SteamID & XBL Gamertag: ScottyGrayskull


Hello! <3

Bit about me. I've been a gamer for the most of my life. When I was seven and waiting for my parents to pick me up from piano lessons, the teacher's two sons showed me Super Mario Bros 2. Needless to say I never learned to play the piano very well...

I've flip-flopped several times between consoles and PCs. I generally love non-generic FPS games, puzzlers (Tetris is probably my favourite game of all time) and platformers of all shapes and sizes. I tolerate RPGs, but usually don't bother because I just don't have the time to invest in them.

I'm one of those freaks that regard FF7 and Ocarina of Time as merely average. That might be partly because I'm biased against the first round of 3D games that generally looked and played like crap compared to the 2d games at the time (during that generation I was a PC gamer, where they actually could do decent 3D at the time). By no means are they bad games, but plenty of games have done just as well and actually looked good in the process.

Yeah yeah, graphics aren't everything. But as important as gameplay is, looks still matter. It doesn't have to be the best looking thing around, but it at least has to be passable.

I tried to be a collector for awhile, but realized there was no market where I lived and gave that up. Currently I have an NES, SNES, GameBoy/GameBoy Colour/GameBoy Advance SP, DS, a 360, and of course my lovely gaming PC. ^_^

Hey everybody! Just thought I'd pass along a few things. First off, as some of you might know, Blockbuster Canada is closing off a third of their stores. To clear out the excess inventory they are having a massive clearance sale. Right now the three stores closing in Vancouver that I've checked are at 70% off EVERYTHING. You want a movie? Done! Brand new game? You betcha! Popcorn or candy? Absolutely! From what I've been told 70% is as high as the discounts will go, and the affected stores will all be closed at the end of next week (June 18th). Pickings are getting slimmer and slimmer but it's definitely worth a look!

Which brings me to the next part of this post: what I just got from one store:

Total cost? $47. Both games are sealed and not previously played. There's even more I saw there that I want (like a new copy of Halo Reach for $18), and will probably check again on, but I think this is enough for now.

PS: I'm back down to two jobs again, with much more stable and efficient working hours. Hopefully this will give me more time to be around here again, both reading cblogs and playing games with all you lovely people. Or at the least stop being a burden on my fellow recappers. :)
