PS3 camper gives up right to ever own PS3 for free $7500 PC from PC Gamer

The staff of PC Gamer magazine gave away a $7500 Falcon Northwest rig to one of the first people in line at the Sony Metreon camping for a PS3. The winner stepped out of line, cut his wristband, and signed a contract saying he could never buy or own a PS3.

Congratulation’s are in order for this young man, because we now know how much of an idiot he is for doing this. Clearly I understand why he did what he did, but I wonder if he truly understands what he just did to himself. Logically there’s know way for PC Gamer to play watch dog over him to make sure he never purchases a PS3. Maybe that’s why he did it. Either way, if he keeps up his end of the deal he’ll be kicking himself in the near future for not having the for site to see that the PC he is inheriting is going to be old news down the line. At the same time is when Metal Gear Solid 4 or Heavenly Sword and so on are going to be bracing the PS3 and not the PC.

Nothing to me would have made me make this poor choice.Then again, more power to him. There isn’t exactly anything on the PS3 worth the money right now anyway. I’d be pretty happy with the choice considering I’ve been having a ton of fun with Gears of War chain sawing people in half, and we all know that’ll never show up on the PS3.

Man puts kid in hospital over Gears Of War

According to reports currently floating around the internet, a 15-year-old boy was attacked and actually put into hospital by a 36-year-old man who was ticked off in a queue outside a branch of Gamestop in Detroit.

I find this to be very disturbing. Especially when it happened pretty darn close to where I’m located. Who in there right mind would do something like that over a video game? I was recently screwed by Gamestop like many others who pre-ordered the game to make sure we’d get it this past Tuesday to only have to wait until Thursday. I guess I should have gone down there to beat the living snot out of the clerks for not having my game.

To have your priorities this screwed up is nothing short of amazing,or better yet creepy. Yes, I’m a so-called hardcore gamer. Probably to hardcore some times, but not anywhere to this extreme. I kind of wish I was standing in that line just so I could show that ass-hole what he has coming to him. Never less, Gears of War is fantastic. Maybe he should have beaten him up for this game. “No wait, what am I saying”.

Gamestop can kiss my ASS! Atleast until tomorrow.

First off I’d like to say that I don’t like to or plan on ranting about certain companies or anything else unless it’s completely warranted. Unfortunately this is one of those times where I feel it is.

Gamestop can KISS MY ASS! Why? I won’t be able to play Gears of War until November 9th. What the hell is that shit? I know European 360 owners won’t get the game until next week, but hey I don’t live in Europe.

After giving up my soul to pre-order Gears of war in the first place, I called my local Gamestop where I called yesterday to only find out that I’d have to what until today. What’s the problem you might say? It’s today and I still don’t have Gears of War. I call again today to only find out that there has been a shipping error. I won’t be getting Gears until Thursday. The anger inside of me right now is unexplainable right now. Then again you might say go get it elsewhere. I thought of that to. I have called every other retailer with in reason that’s local to me to only find out that they wont have the game until tomorrow also. FUCK! The anticipation is killing me, along with all of the retailers.

To make things worse, every time I sign into Xbox Live I see two people on my friends list playing the game already. Since Tuesday I’ve been seeing Gears of war on my 360 to only not be able to play it. How maddening. One of the people on my friends list Thrills Killa has had the game for the last few days. I hope he knows how lucky he is. Put me on the PR list Microsoft. If I get your games in a timely manner I have no problem pimping it if it’s warranted, of course.

Update: Check out this post over at www.younewb.com for more. It looks like I’m not the only one ticked off.

Gamespot gives Gears of War a Spectacular 9.6

Gears of War boxart

says all: Gears of War is an outstanding technical achievement, but in addition to looking and sounding amazing, it’s a seriously awesome action game.

I can’t say I’m surprised by this at all. I have been waiting for this game for a very, very, very long time. I wouldn’t accept anything less. The surprising thing to me is that 1up gave it a 10. Now that’s a shock.

Exclusives for 360, Wii, and PS3

This is a list of the exclusive titles for the next gen consoles.

To be honest Gears of War is the only game I’m hoping live’s up to the hype for any of the platforms. Cliffy B better have a smash hit on his hands since I already paid for it in full. Please don’t let my down. Not that I fall for all of the hype for any game. I aready got ass raped with Perfect Dark Zero. As much as I love Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, GOW just might be the game to get me to ease off on GRAW for a while.

Gears of War is coming! (Emergence Day 2006)

I originally saw this over on K1lla’s Xbox Domain. I’ve seen all of the footage in this video before, but not in this compilation. I love the second song. Nice and light. I can’t remember who it is right now either. It’s going to annoy the hell out of me if I don’t remember who it is to. It makes you feel all so mellow while your killing fool’s left n right and your planet is being destroyed.
