Just got back from vacationing in Myrtle Beach so I'm a little behind on getting stuff organized but here's a pic of the crap I got the week before we left.



The Retron3 being the biggest buy of that week. Be a few days before I get to try it cause of work though.

A classic controller for the Wii.

DS games for the kid..

Everything else was just .. meh.. cept for Soldiers of Fortune.. game kicks ass

Oh.. and on a shitty note, the 55" RCA LCD, (posted in here several pages back), I bought 6 weeks ago went out on me and I had to waste 2 hours returning it the morning we left for the beach. Got my money back and am gonna spend the extra $300 to get a Samsung instead.

A little different for most Americans that I know ; but I respect that even more. Knife is a delicate weapon, imo.

I used to but don't anymore for a few reasons actually..

1) Compatibility of older games I like. Seems harder and harder to keep older games running with each new OS, despite trying to run in the proper modes. Civil War Generals 2 for instance, I can't get to play on any of my systems running XP+ without constant crashes.

There's several games like above that simply get errors or close out during gameplay and it pisses me off. I don't want to have multiple OS's installed nor keep dedicated towers hooked up to play certain gen titles.

2) I mostly played PC games while traveling over the past 15 years but since my work doesn't require travel anymore and I always preferred playing on the TV when I was home anyway, I never have a reason to play on it since most titles are multiplat these days. If I was still big into MMORPGS or RTS gaming then I guess I still would, but I'm not.

3) Maintenance ... got tired of upgrading video cards, cpus and memory to play the lastest/greatest titles

4) Almost all my friends and family now game with me on PSN/XBL so the online appeal that was once the PC's greatest feature, for me, no longer matters.

I stopped collecting PC games around 2005

Here's the TV I ordered today.. won't be here for 5-9 days though

Pisses me off a bit there's not even 1 s-video input but oh well.

Ok, it makes the panning in films look like everything is a soap opera.
