crash boom bang!

I was sitting in the living room getting started on the day when I heard some loud noises. Garbage truck? no... it's a caterpillar eating the old apartment across the alley. It's kind of disturbing how fast that thing is eating into the building. Hmm, maybe I should go move the car (it's parked on this side of the alley)

In other news we have a new entertainment center. I spent the weekend putting it together. We couldn't find anything that we liked so I started with an Ivar cabinet unit from Ikea and added wheels and a turn table. I did some wire management magic to the back of it and I think that it came together quite nicely. Then Julie bought me Metroid Prime 2, so I have something to do with it.

Ok, going to go move the car now... that just makes me too nervous.

we went to ikea last weekend, too. whee.

It's just like mp1 really. New story line, new monsters to blow up. You lose most of your abilities and weapons in the first 15 minutes of course (wouldn't be metroid otherwise, right?)

I do have one small gripe with the game. At least in the beginning it feels like you are being pushed through a very linear storyline. mp1 was more open and free while this game kinda forces you on a certain path, at least at the beginning. They do this by basically locking all the doors behind you or making you jump down a hole too deep to jump back out of. I'm only a little way into the game though and already it has opened up a whole lot to the point where I'm not always sure where to go, so here's hoping that it's only the first part of the game that is like that.

That's really a minor gripe anyway, the game is awesome even with that.

I took pictures (not very good ones) maybe I'll have to post one or something.
