Well hopefully this isn't replacing the holiday sale all, but we'll see.

One thing I like about this whole trading cards metagame is it gets me to at least download and fire up the games in my library I never got around to. I had like three indie games running the background for cards, then I got to Gunpoint. I didn't get very far but I kept the music running the background the rest of the night.

Well after trying for most of the day I was able to snag Renegade Ops for 1500 gems (all that I had basically). It seemed like it was hovering around 1300 all day but I kept getting sniped, so I had to up my bid.

I assumed that the prices would steadily decline after the first day as people burned through their gems, but that doesn't seem to be happening yet. I guess there are a lot of people coming in from the sidelines still.

Depends on how deep the Steam crazies go. I have about 1000 gems. I figure about halfway through the auction it might settle down and maybe I'll have a chance at a small game. If not, I can turn those gems into a card pack and move on to the sale.

You guys with Dreamcasts hooked up do you use the VGA box and how does that hook up to modern TVs?

I really enjoyed Sacred Stones on my 3ds, but apparently it only came out for the Ambassador program.

I'm getting an Atari Flashback for Christmas, and I can't wait to see what my kids think of it. They are 5 and 7 and are already pretty proficient at Lego and Skylanders on the 360.

Labyrinth zone, where they introduced the water. That was it for me. Honestly the drop off in fun after the first zone, Green Hill Zone, was pretty steep.

Too bad about Mario Galaxy, easily in the top 5 games of last generation. Of course I don't have a PS3, so I have even bigger holes in my list.

Most disappointing doesn't mean worst. Destiny is in my top 10 games this year. I like it and play it a lot. But it is definitely my most disappointing game this year by far. There was a vast gap between what I was expecting and what it turned out to be.

I use DoggCatcher and like it, but I don't listen to the premium podcasts so I don't know how that'd work.
