I can’t be dealing with all this Christmas malarkey at the minute. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but it seems to be getting harder and harder to find decent presents. I know people would be happy with a lot of things, but I like to get stuff that is nice, or individual. Seems like the big companies like I Want One Of Those and Firebox seem to not only be selling the generic crap that you could get anybody, but the cool stuff that was new/hard to find last year.
On another note, I’ve been playing Gears of War 2 pretty much all afternoon, after spending some time putting Christmas trees and lights up. I have a thing for co-op games, some things are so much more fun when you’re playing with a friend, and you get some decent teamplay going on. It’s nice to have a change from all the competitiveness of most other multiplayer games, and it seems to keep my interest a lot longer. Having said that, I’ll probably buy a 360 and Gears 2 soon anyway, and play through on my own. Chainsawing baddies never gets old!
The search for presents continues…(I’d disclose what I’ve got people, but you never know who’s reading)
