So that means I saved 150.00 right? RIGHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?  saywhat

Not quite - I think you saved ~ $118 (you still had to pay tax on the $399, right?). Still, that's a great deal.

I think you'll be happy with the 360 and the Wii doesn't come out for another month and a half - plenty of time to scrounge up an extra $250.  icon_wink

Nope! No tax! Huzzah!

Well , I'm seriously considering buying this too.  Even if it's non-Costco.

How did you wrangle it to get both games free, ATB?  Even if it's going to be fixed I want to give it a shot.

Just put em both in the cart. Discount shows at checkout.  Will you be my first online gaming buddy!?!?!?!  nod

Getting both games free is likely a glitch.  Amazon will probably disallow it and you'll just get GoW, which is still a great deal.

Yeah. most likely.

Actually it now looks like you can get both games for free with the console. Total price 399.99.

I just pulled the trigger.

I try not to do general advice threads, but here we are and what the heck.

Okay, the 399.00 shipped 360 premium with free Gears of War has me like this:  saywhat  and I'm ready to pull the trigger on it as that's about 100.00 in savings.

however, if I buy the 360, I won't be able to afford the Wii.

I want the Wii very badly as if you've been reading here you've seen and I'm anticipating it greatly.  But, admittedly, there are several games upcoming (next 6+ months starting with GoW) that I'd very much like to play on the 360.  I figured I'd get one eventually, but not this soon.

However, the deal is making me  saywhat. Wait did I say that?

So all things being equal- I will like both consoles and the games available for each...., what should I do?

Oh, what should I do?

There have been a lot of 360 deals lately. I wonder if this is a sign of an impending price drop.

Microsoft already officially said "No price drop".   However that is their "Official" line, I have been seeing instant rebates, package deals, free game deals popping up.  Costco started with $20 off instantly, then moved to $50 off instantly as an example.

So unofficial price drop yes.. Microsoft acknowledged - no.

So is that 50.00 off of their 499.00 bundle?
14452  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How Many Games Have You Finished This Year? on: October 03, 2006, 03:04:13 PM
I know there's a horribly neglected sticky thread about this (which I and a few other faithfully keep updated), but as we enter deeper into the 10th month of the year, I'm curious as to how productive everyone's year has been from a finishing a game perspective.

I guess the criteria is as follows:

You played the game all the way through to the end or you've played a never ending game (brain training, sports titles,WoW) enough that you are 'finished' with it having gotten good value for your $ on it.

I've actually completed 11 full games with another 4 that I would say fall into the second category.

Well technically this would be a 60.00 price drop....as I believe GoW is 60.00

But man if I launch all my ducats at this, I won't be able to buy a Wii for some time...

I think most people are going to say no because WW has two endings and unless you bust your butt you won't get the one that TTT starts with anyway.

I would say yes, but that's because I love the trilogy and prefer to play games in order seeing the whole story. 

If you think it will just be an exercise in frustration, then skip it as TTT is a better game.

You know, the Arizona Cardinals say this every single year. And we all know how crappy of a team they are.  icon_biggrin

I dont think anyone is saying that about the Cardinals this year...  Also, the Bears dont need to be for real, they get to play Green Bay and Detroit twice each.  4 wins right there.

I bet they lose one to green bay.

Bills are  this |--| close to being 4-0.  But they stink so, you're possibly right.  Baltimore is so solid, but I'd have to say the Bears are playing the best right now.  Cincy would have been arguable if they hadn't gotten smacked around. Same with Jax.

Quote from: ATB on October 02, 2006, 12:23:03 PM

I typically allow myself 2 sodas per week, but there are times that a meal- at least in my mind- requires one.

Mexican food (specifically Taco Bell), Pizza...hamburgers and hotdogs with chips.

As The Dew is my preferred soda, if I stand firm this month, I can effectively eliminate 1530 calories from my diet (4.5 weeks x2 MT Dew (170 cals per) = 1530.
Are your two sodas/week always cans of soda? I'm only curious because you mention eating at Taco Bell.  A single cup of soda at the self-serve fountain could easily be 24 ounces (2 cans) or even more if you ever get refills.

Oh I know it!

I have been to TB possibly 4 times this year so it's not a frequent occurence.  But yes, it throws off the curve something fierce on those weeks.

Probably a little less than a twelve pack plus the occassional soda when we go out to eat (I normally have unsweetened tea at restaurants).  No calories though- I prefer diet sodas.

I'm in the same boat.  During the week, 24 oz cup in the morning, 20 oz cup in the afternoon, brew a pot after dinner (though it's rare that I polish off the entire pot.  2/3 is probably pretty typical). 

On weekends, full pot in the morning and usuallly a full pot at night.

I saw a 15 minute narrated trailer on Bioshock and the guy's all look at our revolutionary AI. They show a robot walking around trying to find a little girl.  Then the little girl comes out and you can 'scare' her.  The robot warns you, blah blah.

How is this revolutionary in any regard and why is Bioshock getting so much 'OMG it's amazing!?' coverage.

Additionally, it talks about how the environments are different. Looks like a bunch of corridors to me.

Splain?

This is PC and 360 so I'm putting the thread here...

Between parties, yardwork, hanging with the fams and marathon training, this was a very scant weekend of gaming for me:

1 hr of Battles of Prince of Persia

20 minutes of Killer 7

40 minutes of Okami- all of which was lost because there wasn't a save point when I needed one (Makeover home edition was coming on for teh w1fe).

Total game time 2 hrs.  Total productive game time: 1 hr 20 mins.
