At $50 per (knowing not everyone pays $50), that's $1MM - that's not a lot of money when you look at all the talent and tech that they have. Glad they have CBSi to support them.

Last year for thanksgiving day they give a special for premium for $35 bucks with no shirt. So I think they would have been some new member for that.

I bought 3 of those the first time they had them available. I'm still set for a good while.

No. But my brother usually gets me one anyway. He knows what I like so it is always something good. My parents haven't bought me a game-related thing since they got me a DS in 2004. My mom somehow got me a launch one. I didn't think I would get one because they were so hard to find. I was so happy.

37. More than I thought I would have.

Civ V with the expansions is better. Civ V without is worse.

Yup sounds about right. For me this happened in 2009 when I bought 20 games for $100 at my first Steam sale. I didn't even have a proper gaming PC then. After that consoles just seemed overpriced.

This episode was hilarious. Vinny's editing made it so good. Especially the World of Warcraft part.

That kind of stuff is always sleazy.

I had saved up for an Xbox. I bought a U2713HM instead to use as both a monitor and a TV. Now I can get 1440 p's of entertainment instead of 1200 p's.

I will likely be getting a Wii U if I get anything.

If someone told me that video came from an Xbox 360 version, I would have believed them. That's bad.

My upcoming video card upgrade has just been validated.

Yeah the decision I made about my recent monitor purchase (which cost about the same as either one of the new consoles) has also been reinforced. That money was set aside for a new console. Not happening for probably a year if I get one at all.

That's pretty sad. My PC can run stuff with a 3 year old video card at 1440p at a higher sustained framerate than that.

I guess if I get a console it will be the Wii U.
