I figured I throw up an ad on Craigslist to see if anybody wanted it. I listed it for $550.00 and so far I have received three e-mails about it.

1. Lady offered me $500 I countered with $530 never heard back

2. Guy offered to trade me his $1200 car audio system for it

3. Guy offered me no money but said he could come to my house and "work it off" buy doing odd jobs for me.


1) you mean you weren't hit with an insane lowball like $250 or somebody willing to take payments.
2) I'm surprised how often car audio stuff is used as barter currency
3) That just seems awkward. I've never heard of anybody offering that before.

I haven't played GTA online except for character creation and the beginning race.

Gonna need to start soon, since I'm on the final heist and have the majority of the side-missions complete.

yeah...just did the final heist (be ready to spend some time on it... it's pretty long. well, the follow up to it is long. essentially you don't really have an opportunity for a quicksave). Now i'm working on side missions as well as online stuff.

finally got to sit around and do nothing but play Wind Waker this weekend. Got through the Temple of the Gods, picked up all the map drawings from the fish, the $5000 wallet, hurricane spin, extra magic meter, and 60 bomb pack. need to head back to Windfall and do some side quests now

Finished the Temple of Time board, restored that girls memory, got all of those owl statues, and played up to and beat the miniboss on the sky Temple. I stopped there, but having two clawshots is pretty cool.

I'm guessing I'm like 85% of the way through the game. I got 55 poe souls and I think 40 heart pieces. Also collected all the bugs, caught each kind of fish and pretty much have everything I can possibly get right now.

Man did used video game prices skyrocket (or at least for the NES). I stopped into the Exchange the other day. I saw Luigi's Mansion for Gamecube in there and always wanted to buy it because it just looked fun. I remember like 2 years ago, it was $7, and I passed because I thought that was too much.

Now it's $34. And I noticed a lot of the other games like the Zeldas and Mario Party games are up around $40-50.

I know the retro game collection has taken off, but some of it is crazy. I'm glad I got most of my 400 or so NES games for pretty cheap back when no one was buying them.

Been thinking about getting into the Bioshock series. The last franchise I heavily invested myself in was Mass Effect, so I'm behind the times.

BS2 is kinda useless; didn't really enjoy it at all, felt like a cash grab. But BS1 is fantastic, and Infinite is the second best game I've ever played.

I ordered BS1 on Amazon for $5.00, figure I'll give it a play and let it suck me in or not.

Can't complain for $5.00. Worst case scenario you only wasted $5.00.

BS2 wasn't even made by the same people. This is IMMEDIATELY apparent when playing Infinite. Infinite had that "It" factor that BS2 did not.

Forgot to mention that PSN started a rewards program, and I would sign-up and link your accounts before you buy anything else.

I have to say, Infinite really disappointed me. I can't say why for fear of spoilers, but it didn't provide on the promise of the original Bioshock.

Metroid: The Other M is still $40-$50 the last time I checked. Nintendo first party games don't drop in price hardly ever.

I swear I picked up that Metriod game for $4.99 last Black Friday at Best Buy.

Black Friday is one of the few times you can get games like that at reduced price.

I bought Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 on separate Black Fridays years ago, and they hardly ever budged after that.

Crap I am starting to talk myself into keeping my XB1 pre-order. I think I am going to wait till I see a review of that Ryse game before I decide for sure.
