Why, hello there. Didn't see you come in. Oh, you want to know about what I bought that are videogames? Cool, I want to tell you about them!
My friend bought Bulletstorm at launch day and loves it. I didn't really like the demo because I thought it got dull fast and I dislike score-based games. Then again I love the attitude of this game, with the dicktits and the fucked up shit that goes on in that game, and I am interested in doing Co-op with said person. In addition to this I am nearing 100% completion on Dragon Age Ultimate Edition (just three achievements away from being done now - yo Harvester on Hard is fucking impossible) and I just discovered that I have the week off from college... So this is the perfect time to buy some games. Having woken up at 8 pm, I rushed to the stores, but was dismayed to find that the ones that sold videogames were all closed. So I went online to the only place I could think of that lets me order games without a credit card, Komplett.no (a Norwegian site - 99% of you can just ignore this).
The thing about ordering online through the mail is that you have to pay for the delivery or whatnot, so it's a good idea to buy in bulk. So I looked around their 360 section and found Mirror's Edge for dirt cheap (all the prices above are Norwegian Kroner - if we include the sales tax and whatnot you can just divide by ten to get the US Dollar equivalent). Then I thought "Hey wait a minute I also have a PC that can play games", so I went to the PC section and OH MY GOD THESE GAMES ARE CHEAPER THAN COKE ZERO. Of course, I value my time, so I only bought two of the dirt cheap PC games: James Bond: Quantom of Solace (IT'S SO CHEAP and also Daniel Craig) and Dreamfall Limited Edition, which is made by Funcom, one of the few Norwegian game developers. Since I am going to be studying game design with a teacher that worked with Funcom (I believe he was among the people who pitched The Secret World), it makes sense to play at least one game from them... and it's 39 fucking kroners.
Anyway, this has been my first haul blog post. I'll probably post more in the future, Dragon Age II is coming out, and I am "deffo" getting that. Dirt 3 should be out soon too - I haven't been this excited about a game since Mass Effect 2!
