So my xbox 360 got the RROD a couple of months ago. This would have really pissed me off if my cousin/roommate didn't have one as well so I just used his. Well his is starting to die(freezing/saw the RROD for a while before it decided that it was in fact working) so I'm kinda only using it to watch videos. I didn't really think mine still qualified for the free repair. Well turns out I'm still qualified until the 29th so I'm just now sent a request off. So that's the hurray part. The dismay is the fact that Mass Effect 2 comes out the 26th so my xbox won't be fixed in time. :/

So as I said previously I'm reading Memories of Ice, the third book in the Malazan series, by Steven Erikson. About a third of the way through it and I gotta say I'm really digging this series. I'm not sure its for everyone has the plot can get for complicated and confusing and there are hundreds of characters(maybe thousands but I haven't read the other books yet). Once you get past the first book which was a little hard to get into at first cause you're just thrust into the world without any preamble and not a lot if any explaining how things work but once you start to get its a pretty good book. The next book was amazing imo. Won't go into many details but there is like 4 to 5 storylines going on and I really like how they interacted and connected. And so far this one is shaping up to be just as good as the second.

Playing Final Fantasy XII. Never got to play it when it first came out and I've had for a while now but never really started it. So far I'm liking it and not liking it at the same time. I'm not really sure what I think of the story right now. The combat fun, even if the gambit system is making me lazy. Balthier and Fran are some awesome characters though.

Watching Samurai Champloo. Its an anime made by the guy that made Cowboy Bebop. So far I'm really digging it. Also not sure if anyone has ever watched the Hellsing anime but they've been releasing OVA's that follow the Manga and the newest one was pure fucking win.

Here's a pic of Roland from the Dark Tower series which I still need to fucking finish btw.
