Firstly, let me exclaim about the fact that it is nearly the middle of January(!), and I have yet to make a post in 2009. Not that I'm surprised. However, my office is much neater, and I have had a few distractions.
Chiefly, I bought an Xbox 360 over the holiday. I had initially wanted to wait until I could lay my hands on a Jasper unit, but the Boxing Day sales were too enticing and their appearance in Canada is going to take some time. My will was broken by $60 discounts. I didn't get to set it up until I returned home from my family holiday away (after New Years), but I've been playing quite a bit already.Which leads me to...
My Very Important Questions
Which full games should I play?
Which arcade games should I buy?
Is Xbox Live Gold worth the money (for me)?
Also: Would you like to be my virtual friend?
My gamer tag now occupies a space to the right of the blog (if you are reading this via RSS, it's GhostInTheGame).

LEGO Star Wars (borrowed)
Viva Pinata (for Morgan)
Mass Effect (borrowed, currently playing)
Fable II (borrowed, Morgan likely to play first)
