Xbox mostly  
Chris got his Metal Core guitar pedal today. It's really cool and does make his guitar sound better and heavier. It was so cute to see him so excited about it and everyday waiting on the mail. He was home when the UPS truck arrived and ran out there before the guy even got out of his truck hehe. I know that feeling. That's how I was when I was waiting for my chickens when I ordered them last year.

Well today I decided to finally plug my Xbox into the internet again and update it. I had a bunch of stuff for Fallout and Mass Effect 2 that I needed to update. But mostly the main thing that caused me to finally plug back in was that I wanted to get these new dinosaur pets for my avatar. There are five: a pteranodon, a raptor, a T-rex, a stegosaurus and a triceratops. I bought the raptor (of course), the T-rex and the triceratops. I also bought a lab coat for Owen. But it's closed in the front. Darn it. It's so hard to find open ones of full length in these games now. But he's more accurate now. I made a video so check this out.

I took some "screen captures" too so I'll put those behind the cut.

Here's Owen in his new lab coat. This is from the Resident Evil 5 download. I wish it were open in the front. It's a full suit with pants. Wish we could color these outfits as a blue shirt would looking stunning on him. Oh I also updated my avatar. There are many emotions to chose from and I chose an angry one of course. You can change the backgrounds now too not just pick a color. I appropriately gve him flames. You can see those in the sidebar in my gamer tag. I picked the emotion called "Anger management failure". Hehe.

Here he is with is raptor.

A different view. I like that the raptor tries to jump and bite his fingers.

Petting the triceratops.

I took these close up because he was afraid of the T-rex. I like that his fear expression looks more like trying to control his anger to me.

Again I love that this looks like anger.

This is for my own reference but I wrote down the parts to use to make Owen and Cope. So if anyone wants to make them here's how.

Hair - Left Curved Parting. Color lightest yellow
Eyes - Kind. (hehe yeah right). Color lightest blue
Eyebrows - Bendy. Color black
Body size - Far left and top right
Ears - Shaped
Nose - Hooked
Chin - Long
Mouth - Curvey
Glasses - Metallic Carbon Shades

Hair - Teased Spikes. Color light brown
Eyes - Tranquil. Color light green
Eyebrows - Studious. Color light brown
Body - Far left and second one up
Ears - Prominent
Nose - Romantic
Chin - Long
Mouth - Puzzled
Glasses - Studious

So the only reason I hadn't plugged in my xbox was because I liked my dashboard being dark. Now I have to put up with ugly white blinding menus. I'll post a comparison of the old and new menus another time.

Chris will be excited! I can just imagine that heavy metal sound! I'm happy for Chris that he was home when it arrived :) I hope he gets to play with you while making that heavy metal sound :)

I think Owen looks fine in that lab coat. I agree with you that it doesn't really look like fear in either fear pic. In the second one it does look like anger.

Hehe, as you see he's quite pleased.

Yeah, it's better than the outfit he had before. Yeah I thought he looked more angry than scared.

Yes, I can see he is! I wish you two many fun hours together :)

Owen's pets are cute! I like in the video he started petting the T-Rex in the end. The Stegosaurus was cute.

I like this new feature a lot. I may buy the last two eventually. Yeah he was afraid but then realized it wasn't going to hurt him so he petted it.

The dinosaur pets are pretty neat. I like all the detail on them. You did a good job designing Owen on that creator, too.

Yeah they're pretty well made. Thanks. I did what I could when you're forced to have a cutesy avatar.
