Turnips with faces
So, all three of the nex-gen consoles have been unveiled in some capacity, but none of them have made much of an impact on me. Maybe it's just because it is being launched so soon after the original, but the Xbox 360 is not bringing the kind of radical leap forward in graphics that I've come to expect from a new generation of consoles. Do the videos and screenshots of Perfect Dark Zero and Ghost Recon 3 really look significantly better than Xbox titles like Conker or SC: Chaos Theory? I was pretty underwhelemed. The PS3 stuff looks a bit more advanced, but there's a lot less of it and much of it appears to be actual in game footage.
And as for the Nintendo Revolution... people already seem to have a lot of strong opinions about it, which is kind of funny considering all Nintendo showed us was the system's casing. The online service sounds cool -- it'll let you download and play Nintendo games ranging from the Cube all the way back to the NES -- but it doesn't say much about what the new games will be like. I am looking forward to finding out more about the actual console itself -- what it does, how it does it and what the games will be. But Nintendo seems to be keeping a lid on it for now.
Speaking of Nintendo, my Gamecube ebay auction ends sometime on Thursday night. Like I promised before, if the buyer is a reader, as an extra thingy I will throw in a drawing I did the other day of Fuzzy biting Mario on the head. I like you guys better than other humans.
