I really like this exchange between these two. I’m not exactly sure why Jo is so cranky at the moment. Maybe she’s channeling her inner Sith. I guess it can’t be sunshine and flowers all the time. XD
As always, I appreciate the game feedback. I don’t have Xbox Live, so I can hold out for a while on Mass Effect 3 if the only code in the new box is to play multiplayer. I really want to play it right now though. Except I’ll get obsessed with it and I have a lot to do at the moment.
I also found out that they are selling the figures that come with Skylanders 3DS seperately, or at least Ignitor, so I could concieveably get a used copy of the game for cheap and just find Ignitor someplace. I have Stealth Elf already, and Dark Spyro is basically a pallette swap, so he’s not a real concern. If I came across him in a store I might consider getting him if I had everyone else already and had some extra munnies. So he’s fucked basically. Anyway, I’ve seen the game go for as little as $7 minus the figures. (Which is still bullshit if you’re claiming the set is new.) Even with shipping that’s a good deal.
I’m probably going to give the rest of the series a miss and just play Assasin’s Creed 3 when it hits the greatest hits bin. So it’ll be a long time before I get my hands on it. I might go one game back just to see what the deal is with everything. Potentially I could go as far back as 2 since the consensus seems to be that it’s not nearly as tedious as 1. The whole series is low on the priorities list no matter how you look at it. I can just get a friend to tell me the story of the games in painstaking detail before I start.
Batman 2 is probably a GOTY kind of purchase. Just get all the stuff at once so I don’t have to deal with the damn Xbox points cards. I really hate having to wait so long for it, but whatchagonnado?
I’m still not sold on Kid Icarus. Not sure what to do there. Nintendo has started only dropping prices after a decade, so waiting them out is nearly impossible. A used game with extra parts is always trouble too. It is a puzzlement.
None of this takes in to account the possibility that a game could appear that trumps all other priorities. A new Castlevania sidescroller, for example, would be an easy choice. A new Advance Wars/Fire Emblem. These are longshots, but every so often I get surprised by announcements like that.
