Thread: BORROWSIES!

  1. #1

    BORROWSIES!

    At the Midwest NARP this year, some of us were talking about lending games back and forth in a non-permanent sense. For example, Cataract would send me game X, and when I was done, or when he wanted it back I would send it back. This would obviously be something more appealing to older members and those that have met in person, but I think it's good to have a thread for this. That way we can all play new things without having to permanently give something up in exchange.
    EDIT: This is also a great way to introduce people to a game you love that they may not have experienced.
    Sound good to you guys?

    I'm pretty sure it was Phil Collins who asked for it. Not sure though.

    I'll be requesting some stuff for the Xbawks once I get a power cord for my TV and things. I have a couple of good things on PS2, Wii, and Gamecube if people would like.

    Word. I'm glad you made the thread for this, btw.

    Anyway, I'd be glad to lend out some PS2 or 360 stuff for a little bit. I've got a good amount of stuff that I'm not playing at the moment.

    This might be something worthy of an invite-only google doc. You can sort by system, add on games that you have easily, etc. That way, we don't have to track through a big backlog of posts to find who owns what, and instead we can PM directly.

    I love lists and things.

    I think that'd be the perfect way to go about it.

    I think there are sites that do stuff like this. I'll look into it tonight.

    Thanks for bumping this spaceman, I missed it the first time around.

    I have quite a few old original Xbox games I'd be happy to loan out to people, if anyone is interested. (The 360 has something like 80% backwards compatibility, so MOST of them should work.)

    It hasn't really happened yet but that's probably because the only people who noticed the thread were the ones who had the idea in Ohio. I'd love for it to become something.

    We were talking about this in Skypetoid the other day, I'm gonna borrow AC2 from somebody and somebody else was gonna borrow AC Bro and then pass that to me. I think it was Arctic Fox, though I can't remember for sure who was offering and Skypetoid is being weird right now.

  15. #15
    Yeah it was Fox. I think he was gonna send me Bro. He kept saying 2 and I had to tell him like four times that I've already played 2.

    I'm starting to put together a google doc, but I want to make sure I have some sort of automation set up before I send the link out. Can anyone PM me a list of games that they're willing to lend out to people?

    I'll PM you the list now.
