I didn't realize Earthbound went for such an absurd price nowadays.

A good site to use for that sort of thing is this:

http://videogames.pricecharting.com/

Just by using that site, you can see the price of Earthbound has gone from an average of 60 bucks to around 180 the last 5 years. Crazy!

It's stupid how shaky these games are at first despite how much money they make ($500 million in the first day) i personally play on ps3 but we had and are having a horrible start as well just last night my game froze on a loading screen it happens less often since the ps3 patch but before the patch there were just so many problems i could barely connect to the network the first night. Treyarch is great at supporting their games post launch so these things should be fixed soon
Im not asking for a totally different game but you must admit the engine is looking dated. Modern warfare 1 has the same graphics and gameplay as modern warfare 2, as world at war, as black ops etc.

Being a fast paced shooter doesnt mean released the same game 12 months apart year after year. If you look at Halo 4 its better then Halo 3. Uncharted 2 is better then Uncharted 1. MGS4 is better then MGS3 which was better then MGS2. Mario wii is better then Mario64 which was better then the old mario etc.

All of these super famous successfull brands manage to stay true to the core experience while adding to it. Seems like COD always has people making excuses. It doesnt help that I had the 2011 version of COD on and my friend who owns the new one thought they were the same game for a split second.

I like COD and think its fun but not worth 60 dollars every 12 months.


Weird that I havent had my xbox freeze or anything at all. Between me and my family whether its watching or gaming its pretty much always in use. Hopefully microsoft fixes the problem for those having it

So today my hard drive on my xbox has stopped working and a suggestion that I got from Microsoft was to reformat it which would mean loosing over 100 GB of stuff or find a local game store that will transfer my stuff.

So does anybody know of any local game stores that might be able to help me?

Check out Edmonton Mods. Got my Xbox fixed there. Pretty decent prices and the owner is a really good guy.

This is a good a place as anywhere to gripe a bit about my Christmas present NHL 13 for xbox 360. I like the game overall but there are a few things I wish they would tweek or change. The thing I am most mad at is this year they took out a lot of the legends. I don't know about you guys but I spend most of my time making all of the legendary retired players and making every team superstar caliber. How many **** players are there in the free agent list that no one ever uses? Why can't we have a stack of legendary hockey players instead of **** guys. Second in NHL 12 you could nail the goalie after the whistle and knock his helmet off. It was alot of fun and funny as hell. Now the ref blows the whistle right away and you can only hit the goalie on rare occasion. They still have not removed the annoying retired jersey thing. If I want to make Bobby Orr with number 4 I should be allowed too. There is a button to turn retired jerseys off or on but whatever one you have it set on it still changes a retired jersey number to something else. Why even put it in there is it doesn't do anything. At one point they had a way to change how long you want the season to be on older versions of the game but this feature id gone now which is annoying. It also would be nice if you could change the age of cpu created players. This way you could take guys that have been drafted or just about to be drafted and put them on NHL teams which alot of times you can't. Lastly more epic endings when you win would be nice. On the old NHLs when you won there would be a cool montage of your players playing and holding the stanley cup with a song playing. It made your win seem epic. There is no montage anymore and the cut scenes now of your guys holding the cup is very short and lacks epicness. When you play the ea world cup as different nations it's even worse. On the old NHL games you actually saw your flag being raised and the national anthem which was awesome. Then they changed it to a shaky cam zooming in on a flag which was annoying but better than nothing. Now they just pan to the roof of the arena with no flag(s) at all. What? It sucks. It may seem like I hate the game I don't I like it and play it all the time I just wish they would tweek a few things and make a good game into a great game.

I paid $300 for my copy of Earthbound totally complete and in mint condition about 7 years ago. It is easily in my top 3 games of all time, so I dont regret the price. But, every time I think about it it hurts a little bit.

Playing an emulated version is nothing like playing the original, on the proper console, with the proper controller. I've played emulated versions of Earthbound, and enjoyed it, but I still fire up my original copy once every few years and give it a run.

Just the cart.

If I could get the cart + book for that much, it would be a fleecing of Pronger/Brewer proportions lol

So the most under rated and under sold games are Deus Ex human revolution and Sleeping dogs.


Deus ex has awesome sci fi, good graphics, amazing gameplay. You can play stealth, guns blazing, try to out talk people. Its almost half shooter half RPG.

Sleeping Dogs is GTA 4 but better. Alot has changed since Niko and 2007. The driving is different then GTA (worse imo) but everything else is better. The fighting system is awesome because its martial arts and there are counters, heavy strikes, grapples etc. Lots of collectables, cop and triad missions etc. Its set in hong kong and the asian influence is really rubbing off on me. Been watching old martial arts movies lately because ive been sucked into this world so much.

Best of all its 19.99 so anyone with a spare 20 should totally get it
