More Games and More Figures

Posted by zerofigures on July 23, 2008

So as of June 12th, 2008, I became the proud owner of a brand new, un-bounced, Playstation 3.  As the proud owner of a 360 Elite and being a self proclaimed “gamer”, I decided that June12th was the right day to get my PS3 since I purchased the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle and got a free $100 Walmart gift card.  Woo Hoo!!!

So here I am with MGS4 and no true desire to play it.  I never played any other MGS’s for more than 20 minutes.  Luckily I had pre-purchased Heavenly Sword awaiting the glorious day I got my PS3, the artwork for Heavenly Sword is just so beautiful I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.  But Once I’m done with those two games what is this system good for?  What am I going to do with it, Watch Blu Ray Movies all day and night?! Ummm,  no thanks.  I for one wanted HD-DVD to win but that another story.

Today I became the owner of three Playstation 3 exclusives.  Warhawk, Resistance: Fall of Man, and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  My plan is to only but PS3 exclusive games for my PS3 while games released for both system’s would be purchased on 360.  It may seem a bit stupid but most of my friends have 360’s and if I’m playing online it’s usually on my 360.  Plus I like my achievements and while PS3 will get “Trophies”, I’m not to psyched since its obviously and achievement knock-off.

Today’s news games get add to an already long list of unplayed games (was about 10 and now it’s 13) that’s not even including a couple of PS2 games.  It’s crazy but it’s satisfying to know that when I want to play the games, they are there waiting for me and I won’t have to hunt down a used & Abused copy on eBay or somewhere else.

Am I the only one who does this?  Sure, back in the day when we were young and got a game, we’d run home and tear into it but now I’m a bit more reserved now and have more things to do.  I guess if it were a  new electronic gadget, it’d be a different story but I know the game is mine and not going anywhere.  Another huge problem is the extremely fun replay ability of Halo 3 with friends.  Seems like every other night if not every night, I’m either getting a call or making a call to play Halo 3.  Probably be playing soon, once I’ve taken care of some tasks.  Thanks Microsoft for keeping me from all of my many other games and for supporting Halo 😉

When it comes down to it, it’s all just fun and games anyway.  Right?

In All of the excitement about getting my games, I almost forgot about the largest of today’s packages. My 1/6 Tina from Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, I’ve gotten all of them beginning with Kasumi and will say that the prices have gotten increasingly higher and higher *sigh*.  The new Kokoro is reaching upwards of $90 on some sites, almost 3 times the original price of Kasumi.  These are indeed hard times to be collecting figures but I pray it will get better one day.

    I’ve played every game I have, but some a lot more than others. With limited time to play I usually default to the old and trusted stand-bys like Halo, Halo 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Burnout Revenge while other things, things I do want to play more of, just sit and wait
