Buying a PS3 before getting an HDTV


Around the Network

Losing several consoles that I used to own (Dreamcast, broken PS1)

Not getting into the Playstation thing (PS1/PS2) sooner, now playing catch-up.

Buying Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem and Baten Kaitos Origins.

Playing MGS2, expecting to go back to playing as Snake or at least move to a different level besides the Big Shell but..............

Not beating FF7 the first time I got it in 2000. Saving my brothers money by getting Freedom Fighters instead of paying more for Super Mario Galaxy...why?.....

Being too afraid to play Resident Evil 1 (GC) for years, but then beating it last month and loving it.

Seeing Azure Dreams at Sam Goody for $15 and not exhausting every means of acquisition before it disappeared forever...................that has to be my BIGGEST ONE. I think about it everyday.

 - Buying an original gameboy advance. I liked the games for it, but the lack of a backlight made it impossible to play a lot of the time. Felt like one of the worst things I've ever owned from a hardware perspective. Mine was also translucent purple. Eww

- Selling my SNES and games.

- Not buying a wavebird gc controller sooner because they're now hard to find.

In my teens, I had a real thing against stylized and cel-shaded graphics, despite being a big Nintendo fan. Because of this, I didn't play though Wind Waker, Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door and others. I've since bought them, though.

These days, ironically, I think I prefer stylized graphics, and seeing the unique graphic style has been a big factor in a number of my recent game purchases, including Okami, Tales of Vesperia, Punch-Out!! and, of course, Valkyria Chronicles.

Buying a PS3. The games were obviously not for me. I'm softcore.

Hmm. I read this, and for some reason I imagined you as a poker player.


Player 1: Call, raise 100

Player 2: Call.

Player 3: Fold.

Player 4: Crap, out of chips... Can I bet my Dreamcast?


After losing the hand:


Player 4: Say, any of you guys have a PSP?

not buying DKC 2 and Super Metroid when I had the chance back in the day

Buying GTAIV over Uncharted...

4 ≈ One

Buying a used Ikaruga game on a paper envelope. >.>


I am a Breakout Bat.
I am an abstract sort of creature, who dislikes any sort of restraint. If you try to pigeonhole me, I'll break the box, and come back for more. I don't have any particular ambitions, I just drift, but I am adept at keeping life going along.
