Well guess what didn't show up in the lab today.. my reagents. Greeat. I stopped in the middle of my Racconus game to go, only to do more vial-labelling and pasteur pipette filter-making. Joy.

I love this new Sly Cooper game. Great graphics. only problem is, the camera angles suck. They're not very automatic, so if you don't keep moving it around, you don't see things. I've died about 324 times by now. But, I've completed a lot of the first level. It's easy on the continues and extra lives part. We'll see how far we get today.

I noticed the camera suckage at the store when I played it for a bit, but I still really liked it and will probably pick it up. Kingdom Hearts is really, really bad about the camera angles, even when it's sent to Manual, it still moves at bad times, and, worse, what way the camera is facing is foward on your controller, so the game litterally makes you jump in an arc sometimes. I still love it tho! How is SC otherwise? pretty graphics? fun play?

It's got Cel-shading (or whatever it's called) so the graphics are somewhat cartoon-ish, like Toejam&Earl or Earthworm Jim. Great shading, shadow work. You pick up little 'thieving skills' from each page of the little book you get (by collecting all of the code parts) which come in pretty handy at times. One thing, though, is the mini-games that you have to beat (they're annoying). And as far as beating the timed portion of the levels -- good luck! Other than that, excellent.

I'm thinking of getting TonyHawk and GTA. I tried to get kingdom hearts, but every time I go, they're out of it. I'd like to see if it's as good as the hype said.

KH is super fun, except a little camera frustration, and some cheap-ass stuff later on, when falling off the edge (which does not kill you, BTW) sucks a lot. TonyHawk is sweet for xbox, and GTA is super-fun. recommend!
