F-0 Is Better Than F-1

Been playing F-Zero GX a little too much those past two weeks. It's just too fast. Even if I'm really good, I still need lots of practicing, and my adrenaline level is higher than with any first-person shooter.

I even did a "realism test" by using the estimated length of the "Blue Falcon" (about 12m) to see if the speed (ranging from 0.5Mm/h to 1.5Mm/h; yes, Mega meters per hours) is real. And guess what, unlike Extreme G 3, it is. It's really fast.

It's still odd: When you start the game, you can see both the "Nintendo" and "Sega" logo on the screen, at the same time. Five years ago, that would have been an April's Fool joke.

And I think it's time I update my homepage. I'm now good enough with CSS, XHTML and XSLT to do something good. It may still be ugly, though.
