I finished Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, a surprisingly fun game. I then went back and finished Pitfall 3D: Beyond the Jungle, too. The latter is interesting in that it's not really a 3D game, just a 3D perspective on a 2D game. Were someone writing a thesis on the evolution of 3D games, I would suggest Pitfall, Jumpin' Flash, and Super Mario 64 as case studies.

I didn't find much to phone home about in Star Wars Racer Revenge for PlayStation 2. LucasArts is a great company, but very often their games are of a quality inferior to the movies. Maybe that high bar is the problem; what games can live up to George's original trilogy?

I discovered a wiring problem with my subwoofer yesterday. A bit of work later, and my entertainment looks and sounds much better. Too bad the weather is too nice outside for me to stick myself in front of a television. Besides, after playing some of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, I have the strangest hankering to play the Ninja Gaiden trilogy and Super Mario World. That way lies madness… (as in, no sleep until I put Bloody Malth in his place, again and again)
