What was the mind blown away part?

For PS3, Journey. Do it in one sitting, though.

After researching some games available, so much has come out compared to when I last checked.

I have to say, it has been one year since I have seriously looked into shopping for Video games. Mostly due to the change in my life style and the costs of dealing with certain goods which offset buying video games. Things like picking up Kumdo, which demand a lot of my time for practice. I have to prepare for two tournaments, one in the Fall semester and one in the spring semester. In addition, I have had to focus a lot more of my time into school. In addition, I have been spending a good deal of time at work (which has been an improvement from my previous places of employment.) Although the true heart tackler have been video games themselves. My expectations of video games has gone done, which includes things from Nintendo (Remember when I made the Wii Defense Force?) Wii U doesn't like a very good system. Nintendo really hasn't been pushing out games as well as they should for all the time they put into it. Skyward Sword is a good game, but I realized the things that are important to me in a game is the freedom to explore and expand which older games did far better for me. Also, the feeling that video game companies tend to make me feel more like a cash cow then a respectable customer.

Anyways, now I am starting to get back into shopping for Video games. I am even getting my PS3 repaired which hasn't been able to read discs for nearly 2 years now. That being said, I have a lot of catching up to do with the PS3 as well. Some which include some Wii games I Missed. Now is a fairly good time to pick them up with used game prices going down. But a lot can change in one year. I know there were a lot of discussions by publishers on how to undermine used game sales and business strategies that are doomed to fail anyways.

My question is, what should I watch out for? The most recent games I have bought is Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and Donkey Kong Country Returns and that was about a month ago. Besides that, I haven't bought anything since last summer.

I am probably going to buy a nano. My question is really whether Gamestop is reliable or not for buying used ipods?

So I was thinking about getting an ipod from gamestop. I was just looking for something to listen to audio on but have a screen for making selections. Looking to spend about $50 on a used one. Does anyone think there is any reason to believe they are untrustworthy in this regard?

wtf seriously? is this an issue? I've done that many times when I was supposed to write a shorty summary/essay thing and would have had to transcribe the session. whatever the case, it's pretty ridiculous to assume that the cops are gonna show up and arrest(!) him for something so trivial. just tell him to calm down and don't freak out over nothing ...

That is what happens when you live in china.

You live in China? OR your roommate came from China?

My roommate is from china.

China's copyright laws are almost nigh on useless and while they were changed in the 1990s, the US still has China on a copyright breach watchlist. Read this. Why are your threads so weird? This one is almost racist but most certainly stupid.

There isn't anything racist about this thread.

As to why my threads are weird, it probably has to do with the virtue and character of the thread creator, wouldn't it?

My room mate is freaking out right now because he made a recording of one of his classes. His teacher was hollering at somebody for making some audio recordings of the lecture how the recording is illegal. We are in a one party consent state. We wanted to know the legal boundaries of the situation. He is also freaking out because he is the afraid the cops are going to come to our room and arrest (even though I told him it probably won't happen). Any law students or lawyers can give us some information on the issue.

Put me on that.  being a scambassador was the only reason I bought one.  Bought mine at wal-mart and went into the e-shop an hour later.

Anyways, I am transferring to a new college where I will be dorming.  Is there anything I should know about dorming and what are some things I should buy?
