So I have really never had one of those months where I felt I should do a pickups blog, but March was one of those "holy crap" months. Mind you, I didn't pay full price on any of these except for Final Fantasy 13, many were free, many were trades.
Most of these were free or severely price dropped thanks to one glitch or another at Gamestop.com.
Yea, that's a Kratos mask. Got one from Gamestop at the midnight launch.
I have two daughters, so most of these are for them. Lucky they don't come to CAG because many of these are future birthday presents.
Heh, this needs explaining.
I was at Gamestop cancelling my preorder of Just Cause 2 (thank you Kmart ad!) and some rich snobby woman and her son were in line trading in his Xbox 360, games, and...... a PSP 1000. They wanted cash for it all so I just sniped it off of her for $35 and that was that!
This thing is perfect, and here is why. According to their story, he dropped it and they sent it to Sony to be repaired but the son bought a 3000 while waiting. Whatever. The one Sony sent back was a refurb and not their original. It still has the protective stickers on it Sony put on and an RMA sticker on the back for their inventory. Seriously, flawless system.
Anyway, I've gotten a couple of games for free, most very much discounted or traded for on CAG or friends in RL.
People talk about backlogs. I consider taking a break from CAG just because of March. I really want to play most of this, but don't think I'll get to it until the apocalypse (2012?)
