I Hate Mr. Owl
I'm often told that I'm an Xbox 360 fanboy, as evidenced by my lopsided coverage. Well, that's because the respective libraries of games are fairly lopsided. Believe it or not, I look forward to solid PlayStation 3 releases. Well, I'm now wishing that Fat Princess were an Xbox release, because it's a FUN PS3 GAME (see there, I said it!) and I don't have any PS3 buddies to enjoy it with online. If you dudes who hate on my supposed Xbox bias would like to add me to your friends' list, I'd love to run it with you! I'll have a review of it soon, but in short it's a class based multiplayer capture the flag game with a sprinkling of real time strategy elements. And the flags are princesses. That you feed cake to. To make them fat. Because fat flags are hard to capture.
I'm slowly catching back up to my workload I missed because of jury duty a couple weeks back. I'm looking forward to returning to Far Cry 2; its concept as an open world first person shooter is definitely intriguing.
