      Tax Return Spent...

      4 years ago

      So I got my tax returns last week and had every intention of paying off the rest of my car with it.

      Instead I was at Best Buy and bought a PS3. I figured that I have been wanting one for about 3 years and every year I talk myself out of it. The week I bought it Best Buy had a deal where if you buy 2 Greatest Hits you get 1 for free, and it just so happened that Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 just became greatest hits the week before. It was like a sign from God. So, I bought Uncharted 2, God of War 3, and inFamous all for $60. Also, Killzone 3 just came out and Sony released a bundle that included the PS3 and Killzone 3 for $299. So basically I got $90 worth of games for free and spent $60 on games.

      The other thing I bought a few days later is a Kindle 3. I have been wanting one of these for a few years as well but they were always too expensive for me to justify purchasing it. A few months back the price dropped $80 to $140 and I was tempted again. Instead I waited to see if I would get one for Christmas, that didn't happen. The Kindle was a bit of an impulse purchase because I was going to buy a book that cost $20 to buy at Barnes & Noble. Out of curiosity I checked Amazon and saw they had the Kindle version for $9. Basically I figured that if I bought 15 books that were $10 cheaper, the Kindle would have paid for itself.

      Thats what I keep telling myself anyway. And after it all, I still have enough money to make my car payment this month, so at least I did something responsible with it! smiley0.gif

      Apparently I'm the Featured User today! I was under the impression that you had to sign up to do it or be super active or something. Anyway, I guess this would be a good time to thank the guys at RoosterTeeth for such a great web series, community site, as well as a great place for achievement hunters such as myself to get together and talk games. Keep up the good work guys!

      OMG E3

      Good conference MS!

      ODST smiley12.gif is gonna be awesome. With the new "horde" type mode Halo will be back in my disc tray for a long time to come. And a beta key for Halo Reach is included with every copy of ODST. The Fall of Reach is my favorite book of all the Halo books, and this will be awesome to be able to play in the glory days of the Spartan IIs. What would be cool is if Reach had an RPG element to it where you could upgrade your own spartan however you wanted. I will buy this game no matter what, but I would like to see something new that Bungie hasn't tried yet in a Halo game, instead of the same Halo again and again.

      Natal looks very interesting as long as it works and is supported more than the vision camera was. Hopefully its not just a fancy toy, but controlling my NXE minority report style sounds awesome.


      Shadow Complex, Epic and Chair's new XBLA game looks very cool and being the sucker for cool ideas in XBLA games I will probably buy this day one during the summer of Arcade promotion this year. Speaking of new arcade games, the rumored turtles in time remake is coming this summer too and I will be downloading that one for sure day one. Back to Shadow Complex, according to cliff B, the game is like old school Metroid games mixed with Castlevania. I just want to say this right now I LOVE 2D METROID GAMES! and Mr Clifford had my (most likely) 1200 MS points after that sentence.

      hmmm what else. O yea! Splinter Cell Conviction, Left 4 Dead 2, and Crackdown 2 are all coming soon! Super pumped for Crackdown 2.

      Thats all I can think of at the moment... I need to go prepare for the 1v100 beta in an hour. Be back tomorrow with my thoughts on Sony and Nintendo.

      And I managed to forget about last.fm, twitter and Facebook on LIVE. Annnd somehow i forgot to mention how amazing Modern Warfare 2 looks in motion... DO WANT!!

      Summer Is Here

      6 years ago

      My summer officially starts next Monday. Besides working 40+ hours a week, it should be a good one. With Star Trek, Angels and Demons, Terminator, Harry Potter, and Transformers all coming out this summer should be a good one for Blockbuster movies. That doesn't include others like Up and all the summer comedies to look forward to. In the last week i have stocked up on 6 360 games for 30 bucks so I'm going to have a decent summer in gamerscore growth too. Still Kinda pissed that Batman Arkham Asylum got delayed from June until the end of the summer sometime.

      Also I turn 21 this June too!

      I thought that was the case but couldn't confirm it, now the Race can't be altered smiley4.gif
      The level 50 achievement should be easier than I first thought though so the person who reaches that milestone first will still win
