I mentioned last week that I wouldn’t be hopping on the bandwagon with the rest of the game playing world (correction: North American game playing world). In a moment of weakness, I’ve proven myself wrong.
I kept forgetting that I had this $50 Best Buy gift card burning a hole in my pocket. Well, I did set a record of hoarding it for almost two months and that’s only because I detest Best Buy. A need arose for me to pick up a TOS link cable (and I didn’t because Wal-Mart is much cheaper), and I got Halo 3 instead. Oh, and did I fail to mention that it was three days after launch and I didn’t have to wait in line?
If you look at my Bungie stats, you’ll see that I’ve played less than ten games. Every one of them has been a blast. I was even able to hook up with Tony and another online friend for a couple of hours of co-op.
Oh, and why would I have only played less than ten games? That’s because I did a massive game trade-in at my local Gamestop and got Stuntman: Ignition. It may sound weird to the average gamer right now, but I’ve had more fun with that game.
You can start breathing now.
