I received a few Best Buy gift certificates for my birthday and finally made it there this week to pick up a few items. I wanted to stay away from items I’d normally buy myself or that would qualify as a business expense, so that left me out of the computer aisles.
Here’s what I ended up getting:
Stargate – The Ark of Truth: I debated on getting a full season of Stargate SG-1 that I didn’t have, but this was newer and not on TV yet. Decent for what’s really a two-part episode, though for the cost I think I’d rather have a season of SG-1 or even Atlantis (which were on sale for a few dollars more).
Logitech PlayStation 2 Cordless Action Controller: I don’t have a lot of time to play video games these days, but when I do it is a must to not have cords on the floor with the kids running around. Plus my couch isn’t all that close to the TV. I’ve had one of these controllers for a few months and just love it and decided to add a second one to replace my old (too-small-for-my-big-fat-hands) controller. And as a bonus, these have great battery life and they come with real batteries (Duracell), not some no-name junk.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08: As I said, I don’t have a lot of time to play video games…I’ve got a house full of kids and am now running two businesses. So games that I play must be short and have a definitive end to them (I started a game of Ratchet & Clank probably four years ago and am not done…and probably never will be). For that reason, I like to stick to sports games (other than football). The only golf game I had was an old “Hot Shots” (which isn’t all that great), but I’ve played Tiger Woods 07 on my friend’s Wii and loved it so I decided to give the PS2 version a whirl. This one won’t get old any time soon.
So there you have it. And for those of you who gave me the gift cards, thanks!
