When does anything ever go according to plan anyway?
On the way home from work today I realized that I've lived here for just over a year now. It's really pretty hard to believe; it seems like just a couple of months ago I was in Atlanta trudging my way through Tech. I can't exactly say I'm enamoured with the area or anything, but I guess overall things haven't been too bad. Looks like I'll be here for at least a while longer, though, as I've just taken a new job. Maybe things will change and something interesting will happen for once... Nah.
So, as you probably surmised from the comic, I am now the owner of a shiny new gamecube. The recent price drop finally gave mean excuse to get one, so I took it. Along with the cube I picked up Super Monkey Ball, Sega Soccer Slam, and SSBM. The Sega games are excellent, of course. SMB is a neat little puzzler; a bit on the easy side, but I have yet to take on the advanced courses. SSS is an incredibly stylish soccer game. I almost want to call the the NBA Jam of soccer games, but it's really a good bit deeper and more intricate than that. Much more appealing than FIFA if you just want to have a quick go of it. SSBM is another matter. I picked it up more or less on a whim -- I wasn't really impressed with the N64 incarnation, and I knew this one was also a button masher extraordinaire. I've been playing around with the training mode a bit since my first ridiculous run through, and while there's certainly more there than a single button, it's not much more.
On that note I bid you, dear children, adieu.
