Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The APRIL PICK-UP THREAD - because you don't have enough things.

[Thread Logo to Come]

In a thread idea shamelessly stolen primarily from NeoGAF, here's Penny-Arcade's official Pick-Up Thread, the first in a series.

This is the thread where you post what you've picked up recently. Show your gaming/geek cred & pride here.

Over on the GAF they had out bans for posting stock images, and I don't have the power, so all I can do is ask nicely:

Post ACTUAL pictures you've taken yourself! No one cares to see pictures they can find on google images....

In addition, DO NOT CRITICIZE other people's pick ups. This is a friendly thread. No need for insults!

So have fun. Go!

I love this thread, so let it be reborn! The first thread died back on the 12th. That's four days. Four days without a pickup thread.

For shame!

Also: seriously, can someone with a modicum of electronic artistry make us a logo? Update: Thanks Figgy!

    I was hoping someone else would make one, so I wouldn't have to bother with changing the thread title every month. Because, y'know - lazy.

    Edit:

    Not everyone has cameras - and that's understandable - but we can all appreciate that this

    The Kindle 3 Wi-fi came in today, which can be seen being broken in with my first experience with Discworld. I'm adoring it so far, the book and the device. Plus this thing totally can get minesweeper on it, or so I hear.

    You can get Minesweeper. You can also get Panda Poet and Triple Town. I haven't played them, but I love the descriptions the author gives of their design process.

    I'm consistently tempted by RE5:Gold - and I want to try the Ys series, but from what I know it's a very old game that's been repeatedly up-ported. Granted, that's likely because it's so awesome, but I don't have much luck with trying to get engaged in older JRPGS.

    Also, pickups! Brotherhood is way, way better than I expected it to be (after about 90 minutes with the title) and Tekkonkinkreet for less than $40 is just faaaabulous.

    My most recent acquisitions:

    Motorstorm - The first one, PS3, 10 bucks. I can't believe I never played this one until a couple months ago!
    3D Dot Game Heroes - Needed something to hold me over until New Vegas. My custom characters MiniFridge, Rake and Chair kept me company until then!
    Fallout: New Vegas - My wife quit playing once she hit a quest bug that wouldn't register mission objectives completed if she talked to the NPC(s) involved before starting the mission. More for me!

    I don't have pictures because it's almost midnight, and I'm not messing with that shit tonight.

    Assassin's Creed so far is fun.
    Sonic Colours is great, but there are some bits at the end that made me go "huh?"
    Goldeneye 007 DS is the sweat on my left nut. Really average.
    No More Heroes will be better witha bit of waggle (Move support soon!)
    American Dad is as usual delightful.

    I didn't actually think they'd make it Sonic Colours for Europe. I figured Sega would either be too lazy to do it, or they'd needlessly delay the game 5 months while they "localized" it.

    The pick-up thread was dead so I couldn't show you guys before

    IMG_0378.jpg

    Also, for those that frequent this thread often, you may recall that a few months back (in June), I ordered a Plumtree shirt (as seen as in the film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World). After a month, it never came in, so I e-mailed the band, and they sent me a second one with a couple of their CDs as a way of saying sorry. Two days after they sent out the second shirt, the first one finally arrived, and about a week later, the second shirt with the CDs as promised.

    Well, today I walked inside and there was a package for me. I was bewildered, as I had not ordered anything. The package was covered in a plastic wrap that had the following sticker on it:

    IMG_0379.jpg

    And inside the package?

    IMG_0380.jpg

    For some reason they sent me a third shirt a few days ago (the postmark says November 10), and apparently it got beat to holy hell on the way here

    So I now have three identical Plumtree shirts, one of which is torn

    just came back from an awesome local BTTF 25th anniversary celebration down in Framingham, and figured I'd post some more stuff I got since last time.

    ScottandKirby2.jpg

    On the left, best movie of this year IMO. On the right, really cool looking game that's a bit easy and I guess nobody really talks about here.

    FluxLEDPin.jpg

    Flux capacitor pin that I received for donating to the Michael J. Fox fund. This was at the aforementioned event, and another 10 bucks would've let me sit in the Delorean model they had parked outside.

    QuestionBox.jpg

    Huh, what's this?

    ... I guess I'll have to open it, only one way to open these kinds of boxes, I'll just get a running start here, little jump later aaaand,

    Questionbox2.jpg

    There we go, nice solid hit which pops this out,

    Mariostatue.jpg

    and it's my mario figurine from Club Nintendo! It's a little smaller than I thought, but for free I can't complain, gonna make a real nice decoration for my desk here. a few more pics,

    Mariostatue3.jpg

    Mariostatue2.jpg

    The one thing I've noticed is that occasionaly, while playing, bits of food that I've previously eaten seem to be coming back up into my mouth, but a bib solved that quickly enough.
