Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

well, I'm thinking about with tax. I dunno how that works down there, but up here 50 x .13 = 6.5 + 50 = $56.5

I round up.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Here in Massachusetts the sales tax is 6.25%

So it's more like 50 x .0625 = 3.13 + 50
= $53.13

Of course, since I don't have a MotionPlus unit, there's that to be accounted for.

So Skyward Sword could potentially be more expensive anyway.

EDIT: Or to avoid tax altogether I can just drive ten minutes to New Hampshire and buy it there. It's not really evading tax at all because the stores there potentially are the closest places for me to shop. Then again there's gas to take into account.

This is why so many of my games are used games, like half my library of GameCube and Wii games cost under $5 each

Oh right. I forgot that tax isn't including in the price of anything in the US.

Here the $100 already includes the 10% GST.

Not that ninety bucks without tax is any bargain either.

But yeah, the only thing here off the top of my head that includes tax in the listed price is gasoline.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

So far I'm looking at Skyward Sword, Uncharted 3, ACR, Journey, and Skyrim.

I'm sort of getting into Oblivion now, so I may not want to miss Skyrim. Luckily, me and my brother will split the bill, but November will drain my wallet a bit.
Not sure if Journey will be up for download this November, though. It'd have a nicer price tag for sure.

EDIT: BTW, Deus Ex. Not sure what to think about that game, but it's tempting.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

If you're just now getting into Oblivion, you can hold off on Skyrim for a good three years.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Skyrim is going to take over my life. It'll make me feel like walking out in the wild, and just attacking stuff

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

I've started replaying Oblivion in anticipation.


I guess I would never meet Mehrunes Dagon ever again due to Skyrim.


Also, this is the effect of a spell that increases people's disposition to you to 100%:

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Yeah, I am not sure what my graphic settings are. I think they are high, but they might not be cos the sliders for the options screen are so confusing.

I am also using a mod called Crowded Cities that adds a load of NPCs to the towns. With strange armour combinations.




Oh, things may look different cos I am using a mod that changes the HUD slightly.

You're probably right. I've given Oblivion plenty of chances but started to appreciate it this summer. Got a feeling that I'm kind of looking forward to Skyrim not having a lot of what I hate about Oblivion or something along those lines.
Skyrim's definitely my least prioritized game for November, but my brother's going to end up getting it so I might as well switch to that during the holiday.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

So I bought a copy of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Didn't happen to notice a little thing on the box that said "Integrated Intel Graphics not supported."

So I guess I'll have to miss out on the allegedly scariest game ever made.

On the bright side, the full game of Bastion is indeed quite a bit more pimpin' than the demo.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

The only games I pre-ordered for the month of November are Uncharted 3 (the Collector's Edition) and Skyward Sword (hoping there is some sort of pre-order bonus).

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

If you start a sentence with "The only games I pre-ordered for the month" then you probably need to cut back some. I mean, buying games in a month is one thing but pre-ordering is something that should be reserved for a kind of absolute faith in a product that comes maybe once a year.

Dude it's only two games.

Unlike my friend on the other hand, he has ♥♥♥♥ing MW3, Skyward Sword, Skyrim, and like 3 other games pre-ordered. Now that is overkill.

The other day he said that he wants to preorder Uncharted 3 and I was like "dude you haven't even played 1 or 2" but he only wants it for the collectibles in the CE.

*facepalm*

MEANWHILE on the other end of the spectrum I am just scrounging up enough money to even consider preordering Uncharted 3 (regular edition) so. Yeah. That kind of pisses me off when someone orders it for just collectables and hasn't even played the amazing experience of the first two. (particularly Among Thieves)

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Why does everyone talk like Among Thieves was the better of the two? I played them both and the first was way more fun.

Yeah it irritates me as well. More so because I invited him to come to Australia with me, and he said no because he doesn't have the money. Well ♥♥♥♥ man, this is why you don't have any money, because you're burning it left, right, and center.

Uncharted Drake's Fortune was great. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The story in Among Thieves intrigued me a bit more than the first one, and the setting was so dynamic.
