It can be whatever year you want it to be on the World Wide Web, where you can hide behind a smokescreen and tell someone to "Shut the Fuck Up", right? :applause:

Don't I know it. ;) I can't believe how amazing it is in getting new releases (books, movies, and games--though only for 360, Wii, and PS2), including Record of Agarest War ZERO, Dungeon Siege III, and Child of Eden (the system is more picky with M-rated titles, only stocking those that receive "stellar reviews"). Thanks to this library, I was able to try out Child of Eden, and based on my experiences, I'd definitely buy a copy for myself at $15-$20.

This library even listens to your suggestions for purchasing materials. For instance, I suggested that they buy Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (:360) since I noticed it wasn't in the catalog, and I received an email later saying that not only were they were going to purchase it, they would place a hold on it in my name for me to pick up when it arrived at my local branch! :bouncy:

Oh yeah, you can also place holds on some not-yet-released games, too: I currently have Driver: San Francisco and El Shaddai on hold.

Back on topic, I'm STILL on the waitlist, and it doesn't look like that'll be changing anytime soon. Congrats to those who got in on this deal. :applause:

Wow, you're library rocks. I see all these other libraries that get games, but mine hasn't. I can say they have a great movie selection, but the good stuff is always checked out(so you have to put it on hold).

Cool avatar by the way. ;)

Lol, dont you just hate that Internet tough guy additude


I had never heard of the "Internet Tough Guy" (it is VERY self explanatory), however, I did a google search and this is some text from the first page I was sent to:
______________________________
'Internet Tough Guys' are people who talk tough online because they don't have to fear physical reprisal.

Common usage
The abbreviation ITG is used to point out the silliness and obvious posturing of someone trying too hard to seem powerful.

"kerrect my grammer much more yelping dogs and i kerrect ur life and make it ded. „

—Qaopan, instilling fear throughout Forumfall.

Sample Dialogue of an ITG
"[15:58] XXXX: with my testicles dangerling too
[16:02] XXXX: What I ment is I'll stomp your bullsh*t and sooner or later other people take offense and join yourside and I'll stomp them too.
[16:02] XXXX: Good luck banning me Im proxy expert
[16:02] XXXX: and I can wipe my index.dat no problem..

Example Sentences
I'd like to see you say that to my face, ITG.

did they let people order 100 copies of EDF? i checked the sale 2 minutes after it started and they were sold out. Thats ridiculous. I sent an email telling them they are just feeding flippers but I bet they don't even care.

I'd never heard of EDF, saw it earlier as the last deal and thought it was a DS or Wii game.

Decided to watch a video of it after it sold out so fast...I want this game now :(

Brink for PS3 now has Free Standard Shipping.

I held off because I didn't want anything else to reach $25...now this is making it a bit harder to stay away from.

Anyone here play the game? Is it really as bad as some say it is? I'm not looking for perfection or anything, just something fun and enjoyable.

I just got Brink today, and yeah, it's almost worth $20 if the free dlc is packed with content and trophies.

The game is just really quick, I started it up last night and I'm already done with the resistance team. I still need to do the challenges and security team, but it's the same maps. and, like mindjack and other recent games, the online/offline is the same game but with bots taking place of real players. It seems like it would be fun with a bunch of friends maybe. Im gonna play with my grrl for a few days and flip them for 20 even, maybe even keep a copy, but 20 is almost what it's worth, lil less, but for new can't complain.

i got my 1st copy through gohastings for 20ish.

Now EDF PS3 ships in 1 to 3 weeks while 360 version is in stock.

Seems like amazon sold more copies of 360 than PS3.

Anyway, I'm glad that I was patiently waiting at my computer for the deal to go live.

LOL @ feednig flippers. Where exactly does EDF trade for anything?
amazon was giving 18.50 away earlier, but that's a loss, plus they lowered it.
peace n quit blaming flippers for losing out on deals. i missed this too, i blame myself tho for not being on here the moment it started, oh well, $20 price point edf soon enough, its not like we dont have huge backlogs ;)

The bestsellers list has the 360 version at #4xx and PS3 version at #7xx. So I assumed they sold more copies of the 360 version (or allocated more 360 copies for the lightning deal).

I would have picked it up for the ps3 but considering I already have the first one on the 360 I just went ahead and added this one for the same console.

One of the local libraries a few towns over from me has video games you can rent, but you have to live in the town (we're in the same county) to rent it. The other libraries usually can ship over movies to your local library, but they refuse to ship over games... probably because of taxes and all that fun shit.

Also, you guys are really hyping this game, and it's somewhat contagious.

Love the Regular Show + VG Cats avatars, by the way.

Could you have imagined EDF on the B1G1 40% off list? I don't know if half of the people who got their copies would have.

EDF 2017 used is for sale on GS.com for $20, EDF:IA used is not.

That actually happened to me too! I got on my work break at 7:20 and everything was already sold out. I'm sure it'll be that price too, but I'm not sure if I want to wait... D';

I was trying to get ghost warrior, and I added it to my cart but then I saw it had the b1g40% off on the main product page, so I was testing that out trying to see how to get it to work. during that time I removed it from my cart to properly test all the regular variables of the deal. And then when I went to add it to my cart again, having decided you didn't need to add the game from the page of all the games, and adding from the deals page would still work for that 40% off, it no longer let me add the game to my cart. and now I'm sad. and that is my great tale of woe and mishaps in amazon deal getting.

now I'm just interested in EDF. 20 would be an awesome price. probably with be $30 is my guess.


Ha, that makes me feel better now, I did the same thing a few months ago. Don't remember what game, but I was screwed, after I figured out what I did, i called up amazon to speak to a live person, couldn't for the life of me, get them to understand what I meant, and what happened. Nothing came from my call. :cry:

At least I got Mass Effect 2 for $30(This wasn't the price when I crashed this morning) and Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for $20 today, plus Brink for $20. Not a bad day.8-)

Sorry, I was misremembering. I grew up playing Jazz Jackrabbit and Duke Nukem and for some reason thought they were both developed by Apogee. Wikipedia set me straight on that.


Oh, yea, didn't even take developer into consideration, just looked at the fact it was a creature and he had speed, lol

Jazz Jackrabbit hint is most likely a game created by Epic Games (CliffyB) , so i would say bulletstorm is a really good bet.


Good guess!

Brink is the kind of game you play on the PC. I don't know if there was and wish there would have been some kind of MP Beta. I remember the game getting so much hype before release and it nuked.
