Another FYI...

I finally have 360! Hooray!

So...my personal PGR3 review...meh. It's ok. I'm underwhelmed, to be honest. However, I am really enjoying Quake 4. ;-)

XBOX 360 Kiosk DVD

Don't know if anyone else caught this, but the "Experience the XBOX 360" demo DVD used in retial outlets has been posted to the interent. I managed to find, download, and successfully burn the disc. If anyone else wants a copy, let me know and we'll work out a way to cover the cost of a blank DVD and shipping & handling. It's more of a cool thing to have and put in your XBOX 360, but it is very cool.

Ultimate Ferrari

Ok, ladies and gents. Here it is, the ultimate $1,800,000.00 Ferrari. Only a few made, Lady Death already has his on order. The rest of us will have to wait for a Project Racing 3 expansion pack download. Damn, $1.8 M (walking around money to Lady Death), and it is not even street legal...

About PGR 3

For those of you who haven't played PGR3 yet i feel sorry for you, but for those of you who have played the game and are wondering what is with the leagues and how all that works, here ya go:

Each league is seperated by the type of medal you are going for (for example silver)
Each league has 1000 people in the league. For example Dren posted that he is #1 in League 13. Well then he is actually ranked 13,000.

Platinum are first then Gold then Silver then bronze then steel........

A Goal For Lady & Titan

Where is everyone?

Looks like that between the holiday season, and some of us having XBOX 360, and some not, the gang has had difficulty linking up recently.

So, if you don't have an XBOX 360 yet, don't forget Venom's XBOX 360 Inventory Locator seems to still be a good resource.

Ok, if you do have a 360, what games did you get with it, and what games are you looking forward to with Clan members? I got PGR3 of course, and Quake 4. I'm looking for Full Auto to be a good game. But other than that, I haven't seen much that excites me.

Speaking of Full Auto, there is a demo of it on the January Offical XBOX Magazine (OXM). There is also mention on one of the pages that Microsoft intends to make the majority of Original XBOX games backward compatible, and they have added some more games to the XBOX Backward Compatible List.

I added a couple of cars to the Project Gotham Car Pics blog today. If anyone else out there is looking for a cheap digital camera that is of questionable quailty, but works, I found a Philips Keychain Digital Camear at Wal Mart. It only costs $14.97. If you buy it, be sure to read the instructions on the CD and don't auto-install the software if you want it to work with XP. It takes decent pictures, you can see another picture at Unruly Behavior.

Titan, Two Bigs, Lady, how does the weekend of April 28 to May 1 sound for a visit? think my best choice is to fly into Philly and ride up with the Coxes and Lady. I'll take Friday and Monday as vacation days, and be as little trouble to everyone as possible. Any of you guys They Might Be Giants fans? If they are playing in NYC that weekend, I would like to see them. It is their home turf, and would be really cool. Don't know what else to plan/do for the weekend, figure a visit to Ground Zero and Orange County Choppers would be in order.

Well, hope everyone (Lady, Titan and Venom) gets a 360 soon. That way I can show you all what a dominant PGR3 racer I have become. :)

Cya!

Better late...

...then never, they say. I pre-paid and pre-ordered for my 360 on December 30. Hopefully I'll have it in the next couple weeks. The guy at the store near here told me he had 300 pre-orders to fill, and is down to 30 left. So I shouldn't be too far behind that.

Oh, and he also offered me part time work (I don't know what it is with these damn EB stores...I have some sort of magnetism with them. Every time I go into one I get offered a job. Seriously, it's really weird LOL). I haven't decided for sure, but I think I'll do it. Won't hurt to pick up a shift or two a week at EB again, and get 15% off any and all 360 stuff I want. Sweet.

In other (more important) news...[edited - This webpage comes up on a google search of "Spicytaco". This could spell trouble, so I'm taking it out...and asking that any references to this particular thing be avoided. Thanks all!].
