    ^ Yup, bored. I wanna buy something, but it must relate to my video games. Any ideas? I'll list the consoles I have.

    Dsi/Wii/XBOX 360/PSP

    ^I really don't play my Wii anymore, so things for the other consoles would be good. Any game recommendations? Accessories? Post them here. If I already have something you posted, I'll tell you. Post away.

    Oh, and I'm into RPG's like Kingdom Hearts, and Shooters like Halo 3.

    Possible Ideas:

    Nintendo Dsi, Extending Stylus
    Metro 2033
    Metroid Prime.

    Extendable metal stylii. They run less than $2 a pair on dealextreme.com. Assuming you don't have the tiny hands of a 7 year old Japanese girl, they will come in quite handy.

    Of course, this still leaves $43.61 and no life to deal with. Good luck with that.

    I know you said you don't play the Wii much, but you should get Metroid Prime Trilogy. That thing will last you FOREVER. I know it's about $50 retail price, but you can get it on eBay cheaper.

    It's a good chance I might get Skate 3. I played the demo, and it looked good.

    I was going to say Orange Box, but you didn't list PC. 360 Team Fortress 2 sucks compared to the PC version. Half Life 2 + episode 1 and 2 will still last you a long time and Portal will last you around 10 hours and it's fun to pick up every once in a while, but they are SP games.

    fable 2 http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDet...roduct_id=70785, it's a rpg and it's on the xbox 360 and it should be cheap now, or oblivion game of the year http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDet...roduct_id=66115 or fallout 3 game of the year http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDet...roduct_id=74996, it's dirt cheap (if you look around) and gives you 100s of hours worth of gameplay.

    I wanted to suggest the DSTWO, but seems you don't need one, so never mind...
