Where Art Thou?

Between watching the Kroger's being built next door to work and trying to decide if I really want an Xbox 360, it's been very busy around the Casa del Mix. Seriously, I have been up to my ears in distractions.

I have found the time to play a few games, namely Call of Duty 2 and The Movies.

I'm a big fan of the WWII games, even though there's a ton. Call of Duty was one of the better games in the genre, and the sequel is just more/bigger/better. It doesn't really innovate, but the new health system that everyone is stealing from Halo lets you stay in the action without worrying about where your next magical health pack is going to come from. Helps the flow. Graphically it's great, with the fancy bump-mapping and great smoke effects. Game of the Year? Probably not but any FPS fan should check it out.

The Movies started strong, but I've lost my interest a bit. It's fun to build your studio, but I've reached a point in the game where I'm just basically 'maintaining' my studio, which turns out to be not much fun. Keeping stars happy isn't my idea of a good time. I haven't sat down and just played with the Sandbox mode, where I assume you can use everything the game has to offer to make a movie. That might be fun, but at the moment I have no clue as to what I would make.

My wife might like it though.
