4041  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Looks like I'm buying the Xbox360 Core System... on: November 19, 2005, 07:07:00 AM

You should sue your arithmetic teacher, Ken. They done you wrong.


That's what happens when you read gamepro Tongue  I swear I've read in different magazines they said the premium version has over $270 in accessories.  

Anyways,  wasn't trying to rain on your parade.  I'm feeling the hype myself, but I don't have two things, the money, and a HDTV frown

I thought I was hardcore but apparently I'm a soccer Mom.

I had the premium version preordered but Gamestop is telling me I won't get it on launch day and I might not get it until after Christmas. So for the last 24 hours I've been flirting with the idea of pulling an all-nighter in line at Circuit City. But I really really REALLY don't want to do that. I want to go to bed and sleep like a normal human being.

Today I asked the manager at my Gamestop if there was any way he could hook me up with a system on launch night. He said the best he could do was that he was getting 6 core systems and only 4 were reserved so I could have one of those.

So basically I had to decide how much money a good night's sleep was worth to me. In addition to the core system, I have to buy the hard drive for $100, a wireless controller for $50, and a headset for $20. That's about $70 over the $400 premium system I had already paid in full. And I can always use the corded controller with my PC or for two-player gaming so that part isn't too painful. I decided to go this route so now I can be up and running late Monday night.

I'm just glad I'll have a new Xbox 360 by the weekend of Dec 2-4. The wife and daughter are going out of town so it's a bachelor gamefest nacho junkfood weekend for me.

Right move? Retardo? You make the call.


I would have just waited.  You pretty much just threw away $250 in accessories just to have it on day 1

Why KAMEO? WHY!?!? I LOVED YOU! YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!  YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME WANT TO BUY A 360 NOT TURN AWAY FROM IT!


Quick question, if you are a fan of football games, why would you be glad the only NFL game available got an 8?  Wouldnt you want it to improve to something you would want to play?  I guess the bitterness hasnt quite gone away.


You're correct in a way, however, that POS has been receiving high scores for the past decade.


maybe that should tell you something, and maybe that should finally make you shut up.  Man it's old, give it up.  Both games had their own strengths and weaknesses.

I had the SP and MP demo of FEAR installed on my computer as well as the retail version of the game.  Last night, I went to uninstall the demos and somehow I lost the retail game with it.  I was 5 levels away from finishing it, and I really do not want to restart.  Can someone send a me Interval 07 save game?  Send me a PM or email (in my profile) and we can work something out.

Thanks

4065  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My new Car! Well slightly used... on: October 22, 2005, 08:09:36 AM
but you wouldn't know the difference until you saw the odometer.  Early in October I got back from a business confrence in Dallas TX, and my girlfriend picked me up at the airport.  Since we haven't seen each other in a week,  we thought it would be nice to go out for dinner and see a movie.  We had some time to kill before the movie, so we decided to look at used cars, since I was planning on buying one within the next 6 months.  I really wanted to get a 2006 Toyota Scion, but it was just going to cost more than I wanted to spend, and figured it would be smarter to get a car that's only been out for a year or two.

We went to carmax just to look, and well, after 2 hours, this is what I got.




Blue book was listing this 2004 mazda 6 for around $19,920, and I got it for around $16,800.  Absolutely no pressure from carmax, and it was actually a pleasant experience all around.

It has 25K miles on it (about average) and my miles per gallon is city 22, hwy 29

It's sporty looking, but it has loads of space, unlike my previous car (celica, it was really cramp, especially in the backseat)  

Anyways this is my new toy, and I love it.

Alright, another 3 week break.  This is what ruined lost for me last year.  WAY TOO MANY INTERUPTIONS IN THE SEASON!  It's only the 4th or 5th episode and they already interupting it.  Does ABC have the World Series this year?  I'm trying to figure out why.


They are running a rerun of the first episode of this season from what I can gather.


They already did that on the 2nd week.

It's very hard to die on the normal difficulty.  Felt like a console game at that level.  Graphics were good, don't think they were great, but definetly an improvement over the original.  I think I've reached that point of getting tired of this genre.  Hell, my video gaming time is pretty nonexistent these days.
