This is another one of my pick-up threads, along with other random stuff (mostly going to discuss my weekend and future plans).
Yes, I know thatís shocking to hear, Mana Knight buying a 360 game. Well, I had a rain check at Target for the longest time where I could get Halo 3 for $30 new. My Target finally got in a new stock (last one sold out quickly), so I decided to pick it up. Right now Iím debating whether Iíll keep it or return it, but I mostly picked it up because my rain-check expired and I always wanted Halo 3. I played my best friendís copy a few times liking what I played, so I wanted to pick it up (but was normally $60 new and still kind of expensive used). I also wanted an FPS on my 360 with online multiplayer (Please donít recommend Call of Duty 4 because I already owned it and played it), so I felt it was the perfect buy. I really liked the first Halo (although I wasnít into it as much as some). Didnít really get into the 2nd, but couldnít play online since I just couldnít update the game for some reason (so I traded it in). I also wanted a new 360 game since the last game I bought was Tales of Vesperia. Iíll decide soon whether Iíll keep or not, but Iíll probably keep. The only reason Iím not sure about keeping is because Iíll be buying MANY new games in Q1 2009.
As for my weekend, I didnít really get out much. I did pick up Halo 3 at Target on Friday. Last week on Wednesday, I spotted Valkyria Chronicles for $30 new at my Wal-Mart (it was YMMV). Although I already owned it, I considered picking it up for a CAG and selling it to one of them (for what I paid + shipping cost), but I have a feeling they sold out.
Thatís all I have to say now. I got another blog in the planning stages right now and should be posted in the not so distant future.
