When was the last time you bought a game without thinking? I just bought Black Ops for no apparent reason. I just clicked on it to read the description and without thinking I purchased it. When was the last time this happened to you and with which game(s)?

It's been a good while since I've bought a game on impulse. Last game I remember was Mass Effect 2. I was picking up my copy of BF:BC2 at the time and saw ME2 on the shelves. I knew absolutely nothing about the ME series at the time and thought it looked like fun. Turned out to be one of the best games I've played thumb.gif.

I dont know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you, half as well as you deserve.

2nd. If you post this where audio people would see this... you would get clobbered for even mention beats.

My last impulse buy was saints row the third... i have been pretty good at resisting the sales so far.
