Do Consoles Blog of Electric Sheep?

Will wonders never cease? Apparently even my Xbox 360 has a blog now. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if my little workhorse of a console announced a cure for cancer within a fortnight.

In other news, I've been playing a lot of Dead Rising, whilst my cohort Aaron has been slaving away at GRAW.

I've also been playing some Battle for Middle Earth II with Rich and his cadre of capable junior combatants. We even found a bug:

It only happened once, but lasted so long I was able to fraps it. What happened was one of the members of the ringbearer "party" was unable to enter the town center for reasons unknown... and so it tried over and over again. The solution was sacking the town center, which ultimately released the ring. A second attempt to store it in a new town center worked fine. Still, this is a bug that needs to be fixed, assuming it can be reproduced in a development environment.

Here's the second attempt, just as evidence of what should happen, as well as to prove that the game wasn't totally bugged out. :)
