Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

I used Fallout as the example because that's the game Thom said he was interested in. I did Bully on the PS2 back in the day. No problems there. Does anybody actually care about Duke Nuke'em anymore?

6 years out of date? The 360 Slim with the Valhalla chip just came out last year. It's good enough for RDR, Saboteur, Midnight Club: LA, and pretty soon L.A. Noir. Sure anybody who spends $50 for a new game is foolish, but you can get used for $10-20.

Doesn't sound like you're running top of the line hardware either. Sounds like you built something you could have bought off the shelf at Staples. Most people who build gaming rigs, build something more like an Alienware. And did you download yourself a bootleg copy of Windows for it or did you go ahead and shell out another $100 and something for that too? Have you actually come up with a total for how much you spent on this thing?
