Lately I have been pretty much addicted to Gears of War online multiplayer. I will probably focus on Halo 3 online and Heavenly Sword again this week.

I just beat The Simpson's Game tonight. Really short, controls and mechanics aren't terrific, but the amount of videogame in-jokes makes the game an ABSOLUTE must-play to anyone who calls themselves a gamer. It's not short of hilarious.

As soon as I have something to play it on (again), I'll get right on it.

Today I bought XBox Platinum Hits: Star Wars Republic Commando. It's a fun game and it was only $20. Also, it is backwards compatible for XBox 360.

Yeah, Republic Commando is awesome. I actually think I reviewed it here back when it came out.

Yeah, I just wish there were more people playing it on XBox Live.

I encountered a couple super battle droids in single player mode, cool stuff. I wonder what else is waiting for me further in the game.

I was in an odd mood the other day so I went into a Gamestop and they had some 9.99 deals going on so I checked out what they had.

I walked out with a game for every system funny enough. I got "Soul Caliber 2" for my 360, my roommate wanted it and I can see why cause she kicked my ass when we played. Fun game all in all, I know I'm late though on that party wagon. It is neat to see that the game is presented in 720 HD. You don't see many old games presented in HD.

I also got "Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare" for Gamecube. I know it's probably going to suck but I never played it and for 10 bucks I won't argue. Plus the animation bits were cool in the 2nd game.

And lastly I got "Legacy Of Kain: Defiance" for the PS2. Which I wanted to get all three for my 360 but Mutant Nightmare they only had for GC and this one I had to get for PS2 because the backwards compatibility doesn't work on it.

I actually got to play LOK a little. I had rented it back when it came out and being a fan of the story I wanted to pick it up to see how it ends. The gameplay is uhh different but I can suffer through it to see the story.

About 30 bucks, not to bad for some old games that all have their manuals*I'm rather anal about complete items* Something funny I noticed was there were a lot of "Kingdom Hearts" and "Halo"s sitting around. It made me laugh cause at CD stores you see alot of bad CDs sitting around in the used section but it seems at game stores it's the opposite and the bad games are harder to find and there's tons of good ones laying around.

People dump everything when it comes to games. I've noticed it's mostly because crappy games aren't worth anything. If someone is trading games, it's usually because they don't have the money to toss away on a new game, and you're not going to get anything for your copy of Ford Trucks Racing 2, so you've got to resort to, regrettably, getting rid of the good stuff.

I had to do it when my 360 broke. I unfortunately got caught with several bills to pay and some other things I needed to acquire later in the week, so I couldn't afford to just drop $500 on an Elite. It was either wait over a week to play Halo 3, (a wait that would have reached upwards of a month. As I just recently got my old 360 replaced by Futureshop) or trade in a bunch of games in order to be able to afford one.

My library took a mighty hit that day, my friends. Mighty indeed. Hits including games like Kingdom Hearts, God of War II, my entire PS3 collection (minus Heavenly Sword) and a good deal of my 360 collection. A sad, sad day. F*ck me....God.

That makes sense, though ironically it sort of makes bad games harder to find and thus in a sense makes their value go up. That's solely from a collectors point of view though, and there's always someone out there who will like Ford Truck Racing alot.

I would also like to know how you like Call of Duty 4, Peanut. I'm glad this game is modern warfare, it's about time that they leave those virtual Nazi bastards totally dead and move on to kicking someone else's virtual ass.

It's really great so far. Can't speak for the multi-player, as like the previous 2 CoD games, I'll probably never play it. But I play for single-player anyways, and that's top notch.

Republic Commando is really great! If you liked the games you should read the books. Also I just bought Guitar Hero 3.

Oh cool, I didn't know there were Republic Commando books. I wonder if there will be a Republic Commando 2 game. That would be sweet! I like your sig.

2 of my roomates have COD4 and the multiplayer looks pretty cool. I play a match and its 10x better than previous versions. I would think about getting it but I have a school bill to pay and Assassins Creed and Super Mario Galaxy next week.

Hey Mr. Snackpants, what's up? Do you have the 24 game for PS2? I bought it when it came out, it's pretty good.

Hey man. Naw I don't even have a PS2. But I did rent it when I had a PS2. It was alright. It was supposed to tell a story between seasons right? Its been awhile and I totally forgot.
