11 months ago I sold all of my consoles because I couldn't pay my rent after losing my job. Today, I've joined the ranks of those of you who aren't pathetic slackers who lose their jobs and purchased an Xbox 360!

The new xbox one inspired model is sweeeeet! I slapped an expensive 320 gig hard drive in that baby and downloaded all of my old games and saves back onto it. Hey, atleast I got a free copy of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Ms. Splosion Man, and a few Pinball FX tables with the hard drive haha.

I picked up a copy of Bioshock Infinite and Mass Effect 3 to get started on. Bioshock is epic so far.

I'm really happy to be back!! Let's talk about how to best hold onto consoles and not sell them due to the rent being due or any other topic.

Welcome back, must've felt great after long months of no gaming!

However, I must say.. Why didn't you get yourself a budget PC? You could buy games really cheap as well as playing several free games, would've helped your budget instead of spending on 360 games.

Edit: Oh I see that you downloaded your already-owned games on it. That's great then, you got games ready to play! Enjoy.

I'd say this is the perfect time to pick up a current-gen console. You've got eight years of excellent games to work through and you should be able to pick most of them up at used prices. Welcome back, duder!

You're back?! Well fuck.

I kid.

Welcome back to the world of video games where you waste money on interactive poop and spend way to much on power bills! I personally think you should've grabbed a PS3 because The Last of Us, like c'mon. What's wrong with you?! But eh. Have fun!

Why didn't you get yourself a budget PC?

Because
