    I've had this since Bioshock 2 came out, but had framed the album without intending to take the shrinkwrap off. Now that I am fully convinced that these LEs were in no way limited, I've opened up the vinyl and have been listening to it this evening.
    Spoiler:

    It's surprisingly high-quality vinyl. I had forgotten how absolutely fantastic the Bioshock soundtrack is, it's certainly one of my favorite game scores of all time. Christ, I wish more game soundtracks were available on vinyl! Also note that it's the score from the first game, not the second.


    [EDIT] Also, Twin Peaks is fantastic.

    Wasn't there a vinyl record for Bioshock that had some music, and then some
    Spoiler:
    interspersed into the track? I remember there was a video on Giant Bomb of Coonce trying to beat match two records at once.

    I don't think I posted this when I first got it as my girlfriend had the camera.

    Well, even if I did, this is a replacement because I was having issues with my original model.

    Hm, not that I've noticed. I was out of the room on a few tracks though, I'll relisten and report back on that. Was there a different Bioshock vinyl I'm not aware of?

    The first of my Black Friday packages arrived!

    IMG_0400.jpg

    It's...a game for the system that doesn't come in until tomorrow!

    At least it has gorgeous box art!

    Been wanting to play this for a long time now, I was going to wait for the HD release on XBLA/PSN, but I figured hey, $15, might as well just give it a shot now.

    All this arrived today! The negative impressions of Brutal Legend (short, pseudo RTS etc.) are positives in my book, it sounded like a great little game for the weekend. Clash of Heroes will be my go-to portable game for quite a while.

    Yeah the DS is the way to go for SIE. I did not like the 360 and PSP versions either because of the inferior music.

    Well, at least he didn't buy 60+ copies and claimed it was backwards compatible with the Wii. That would be insidious.

    Anyway, I happen to get around opening my copy of Enslaved this weekend. It's an alright game that's marred by a lame ass ending.

    Are you talking about Infinity Gene, or something else? Because I haven't played the iPhone version, but I think the PS3 version of Infinity Gene is awesome. I say this as someone who has and likes the DS Space Invaders Extreme games. I love the soundtrack to Infinity Gene, and also how it's full of clever little references to other shootemups.

    Infinity Gene. The iPhone is just not cut out to play games that aren't Angry birds, it seems.

    At first, I was just ordering one for me, then I saw that the PS3 version was better, then I realized I could make some money from it so I ordered a second. Only got two copies total, but I really could've ordered so many more than that. I'm on CAG, but don't post over there.

    Rent's Amazon Black Friday Adventure

    So Black Friday hit me fairly hard because, well, Amazon exists

    So

    I picked some stuff up

    Not everything arrived, but a significant amount and I'm going to show it off

    So Amazon had some sweet deals on stuff, so here's what I picked up:
    Spoiler:

    All these movies/tv shows are on blu ray and were 10 bucks or less. Everyone hopefully took advantage of the first 3 seasons of Mad Men being 10 bucks on amazon, because seriously holy shit what a deal
    Spoiler:

    Resonance of Fate, 30 bucks


    but who gives a shit about that, it's about this motherfucker:
    Spoiler:

    See Amazon was having a lightning deal on this from 4: 30 to 8: 30 am, where this (which is normally 200 bucks, at least) was 125 dollars. That's 80 bucks of fucking savings, i had to jump on that ship asap. No tax, too, which is like another 15 bucks

    So anyways this shit is fucking rad as fuck check this shit out
    Spoiler:

    the back of the box

    Open it up, and look inside:
    Spoiler:

    Holy shit this is so fucking rad goddamn

    Let's look inside, shall we
    Spoiler:

    Complete episode guide and map
    Spoiler:

    DHARMA light, it's on my car key now
    Spoiler:

    ankh and letter and light in the top right hand corner
    Spoiler:

    Serket game board
    Spoiler:

    Oh yeah, here's the complete series dvd case. 36 discs all in some really, really sweet binding
    Spoiler:

    See? look at how sweet that binding is
    Spoiler:

    Aaaand the compartments on the box opened up. As you can see, there's game pieces and shit in the sides

    But let's check out the bottom piece again, shall we?
    Spoiler:

    Looks completely normal to me. Hmm...wonder what happens if we turn the lights off and shine our DHARMA light at iWHOASHIT
    Spoiler:

    It's a motherfucking secret fucking message! Holy shit!

    Decode that shit...and...the map? Huh?
    Spoiler:

    I did buy three shirts though.

    And a plush steamboat willie mickey. Looked way too cool to pass up.

    Anyways

    BLACK FRIDAY - THE HAUL

    IMG_0402.jpg

    PICTURED

    - Red Nintendo Wii, includes a Wii remote with built-in Motion Plus, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Wii Sports (pffft)
    - Bayonetta for 360. I got a hankering to play it the other day which was coincidentally when I saw it on sale.
    - Final Fantasy XIII, which I hated on the first go-round, but hey, for $15 I may as well give it another shot when I'm really bored
    - Donkey Kong Country Returns
    - Metroid: Other M
    - Wii Classic Controller Plus
    - Muramasa: The Demon Blade
    - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, this better be a sweet read, the movie was great
    - iPhone 3GS, because I wanted an upgrade from my old 3G but I like the way the 3GS looks better than the 4

    Not pictured is a Nyko Charge Station because, I mean, why advertise that? And also season three of Dexter, which comes tomorrow.

    Samurai Champloo is pretty damn fantastic! Just got my boyfriend to watch his first full anime series with me, Cowboy Bebop of course. And it was fantastic as always.

    Also, I wish [as] would bring back new episodes of FMA: Brotherhood already, it's been quite a while since they went on hiatus with it. I started reading the manga a while back (up to volume 18 now), and I'm past the anime at this point. But I would definitely pick up a box set of the show once all the episodes are out.
