So, as I've been sick for the past few days, and I basically spent all of yesterday in my room with a pile of kleenexes, feeling like death and bored to tears ... I did the obvious thing, and bought Saint's Row 2 on the Steam.
Not exactly a good game, but pretty good entertainment. What it did more than anything, though, was make me want to play GTAIV. So, I bought the Ballad of Gay Tony, which I have yet to play. We'll see how that turns out.
Edit: I'd almost forgotten how frustrating GTA can occasionally be. I mean, having a life bar, that's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, not even since Al Gore invented regenerating health. But cut me some slack! You could at least give me back my health after I finish a mission.
Aside from that, I'm mostly struck by the sheer size of GTA DLC. I mean, granted, it cost me 1200 points, which is fairly expensive, but ... still nothing compared to the price of a full game. Yet they offer more content than many games do, and more play-time.
