I once put together a really ****ing sweet combo in SplinterCell 2 and when I told my buddy, he looked at me like I had two heads. That's when I remembered, oh yeah, video games mean nothing to 75% of the population. You get a sick goal in hockey, people will at least listen, even if they don't follow hockey.
To be fair, I already have a 360 (which I use exclusively for NHL games) and just wanted the PS3 for BluRay. I guess I can live with watching DVDs
BTW, you're in Ottawa, right? What men's league do you play in? I'm not old enough of yet, but I will be in a few years and I've never heard of any men's league here higher than organized pick-up. Do you have to tryout?
You're about a year off... I moved back to Toronto last September
I was supposed to be there until December of 08 but my co-op term was cut short (darn recession). I really miss that place.
