EDIT: Hey I forgot to add that Steam keeps bothering me to give away my extra copies of Half-Life 2 and HL2: Episode 1. So if you need/want them PM your steam ID. Thanks
Hey all, I decided to start a blog series called Purchases. This is just something I will do whenever I get something new like a game, movie, or some sort of music. Over the past 3-4 days I have gotten a few games and a few T.V. shows.
Madden NFL 09 Collectors Edition.-360
-Amazon $89.99.-Some of you may be in shock that I got this because I may not look the type for sports games. However, the first game that was ever really mine was Madden 03 for the GC. I played that game to death and I have been craving some good old football. I don't know a lot of the stats or plays or players, but I do know enough. Since people have said this game has been toned down a little bit, I knew this was a good purchase for me. So far I am liking the game, except my defense fails at watching my flanks. I think its because if that IQ test.
Condemned: Criminal Origins-360
Gamestop:$15I played and beat Condemned 2 and I loved every second of it. My friend told me that I had to play this game and its alot of fun. So I saw it for 15 bucks and said, why not.
Lost Planet Collectors Edition-360
Gamestop: $18I played this game when it first came out and liked it a lot. I saw it for 18 bucks and it was the Collectors edition, metal case and all so I bought it.
Gamestop: $15Played and beat the game on the Pc when it first came out. Amazing game. I rented it for the 360 and hated the controls and the graphics were toned down. However, I wanted to play it again and it was 15 bucks. If your wondering why I didn't just install the PC version its because i didn't want to wait for 5 discs to install and for some reasons my pc crashes the game even with 3 gigs of RAM and a 8800GT.
Hitman: Blood Money-360
Gamestop: $20I LOVE the Hitman series. I played everyone ( except the first ) and my favorite is contracts. I saw The Weskers video and I need to buy this game so I could play it again.
Hitman Trilogy Pack-Ps2
Best Buy-$30Same as above. Love the games, needed to own them so I got the pack. It comes with Hitman:2, Contracts, and Blood Money.
Gamestop: $60Yea the big one where everyone keeps saying it sucks or it rocks. The answer is simple: If you like the fucking demo then you will like this game, if you didn't like the demo you will not like this game. So far I really enjoy this game. Some reviews were very bad and they had no idea what they were talking about. I had faith in Van Ord, but he failed on this one. Giant Bombs is the best review for it. Everywhere else just trashes it. I think because it was in development for 10 years they had high hopes for it. All I have to say to that is watch Jeff's review. Or actually PLAY THE GAME YOURSELF. That is all I want to say about this game.
XBLA: 800 pointsPlayed the demo and enjoyed it. I decided to buy it and its pretty fun. There are only 5 levels ( note: each level is long ) and only 2 modes. It is easier then Geo wars, but a lot more tactical. Fun game.
Fable 2: Pub Games-360
Gamestop: FreePre-ordered Fable 2 special edition. Got the code free. Do not pay 10 bucks for this game. There are 3 games in it, a really fun card game, a REALLY hard guessing/dice/bridge game, and slots where you never win anything. I have gotten a 5 star gambler rating with 200k by just playing the card game using the glitch because it would take forever to win money without it because the games are cheap as hell. Anyways if you want this, go to Gamestop, pre order Fable 2, get the code, cancel the pre order. Easier said then done.
XIII or 13-Xbox
Gamstop: $4, however 50% off sale so 1.50 with edge card.Heard people say this game was fun and it has Mulders voice from the X files. I also and buying alot of Ps2 and Xbox games for collection/ they are extremely cheap and might as well buy them because i always wanted to own these games. Have not played it yet, but I will.
007 Nightfire- Xbox
Gamstop: $3Its 007. Great game, had to own it. Nuff said.
Fallout 3 Pre Order Bonus
Gamestop: FreeI pre ordered this game a while ago, but never got the bonus. it came with the soundtrack and a mini poster of that main bad guy.
I always loved the X files. I only saw a handful though because I only found out about it when the show was off the air and they only played re runs at 1-3 am on TNT. Sadly soon after I started watching them, all the other new shows got played like Cold Case, Law and Order, and Without a Trace. Now these shows are good shows, however X files is better so fuck them for doing that. Anyways saw X files: I want To Believe and it was a GREAT movie. It was really mellow compared to the series, but the dialogue was amazing between Mulder and Scully. So this re sparked my interest and I went out and bought Seasons 1 and 2 at beast buy for 40 bucks each.
Xfiles-Seasons 3-9: DVD
Amazon.com: Varying pricesPretty much each set was either 27 dollars or 35 dollars so it was way cheaper then getting them at Best Buy. The bill was $214.85 ( that's with shipping and handling ) I only have 3 episodes left in the second season.
So thats all I have gotten this week including the 360 Elite. I will do a count of all the games, movies, and cds i have soon.
See you guys later!
Oh and I should put this here because people are going to say " Oh my god your rich " or " your spoiled "
I have this to say: I work had for these games, doing chores and getting great grades. Also I pay for some this stuff on my own. The 360 Elite I payed for half of it. So if your gonna say something like that, then fuck off.
Oh and Metallica's new single The Day That Never Comes just came out. Fucking great. Cannot wait for Sept. 12
