All About ironcreed
Well, my 42" Samsung Plasma (which I only owned for a year and a half) finally bit the dust a few days ago. Needless to say, I have been spending the better part of a week shopping around. After looking through mountains of televisions, I finally decided on a 32" Panasonic Viera 1080P LCD. Plenty big enough for me, I wanted to go LCD this time around and the Viera line has a great rep.
The way I see it, I was way over due for an upgrade anyway. As my Plasma was a 4 year old 1080i that I bought used from a friend. It served it's purpose well for the past year and a half and I more than got my money's worth out of it for the sum I pad for it ($150.00). At any rate, I bought new without hesitation this time and should have it by the end of the week. I feel like a kid waiting for a new toy.
Ah, so many games. The question is, how many of these will I actually consider to be worthy of a $60.00 price tag after the year is over with? As someone who regularly buys every game that appeals to me, I am simply getting sick and tired of shelling out the money for them just to have them on day one or shortly thereafter. Just too much money spent on games that I may only play through one time, only to move on to the next games that appeal to me afterwards.
On to my decision to rent from Gamefly. I am fully aware that I will often have to wait for some of the more high profile titles, but for $23.00 a month, I can still get $120.00 worth of games (2 at a time) to play for as long as I want. When I come across the keepers, I can simply buy from them after knowing that I love the game. Seems to me that for someone who voraciously plays games like I do, this is only a logical choice and will save me quite a chunk of change in the end. If it does not work out, I can always just cancel. At any rate, I figured it was worth a shot.
I just scored Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance, both BRAND NEW and factory sealed on Ebay for 40.00.There are people selling the bonus game bundle package that comes with the 360 Elite, and both games come in one case with their respective manuals. But who cares if both are in one case? They are brand new, and at retail, both would go for 90.00 if bought together elsewhere.
I have been wanting a good racing game, and I never got around to playing Ultimate Alliance yet, so this was a sweet find for me, at a steal of a price. If anyone is interested, there were more than a few of these floating around on Ebay at reasonable prices. A hell of a deal, if you ask me.
