It takes me 10 minutes to buy and sell a game on ebay, and if the savings is $30, that comes to $180 an hour. Not sure how much you make an hour, but that's real money to me.
Good point, although truth be told for Consuel games the last I got was Monster Hunter 3 U for the Wii U last year, and I just sold my Wii a month ago, it got very little use sadly. I might wind up with another Wii U depending on if the new Metroid comes out any time soon -.-
But I always sell my old Games on eBay. Buying them, I just head into game stop, I've gotten a sufficent amount of coupons with them anyways so it usally works out for me to buy that a way.
But, I only get new games about once every 8 months. And I usually buy about $200 at a time, via Steam or eBay. Actually my last Nintendo DS Spurlge paid for it self when I went to re sell it :D [on eBay]
That said, back to the GAME
I've been playing a LOT OF STARBOUND, which is Space Terria essitanlly
11/10, this was the first game in a LONG time to make me smile. I spent like 3 hours in the giant hole that I dug on my planet. And after having exhasuted all my potions and torchs... meaning I was half dead and Couldn't see a whole lot... I BARELY managed to get out of that hole! I was so happy to see the surface xD, I cracked a big ole smile... the accidently jumped off a cliff and died *face palm*
So if ur a Fan of Metroid Style 16bit Scroller Sand Boxes, this one is very epic.
Also xCom is satisfying, I'm enjoying the "injury" status. In tatics I usually play pretty close to the wire, take as much dmg without losing any one. Nice to see xCom discourages that! That and I dig the explosive maps... always fun to wipe out some aliens by blowing up the car they are hiding behind!
