Finally, Halo 2 has arrived

Finally Halo 2 has arrived. Not the original copy I ordered though, it seems that copy is lost in the system or has been stolen. It always happens when you order something and want it quickly. Since I got it yesterday I have been playing on it a little bit and I like it. Some of the games you can play are great and being on Xbox Live, no lag is experienced and it all works nicely.

I tend to play games online more than playing the usual single player where you complete levels. I'll check out what single player is like soon but I don't really tend to play those kind of games much especially when there is a multiplayer online option instead, be it Xbox Live or online on the PC or PS2.

There was a chance to play Halo 2 on the cinema screen this weekend, I was meant to go and check it out but I did not bother in the end. It would have been good though, as it is great on the smaller screen too.

Being able to link your Xbox Live account to the Bungie site allows you to see your statistics and such which is another good thing. You can add people to your friends list as well to easily setup games which is handy. I've not checked out many of the different game styles you can play yet but I like what I have seen so far. Halo 2 is another great game to add to the list of good online enabled games recently. Others include Doom 3 & Half Life 2. I'm yet to get HL2 but will so shortly I think. Doom 3 on the PC is good and I'll probably get it for the Xbox too.

Now that there are a lot of Xbox Live titles available I think I'll have to go through checking them out to see which ones I want to get. There is quite a few I can think of, some of which people I know have got so that makes it more fun when you are playing people you know and hopefully beating them!

I can see me spending a lot of time now playing games, time is something we could all do with more of. When the day comes when my business operations allow for me to cover my salary then I'll have more time for doing what I want.

I think the new schemes that companies in the UK are introducing is great. You buy more holiday. In other words, get paid a bit less but get more time off. People and times are changing. No longer do people want to be spending their life working, instead they want to be living life, doing what they want to be doing. Hopefully more companies will take this idea and make it reality.

At least you'll have the choice, which is the most important thing. For me, I'll just take the option of running my own business operations where I am the risk taker rather than working for someone else who is. With risk, comes rewards.

So, it all depends on what you are. Are you a risk taker that wants to be free to do as you please or are you someone who will leave the risks to someone else but also let them take all the rewards?

I know which I am, it's time to change & enjoy life even more!
