    Yeah, I ordered GTA online so it would come after finals. Temptation is...too much. My Gamertag is Saito Hawkeye, I'm on Halo 3 and I guess I'll be on GTA IV when it arrives. I'd get COD4, but I only play FPS's with friends usually, and it doesn't have split-screen.

    GOT IT!!! I ended up having enough credit at GameStop to get GTA4, the strategy guide (I'll use it since I'm a completionist), and Rock Band for about $60.00!

    All you guys who shared your gamertags can expect an add but not right now as I'll be playing for hours.

    When the phone rings in game you can hear it interfering with the speakers in the car. I could get used to details like this.

    Debating whether or not to get GTA4. I was never a fan of the series (too much walking around trying to find what to do next, poor controls make difficult missions more frustrating), but the reviews on GTA4 look too amazing.

    I shot someone in the head while he was trying to get in a car and escape and he slouched over and his head pressed on the horn and it kept going off. Then I pulled him out and threw him on the ground and took the car.

    May 2-4 is a free TF2 weekend. Just download Steam, pre-load TF2 and you'll be all ready. It's to celebrate the new medic update and Goldrush map. Valve is hands down the best Western dev. So awesome.[​IMG]

    I need to get some of you all on my Steam friends list...

    Brian, no worries, I'd kill you every time you spawned anyways.

    Mauro, my character in Grand Theft Auto Iv is wearing some shitty-ass Russian jeans that he bought for $24.

    I switched to the fatigues at the request of my in-game girlfriend. I still maintain that you should never lower your standards of dressing for a woman, however.

    edit: I just noticed that if you wreck a car too much it will eventually break down and will be unable to turn over, instead of catching fire a la older GTA titles. When you press the acceleration button you hear the engine trying to turn over and Niko will say something like "why won't you start?!"

    I think it is a tragedy that Mario does not have bespoke overalls in Mario kart. By the way, that game is so easy. I have been considering trading my Wii for a 360 but have heard about how many 360's go in for repair and I dont want to deal with that.

    It's not supposed to be hard or challenging. It's supposed to be extremely user-friendly and fun so a lot of people can play it together.
