Infamous

Having a blast so far. Right now I'm on the second district and I finish one of the mission on destroying the terrorist buses.

Re: The last video game you bought

Finally found on Amazon (with free super saver shipping), a copy of Konami Classics Volume 1 on 360 for under $10 ($9.98). I had to get a few more things saved in my cart to make the $25 (things I actually wanted though), but I think $10 was well worth it for Symphony of the Night and Super Contra on disc (I already have Frogger) rather than pure DLC.

Finally stumbled into one of the local pawn shops where I moved to, and I found a few original XBOX gems for $4 a pop:

Dungeon crawler night at me and the misses' house is a roarin' good time, yet we've never actually played through the first Dark Alliance. That will, obviously, change in the near future.

Well, there is a perfectly legitimate way to make money on the deal. Amazon trade in value is 27.50 right now.

I envy you all that find wives willing to game or be into film. I've yet to find a girlfriend into either. There needs to be an eHarmony for geeks.

Thanks. Although, knowing me, I'll forget about it and end up keeping it.

Just picked up Call of Duty 4 at a pawn shop for 15 bucks. The only game in that series i've played is World at War. I thought it was a hella fun shooter. What should i expect from this one?

Or, he could just return it from the same place he got it from. What a novel concept. Actually, maybe he should email them and ask them to credit him some $$ because Blur wasn't up to his tastes, and still keep the game!!111

Most recently got Oblivion GOTY for PS3 and then Quantum of Solace PS3 before that. Both are great games and I paid $25 for both new.

Having just finally gotten around to playing World at War, I'd say you should expect a significantly better game.

I remember going to a website that was centered around geek dating. Can't remember the name of the site but a quick google search should show up. It does charge but from what i remember they seemed legit.

Re: The last video game you bought

My purchases are going to pretty much halt now, but I had to sneak in one for this on the 360:



During my time on the "inferior" PS3 build, I only hammered through the main storyline and the skim-off-the-surface of the Brotherhood of Steel expansion -- which glitched up on me at a point where I'd have to use the most recent previous save, conveniently placed right after I beat the game. So, when a deal popped up for a like new copy at $33, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge for the extra expansions, the lack of bugs, the improved graphics, and the ability to concoct my own music playlist for scrambling around the wasteland.
