Tomorrow I'm joining the army! Sweden has a fantastic thing - the (compulsory) military service, which today means that you *must* join the army, even though it's not hard at all to skip it. I kind of joined, so I'm being shipped away for 11 months. That doesn't mean it's time for me to say goodbye to Xboxyde, so I won't make this into a badass goodbye letter. See more inside.
I will be able to go home for 50-80% (I have no idea really) of the weekends, but I don't know how often I actually will go home. During some weekends of this year I will be a long distance from my home, so I will probably stay there. That means that I won't be writing that much news for Xboxyde in the upcoming year - at least I think so. Maybe I'll be able to have a laptop down there, who knows. Maybe I'll actually be able to at least visit the forums here and then.
Anyways, I won't make this into a sad letter where I write about how much I love writing here and read your comments and follow the hype of the 360 (and, err, Playsyde and PS3 of course!) - cause this isn't a goodbye, even though the topic says so. When I return I will buy the biggest HDTV I can find, together with a brand new X360 (I sold my recent one this week) - and 11 months of awesome games. I can't wait to buy Gears of War, NHL 07, Saint's Row and all the other kickass titles on the same day in June! I'll see you guys, and even though it won't be as often as it has been for the last months, I'll do my best to visit the place as often as I can.
during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (3 Hours ago)
if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (3 Hours ago)
I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (4 Hours ago)
Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: The complaints he has in that video are mostly valid I'd say, sadly. (4 Hours ago)
