I just bought Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City and have been playing The Lost and the Damned segment on that I also just started Call of Duty 4 and find it incredibly addicting. I love my XBOX 360 and definitely think it was worth the price!

Who here intends to buy Bioshock 2 for the PC? Steam are doing a four pack pre-order BioShock® 2 - Age Verification works out cheaper per copy and each person gets a copy of the first Bioshock included to keep or gift.

The incentives of shopping Steam are incredible. I am honestly impressed with their marketing sense every time I hear something like this - if only Micro and Sony were to jump into a similar paradigm.

Unfortunately though, I will be picking that bad-boy up for the 360. Isn't it odd that I felt compelled to preface the previous sentence with "unfortunately?" Hmm... maybe a new gaming computer is in order?

Any advice on companies to shop with? Parts to buy if you suggest I build it?

You should feel bad, you're steering your character and you're doing it in low resolution!

I'm not familiar with Canadian stores (or Canadian prices) but in PC Gamer UK they built a very capable PC for under £900, including keyboard, headset, mouse and even monitor so it's cheaper than you may think. Their forums are very helpful too and you can even watch them build that very rig here and here.

The only site I have any experience with is the Canadian version of Tiger Direct www.tigerdirect.ca. I'm not sure if their prices are great but they are reliable and trustworthy.

Does anyone here own a Wii that hasn't used the Wii store yet? I'm trying to do the ambassador thing, if you help me out you get 500 points. Private message me if you're interested.

A friend made me try Prototype. That looks hilarious. It looks like what a Tetsuo - The Iron Man game could be.
