Holiday gamin'

I finished Super Paper Mario tonight. I admit that I used a walk-through a couple of times because I often get lazy when it comes to certain puzzles. It wasn't a bad game, and it was a pretty neat idea, but sometimes the story was just annoying. Button, button, button to skip the text.

I still have Halo 3 to finish, and I also have Super Mario Sunshine (the Gamecube game) that I picked up pretty cheap. I'd still like to go back and finish SpongeBob Battle for Bikini Bottom and Splinter Cell (both original Xbox titles).

New stuff I'm interested includes Tomb Radier: Anniversary (Xbox 360 version), and I admit to being curious about the Half-Life Orange Box collection, also on the 360. I remember playing the original Half-Life back in 1998 or something and jumping out of my chair because it was so creepy. I'm just not sure if I have the stamina for another shooter.

They did a console update for the Xbox 360 that includes a simple browser to show video clips about Xbox stuff. One of the new features is that you can buy original Xbox games. They have a handful to start. I have Halo, and I'm somewhat interested in the Crash Bandicoot game they're offering. It's quite a leap from the Arcade titles. They also have Transformers available in HD for rental.

Portal on the 360 should be pretty sweet.
