For interested shoppers/gamers...

Looks like today is a Video Games day in the Amazon Gold Box (the deal of the day, the lightning deals, etc.) The main deal is a snowboarding game (like, hold me back), but it looks like some of the lightning ones are going to be Fire Emblem for the DS, and Falloot... er... Fallout 3 (damnit montoya) for the PS3, if anyone actually owns one.

Writer's Block: Gamer's Choice

What is your favorite old-school video game?

Well, depends on how old-school you mean, but since my favorite game ever is Star Ocean: The Second Story, and that's fairly dated by now (it's an original PSX game), then that. Unless by old-school you mean like NES or older, in which case it'd probably be... I dunno... the Dragon Warrior games?

And on a related note... am I the only person in existence who actually *enjoyed* the E.T. game for the Atari 2600? Of course, I was pretty damn young at the time, but still. :/
