Is your bank account big enough for your game cravings?
Earlier this week we pre-ordered Gears of War 3. Interestingly enough this is the first time I’ve ever pre-ordered a game. Matter of fact, this is the first “fresh off the shelf” game I’ve gotten… or am getting… since Silent Hill Shattered Memories.
What’s enthralling is knowing we’re in the midst of a mass release of great games. On the flip side, my soul is cringing at the thought of how my wallet will look post game purchase. What’s a lady supposed to do in this situation? I might need to take up a second job… *Cough*Freelancewriter*Cough*
My style is usually to buy a pre-owned game a good year plus after it’s release. That explains why I’m staggering my way through Oblivion just now! I feel like I’m wearing last year’s fall fashion in video games. Unhappy face!
Zombies, what are you doing to finance your video game cravings? Are you buying? Renting? Please share your tips!

Call in during the show to share your thoughts or chat with us on the Gamer In Thought, Armed Gamer, and MB Radio Facebook pages.
On we game!
P.S. Sorry for the lull in witty commentary this post, zombies. Lady ARod be tired! I’ll make sure to double the wit next post.
