Gamefly has been a godsend for me in the last few months. I've gotten to play a lot of games from this generation that I never would've actually bought but was always interested in. I think at this stage in the console cycle, Gamefly is a total no brainer. There's almost 8 years of games in the library of both PS3 and Xbox 360, and if you're just picking up one of those systems for the first time it is ideal. I have the 2 games at a time subscription and for a year it costs about as much as buying 4 new games. It's nice this way because I can have a multiplayer game that I play with my friends checked out for a few months until we start playing something new, and then the other game cycles out with great single player games that I play when my friends aren't around.
As far as the next gen goes, it's kind of a toss up for me. Both systems seems perfectly adequate now that Microsoft reversed their stupid used games policy, so the sole deciding factor for me will be what my friends and I agree to get so we can play online together. In any case, both consoles will have Destiny on them, and that's what I'm looking for to most in gaming in the next 12 months.
I just beat The Legend of Zelda for the first time.
I've been seeing way too much talk of some amazing classic games around the internet lately. Sometime very soon I'm going to dig in my closet and play some old NES or SNES games. I've still got my whole collection of all of those from growing up. Thankfully, I never traded in games to get new ones otherwise I wouldn't have this awesome collection of memories from my childhood.
I wasn't too excited about the game before that trailer, but right after I saw that video I put the game in my gamefly queue so as to reserve myself a copy somewhere close to the release date. All of that looks like SO MUCH FUN!
