I just finished up Aliens vs Predator (as best as I can as an achievement whore). I'll be doing a review on that soon.
Thanks to some great lowball sales here in the trade section, I managed to snag a few games that I can work on.
Can't wait to dive into some Red Dead Redemption finally. I've played about an hour, and I love westerns so I'm hoping I stay more interested in this than GTA4.
Red Faction is also on my short list. Star Ocean might have to wait since I'll be doing 2nd and 3rd playthroughs on it. It isn't going anywhere.
Also picked up that Lara Croft XBLA game. Interesting and lot better than I thought it would be.
Look for reviews (if you care!) soon.
I had to revisit this post because I read this and it just annoys the hell out of me.
Games are licensed, not sold. The understanding that this all started with Auto CAD software, this could be bad depending on how this is interpreted by game companies and how it may affect used game sales and rentals.
I rent from Gamefly and I'm already going to be screwed out of playing a lot of games online. So, potentially they may be forced out of renting some or all games? Obviously this is a worst case scenario. But we've already seen what EA is doing to prevent "losing" money in the used game market and a few companies following suit. You get EA and Activition on that bandwagon and who else would follow suit? Especially if people are still buying up the games and they are making money by the truckloads.
I used to manage an independent video game store. I firmly believe that the games you buy are yours to do what you want with. You bought it. You own it. If its a game like an MMO that you agree to the EULA to play, well, you may own the physical game, but you don't own the virtual property. I don't physically or digitally sign any EULA to play my 360 games. I may agree to MS's terms when playing on Xbox Live, but I don't ever recall signing or agreeing to anything that lets my play Banjo-Kazooie, used or not.
