Dang. I was hoping for freebies. Oh well.

Anyone have a chance to try this out? I'm getting the game from GameFly soon, and I wanted to know if transferring saves from system to system would give me some trophies (I beat Peace Walker when it came out).

Meant the topic title to be "E3 2009 Theme." Not sure what happened.

Hey, hopefully this isn't Youtube, spam, but I managed to upload a spliced-together version of the E3 '09 theme. Not sure if this has been done already, but in case it hasn't, here it is. Feedback is appreciated.

Edit: Here's the MP3: http://kiwi6.com/file/up3ns07a56

Bombcast length doesn't really matter to me, since I listen to podcasts constantly. But a few Quick Looks could do with some cutting down.

I like to listen to podcasts while gaming quite a bit, so I deal with this issue a lot. I mostly buy cheap games I've played before on Steam (I already know what's going to happen, so I don't have to worry about story). Still, it's difficult to say what an acceptable amount of missing story is. The only thing I could really give ya is a list of everything I've played with podcasts and provide a few reasons why. Firing up Steam...

-Chime (music a lot of the experience, but after a while the music gets old.)

-Just Cause 2 (story in this was so stupid early on I decided I'd enjoy the game much more without sound anyway.)

-Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit (Story is really nonexistent, and podcasts are way better than EA trax).

BioShock 2 (second playthrough...)

Borderlands (again, playthrough 2, but I don't think you're missing much if you have subtitles on)

Burnout: Paradise (See NFS)

DiRt 2

Jamestown (story's nice, but not necessary)

Resident Evil 5 (second playthrough, but you're not really missing much)

Super Meat Boy (again, not missing much)

Torchlight (See above)

Trine (See above)

Universe Sandbox (game literally has no sound)

It's a partial list, as I've omitted things that would probably fall under the BioShock 2/RE5 category, but that's what I've got. Hope you enjoy!

Ninety-Nine Nights. Assassin's Creed. Call of Duty 2. BC Rearmed 2. Shadows of the Damned. Resident Evil 4. All of these took longer than they should have.

I buy games new and flip 'em while also using GameFly. Cuts the prices of games in half, usually, and I usually use the money I get from trade-ins for new games. I also do buy used games, when they're under $20. I don't feel bad about it because I can't fall in line with thinking that you're supposed to spend $60 on something you'll play once, never touch again, and not get anything back. At $30, that sounds much more reasonable.

Neither of my accounts (PSN Xbox) are updating. I'm wondering; do members who've set their twitter to update with achievements have priority over those that don't? I've seen that people who do have their achievements update, but that could just be a coincidence.

@Jeff: Awesome! Incidentally, how did you guys get around the whole issue with Sony that prevented you guys from doing this last time around. Just curious.
