I finished Lost Planet 2 campaign, playing co-op with my friend. Sure, the game is good, but there are not enough reasons for me to playing it again, so I decided to sell it. And then there is a case with Resonance of Fate. The earlier plot is confusing, not making any sense. The battle supposed to be hard, but since I already anticipated the difficulty, somewhat it became easy. Having no patience and desire to continue with the game, I traded it too.
I want to trade Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey too, but I forgot to put the cartridge inside the game box when I traded the other games. Maybe I'll sell it later.
At first, I though I want to sell them on eBay, but the process will take a long time and I'm kinda lazy. So I decided to trade the game at Gamestop with the upcoming game which is...
Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker
I never missed any main series of MGS, so I decided to buy this one too. It is on PSP, so I had a doubt at first. But after I read a preview (here) and watched a review (here), my heart was set. So I traded those two games stated earlier and used the credit to pre-order Peace Walker.
The price is $39.99, but since I pre-ordered the Collector's Edition, I need to pay extra $10. Luckily the credit I received for trading the two games covered up the price more than enough~
I don't think I will buy any games this month, that is why I decided to buy the Collector's Edition. Plus, it is $10 less than usual price for console games (but same price as standard Wii games).
Today, I looked up at Gamestop, and I found that the Collector's Edition had been removed from the site. Meaning that I was one of the last person the get the Collector's Edition. Even the free camouflage bandana (pre-order offer) that should come with the game had gone. How lucky I am~
After watching the review, I was worried because he said that playing alone will be hard. Since I have two PSPs right now, I persuaded Shafiq to buy another copy of Peace Walker and I can let him borrow my PSP. Of course, he declined, unless I bought the game for him too (haha). Then, he suggested me to rent the game. After doing a little research, I had come to this
What is GameFly? To make it short, you can rent any set number of games from the company per month. I really wanted to try the service since January this year, but...erm...I can't remember why I didn't. Never mind.
In normal condition, I should pay $24.95/month and I can rent two games at one time. But since I only wanted the Peace Walker, I make full use of the trial version which last for ten days. That should be enough. I will cancel my account before they charge me. Plus, I'll be going back to Malaysia, so I don't think it will worth it if I subscribe to GameFly now. So I will definitely subscribe after I come back here, sharing the payments with Shafiq. Right now, I just want to know how good the service is (and get my Peace Walker for Shafiq)
Going back to Malaysia
I miss the scenery from my room
I will be going back to Malaysia by the end of this month, and I will bring my PS3 along so I won't get bored at home (unlike some of my friends who left me here alone while they went back to Malaysia and complained how bored they were at home. mwahahahaha )
Since I rarely played my Wii, I decided to bring it along too, and left it at my home in Malaysia for my brother and his friends to play. He asked for a bowling game. Wii Sports Resort would be perfect but unfortunately I had sold it to buy Final Fantasy XIII (hahaha). So I will need to buy it again later.
In my inbox, there is an email from Gamestop that is perfect for my situation right now~~~
Trading my Wii
There is a reason for this. To my brother at Malaysia, don't worry. I will still bring a Wii for you~ I will update this tomorrow, ok? Coz' I have something important to do tomorrow before I can make a post for this part.
Sudden increase in offer
Right now, I am really pissed with Gamestop. Yesterday, I traded-in my games since there was an offer of 30% more credit if I trade my games toward any game. It expires at June 6, so I went to Gamestop as earlier as I could. But today, they increase the offer to 50%!!!!!!! ****!
You can look at it here.
That is all for now. There a lot more I want to update, but I will do it after I finish my summer class next week. See ya~
