Yep, it’s been about a month and this means it is time for an update. Well .. as expected UPS is terrible. I never got the package, and had to wait until the repair order showed as ‘canceled, no repair’. Which is finally did. Time to try again.

Yep .. I jumped the bandwagon and bought a copy for my xbox360 last week and played daily. Since I played daily (and I am not a gamer) you can tell that I like the game.

A working version of XP so I can play my old games like Half Life 2 and Counter Strike: Source. And .. I had to write a review which required native Windows (no emulation) for a specific benchmark program.
