Anyone bought Avatar stuff today?
I've just been like a kid in a candy store full of drugs in the avatar marketplace. Everything I saw was so cool except for the crappy skater stuff.
The gears cog outfits and bioshock stuff stood out for me as I didn't know they where gonna be in the update.
Anyway with my jaw constantly being dropped by awesomeness I forced myself to buy 2000 points.
I got the obi wan tunic for 320, the halo red beret for 80 and I just had to complete it all off with the lightsabre for 400.
I feel kinda stupid for forking over 800 points for some digital threads, but hey my avatar is now so cool I'm falling in love with my digital self :D
Did anyone else give in to Microsofts overpriced trinkets?
I'd rather spend those points on something that I can actually use; like the Gorrilaz track pack on Rock Band that was released today... that sounds like a much better investment than some "cool" threads.
Personally speaking, if any of my friends saw that I'd paid for that avatar crap, they'd mock the hell outta me for doing so... I have no idea what I would gain from getting them.
No, absolutely no.
And if people want to send the message that you don't want this kind of bullshit, I advise you do exactly the same. These pieces of Avatar clothing take little more than one person a relaxed afternoon to produce, don't pay them ANY money for that, it's insulting.

" Where oh where does the in hand shit show up at? I bought the light saber but don't see it any where WTF! "Way to go. You could have bought a cool game but you decided to spend that money on a virtual barbie accessory. You're just sending the message to these companies that it is ok for them to bend you over and enjoy your backside.
I bought a t-shirt and i'm happy with it.
80 points of a odd number of point that would remain unspent...
And about it being a waste... so gaming is to some extent.
Everybody should be free to spend their money/points however they want, without criticism.
And selling avatar clothes is smart business... as avatars will have increased importance over time.
In virtual parties and avatar games, for example.
The market place is in place, if you don't buy that stuff, eventually you will get it for free by unlocking it within games. Trust me.
Even if that doesn't happen, don't buy it anyway. Give your money to me instead. I'll spend it on something real. Like toilet paper.
I had 100 points left and I was looking at a couple of things. Then I realized most of the free stuff looks good anyway. Then I used the leftover points to buy a song off the Zune marketplace. Then I listened to that song. Then I was glad I didn't pay to spruce up my digital self.
