You'd think so, but I make a point of checking into that every year so I know when to hassle you to buy the latest one. As of yet, no such luck. Fingers crossed for the one coming out next month!

I just want to chime in a bit on the COD debate. IMO COD4 has better guns, way better campaign if that matters to you. COD WaW however has much better level design in my opinion. Lots more debris which si good if you're a bolt action only guy like myself.

Also the 2 games are practically the same. EA should be ashamed for charging full price for what's essentailly a WW2 mod where helicopters = dogs, airstrike = artillery. Dicks.

Doubtful. Not until Cag gets over his fear of human interaction, at least.

On another note, there's been a lot of clearance deals on guitars as of late. Should I find one for $5 or less, I'll strongly consider getting into Guitar Hero: Metallica.

To be fair, unless you come over to my house, there's no way we'll be playing BOS together either. Better start mapping out your itinerary.

I'm holding you to that!

Just wanted to point out that Brutal Legend is the real deal. I had no doubt it'd be a solid game, but I wasn't onboard the hype train until I played the demo. Now, Rocktober can't come quickly enough!

Furthermore, Tekken 6:
  • Scenario Campaign Online Co-op: Jump into intense two player online co-op campaigns against AI controlled enemies and experience the dramatic large-scale action with friends around the globe.
By the end of the month, my life will be complete.

Just scored $120 worth of Microsoft Points for a cool $60. If there's anything on XBLM that catches both of our eyes, that's now an option as well.

I've been considering Trials HD as well, but I question how much use I'll get out of it. It's a distinct possibility, at any rate. I also want Peggle, but damned if I'm gonna cough up $10 for that.

As for Street Brawl...

'Nuff said, I think.

At $199 and $0.50/game, perhaps it's time to cross over to the dark side.

I don't know where you get the $0.50/game from. Even $199 is too much. I could only justify buying a current generation console if it was $99 or less and could play pirated games without requiring me to get crap soldered to its mainboard in some dark alley in chinatown (I don't know if there's a chinatown in Washington but whatever). If by some miracle this happened, I would have to get a PS3 because I still haven't played MGS4

Anyone who knows computers and is literate can mod a 360 solder-free in an afternoon, $0.50/game = $0.50/disc, and you could surely score a refurb for $99. Sure beats buying a new $300 video card every time a new game is released and waiting several months/years for buggy, DRM'd ports that you'll be playing alone while a single tear streams down your face. Of course, you could always hold out for the fabled $99 PS3, but by then, MGS5 will be out on the PS4, and the cycle will continue.

Prison Break Screenshots:



Two thoughts spring to mind:
  1. Why?
  2. AWESOME.
On another note, I see you picked up Trials HD, tarz. Test the online modes at some point and post your thoughts. If they're fun, I'll go ahead and purchase it myself.
