I have become addicted to the Halo FPS on the Xbox Mette Marie gave me for my 0x21st birthday. My birthday isn't before February 7th, but the Xbox was cheap now, and she's absolutely horrible at keeping presents a secret, something I suspect runs in her family, so she gave it to me right away. Best present ever.

Included in the box were Halo and Midtown Madness 3. I also got two more games; Rainbow six 3, which looks very promising, and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, which totally fails to engage me, just like any other Tolkien based game I've ever seen on PCs and gameboxes. It just doesn't work outside the books and Jacksons movie masterpieces. Anything less is a disgrace.
