New Game


Inferna Firesword

614 views

So I went to Best Buy to return Dragon Age: Origins. (It's not what I'm interested in at the moment), and then I went to look for Halo: Reach so I could buy it. I found it, but I also found a bunch of games I also wanted, among them Transformers: War For Cybertron, Halo 3: ODST, and LEGO Harry Potter.

 

I compare that to being forced to pick either a million dollars or a contract with a really good publishing house.

 

Feel free to yell at me (as Akaku already has), but I picked War For Cybertron. I've heard good things about it, and I don't want to sacrifice all of my money and wait another day for an ethernet cable.

 

(Besides, I've always wanted to design my own Transformer character. =D)

uh, let's be completely honest here. Being an author is not a stable job. You might either get lucky and go mainstream and get rich, or you could become a Van Gogh esque struggling artist. I'm not saying don't try it, but its not a question if you should take the million dollars. With some good investments, you can become insanely rich while living in comfort working on your books and pursuing your publishing contract.

 

and for that matter, most Halo fanboys I know would not recommend ODST

Wow, really?

 

I'm sorry, but it's one thing to read a blog entry and offer your opinions on it, and it's another entirely to bash down the door to said entry and rip it into shreds.

 

First things first, ODST was an amazing game. However, had you read the entry in it's entirety, you'd see Miss Firesword opted not to get it.

 

Back to business, i'm going to say this. There are a lot of people on this site who want to become authors. I'm one of them, and i can tell you now, that between a million bucks and a deal with a publishing company that it would be an insanely hard choice. Regardless of the options, it's a shared dream between Firesword and I alike to become Authors, so regardless of the chances of becoming rich, there's something to be said for the fact that it's a dream.

 

After all, if one takes the million dollars, who says that they'll ever find a publisher that's willing to publish the book again?

 

I'm pretty much one hundred percent sure that she knows the fact that being an author is not a stable job, but who said it would be her only job? I saw no such thing, so please god next time think a little before you make a comment that's primarily stating that one should virtually abandon their dream if a million dollars comes into the picture.

Luls, see ferna, everyone wanted you to get reach. Now when you DO get an ethernet cable, the only person you can play with is me.

 

And maybe Raptor.... but that's debatable =D

I would think Reach would be fun, but I've seen different things on Transformers and that looks fun as well. Hope you enjoy the game!

ODST is a very fun game, I don't know why people don't like it...

 

I don't think you have LIVE, Inferna (if you do we are not friends there), so skipping Reach was probably a good idea. I dunno how good War for Cybertron is without LIVE.

 

BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT MASS EFFECT 2 REGARDLESS (even if you already have it)

Who needs human contact when you can play Mass Effect? You aren't making sense.

 

Also since you would kill me because I would encourage Inferna to play single player games, then I would guess that she has A SECRET GAMERTAG.

Or, Inferna might not have gotten herself an ethernet cable yet, and thus has no account yet. :P

 

... I'LL GET ON IT I SWEAR.

That explains why you won't respond to my invites. :P
