I'll probably get one next year for my daughter when they come down in price a little.

My friend helped me install Minecraft on my computer and make it so it won't lag so much. I'm loving it Very Happy

Any of you guys watch e3? It's way too flashy and it's like takes all day for only 2 real hours of content. I saw some of the highlights though. The PS4 looks amazing. And Nintendo's games look great too.

I don't watch e3 but I did see a few pictures of the ps4. It looks pretty awesome.
Yesterday went to the library and rented out Portal 2. Best idea yet. The game is really different from anything I've ever seen. I mean, I have seen the trailer for it and stuff as well and s a bit from the first Portal but I mean...it's sooo good. Might consider buying it at GameStop Very Happy Also been playing the second Spyro. It's a kid's game, I know, but I used to play the first one as a child. It was my favorite game Smile

If you rented the game and have the stuff on your computer, you may still be able to play it after you return the game by downloading a noCD crack which allows the game to be played without a disc.

Also, I like to download games from Steam.

I rented Portal 2 for the Xbox 360, not the computer unfortunately. Even if I did, my laptop wouldn't really be able to process it. I mean, I could play it, but the gameplay and the frame rate would be really low. My laptop just isn't that fast. I wish it was though xD

Rented the game The Last Of Us on the PS3. I have to say...it's quite unique, and the intro really hooked me. Been playing it one day already (not counting this one xD) and I'm still really happy with it. When I've gotten to the end and beat the game, I think I'll return it. It's one of those games you would play once and then not play again because you would know everything that would happen. But that's just me lol.

I've never rented a game before. Where do you go to rent games from?

I don't know about where you're from, but here you rent games from the same place you rent DVDs.

We rent games from both the local library and RedBox. It's literally a tall, red box where you rent dvds, blue-rays, and games from Very Happy

Also...I finished the game The Last Of Us on the PS3 and....wow. It was a beautiful game. Not only was the gameplay awesome, but the storyline was fantastic. The character development throughout the game was also brilliant and, at times, I almost teared up. I think this game will be talked about for years.

You rent games from a tall red box? How do you return it?

You just go back to it, click return on the touch screen and then put it back in the slot. Unfortunately, you can only use a card on it. It doesn't accept cash.

But since it's not a real person, then how can it make sure that you return it?

I think there's a code on the CD that allows the machine to tell whether or not it's returned. I've never really had any problems with it before Razz

That's not what I mean. I mean if the box 'rents' out a game to you, how can it be sure that you will return it? And if you don't, can't you just go back and 'rent' another one and you would essentially be buying games for the price of a rent?

It has your card on file. With DVDs, it charges a dollar a day to rent, up to like 30 days or something, then it's essentially purchased. Redbox's system works.

Are you asking if you can go to the bank and cancel your current card to avoid paying a few bucks for a rental? Seems like you're promoting fraud to me.

Back when Mr. movies was open in my area we could rent games as well as movies. Shame they had to close down.

I'm not promoting fraud, I'm questioning how that system works against repeated theft. Because I don't see why someone can't just steal game after game for a dollar each.

Every day it's two dollars to rent a game. If you keep the game for more than thirty days, you'll be charged $60...

Only if you go back though. So how does it work? You go to the box, put in your credit card, they charge you $2 for the first day and when you come back to return it they charge you the rest of the bill then you can rent another game?

If you don't return it, you'll be charged the full sixty. You'll get a charge every day it's out, until the limit is reached, and it's essentially purchased. Pretty sure I've already said that.

Since I feel I need to, let me quote the wikipedia entry. It's regarding DVD rentals, but the same basic principles apply.

Quote:
The customer pays with a credit card or debit card. DVDs can be returned the next day to any of the company's kiosks; charges accrue up to 25 days, after which the customer then owns the DVD (without the original case) and rental charges cease.
