the compression) messed with the colors.   When I was drawing her, she was more pink than orange.   I like the set of two blue eyes, it came out pretty well shaded.   The eyes are close together, but still a good attempt.   The green eye was a failed attempt at a more realistic approach to the eye.   Yea, still need a lot of work.   Ok, well, there's another big storm overhead, and it's time for bed.   TGIF, though.   Oh yeah, tomorrow is happy iPhone day!   Ooo....   Just thought of a post for tomorrow...   Heh heh.   Ok, G'night, all.
