I have recently gotten Dungeon Siege 2 and Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines. I expect to sink quite a few hours into those games. I am also pretty excited about Age of Empires 3 coming out in October. The previous Age of Empires series was entertaining, it is likely the tradition will continue. X-Box 360 and PS3 are also coming out in a couple months, it would be hard to choose which to buy. I would probably go with PS3 because the new Final Fantasy series promised to be among the line ups. In order to accomidate all these new games, I have finally updated my graphic card driver, which fixed a critical error that will disable video input when I am playing games that calls DirectX 9.0c. On another technical note, Google released their version of AIM called Google Talk. It requires a gmail address to sign up which luckily I have. The unfortunate side is that I don't know anyone who is interested in using Google Talk service. My US friends all us AIM and Taiwan friends use MSN. Hopefully Google Talk will be more popular later, because I would love to see Google beat out Microsoft (the evil empire).
