To above poster: Please remove that pic of the 3DS for your own safety. That Bank of America paper behind the box probably has some info on it that you don't want the internet to see.

EDIT: Just noticed that it's just a NCAA bracket lol. Still, better safe than sorry.

You lucky bastard. Mine never has any CEs left over. We have one Bioshock 2 at 29.99, but I kind of question if that one is even worth it :/

New Vegas and FO3 I would totally jump on, though.

So here is my story:

I was looking around Amazon the other night and stumbled upon this ---->

Spoiler


So I didn't hesitate and bought it. It came via UPS today, after only two days (which was a pleasant surprised since the expected delivery date was 4/5-4/8).

I open it up, and boy oh boy was I shocked. The console itself looked pristine. The cables and controller were still sealed. It seemed like the console was only tested to see if it worked (which after an hour of testing, I have concluded that, yes indeed it does).

The best part of this "buy" was that even though the product description mentions what is included in the box, is that they also threw in a sealed copy of Uncharted 1 and a brand new PS3 Blu-Ray remote. The biggest kicker of all is that I could tell they tested the system before selling it because, when I turned on the system, out of the PS3 popped a copy of Modern Warfare 2.

Is there a wall of fame around here? I think this deserves to be on it!!!

Everything that was in the box (the smudge on the PS3 is from my crappy cellphone camera) ---->

They came from my childhood :D Pretty much the only games 10+ years old that I kept the boxes to. I guess I should have specified that that image wasn't actually a pick-up but just stuff I had laying around, hah.

When you post, there is a picture icon that looks like a landscape with a sun. Click that and copy the link where you uploaded your image to. If you haven't done this use imgur to upload with.

Pick-ups from the end of last month and the beginning of this one :)

Let's start with the easy stuff:

After searching for quite a bit (and thanks to a good friend), I finally found this beauty:

Posted Image

I dont know what it is about white systems that just make them look so classy.

Posted Image

(Accidently took a picture of Tomb Raider Trilogy twice)


Wondercon 2011

Posted Image

One of the lead artist for the Street Fighter/Tatsunoko series was at the Capcom area drawing any character pictures for a fee. I had him draw me one of Amaterasu <3

Posted Image

The moment I saw this I knew I knew that I absolutely had to own it. The artist had so many beautiful art pieces from a ton of other sci-fi movies and shows, but this one just really stuck out. The artist was nice enough to sign if for me too :D These pictures really don't do the artwork much justice, but it's really something in person, it even has this shimmery look.

Here's a somewhat clearer picture:
Spoiler


While I was waiting for my Firefly piece, my boyfriend and a friend went out and picked these up for me. My jaw dropped when I saw the Jean Grey Premier series. For those that don't already know, Jean Grey/Phoenix is one of my absolute favorite superheroes.

Posted Image

Here's a close up of Jean out of the box:
Spoiler


And finally, my current obsession!

Posted Image

I finally jumped on the bandwagon, and at this rate, I don't see myself ever jumping off. This thing is a beast, and I literally carry it with me everywhere. The smartcover was a genius plan, and not only does it fold up and act as a mount if you want it to, it also cleans the screen everytime you cover the Ipad2. AND it automatically turns the system on and off :D
