I decided to invest in the GameFly subscription service. It's not nearly as cost efficient as Netflix, but the introductory price for the first month, with two discs out, is $10. I figure within a month, I'll know whether or not it's worth it. Or at least I hope so anyway, because after the first month the price jumps up to $22 a month for the two-disc package. Yikes. The two games I have on the way are Kirby's Epic Yarn for the Wii and Call of Duty: Black Ops for XBox 360. I refuse to pay for COD: Black Ops simply because I've had a chance to play it a few times, and I can't justify owning it. It's not nearly as good as it's predecessor, Modern Warfare 2. I'm just not as much of a fan of Treyarch (the developers of COD:BO) as I am of Infinity Ward. And since Infinity Ward is practically non-existant now, I don't know that I'll purchase any future COD titles. But alas, the majority of my friends on XBox Live are playing Black Ops, so I have to find some way to join in on the fun until interest subsides. On the other hand, I am looking forward to Kirby's Epic Yarn. I had a chance to briefly play it at a kiosk in a retail location, and the few minutes I played it was enough to hook me. Oh, and don't worry, the irony is not lost on me that the two games I chose to kick-off my subscription to GameFly couldn't be more oposite. Cute and fluffy Kirby and war-mongering Call of Duty make strange bedfellows, but what can I say? I have a varied palette. To subscribe to GameFly yourself, click here.
