I've been gaming on computer and console for about fifteen years. Watching the joy that is the video game go from being regarded as a silly, frivolous thing to be enjoyed only by children to a full fledged industry with a wide community of supporters has been pretty freakin' sweet. And we can all look forward to an even more better gaming experience with each passing fiscal quarter. Or maybe each passing holiday season. Whatever.
I'm not sure if this is already common knowledge, but I just got a Guitar Hero III bundle for the ex-bawks from the Red Octane store that included the game, a wireless guitar, a gig bag and a keychain for $99.99. The schwag is kinda cool, but it's still a really good deal without it. The same bundle is listed on Amazon for $150.00 and nearly everything else on teh internetz is comparably pricey. Am I getting excited about getting the shaft, or is this really a good deal? And as a secondary question, am I the only one who gives a sweet, steamy crap about picking up GHIII? Are you all saving your pennies for Rock Band instead?
