A few months ago I was wandering a supermarket during the Christmas season looking for sweet treats and I stumbled upon the games section. I was in awe of certain games that had just been released onto the market and I made an Xbox wishlist, bearing in mind that I don’t even own an Xbox.
So here was the list and a reason:
Ninja Gaiden -Stealthily killing people
Mirror’s Edge – Running along buildings and free falling
Gears of War 2- Loved the music in the ad by DeVotchka
Tomb Raider- Great franchise
Fable 2- Shaping the world as you see fit.
Last week I really, really, really wanted an Xbox since I’ve never owned anything from the franchise mainly since there was way too many buttons and I feared the RRod. I discussed with a sibling about paying half each but that plan was soon stomped upon when I broke my piggy and was under financial constraints with the purchase of new college books for the semester and many other miscellaneous expenses to do with college.
Today I trudged around the city trying to look for the best deal since I thought may be able to stretch but I was then heartily reminded that the Blog Awards is happening in a few weeks. I mentally mourned in despair but my sibling then agreed to pay for the console and one game but the best part is that I get to keep it in my room! I have to be super sweet for the next few months.
I only have a morning lecture tomorrow so I’ll go room hunting for my tutorials for next week, attend lecture, buy console, head home and have an awesome weekend whilst being in a near soulless state because of my awful cold but I’ll get over it! Hope you have a great weekend too.
