It's been about two years since I built my current computer (Athlon 1.4GHz) so I figured it was about time to upgrade. Of course, the new Half-Life 2 videos had something to do with this. :-) Anyway, the new computer parts are all ordered. Pentium 4 2.6GHz C, Asus P4P800 (Springdale), Corsair PC3200 DDRAM, Sapphire ATI Radeon 9700 Pro, etc. Hopefully, I'll get everything by the weekend.
As far as games go, I finally bought a Game Boy Advance SP. I got Metroid Fusion and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. I'm about half-way through Fusion right now; definitely liking it better than Prime. The storyline is keeping everything interesting whereas Prime felt very distant and impersonal. Also downloaded the extra Splinter Cell level Kola Cell for XBox-Live and promply beat it. It was short but hard just because there were so few checkpoints. Still thoroughly enjoyed it though. The plan is to beat Fusion and hopefully continue on Zelda. I suppose I might just get the new Tomb Raider even though the past 3 have all been disappointments.
