This is one of those games that’s been on my perpetual I’ll-get-it-someday list and I have to admit the temptation to purchase it and play it now is very high. If it weren’t for the fact that I’m down to under a $100 in the credit union at the moment I might even give in, but this is a trend I hope does well and leads to others trying it out. I wouldn’t be at all upset to purchase more games in the future when my income is a bit more stable if I could do it for $20 and the time it takes to download and burn my own CD/DVD of it. I’d be all over that like a crack whore on a dealer.

  1. i can see a definite phishing possibility here. oh, and “i’d be all over that like a crack whore on a dealer,” very colourful. wink

  2. Hmm… very nice. Even nicer if I did more PC gaming. 🙁

    As for COR:EFBB, I’ve beaten the Xbox version twice through, and it’s quite entertaining. Very original, too. (unless there’s something I’ve missed all this time)
