    I know what I'm doing tomorrow: Going through all my Wii games and registering them. At least that way they're getting some use.

    Spoiler:

    Okay, that Mecha Sonic is awesome. Where did you get that?! The only Sonic game I'm aware of Mecha Sonic being in is Sonic & Knuckles, so I can't help but think that must be rare (side note- I am partial to the Mecha Sonic from the comic series). Also, I love your picture of him holding the DS stylus!
    Spoiler:

    Is that an artbook?

    I remember when I was really into Sonic and Megaman in my younger years and could never, ever find Sonic or Megaman stuff anywhere (other than video games, of course). They used to make some bitchin MegaMan action figures... my 7 year-old self loved them.

    Funny you mention both Sonic and Megaman in the same post. That Metal Sonic toy is called a "JUVI", which stands for "Jazware Urban Vinyl" figure. It's similar to the munny and mighty muggs figures that are on the market. They make Sonic versions and Mega Man versions.
    Spoiler:

    The Metal Sonic figure was "exclusive" to Comic Con last year but Toys R Us sold it for a while, which is where I got it from.

    And yes, those are Mega Man Art Books, containing art, sketches and other bits of history. They're Available at Amazon, though I bought mine from the local Borders bookstore. In addition to the great artwork, there's alot of little blurbs here and there that detail the development process.

    It's not a game...but I think it certainly qualifies under the nerd umbrella

    Got this in the mail today! Like Darksiders before it, I am being inundated with shiny covers!

    Some form of resolution! Seriously, this show has had the most fucking depressing season finales so far

    You have at least one more season to go if you want resolution. Still, awesome for you. :)

    The case is weird, though... is that a new design?



    Just ordered The Club and Project Sylpheed from the NewEgg "sale," and I'll be ordering a new laptop as soon as my tax return is in hand. G51JX-A1 go go!

    Yeah, they did a slimmer repackaging in 2009

    Somehow that brought the prices down from "astronomical" to "fairly reasonable"

    This isn't a new game, but I think I got a pretty good deal here. Behold!

    D2nPZ.jpg

    I found this yesterday afternoon at Kmart. I do a regular check of their clearance game section, and this was in there. What's strange is that I haven't seen a copy of FF6 Advance at this Kmart since about 2008, and it definitely wasn't in the clearance area the last time I visited about two weeks ago. Yet there it was, stuffed in with a bunch of copies of "Deal Or No Deal." Made me do a double take. :P

    K-Mart is like a store stuck in some sort of time warp. I'll find games that are 4 or 5 years old in there, but still tagged at full price.

    Hell they still have a Gamecube copy of Twilight Princess last I saw marked at $49.99.

    That's actually pretty normal though. Nintendo games never, ever drop in price. At my store we still have copies of Mario Kart: Double Dash at 39.99.

    Hell, I still think we have copies of Smash Bros. Melee at around the same price.

    Man, I'm sorely tempted. I need something to fill the gap between completing ME2 and Bioshock 2 next Tuesday... I'm wanting to pick up White Knight Chronicles tomorrow, but I can't complete that by the time Bio2 comes out, and that'll attract my attention... maybe a nice $5 Live game can handle it :D

    maximumzero: That pearly white uniformity is what I want my setup to look like. What model of Samsung TV is that, and how's the quality? Anyone know of any nice white HDTVs? I'm only seeing 20"ish Samsungs through Google and Amazon, and I want something to match my Nintendo consoles.

    Also, to UnbreakableVow: is it still possible to get that white import PS3? Play-Asia's all out. I'm going to look around right now. Don't really want to get a PS3 and send it off to be painted, because that's sort of cheating.

    EDIT: Well, eBay's got some for about $650. That's a pretty penny, but at least it's not up to like $1,000+.

    The TV I have is the Samsung LNT-1954H. To my knowledge it's no longer in production. I purchased it in late 2007 from the CompUSA that I worked at not long before they started closing down, and even at that time it was technically outdated.

    It's a 19-inch, and if I remember properly, they also made a 22-inch (Or might have been 23"/24") though CompUSA only carried the 19-incher.

    I'm so pleased with the picture quality even on Wii games that I'm pretty much set for buying only Samsung HDTVs for my entire life until I get a dud or two. According to Samsung's website they do make a current 19-inch model but I don't see anything larger than that from Samsung. If you search "White TV" or "White LCD TV" on Amazon a bunch come up, but I don't know what is current and what's old product.

    My biggest excuse is, typically when I buy a game on Live?

    It goes on sale 50% off the following week.

    I think I literally owned every single game that was on sale during the 12 Days of New Years or w/e sale... it was depressing.

    The ones around here are pretty aggressive about price reducing older games, most of the time. (Nintendo games tend to be an exception.) This particular one also likes to carry some harder-to-find stuff; it was the only store in the area to carry Persona 3 FES, for example. So if you're patient and check once a month or so, you can get some good deals.

    It's pretty much the only reason to go in there, though, because it's a depressing pit.

    Okay so I really hate screen protectors now. In my impatience for my Hori's to arrive from Amazon I bought a Best Buy screen protector and slapped it on there. Of course bubbles and dust out the wazoo. Even though I had it nearly perfect, I pulled it up in an attempt to get it really perfect. Of course this made it worse.

    So now do I leave the screen protector on with my screen looking shitty or do I rip it off and leave my PSP screen susceptible to scratches? Dammit.
