Saints Row 3.

I'd been looking at it for a while and then saw a clip.

3 words....

Burt fucking Reynolds.

I was instantly sold on that game.
Wait, wait, wait, are you fucking kidding me? Its mother fucking Burt Reynolds in Saints Row 3? Why the fuck did nobody tell me this sooner? God dam it all mother fucking shit now I have to go out and buy that fucking game.
Yeah you can get him as a companion and the car he drives around in looks frucking amazing if I remember correctly.

All the guest acting in Command and Conquer Red Alert 3. Didn't think Ric Flair would lend his voice and record videos for an RTS game.

For pre-owned games (pre PS2 era) I'll pretty much always buy it if it has the original packaging. This isn't such a big deal for PSX games so consider this a blanket statement for Nintendo games from the N64 and back. I just got Predator on the NES because it was complete after all (also watching it on Challenge Monday made it seem like a must-buy).

As for current games...games that are generally looked down on make me take a second glance at them. Other M was one that I got new for a good price and even though people bitched about it when it was new, I'm having a lot of fun with it now (between Predator and, Mystic Quest that is)

Two things have me wanting to buy Guild Wars.
1. No dedicated healers... seriously, it just sounds entreating even when you think of the downsides
2. Charter story progression, it has always been a uninitiated part of many of my charters.

Overall i thin the oddest is Coors, the whole "Our beer is cold!" is just fucking stupid all things i put in the fridge are cold. An Iced tea company does this as well it make me want to not get their product because if the best thing about is is being cold it MUST be shit.

My dream is to one day run into a three-headed giant in a game voiced by Tim Curry, Patrick Stewart, and John Cleese.
As an aspiring game designer, I SO need to make a game involving that now...

OT: Don't think I've ever bought anything because I heard of a specifically odd selling point... though that's not to say I haven't played bloody weird games... Not that I can remember the name of half of them nowadays >.<

Def Jam: Fight for New York has Henry Rollins and Flavor Flav in it.

Seriously. That is a thing that happened.
