Parts I and II in one big 2.5 hour movie! Awesome Steelbook, even if the cover (and back) art doesn't match the art from the movie as all.

$20

Sweet. It's unfortunate I can't get that steelbook locally and that shipping costs are so high otherwise I would have picked it up for $20 without a doubt despite already having the original versions.

Talking Batman stuff I pre-ordered the collector's edition for Arkham Origins on PS3. I rarely buy collector's editions of games(usually come with overpriced cheap crap anyway) but being a Batman fan this one looks way too cool to pass up:

Can't wait to play another Arkham game. Only 2 more weeks! :p

Got pokemon Y on 3DS and Kingdoms of amalur Reckoning on the PS3.

I sold my 360 version. Same with Fallout new vegas, im trying to move away from Microsoft completely. Just leaving some favorites on the 360 for nostalgia.

Just curious... what do people use all of that space on their phones for? I have a last-gen iPod Touch and I think it is 16GB. I have tons of music and pics on there as well as quite a few apps and I haven't even hit the halfway mark yet as far as storage. A few caveats are that I don't download many games (I have a few, but not a bunch) and I only put music onto my iPod that I want. There's no reason to have full albums when I don't want to listen to most of the songs. That's just plain silly.

The only reason I can think of to go for the bigger models (32GB, 128GB, 3TB etc) are that they usually have the better processors.

Hmm, let me see... (pulls up his data manager on phone)

12GB worth of music (Originally ripped and encoded in FLAC, further encoded into V0 MP3).
2 GB of apps
2 GB of photos and videos (Though in fairness, I should be putting these on my PC)
5 GB of movies (The entire season of Archer, 3 movies...leftover from my NY to CA flight)
6 GB of random software in case I need to do quick tech work at someone's house.

So that's 26 GB right there. Granted I could remove the recorded videos and the movies and free up 7 GB, but I'm still at 19.

My 32GB HTC One was $99 new w/2 year contract. It doesn't come any smaller.

[Edit] Math.

My choices were kind of limited, but I settled for this. I got a decent price for it.

So when I can I mention that you gave me shit for preferring to play my games in HD a few weeks ago and you spoke with such pride that your current display was good enough for your gaming needs?

Yeah but the TV my school gave me was small and looked really crappy, even compared to last year.

A monitor was cheaper than buying a TV.

Also, I was really, really tired of not being able to read the text on half the games I was playing.

And I can hook my laptop up to this, so there were more reasons to get it than just "HD" gaming.

All benefits of a higher resolution, I say! Don't forget this reason too:

Oh shut up.

The text thing is more of a necessity than a benefit since most developers said 'fuck anyone uding sd tvs'.
