Thought I had found a rhythm with more frequent blog posts, but we can see how long that lasted. *shrug*
- Had a yard sale yesterday, with my sister and mom's stuff thrown in (ie: thing was MASSIVE). Made $157 selling mostly DVD's and games, along with the expected junk items that I just didn't need anymore. Was amazing that people were actually willing to buy old Xbox and PS2 sports games from like 2001 (granted, I had them marked at bargain prices of under a dollar, but still). I also sold some newer titles that I knew GS would screw me over on. Prey, for example, I sold for $5, after having paid around $7 for it to begin with. Also sold Sega Superstars Tennis for the Wii (the game had some REAL issues) for a profit - you might remember me purchasing it just a few weeks ago for three bucks and some change on clearance at Target - sold it for $5. While this extra $157 might seem like perfect splurge money for new games, an MP3 player or something, I'm probably going to put most of it in the bank, or spend a small chunk of it at Gen Con in three weeks. Yeah, yeah, I know I have 360 games to catch up on... Blame my frugality.
- My mom bought me the Guitar Hero World Tour band kit a couple of weeks ago. Long story short, she felt sorry for me for having to watch my sister's kids all summer, which I believe I've told you before. Found the band kit for $74.99 at Meijer, down from $189. Hell of a bargain, if you ask me. I suck at the drums, but I've heard that's not uncommon at the beginning. The guitar on Medium is a lot easier than in GHIII or Aerosmith, but the bass is SO easy that I've had to jump straight to Hard to find anything even resembling a challenge (and that's only present in certain songs). Not complaining though, as I really like the set list... except for Tool. Ugh.
- Got some new games - the trio of new Overlord titles (links are my reviews): Overlord II for the PS3, plus the Wii spin-off and Overlord: Minions on the DS. Also got Flower, Sun, and Rain for the DS, which was oddly intriguing, even if fairly long-winded, and downright ugly in appearance. Lastly, I received Little King's Story for the Wii a couple of days ago, and a code for Madballs in... Babo Invasion on the 360 a few days before that. Haven't tried the former yet, but the latter is pretty fun, and challenging.
Thanks for reading.
