GAME messes up = WIN

One of my 360 Mii ripoffs lol.

(I like these avatars better cos you get to pick the outfit, and they’re not SD/Chibi(my little bro made his look like Neil Patrick Harris, which is epic.). Bear in mind, I don’t wear glasses, they just went well with that outfit lol. I always wanted to wear glasses when I was younger though, thought they were cool. I remember lying about a house number across the road being fuzzy just to go to the optitions lol.)

Today, after we saw Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince(will talk bout that tomorrow), my little brother went to see about a hard drive for the 360, since we only had a 512mb Memory unit… He wanted the 60GB starter pack, with the headset(which he probably wouldn’t use), an ethernet cable(which we have many of already), a 3 month gold membership(which I already have lol). When we found a place that had them in stock, in GAME for £59.99. We bought it, were handed the bag, or at least my little bro was, he didn’t check the bag, which, in hindsight, woulda been a good idea. But in some ways, its better he didn’t.

Viva Pinata

June 15, 2009

Viva-pinata

I first played Viva Pinata a few years ago around a friends house. Spent hours on it, addicted from the onset. I really shouldn’t be let near addictive sim games… Harvest Moon… Animal Crossing… those kinds…. I waste hours and hours on these types of games, and buy multiple versions of whats basically the same game with a few added bits. Sometimes not even extras… I bought Viva Pinata on the PC when I first got addicted, but alas, no 360, so had to settle for the PC version, still awesome. Tho on my slow-ass computer it wouldn’t run nicely… much like Sims 2 wouldn’t on my old laptop… runs ok on this one. (Thats another game I shouldnt have been let near…)

DSi? More like DS-whyyyyyy???

April 15, 2009
Only 26 here, but he has at least 28. (He was using Pearl and Platinum at the time I took this.)

My brother went out today, while I was still in bed… and he bought the Nintendo DSi, which was released earlier this month, on the 3rd(before america!! Mwhahahaha, I love it when we get stuff before other places, it so rarely happens…). He spent-wait for it-£150 on it! I didn’t think that could be the retail price… but it is… only £20 less than the RP of a 60GB 360!!! Only £10 less if you get it from Amazon!!! Just £10-20 more and he could have bought his own 360! Instead of putting up with that cruddy little Arcade 360 that can’t even play old Xbox games…. I can’t believe they paid £120 for that….instead of saving a bit more and getting the 60gb version…or even the Elite!!! I can’t believe, after all my advice about why he shouldn’t buy it… he still went and bought it… heck…. a PSP would be a better idea… since he’ll be bored of the camera function soon… and thats really the only thing that sets it apart from the PSP(I mean other than having 2 screens). They both play music after all… both have memory card slots now… can the DSi play videos yet? Still…. waste of money… He won’t even admit it.. least I’ll admit it…

Its like he has 28-or so DS games and only plays like 2 of them… I bet he wouldn’t even notice if I nabbed Mario Kart… over £800’s worth of games he doesn’t play… I have a strong urge to sell them… I wouldn’t though… I’d be pissed if someone sold my games and I went back to look for one and found it missing…

And to finish…. a nice pick of Serio from my collection of To Heart figures. There wasn’t enough of her in the first series of To Heart…

I have Serio and Multi. Very chuffed. I need Kotone, Aoi..and some others...Lemmy etc...

I hope to someday soon complete the set of To Heart figures. I have 4 so far. There can’t be *loads* more lol. I checked how many before but have since forgotten…gah…. Anyways, tis all for now. Might post all the pics I took of the To Heart girls sometime soon. The majority of the pics are of Tomoko since she was my first To Heart girl, and an underated figure.

How many figures will a 360 Elite buy?

One of my biggest dilemma’s over the past year or so is, whether or not I should buy an Xbox 360. xJaymanx suggested I make a post about it, so I did, hehe. When I get one, it’ll almost definately be an Elite… So about £230 for the console itself, not in a bundle, in a bundle deal it would probably be like… £245, £260… I’m not worried about the games that would come in the bundle, since they’d be crap ones, probably sport games that the shop couldn’t shift on their own. I’m going by Gamestation, Amazon, GAME prices, since they’d be the places I’d most likely get one. So… onto the question… how many figures that I really want, not impulse buys, can a 360 Elite buy?

Pec Champo/Baek Changpo Figure – GET!!(soon ;D)

August 11, 2008

My Pec Champo w figure was shipped today, this morning actually, quite a few hours ago. Which means it should be a good way on its way. The last figure (GSC Lucy M) I ordered from Up1 came very swiftly the day after shipping. So I’m hoping Champo will achieve the same quick delivery time. Anyways, a little more history on Pec Champo now, or Baek Changpo, whichever you prefer, I prefer Pec Champo myself. She comes from the second of the Senko no Ronde games on the XBOX 360, which I didnt realise untill today. I just thought she came from this illustration.

Tis mighty pink is it not? Pinker than the actual figure.

I’ve seen various news items and reviews of this figure, finally the review on Happy Soda by Super Rats finally pursuaded me to get out there and buy it. Luckily for me it was on a site accessable to me! And at a price I was willing to buy it at, £32 without shipping, will know price of shipping when it gets here. Lucy’s shipping was cheaper than the site said too, and the box for Champo shouldn’t be too large.

Figure Costs – (HOLYOMFGCRAP) – How much have you spent?

July 20, 2008

I took the time today, to count up just how much I’d spent on figures. I did the bigger PVC figures first. Getting a job had really impacted how much I spend, which in some ways I’m glad on, in others, I could cry at how much I’ve spent on plastic girls (and a couple of boys) alone… I converted the totals into Yen and American Dollars aswell for those who don’t know Pounds very well. I counted 24 figures as ‘big’ This included Pocco and my Figma Haruhi, cos they cost more the prices of big figures anyways, even if they are smaller. (Although Haruhi standing next to Konomi-chan, theres only bout an inch in it, and Pocco is the same height roundabouts.)
