I know I haven't been blogging much lately. There are several reasons for this, but the task taking up most of my free time has been trying to defeat General RAAM. He's the ugly MOFO you see below:
If I haven't mentioned already, farrah's Christmas present to me was an XBOX 360. From previous posts you probably know I gave her a Wii for her birthday. So now we have games system to the hilt - only lacking a Playstation 3 - which I see plunking down any change for anytime soon.
farrah knows I was debating the merits of an XBOX 360 versus a Playstation 3. But when I started gushing about how "Gears of War" looked pretty cool on the XBOX 360, she pulled the trigger on it as my present. (Wow, what a wife!)
GOW has been a pretty fun game. A bloody, violent and profanity laced adventure which is all you can ask for in a shoot 'em up type game. But killing General RAAM, the last boss in the game, doesn't take the normal blunt force trauma method. It required numerous precise shots to his noggin while his shield of flying friends are not surrounding him. Oh, he's also armed with a gatlin gun that can cut you in half, so it even makes it more difficult.
It took me the good part of a week to finally kill him. And now that game part is over and I have more free time to blog...and to play "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" on the Wii.
