I could be doing better, so while I don't really consider myself successful, I'm still really content. To me, a successful person is someone that can rely on themselves to make a living, or to support a family, while for me, I have a job, and it pays well, but it's nowhere near enough to live on my own; I'd probably have to get a second job, and/or a girlfriend with a job for that. Success is a personal thing though really. I'm pretty happy, so that's all that really matters to me right now.

@humanity: Thanks. And I bet I'll probably go to sleep at some point today too, most likely without finding the damn thing. I just won't sleep today. Well, actually, Titanfall is out and I want to go get a few other things as well today, so sleeping is out of the question anyways. It'll pop up at some point.
Where the heck could it be? Now I feel like I have spiders crawling all over me. I was playing Assassin's Creed 4 about 30 minutes ago now, perhaps 15. Anyways, I was playing it, and then all of a sudden, just below in my peripheral vision, in the dark of the room where the only light was the light from the TV hitting whatever, something crawling on the Kinect sensor, moving the the left to right. I get up, turn the light on, quickly look at the spider, and then leave the room to get a paper towel to come back and squish it, but I come back, and it's freakin' gone, nowhere to be found...
I'm kind of afraid to lift the Kinect, since it may jump on me :P. I acknowledge the spider's probably more afraid of me... Giving it reason to attack me! No, I'll be realistic about it, but goodness I don't like spiders. I honestly sometimes go through stages after seeing a spider, first I get a shock, try to kill, it, and then think about how it feels :P. It partially makes me not want to kill it, but heck, if I see it and get the opportunity to, I'm going to. I don't want that thing around me. I'm sitting only about a foot and half away from where it was, so it's around me somewhere. GAH!
Pointless thread huh? I don't care. I'm not afraid of a lot of things, but spiders and open water (or the thought of swimming in it) scares me. Spiders are more of a shock thing, where I gasp when I see one that's a big enough size, and then my hair starts to tingle, but I am at times not afraid to go after it, though if I can, I'll have someone else either kill it, or help me try and kill it, ha ha. At least I don't scream at the top of my lungs, like one of my old 'friends' did. That was a bit excessive. Oh man, I thought I just got bit...
I don't know if I can choose. For me, I played Dead Rising 3 probably the most out of all of them, though Assassin's Creed 4 on PS4 pretty close. Despite having seven or more games on PS4 while only a few on Xbox One. I play them about equally really. I think pretty soon here though the PS4. I mean, Titanfall, I'll probably play that for a little while, but I'm going to get Ground Zeroes on PS4 and Second Son. I don't believe it'll always be the case, or at least I hope it doesn't, but for right now, the PS4 has the better looking cross-console titles for the most part (Strider I hear is better on the One), so I'm getting the PS4 versions.
It would have been nice to have other options on the poll, because I'd like to see the percentage, but I'm not going to vote. Oh, I didn't read you post. As for the controller, the Dualshock 4 to me feels slightly better. My brother is pretty brutal on controls sometimes, like on Killer Instinct, he would almost button mash, and for what I will call a test of durability, the Xbox One's controller doesn't stand a chance, the left stick is already kind of wobbly on one controller, while the PS4's controller is just fine.
I also don't like the left or right bumper quite as much; they're too thick and sometimes it's hard to tell if you're fully pushing them down. Initially, though not so much now, I didn't really know how I felt about the rumble since it just felt weird, but now I don't even think about it, as usual. All that being said, I like them almost about as equally. I like how the Xbox One practically still has select, while the options button on PS4 doesn't function that way. As for which versions of a game I'll get, it'll really depend on what it looks better on in the end, and how well it runs, but I also consider what I associate the game with, which will be a factor for games already in a known series.
For instance, if they put out the trilogy of Mass Effect, and the trilogy of Dead Space on next-gen, and they were both equal on each console, I'd get Mass Effect on the One, while I'd get Dead Space on the PS4. I would have settled for it being the same on Xbox One and PS4, but I'm pretty happy the PS4 version of Ground Zeroes is supposed to look a bit better because I associate MGS with PlayStation, while to me it would have been unfortunate if the One version looked better.
Eh, alright. Thanks everyone. I kind of knew that it wouldn't be possible to buy a pre built gaming PC that was very good. My problem is that I don't want to spend a lot of money on something that could possibly break sooner than expected, like last time. I always try to keep my electronics in really good shape, but the PC last time just failed.
I apologize for not answering your question but your best bet is to buy a PS4 or an XB1 with that money. For $500 a PS4 and an XB1 will perform better than that same PC will for games. If you really want to buy a PC though I suggest saving that $500 until you get to at least $800. You can build a pretty good machine at that price but since you're averse to that you can still buy a decent one from some of the boutique dealers. Sorry if this is no help.
I already have an Xbox One and PS4.
So, this may be a stupid question, but, are there any relatively good gaming PC's I can buy that has a top price of $500? My brother bought a PC in 09, and we played games on it for a while, but in 2011 it stopped working. I think we just used the graphics options improperly or something. So I don't play PC games as I would hope to. My problem with it is that I don't know how to build my own PC, and even if I learned (which I don't think I will, at least not soon), then comes to cost of things.
I just wish to go the more convenient route and buy an already built one, but I would hope there's one that's at least 500 dollars, and perhaps less that plays games great, like Bioshock Infinite (for example) at max settings with a good frame rate. I have a monitor that's only 1600 x 900, and for me, that's perfectly fine, so I don't need to look into monitors with greater resolutions that'll make it worse on the games frame rate. Sorry if this kind of question has been asked, and yes, like I said it's probably dumb, but I still felt like asking.
Thanks in advance. Please don't suggest making one, as I know some will probably feel like saying. It's a valid and good advice, but not one I want to take right now since I don't care to learn how to build one myself at the moment. And yes, I used the word 'convenient' and what's actually more convenient is arguable. I mean, I could go up, but I don't at all want to reach 1000 dollars. Hopefully this is seen. Giant Bomb took down the forums at the bottom of the home page for some reason a while back.
Just curious what this thread is about?
I'd assume PS Plus trial memberships, which don't stack, as the OP probably figured out. Pretty sure no other trials work on your account once you've used one, no matter how many days that was. Or at least I'd assume so, otherwise I could see it being exploited pretty easily.
So, wait. If I buy a game, redeem my trial, and in another 14 days buy another game and attempt to redeem the trial associated with the 2nd game, I won't get it?
No, I think you can. You just can't stack it directly after putting one on, but I believe you can add another trial after the previous trial is done. The reason I said never mind was because my brother tried it and it wouldn't let him; even though it doesn't answer part of my question, it answers what needed to be answered. I have a feeling another code will work after this trials over; it wouldn't make much sense if it didn't really, but if we can't, then that answers the other part of what I'm curious about.
