With Christmas around the corner, I was wondering what you guys would pick as your top 5 games to receive this holiday season.
Stick with games released recently, or games that will be releasing just around the corner.
What would you love to have in your collection this holiday season?

Me, I'd like:

1. God of War III (zomg!)
2. Uncharted 2 (fall of 09 is sooo far away T.T)
3. NCAA 09
4. Gears 2
5. Fable II DLC (ugh...)

I think this stems from the new "trend" to buy only products Made in the U.S.A. (here in the states).
Think about it.. I work at QVC taking orders, and have had people call in and cancel orders because they're made in foreign countries.

Could this new wave of hell being unleashed on the PS3 be due to the fact that it's made in Japan, and the 360 is made in the states?

But this still doesn't completely work because the Wii is from Nintendo, and thus from Japan... I am just lost by all this insanity...

I love my ps3 and the last thing I think is that it's a sinking ship or failing. Yes the marketing has been terrible, but it's a great system... I fear for it's sake.

On a side note, I saw an ad for it today (the first in a while) which was pretty intriguing.

Maybe they're taking steps to correct their past mistakes?

What do you guys think?

Because the grass tickled his balls.

Anyway, haha.

I'm sitting here working on a painstaking Christmas gag-gift, and thought i'd blog about it.
Basically, as a joke two years ago, I got my sister's fiance the "hit" single from David Hasslehoff, Jump in my Car (watch the video on YouTube, pure lyrical genius...).

Anyway, for the last two years, we've exchanged Hasslehoff gifts as a joke
This year, however, I have the end-all gift.

I am designing a picture of half of a heart and then Hasslehoff's face (from his Knight Rider days).
Above it, it will say "This Hoff of my heart belongs to David..."

I can't decide, however, whether to put it on a shirt, boxers, or shorts.

What do you guys think?
The image is coming along quite well, and should be done soon.

I got the Metal gear Solid 4 demo from my friend (under the employ of gamestop, woot)
and uhm.. I've gotta say it's badassery. When I get more time to sit down and critique it, I'll definitely do so.

indeed. the time has come for me to venture forth and procure a ps3! after accumulating approx $400 from my birthday last week, i am going to set out and buy the 60gb model tomorrow. what a way to commemorate columbus and all his exploratory designs! =D

but yes, i am definitely picking up resistance and prolly a copy of VF5 and/or ncaa08. any other recommendations?

So today's my birthday, and i turned 21! woohoo!

but yeah, dilemma.
I am still on the fence about getting a ps3 now or waiting (obviously i'm going to see what's announced on october 12th, hopefully a long-awaited price drop)

i asked for gift cards for my birthday so my friends/family would pay for it indirectly. so far i've got $100 from my parents. no one else took the bait lol. but i still have friends to go, so we'll see where that takes me.
