As tempting as this is I think I'll pass. I'd rather wait and see how these new models are than jump in head first and buy version 1 hardware. I learned my lesson there with the PS2. Damn it I really would like a quieter box with built in wireless though.
" I don't, I feel like I am doing mindless tasks all day long and not really accomplishing anything. I have a BS in MIS and I can't use it cause everyone wants experience, so I am stuck working in an accounting department probably for the rest of my life. "
I ended up in accounting and finance the same way. It's boring as fuck, but it pays the bills. I did grow to like my job though and quite enjoy it now. Also, what's awesome about working with money is that you can learn how to make a lot of it very quickly. I can totally understand hating it though. It's not for everyone.
I think they're just stressed. Tested.com went up a little while ago and now we just got Screened.com. It's a lot of work to launch a new website/database like that and I doubt Dave, Andy, and the rest of the Whiskey crew have the Giant Bomb guys solely working on Giant Bomb stuff. It just wouldn't make sense. So anyways that's my 2 cents.
I made the switch a little over a year ago and haven't regretted it one bit. I still use a PC at the office for work, but all my personal stuff is done on a Mac. The Mac is great for video editing, computer graphics, web design and all that sort of thing. So in that regard I feel they are worth the price. However, if you want to game I really suggest going with a PC because Mac just can't compete with PC when it comes to the gaming department.
Tales of the Abyss introduced me to Bump of Chicken. Mass Effect got me addicted to Faunts. I didn't know about Cage the Elephant before playing Borderlands. I also discovered Poets of the Fall via Max Payne 2 and they've been one of my favorite bands ever since.
Well written. I don't agree with any of it though. However, we are each entitled to our opinions. I know if I did a list like this it would include Green Green, Gunslinger Girl, and Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien, which are three shows that everyone seems to hate.
The rarest game in my collection is probably my Chrono Trigger for the SNES. I have the original box, guide, and ALL the original packaging. Yes I even have the two fold out maps/posters, which are in mint condition. I have a lot of other rare games too, but I don't feel like typing them all down since its a very long list. I will say that I have a complete and near mint copy of the American version of Albert Odyssey Legend of Eldean for the Sega Saturn. I also have a near mint complete copy of Lunar Silver Star Story Complete for the PS1 as well as mint condition copies of Legend of Mana, Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga 1+2, Wild Arms Alter Code F (with bonus Anime DVD), and a factory sealed copy of .Hack//Quarantine just to name a few. Also, in regards to Zone of the Enders yes both of those games are rare. It's very hard to find a complete copy of ZoE 1 with the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo today in good condition. It's hard to find a copy of ZoE 2 in general.
