    I took me a long time to finish that song. I hate it so much. I don't think I ever got more than three stars on expert, but I would probably fail now, as I haven't touched either game in months.

    Mr. Dave used to draw a lot of hot naked zombie awesomeness.

    Oh man I went to the Marilyn Monroe exhibit at the Fine Arts center here yesterday. There was some really cool stuff. I had never seen the One Night with Marilyn series done by Douglas Kirkland, which was incredible. Also Antonio de Felipe's stuff was amazing, so clean.

    Keep lookin'. I'm sure you'll find something good. If not you can come live in my basement.

    Took us about a month to find a nice place, and it was well worth the wait.

    Hey, if all else fails, you can do the completely sensible thing and stay in my apartment...in Savannah, Georgia.

    Commuting to work might be a toughie, though.

    I think it's just Australia in general at the moment. When you're paying upwards of $600 a week for a standard apartment about 20kms from the CBD, you know something is up.

    I moved back home with the folks and fixed my car up, that said, I'm sick of the 45min drive to and from work on the weekends :\

    I like how they are interconnecting all of these films! They can explain the details in Captain A's movie, but just seeing it's "cameo" here is neato!

    Serious? Shit I just moved (Adelaide) and am paying $260 a week for a 3 bedroom place. I thought that was harsh considering I was paying $160 at my old gaff, but $600, that's only $200 less than what I get paid per week.

    It's $100 more for me >.<

    Old Queenslanders and cottages are cheaper, but for a 2 bedroom Queenslander about 15kms from the CBD is $350 pw. It was a pretty shitty place too, old picture hangers protruding from the walls, back porch was unstable and there was paint peeling in a couple of places. There was a cracked window out the front and the doors to the bedroom had dropped and would jam on the floor.

    Yes

    And yes I need a better job, I could probably snag a photography job easily if I had better equipment. A Nikon D50 doesn't really cut it, I went for an Architectural photography job recently and got rejected because the D50 "isn't a real DSLR" :\

    Yep. I'm looking at half my weekly pay going toward rent unless I can find a share house. I could afford a 2-bedroom apartment by myself three years ago.

    That's insane... I thought my $600 a month for a single bedroom was a lot, but at least it's not weekly!

    Yeah. And now that the american dollar and australian dollar are essentially worth the same amount.... we're being fucked. GTA4 is on sale for $115 here, for instance. What the fuck.

    I have two jobs, one is in a games store. Even us staff bitch about it, you know how hard it is to sell such a ridiculously overpriced product? Our dollar is worth roughly the same amount as the US dollar and we're selling games for more than double the godamn price.

    Well, the 100%+ markup probably isn't justified, but there's a little more to pricing in foreign markets than straight up converting from dollars.

    You have to consider that shipping, and more importantly cost of living and higher average minimum wages can have a huge impact on the price point of consumer goods like videogames, among I'm sure many other factors that I'm not even aware of. It's not strictly fair, but there is a method to the madness.

    Anyway, If I were an Australian I'd only buy region free consoles like a PS3 and just import all my NTSC games from US retailers for a fraction of the price.
