I went to Circuit City earlier today to pick up a new phone. I would not have a landline (or new a new phone) except that our alarm system requires ones, but I digress.
I also picked up the kids a couple of DS games – Pokemon Explorers of Time (I think … Good Lord, there are so many versions I cannot keep up) and Super Mario Brothers. We already had Super Mario Brothers, but the dog got a hold of it, so a new game was in order. We always get the kids some sort of end of year, going to the beach present, and the kids pretty much expect video game happiness. The good news is the new games will keep the kids quiet on the way to the beach, which is a small price to pay.
I told myself I was going to hold off on GTA IV, but once I saw the game, I figured what the heck, no time like the present. It is not like it is going to be on sale between now and Christmas. The only problem is that this one requires night gaming. No way I can play a GTA game in front of the kids. I will try to throw up some impressions later tonight or tomorrow morning.
For what it is worth, there were only two copies left of the PS3 version, several copies of the PS3 collectors version, and multiple versions of each for the 360. Does not really indicate anything, but I figured I would throw it out there to see if anything sticks.
