All About etmaul
I'm back! Over three years without a post, but I'm still here. I've got to update my collection but I've added quite a few games, especially on my iPhone. On my last post, I was all about the DS, but honestly, my iPhone has become my everything! I still have my Wii though so that's awesome. Granted I did have to send it to Nintendo to get it repaired (and lose my Super Mario Galaxy save in the process (ARGH!)) but it was totally worth it. After having Metroid: Other M for over 2 years, I finally completed it in about a month. Sure, it shouldn't have taken that long, but 2 kids will totally deplete your game time, and make late night gaming sessions few and far between. Two nights ago, I finished Limbo for the PC, what an accomplishment I must say! That game was tough! I had to pat myself mentally on the back, even though I had to look up one chapter (34) but other than that, all on my own. My next conquests you ask, Far Cry and Metroid Prime: Echoes. I try and balance it out between my systems but I refuse to put a iPhone game in there, because I have so many to play. Thus, my only dilemma is this, I just got Pikmin 2 for the Wii, do I dare start it?!
I have to tell you, I'm really trying to keep up with gaming these days. Now that I'm started in my career of Air Traffic Control, I find I have less and less time to game...but things are looking up!
I must say that when I do have a chance, you can find me curled up on the couch getting in a good session of Nintendo DS's Air Traffic Chaos (go figure.) I just picked up GTA: Chinatown Wars and am amazed at how awesome the game is. My wife just picked up Professor Layton for the DS and she is enjoying that as well. I'm happy to report that I just completed Ace Combat: Fires of Liberation for the 360, and now I'm onto Blazing Angels which is a great arcade flyer in its own right. I'm also trying to complete Beyond Good & Evil on the PC, but it's been touch and go these past couple months
In the end, I have so many games to play, and so little time to do it. But some way, some how, I can always find time to get a good session in, no matter how big or small. When I will finish these games is beyond me, but at least I'm trying to keep up!
Until next time!
17Jan 08So yesterday was pretty normal, worked, went out to have chinese, nothing out of the ordinary, until Gamestop. While I was eating din-din with the wife, I noticed a guy walking through the mall with a huge Gamestop bag. I used every bit of my vision to see what was in it, and then I saw the box...Wii. At that point, I knew I had to act. Okay, it was my beautiful wife who told me we should go to GS and see if they had anymore. Walked in, asked the rep and lone behold, they had one! I was told him I'd take one, and then, to my surprise, my wife said she'd buy one too, I almost hit the floor. Now it's not like we don't have one; I was lucky enough to get one launch day by doing the same thing I did today. So next stop, ebay!! Now, last xmas I sold about 6 PS3s and made about $800 profit, so that was awesome. This year, I've been lucky enough to sell 1 (thanks to Wal*Mart) before xmas, which made me about $200 and now I have two to sell. Actually, the one (without WiiPlay I bundled) already made me over $100 and the one I did bundle will end tonight. It just amazes me how much you can make off these systems! I mean, I can understand paying $500 before xmas...okay I can't really understand that, but geez, there must be some desperate people out there. Of course I can say that because I have one, but I'd never pay more than I was supposed to pay for it. I guess that's the great thing about ebay...and Gamestop, and Wal*Mart, and Best Buy, you're making me a bunch of money. Oh, I almost forgot, the most important part of thing that makes this all happen...my credit card!
