    I just stumbled upon and pre-owned EB Games sale and I was wondering if you people could suggest some titles. http://www.ebgames.com.au/promotion.cfm
    I have already looked at the essentials list but I still wanted to ask about it. I am looking to spend about 35-45 on this and although I would like a couple of games I also want ones with communities that are still alive. My only definite purchase so far is Rainbow Six: Vegas and I would like some advice on what else to get.

    Perhaps but I do not want to blow my budget on only 1 game. If I were to do that, I would get Mass Effect.

    Oh come on, it's not a bad game. 50 Cent: Bulletproof is a Japanese RPG that, while not being particularly mind-blowing, succeeds in all the right places and with an unmistakable charm that makes for a truly enjoyable experience. Fans of the genre will be more than satisfied, and even JRPG newcomers will find something appealing in this welcome addition to the 50 Cent franchise. You play as 50 Cent, a restless youth living in the lower quarter of Imperial Capital of New York whose brief stint with the Imperial Knights leaves him embittered by his own government's corruption. When a thief makes off with the lower quarter's aque blastia core, a device that provides clean running water for the people, 50 takes this opportunity to sate his own appetite for adventure by setting off in pursuit of the precious item. Along the way, he tags up with Tupac, a stereotypically naive noble, and the two set off together in search of the lost blastia beyond the safety of the city walls. As expected, eventually the duo become entangled in a mess of political intrigue and underhanded plotting that extends far beyond the matter of a simple stolen blastia. Ultimately, 50 Cent: Bulletproof presents a narrative that is well-designed but wholly unremarkable. The plot adheres to the archetypal themes we have come to expect to be present in all JRPGs, but it fails to achieve anything novel with them. Yes, there are surprise twists interspersed throughout to liven things up, but these twists are for the most part not very shocking. Still, the story is engaging enough with sufficient depth to keep the player interested, even if it falls a few feet short of profoundly epic.

    Wow. You have way to much time on your hand. I mean, making Bulletproof sound somewhat of a decent game is a huge accomplishment.

    Just because an African American made that game doesn't mean you have to be so bias about it! You know its so freakin hard to make a black game that doesn't suck ass! Look at GTA: San Andres, that game suck so hard that it receive 1/10 and that's sad for a PS2 game. [​IMG]

    Okay. I think this is getting enough off topic. Any more relevant posts would be greatly appreciated.

    I managed to scrounge up some more money so am probably getting Rainbow Six: Vegas and Mass Effect

    EDIT: Just curious but did anyone that actually answered my topic actually look at the deals?
