The Hell Has Frozen: I Got An Xbox360

If you ever told me that I’m going to buy an Xbox360 a year ago, I’d have laughed at you while bitch slapping you silly, and even deleted you from my gaming circa for not realizing my tastes in videogames. Now calm down, I’m not saying the Xbox360 is a bad console, not at all. Arguably, it’s probably the best console for this generation. However, the reason that made me avoid it all these years, it’s because it’s a very “American-heavy” console; that is, it is catering to the typical American gamer mentality. I’m more like a Japanese gamer; I favor RPGs, Adventure, and 2D-fighting games over Shooters, Action, and 3d-fighting games. I also enjoy the narrative, collective aspect of a story than being the central subject of the game.

But things started to change. The Xbox360 is getting some nice exclusive RPG games as a pointed out in one of my previous posts, and I cannot sit idle while witnessing those games being released one after the other. Not until last week that I made up my mind and decided to go ahead and snag me one and so far it has been a great ride.

Tales of Vesperia is just plain awesome and tons of fun and I cannot stop from enjoying every aspect of it. The Orange Box is really great, and Portal is simply a work of genius. There are so many great games I’ve missed and I cannot wait to play them. Don’t worry, I’ll be buying some Shooter games as well (i.e. BioShock), which should add a little bit of versatility to my reviews. In the mean time, here’s my Gamertag. Feel free to add me if you want.



P.S. Excuse me for begin a total typical Kuwaiti gamer by adding the “Q8” at the end of my Gamertag. I tried my birthday and stuff but they were all taken, so I had to settle down with this one.
