Despite what would be questionable activities and not really the bible as much as I should:

I'm proud to say, I'm a Christian and I love God woohoo!

Hello all, my name is Steve I've been a fan of the site almost since its inception. I was a big fan of Jeff Gertsmann and sad to hear he left gamespot. Then I looked him up sometime in 2008 and magically I found Giantbomb and haven't looked back since.

I'm very opinionated about aspect of the video game industry but I never found a true site where I can find myself posting in the comments section or voicing my opinion, I relegate myself to lurking, browsing and laughing at funny comments. I'm trying to take an active step in the video game community because it's pretty much my passion and I love video games.

Damn it's hard being a gamer on budget, if they're going against used games so strongly. Many times I find myself buying used games because, let's face it, games are freakin' expensive (and the used games I buy range from $10-$40). Or many times it's a game I'm curious to play but did not feel it was worth 60 bones. Locking people from playing used to games is ridiculous and feels like "Big Brother". Why I can't I lend my friend a copy of game I already finished, who are they to stop us.

And it's also a headache for those who rent games, I just started Gamefly around November and the first game I rented was Battlefield 3. Single-Player was meh..but when I tried to play multiplayer I had to put in access code and I totally forgot about that whole online gaming pass. Even though paying $10 dollars wasn't too bad, I wasn't expecting to spend money. Now when I'm choosing games to rent, I have to mindful that they do not require any online pass (like Arkham City).

I wish there was some type of agreement game companies can make with Gamestop (and the like) where they can make some money off these used sales as well.

"And also like most other four-player arcade games that have come to consoles as downloads, this port will undoubtedly seem like a really awesome idea until you and your friends beat it in less than an hour, and then immediately forget about it like those digital copies ofX-Men Arcade,Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game, andFinal Fightyou still have on your hard drive, yet haven't touched since the week you bought them."

When I was done reading that passage, I felt like Alex may have been a psychic...
