Community! Help me make a decision plz!

Okay so here's the deal. If you have read any of my comments regarding anything about buying anything (or more specifically the evil PSPgo) then you would know that I have a very teeny tiny income. It's pretty ridiculous and can barely sustain a healthy gaming diet. Plus, I won't lie, about 70% of that goes toward Rock Band DLC. Don't hate.

But Rocktober is looking like a good month for me. Brutal Legend, the Abbey Road DLC, and DJ Hero are all looking well within my budget. But of course typical me can't save up money without toying with temptation and my biggest stumbling block on the road to fiscal prosperity has been and always will be Craigslist.

Recently while looking for a DS with which to Scribblenaut all over I stumbled upon a chap selling a 20GB PS3 (the model with BC) for $150. Fuckin' sweet. I was planning on getting a white Slim with controllers Q1 next year from Colorware but I'd be lying if I didn't say it would kick ass to have one of the few PS3s with BC. It's not like it's that big of a deal for me, not at all, but it would certainly kick ass and buying it for $150 and then sending it to Colorware to get it painted would be WAY cheaper than the $800 for a white Slim with four white controllers that I was gonna buy before (DON'T CRITICIZE MY SPENDING!).

Problem is if I buy this thing than there goes my entire Rocktober which wold suck for obvious reasons. I'm finally making enough to buy games day one and it rocks but dude that PS3 is looking mighty sweet.

Should I sacrifice my Rocktober dreams for a PS3 or just hope another one comes along and, ya know, quit spazzing out?

Why everyone should at least lurk on the DToid forums.

Things people say I like:

I can't fully enjoy the PS3 without an ample supply of hookers and blow. How does that figure into your Reaganomics? - MegaStryker

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. - Alice from Alice in Wonderland; the greatest book ever written

Best thing about those cards are how bad the pun/product writing is. "I only have Snake Eyes for you." "You've Duke'd it out with my heart and now I'm yours to command." "I have a Cobra Commander in my pants." - sheppy

How to read a review without being pissed off:
1. Decide prematurely whether the game is balls, or the second coming of flying spaghetti monster.
2. Go to www.metacritic.com and search for the game.
3. If flying spaghetti monster, click on first link. If balls, scroll to the end and click on the last link.
4. You should now be sitting and staring at a review you agree with.
5. Complement reviewer on such a well thought out and non biased review.

That's because WWI was a pretty low-budget project, it was mostly about the story of soldiers in trenches and lay-low tactics, the sequel WWII, was really the bomb, with millions of dollars invested on it and top notch action sequences. - adrianboy

I think booze is a pretty cool guy. eh keeps me from doing the recaps on time and doesn't afraid of anything. - Pendleton21

Everyone else tolerates it because you're an attractive woman, I find that quite shallow. - Mousse420

*NOTE: I like that quote because at least I know if everyone is going to assume I'm female at least I'm attractive. Call me.

I was able to cause my child to fall into a well of depression after shattering his tailbone by horribly failing the see-saw QTE at the park three times in a row. Then I tried to cheer him up by buying him candy, but picked the one flavor he didn't like. It was like reliving my own childhood.

Xzyliac: @punisher898 Score! I wonder if Cyndi Lauper and Lady GaGa hang out together. #ponders
punisher898 (aka Occams Electric Toothbrush): @Xzyliac: I bet if they do its like the best Folger's coffee commercial ever.

That's awesome. Hollywood writers are the best! I had one make me an iced latte the other day. It was totally adequate!

Uno just brings out the animals in all of us. It's just too sexy of a game.

Xzyliac, shut up, you\'re not cool.
-Fear No Darkness

*NOTE: I would like to note that later on I explained myself to Fear No Darkness and he totally sent me an apologetic PM. He's a classy fella whom I'd love to share a drink with sometime.

If you've never had promiscuous thoughts about a Dreamcast then you're not a gamer.
