Installed Windows 8 over the weekend. At first, it was a little jarring. The changes are sweeping. Im not sure how I feel still about basically the start menu being expanded to an entire screen – which is basically what happened. The live tiles concept is neat. I’m not really a fan of forcing “metro” style apps to run full screen – as I have a fairly large screen and typically development environments are the only programs I ever run maximized. Still need to play with it some more – but at 39.99 for the Pro upgrade, it was too much to pass up!
Picked up Need for Speed: Most Wanted on total impulse and I’m fairly addicted to it. Its definitely a quality racing game and I love the “Midnight club” feel to the game (as I was a huge fan of Midnight Club). Looks like Halo 4 is getting incredible reviews as well, so I just preordered that today (comes out next week). Too many games this month!!
