So I went to Best Buy to grab some of those $10 games, I showed up 15 minutes after they opened, and already there was 4 other dudes cruising the PS3 isle.  They all had at least 3 games each, all with that beautiful little yellow sticker on them.  One kid had like 8 games.  But I'm really only looking for 4 in particular; Bourne Conspiracy, Lost Planet, Pure, Quantum of Solace.  None of them are there.  I don't even see spots for them.  The isle is pretty weak overall, not much of a selection.  One dude had Bourne, I ask where he found it, he said "right there, it was the only one."  I grumble something about them having 30 copies of Blitz The League II, and walk away.

There's another Best Buy on the other side of town, so I put the pedal to the metal and cruise over there, driving aggressively enough to make Jason Bourne proud.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this east side Best Buy has literally double the amount of games, and lo-and-behold, they have 3 out of the 4 of the games I'm looking for (they didn't have Pure).   An employee asks me if I was finding everything alright, and I ask him "did you know that your store owns the other one as far as games are concerned?"  He seems surprised, but not too interested, so I head up to the checkout, wearing my shit-eating grin that I've got some new video games for awhile.

Yeah, I went to my local Best Buy this morning and they had all of the $10 games in a bin, so you just had to root through that. I ended up getting three of the games that I was looking for.

Quantum of Solace (with a sweet 007 tshirt included)
WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008
and Rock Revolution.

My Best Buy didn't have Pure either, and I was hoping I could have picked up Quake Wars too, but the sale applies to their online store as well so you can still get some of the games that way if you couldn't find it in store. They don't have Pure listed there though, but I ended up getting Quake Wars that way.

Most of the games listed my best buy had in stock. But unfortunetly for me, I saw the very last Devil May Cry4 and Pure taken from right infront of me. Oh wells, I still bought 5 games.


Doctor Who?

Free stuff time!

Firstly, If you've played City of Heroes or Villians, they've reactivated your account until Sunday.  Head back to Paragon City, heroes!

Secondly, this Friday, at 12:01 GMT, Steam is offering a 24 hour free trial  of Left 4 Dead. Load it up in Steam  right now and play for free on Friday.

Finally, XBox Live is going Gold! For this weekend, all XBL members get upgraded to Gold Status. Then on Monday, you'll be back to Silver, but for the weekend, you're free to do all of that fun online stuff.

Ooh, if only my computer could handle L4D.

As for XBL Gold, I may use it to download a certain demo that's only been available to Gold members, but other than that . . . don't really care. Not even sure my bare bones DSL could handle online play.

Target is selling Dead Space for $29.99 for PS3 or 360

I don't think this is a sale, they've just moved it to the value section. I haven't gotten around to playing this game yet but I heard good things, I'm going to pick it up this weekend.

It's fantastic, and for that price, a no brainer.

I just found out from him that he has it. Damn it, any other suggestions for a ps3 game for him? Sorry to derail the topic.
