Haha, that was pretty fun. Especially the epic ubercharge rush taking down a bunch of sentries in one go and getting the win. Nice work. I don't play TF2 very often though so I completely suck at any class other than Medic or Pyro and even then I wouldn't consider myself any good.

I don't have money to burn.


This is the part where the car analogy falls apart. I know one (1) person who buys consumer electronics with the thought of using them for a while and reselling them. Like I said, most people I know run their consumer electronics to the ground. Sure they might have a resell value in a few years, but that is hardly a factor in why they bought them.

Yeah, true, I never resell anything. Hell, I've still got the same TV I've had since I was ten, with no remote, and the power button doesn't work(don't worry, I've got a system for turning it on/off without unplugging it).

You know, a friend brought this up to me today. He said that my background leads me to use things beyond what most people would. Heck my grandfather taught me how to fix a lawnmower so I could grab them out of peoples trash, fix them, and resell them. So maybe I am very skewed in that aspect.

I dont live in the crux of hip, I live in the south. The fancy new device is overwhelmed by the practicality of it. Meaning Ill buy a contractor cellphone over an Iphone/Droid/Blackberry, since I want it to last five years and go through hell with me. Since we live in different worlds perhaps resale is more important in yours, and I apologize if I over stepped.

It looks like this week is going to be full of EA related deals.

The first deal is:

$15 for Crysis, $10 for Crysis: Warhead, or $20 for both.
