Bad demo

Call of Juarez is a pretty good time. I've played a bit of the single-player story, and it's decent. Not outstanding, but solid, and entertaining. Though the sole purpose of playing the Billy missions seems, to me, to just get to more Revered Ray. If you like westerns though, it's great.

Multi-player is an absolute blast though. There are some lag issues in games with more than 8 people, but there's a huge variety of game modes and maps. I'm thinking about possibly arranging some play time tomorrow afternoon. If you have call of Juarez, and want to play for an hour or two say tomorrow around 3pm EST, send me a friend request (Absath) tonight. I'm going to be checking profiles to see if Call of Juarez is listed as a played game, so that slots on my friends list go to people that really want to play tomorrow.

I also picked up Forza 2, honestly for the sole purpose of playing with the car painter and seeing what I can come up with. I wouldn't be surprised if I never race a single car though.

Also a demo for Overlord just came out on the marketplace. Looks interesting. Style reminds me a lot of Dungeon Keeper 2.

First paint job

Well it took a few hours, and some 300 layers, but I finished my first Forza 2 custom paintjob.

At first the painter mode was tough to get a grasp on. Mostly just the resizing with the X and Y axis. But by the end I think I felt a lot more comfortable with it. It's just really tedious work.

I even took the car for a drive after. Beat the first event. On the easiest setting, heh.

I'm not sure how the auction thing works yet, but maybe I can make some of these available at some point.

Audi TT Coupe Forza Auction

Ok I made a second car with the Ethan paint and put it up in the auction thingy if anyone wanted it. I'm only going to make three, and I'm keeping one for myself.

Update: Wow, ok, that was fast. It sold within 15 minutes. Umm, I'll try to get another one up soonish.
