End of an Era

I have officially entered into a trade for my Xbox. I'm getting a pile of mostly Gamecube games and some cash. Back in the dizzy-day, I got my Xbox for 5 games: Halo, Jet Set Radio Future, Morrowind, Obi-Wan, and . . . I don't even remember now. But after the initial game-getting, what happened to the Xbox? Pretty much everything I want for it, or play on it, it available for other systems. Deus Ex 2 and Soul Calibur 2, for example, are the games I want most for the Box. One's coming for PC as well, the other for Playstation 2 and Gamecube.

So it's gone. I'd say I'll miss it, and I probably will when Halo 2 gets released. And I'm sure I will when I enter the Halo tournament this month with no practice.

So now I can go get a Gamecube. But I don't really want to. I think. I don't know. It would be my first ever console purchased with my own money, and, and . . .ahhh! Confusatron! Want games, but don't want games all the time. Want social life too. But . . . games.

I think it's time to go home.
