It's Sunday night in Ohio, around 7pm... and the snow hasn't stopped falling since early this afternoon. Around 8 inches it seems, maybe more. Nothing cataclysmic, but for the 1st snow of the season, it's pretty hefty. Needless to say, driving to Target to do some X-Mas shopping was an adventure.
Bought the wife some iPod portable speakers for her desk at work, in exchange for her solemn oath that I can have my Xbox 360 as soon as it arrives. Once I find out the tracking info, whatever day it's due to hit my doorstep I'll likely be sick... cough, cough.
While we were at Target, I meandered over to the 360 display and had myself some quality time with NBA 2K8. You might not think it by reading this blog, or looking at the sexy devil in the upper left corner of this page, but in my junior and senior high school years, I was one heck of a basketball player. No prodigy, but I was 6'3", 220lbs and I had the soft touch of Larry Nance to boot and wasn't too poky for a big guy either. Not 1 or 2 spot material, more like a short power forward. And though over the years, I play less and less and care little about the NBA or collegiate ball... I simply cannot resist the draw of a solid NBA video game. And solid is about the best word to describe NBA 2K8.
I didn't want to leave the kiosk, let alone the store. Looks like I can add one game to a growing list of titles that call to me. Might be the 1st sports game in about 3 years I like. Huzzah!
