Really, who can resit a good ear cleaning? I know I can’t.
I’d considered doing today’s strip on the new vs. used games debate that has ignited recently, but decided the guys over at Penny Arcade really have got a handle on it. No need for the amateur to try and take over for the pros.
Basically, if you care, my feelings are this: 1) The price difference is not enough to convince me to buy used. If I buy something used, I expect it to be much, much cheaper. 2) I’ve seen how a lot of people treat their games. I don’t know where that used game has been or how it has been treated. 3) I think you should get something extra for buying the game new (ie. extra maps, etc), BUT that thing should not give you an unfair advantage (ie. better weapons, etc.)
Today begins the first of (at least) 11 weeks where my wife and I are usually not on the same page. It’s the start of high school football. I love football and this time of the year is one of the small perks of my job. My wife is just annoyed that I’m gone pretty much all day Friday. Oh well, it’s going to be fun for me anyway.
