I finally got Dragon Quest IX! I picked up my paycheck at work (finally one that was over $100), then dropped by GameStop. But as I was waiting in line to get it, I saw something truly amazing. GameStop is having this Power Sale going on, where select used games are 50% off! I saw God of War 3 for $29.99! I asked the guy at the front how long the Power Sale was going on for, and he said 2-3 more weeks, and to expect GoW3 to be in there for that time. Apparently, it didn't sell as much as was anticipated.
My reasoning for not getting GoW3 you may ask? Well, I don't want it as badly as I want some other games, such as DQ9. And I'm guessing that DQ9 will last me until Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep comes out on Sep. 7. Hopefully that will last me until Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood comes out, which I still haven't pre-ordered. And if I can't get Brotherhood, THAT'S when I'll get GoW3. The price would've dropped even more, and I wouldn't have bought any games for a while. And if I can't get either, by that time Christmas is just around the corner! It's so crazy it might just work! MWAHAHAHA!!!...Ahem.
Now I just have to hide the fact from my mom that I bought a new game. She was yelling at me yesterday because I wanted to My car was in for its routine inspection, and I texted her asking when my car was going to be back. That's ALL I texted her. She called me at lunch and asked, "Why, what do you want to buy?" I of course said, "Nothing." She knows me all to well
In other news, I still haven't been able to finish Special Ops in MW2. I'm just 8 missions away. The problem is that the servers for it really suck (LAG CITY), and I can never find a partner. However, I would like to thank BboyCG013 and Megaman5364 for helping me get through some of the missions and earn some trophies! Thanks guys!
So, I'm off to play some DQ9! What games have you guys picked up lately?
