I didn't get the
opportunity to post yesterday. With t being the start of my
first real vacation in an age, I just had way too much to do
and...well, you know the rest. At least I was able to do
things right by starting my first real vacation day with some beers
with my dad.
Anyway, before I say
anything else, I have to say this; the Seahawks need to release
Jeremy Stevens...and now. If you watched the Seahawks game on
Sunday, you would have seen two obvious and stupid things. The
first was more of the standard play of Stevens. A ball coming
towards him? Well, he better keep his arms positioned to allow
the ball to harmlessly fall to the ground. He's running with
the ball? Then he better be ready to fumble with the most
impressive of flair. I really hope that Holmgren gave Stevens
a nice knee to the groin after that impressive performance.
The second thing you
must see with a Seahawk's game is the complete failure of one side
of things at all times. If the defense is going strong, then
the offense better suffer (with countless turnovers). If the
offense is good, then it's the special teams that must suffer.
No matter how the game is played, if it's the Seahawk's who are
playing, then some aspect must be crap-tacular.
On a different note, I
am still happily living in the last month. I have no PS3, and
sure as hell have no plans to buy one anytime soon. With that
sort of price tag and with that lack-luster of a launch, I can
definitely wait for the circumstances to change. Plus, it
sounds like the 360 is not the only system of this generation to
have "technical issues".
As for the Wii...I'm
still waiting for delivery. I should be playing with my Wii
(*insert bad joke here*) in a hair over 24 hours. However, it
sounds like the Wii is having some of the amazing technical issues
as well. In particular, a good number of demo units (like
those seen in Wii demo kiosks) had made their way into the retail
pipeline. I would include a link, but I'm fighting to type
this enough on it's own (my keyboard decided that "I" is an
over-rated key...notice any lack of "i" and that's why).
Anyway, if you get a Wii that demands you to enter the "start disk"
or something like that and that's the reason.
It doesn't help that the
Wii, like with any recent console launches, is lacking in the
accessories department. I don't mean that there are no
accessories, but rather that there are none available in stores.
Once I have my Wii in hand, I can assure you that I don't want to be
the only one playing with my Wii at a given time (*insert a half
dozen jokes there). However, this was the same situation that
we saw with the 360 and it's controllers and battery packs...so, it
comes as no surprise. I just hope, while Nintendo is pumping
out the consoles, that some more Wii-motes and nunchuks comes along
Anyway, I think it's time I stop this post and run out to buy a new
keyboard (and then play some more FFV Advance...my current
addiction). Hopefully, I'll be able to post some Wii
