Updated my Motorola Milestone XT720’s OS to Android 2.2 and I have to say, despite the fact that this thing will never get Gingerbread (which is, from what I’ve found, unfortunately confirmed by Motorola), I appreciate the performance boost. My thanks go to Cincinnati Bell Wireless for posting the necessary software on the web.

This music is a lot like the rest of this game’s soundtrack. Until the end, which is admittedly some action filler (but exciting action filler nonetheless), it’s perfect music for driving on a rainy day. Makes you feel like you’re in a depressing romance film, which isn’t all too bad. Did I mention that it rains during the game? Like, almost the whole damn time?
Oh well. It wasn’t the greatest game to grace the Xbox 360, and would have done so much better as an expansion pack to Halo 3 instead of a full-blown $60 game (shifty eyes to Microsoft), but it had some memorable moments, namely the descent into the data hive. Dark, quiet. Difficult to see things without VISR turned on. Peaceful if you forgot the fact that there are aliens trying to kill you around the next corner. Enjoy the silence while you can.
